Bexhill Sea Angling Festival - Festival Weekend Competitions - 6th and 7th September 2014

The Bexhill Sea Angling Festival got off to an excellent start on Saturday 6th September with the first of the angling competitions, the Kayak Match which was sponsored by Anglers Den. This competition was fished as a photo recorded, catch and release species hunt.

Pictured below are the winners who were presented with their prizes by Sam Morgan of Anglers Den.
1st Mark Radcliffe - 8 species
2nd Martin Collison - 6 species
3rd Mark Hobbs - 5 species

Sunday 7th September was the turn of the Junior Pegged Beach Match on Bexhill Seafront which was fished in difficult conditions with bright sunshine and flat calm seas with a dropping tide.

The Junior Match was sponsored by Anglers Den and the result was joint first for two juniors who both caught Smoothounds - pictured below are Martin Payne and Dan Tillett receiving their prizes from Glyn Morgan.

The Anglers Den stand was located in the new Angling Village at the Festival this year, alongside other fishing tackle shops and suppliers, and a range of other angling organisations. Glyn spent the weekend demonstrating various angling techniques and equipment, as well as enjoying the beautiful sunshine, and some festival cuisine!
