Whitby & District Coarse Angling Club travelled to Woodland Lakes at Thirsk on Sunday 14 August, fishing on Swallow Lake for The Summer Cup and Biggest Fish trophies.

At the start of fishing the fish were proving to be elusive, but as the match progressed the catch rate was increasing.

With the last 90 minutes of the match the fish switched on to feeding mode, with pellets taking most of the fish.

First place was Gary Smith with 44lb 12oz, second Richard Tilburn 27lb, 5oz, third Sam Bottomley with 22lb. Biggest fish Gary Smith 8lb 8oz.
