North-east anglers enjoy team success at Bristol

Congratulations to the team of Scottish anglers including North-east fishers, Chris McAlister, Kevin Neri and Tyler Hay, for winning the Lexus team competition at Chew Valley Reservoir, near Bristol, against top teams from all over the UK.

In the less hallowed surroundings of Lochter Fishery, anglers continued to enjoy themselves. Dave Wright was top hooker with eight on his buzzers, while Bill Gibb mastered the breezy conditions and got his line out to tempt nine. Jim Sangster did try very hard and was rewarded with seven. A score of unlucky thirteen almost meant the sin-bin for Steve Corsar and the weekend Ed with a stand off between Craig and James McLean, the latter finishing strongly to win by 19-12.

The fishing continues to be enjoyable and productive with the cooler conditions keeping the fish on the feed.
