Our anglers who were at Culdaff and Scrabster have now returned and two successful trips they were.

The Scrabster lads fished two days and caught plenty, including cod, ling, mackerel, pollock, and coalfish.

And the lads who went to Culdaff had a great time.

They were able to fish the full six days and the weather was the best they have fished in the whole of the 26 years they have gone there, with calm seas and plenty of sun.

They finished up with six boxes of pollock, two boxes of cod, one box of coalfish, one box of ling and plenty of scad and mackerel.

The best catch in three days was 20 tope. The biggest one was 44lb, caught by Peter Higgins. All the tope were weighed and returned back into the sea alive.


The heavy rain last Saturday reduced catches in the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. The winner was R. Thorne, with 2lb 9oz.

B. Mason came second, while third and section winner was J. Mason. Fourth and section winner was E. Harrison, while P. Smith finished fifth.

Tomorrow's match is on the same length. The draw is at 9am in the Armley car park.


Last week's match for the Lower Aire Championship, which is run in conjunction with Bradford No1 A.A., was won by H. Foster from peg one, with 53lb.

P. Clark was second with 18lb 9oz.

This week's match (on Sunday) is the annual match to be held at Hunter's Lodge, Linton, followed by the Bank Holiday match on Monday on the River Aire.
