Fire means anglers miss weigh-in

WEDNESDAY night’s three-hour Whitby Sea Anglers’ Association match started a little before high water, with the sea looking like a mill pond.

Light south westerly winds saw the anglers travelling far and wide for a cliff/pier mark, in search of an odd codling.

The closure of the A171 at Stainsacre, due to a fire, made those anglers who had travelled south late for the weigh-in at 10.30pm, with one successful angler missing the weigh-in.

Results: 1 Dave Hambley 1 fish for 1 lb 03 oz, 2 Denis Thompson 2 fish for 09 oz, 3 Andrew Cass 1 fish for 04 oz.
