EASTERN - 1st leg 25.10.18 Orford Island

Nine anglers from the Eastern Region fished the event and met on Orford Quay at about 07.00am. Weather conditions were favourable with 
a slightly overcast day and light North Westerly winds. Following a quick chat and issue of match cards all the anglers boarded the boat for
 
the short river crossing to the island and after a short walk across the beach all anglers set up and began fishing.

Fishing started as soon as anglers had set up and initial local reports of lots Whiting being caught soon proved to be correct.
Most anglers 
were soon catching fish which included many sizeable. The match rules meant that all fish over 18cms were sizeable except for Whiting, 
Cod and Bass which were SAMF size limits. Fish showed all the way through the match with most anglers catching lots of sizeable and 
undersize fish. Many anglers were regularly catching double and treble shots of fish. The match finished at about 15:15 and the anglers 
packed up and returned to the ferry point for the short boat trip back to the Quay to hand in their match cards.

A total of 264 sizeable fish were caught consisting of 234 Whiting, 27 Dogfish, 1 Dab and 2 Pouting with many more undersize fish returned. 
Winning angler on the day was Kevin Eley with 53 fish for 1075 fish points, second place was Dave Holmes with 36 fish for 733 fish points 
and third place was Bill Mitcham with 26 fish for 673 fish points. Biggest round fish was a 60cm Dogfish caught by Keith Bleach and 
biggest flatfish was a 22cm Dab again caught by Keith Bleach.

A big thank you goes out to all the competitors who attended this event and followed the measure and release rules, including the use of 
buckets of sea water for transporting fish between anglers, which meant the safe return of fish with very few fatalities.

Well, what a funny day! Calm sea, light rain for the first half of the competition then sunshine.

Ten anglers took part at this new venue , for five hours of this six hour match no-one had a hint of a bite. Then, as lines were pulled in at the close of the match Chris Denton had a Silver Eel and at the other end of the beach Tracey Phipps had a small Plaice.

In spite of the lack of fish, the venue was met with approval from all those that took part. easy parking, easy access and a cafe and toilets.  

2nd leg - Abbotsbury 08/11/19

A very successful heat was completed in a window of settled weather. The sky was clear and sunny with a chilly northerly breeze ending
in a glorious sunset. 

Everyone caught fish although many of them were below the 18cms size limit. A total of 115 fish of seven different species were recorded.

Winner on the day was Andy Daniels with 20 fish for 616 points followed by Tracy Phipps with 21 fish for 565 points. These two anglers 
will join Chris DEnton (winner of the first heat) in next year's final.
