Event : Keep It Reel - Coarse Fishing

Our annual coarse fishing evening returned on the 13th June at Whitmore Fisheries, Kirkham to another full house of entrants from Clitheroe Youth, Tommy’s, Blackpool B&G and Brunshaw Action Group.

Under the watchful eye and guidance of Pete & Adam Riley (Blackpool B&G) and Andy (volunteer) everyone sat down and waited, and waited and waited. Unlike previous years the fishing was really slow and when the fish did come they soon went again, but at least the weather was better than forecast!

Conditions didn’t improve for the competition either, which made it hard going for everyone, however credit to all the young people, there was no complaining and they kept their focus.

The results were as follows:

Junior Winner:                    Max Hickling                        Clitheroe Youth

Junior Runner Up:             Ewan Jackson                      Clitheroe Youth

                                              Declan Gawthorpe             Clitheroe Youth


Senior Winner:                    Rob Gray                              Brunshaw Action Group

Senior Runner Up:             Dallas Jackson                   Tommy’s


Despite the poor fishing, no doubt we will return next year as eager as ever and leaving with tales about the one that got away!

A big thank you goes to Pete & Adam Riley & Andy (not LABGC!) for running the evening and also to Wayne’s Tackle of Preston who supplied the bait for the night.
