Junior v Seniors 14/08/2016

The annual Junior versus Senior competition took place at Burnham Low Light on a hot calm sunny day. We decided that in fairness to the juniors who took part to have the juniors and ladies against the men, making two teams of five.

The star of the competition was 3 year old Alfie Salter who put the rest of us to shame by catching 2 bass and a silver eel measuring a total of 101cm. The nearest to Alfie was his Grandfather Mike Tanner with 4 fish measuring 62cm.

When the total lengths were added up the juniors with 193cm were declared the winners for the second year running. The men totalled 186cm.

The catches comprised of small bass and sole 1 flounder, 1 whiting and 1 silver eel. Alfie took the prize for the longest round fish (silver eel 50cm) and Steve Sparks had the longest flatfish a sole of 27cm.

Well done to the junior team, us seniors must improve for next year.
