Junior League 12/06/2016

It’s pleasing for those running the junior league matches that the club has had a steady increase in juniors taking part. The Sunday competition held on Burnham Beach was attended by 8 youngsters including three newcomers. A total of 20 fish were beached compising mainly of small Sole and a few Silver Eels.

Newcomer Lily Thompson who was being mentored by John Lintern had never been fishing before won with 7 fish (153cm). I wish John would give me some lessons! Harrison Izzard came second (103cm) and Grace Carpenter, another newcomer was third (71cm).

Harrison Izzard caught the best Sole of 32cm although he was afraid to pick it up! and Oliver Carpenter showed great excitment on catching a 42cm Silver Eel.

The next junior league match is again at Burnham Low Light on July 30th. Fishing 14.30-17.00.
