Anglers are not the only people who use our rivers and waterways, boaters, walkers and families on days out all frequent these beautiful spots! However, as responsible naturalists and sportsmen, we can use our time at the bank for the greater good! Anglers probably contribute a fraction to the litter problem, but by taking just 5 pieces of litter home with us or depositing it in the bin where it should be, we can make a huge difference to our environment. goo.gl/XstnZ8
Apparently we have taken a blasting recently about our slapton open on a local face book group by a competitor on the day who said he felt dissatisfied that after turning up to sign on 15 minutes before the fishing start time (1pm), he could not find a place to fish infront the car park lol. He also asked why we did not fish the torcross end! All we can say is if the gentleman had bothered to come along and looked at it at 10am like the 81 other competitors did, A/ HE would have seen the conditions then we were faced with B/ he probably would have got a space in front either car park.
We would like to thank everyone else who supported our event, it was a tuff day to fish, and our entry took a hit but thanks to you all for your support.
When we arrived at the Memorial car park 3 hours before the start, Torcross side was not safe to fish and it was the best decision made however we lost tons of gear in front of the car park on lost fishing gear. Good decision and anyone one went home safe
well done Dave Terry ,ben ,danny .The days fishing was a challenge , but isnt that what you want from a comp ...while the organisers change the bonderies because of concerns of the torcross area......im not update about the ruling of allowing adults to cast for juniors ...but would hope that when conditions has there were on the day ..this would have been allowed ..so that juniors ,would not have tried to get to close to gain distance required to get over the front breaker...thnx Wyvern Sea Angling
Sensible decision to exclude torcross end. I wonder if this late entry was the chap who walked the beach trying to "slot in between" unwilling fisherman (me included) because he didn't want to walk to find a space!? Shame a few did just that thereby pushing those who had arrived early closer together causing unnecessary tangles between anglers but some people don't seem to respect the rules regardless. My only complaint is that the fish I did catch were all too small but at least I tried!
