Fishing Competition 2009
With the sun sparkling on the water, 15 young people took part in the annual Junior Fishing Competition on Saturday 12th of September.
Fishing took place between 9.00am and 3.00pm, with the participants ready and raring to go well before 9.00, waiting for the blast on the car horn to signal the start of the competition.
Refreshments were provided during the day for the competitors and their supporters and everyone agreed it was a very successful day. All competitors this year were lads, so we’re hoping for some girls next year, as we have had previously.
The sun continued to shine, making the day most enjoyable for all who participated, whether fishing or watching. The weigh-in at the end of the competition was most impressive and saw some very anxious faces amongst the competitors!
First prize for most fish caught by weight was very deservedly won by Tom Borgognoni, second by Robert Mitchell and third by George McDowell. George also won the trophy for the biggest fish and Ben Bassett was awarded the Bailiff’s cup. No-one went home empty handed as all competitors received a gift to thank them for taking part.
The Loch Neaton Trustees would like to extend their thanks to all who contributed to the day’s success, especially Rudlings for the donation of a Landing Net for one of the prizes and the Sports Centre for the catering and use of the toilet facilities.
