Koi wins junior beach open
Weston Sea Angling Association’s junior open beach fishing competition was won by five-year-old Koi Garrard.
WESTON Sea Angling Association held their annual junior open beach fishing competition, which has been running for 25 years and every match has been kindly sponsored by John May of Wrington.
In the past, several young anglers who first entered this competition went on and fished for England. This year, the youngest angler in the competition, five-year-old Koi Garrard of Weston, triumphed with a catch of two flounders and a total length of 54cms.
Youngsters had their fish measured and are encouraged to return them to the sea alive.
For his efforts, Koi won a mountain bike. Second with another two flounders measuring 42cms was Lucas Kellow of Weston, and third with a single flounder of 18cms was Ryan Frewin of Axbridge.
