Morpeth Lions Club
THE club’s Fontburn Fishing Festival was blessed with mainly dry but cool weather.
Nevertheless, some good catches were achieved by the 75 anglers of all ages who entered the competition at the Northumbrian Water facilities.
It proved to be a record year, with 424 fish caught weighing 689 pounds in total, and 36 anglers achieved the eight-bag maximum.
Organiser Graham Tait thanked the water company and sponsors J Barbour & Sons and Frasers Angling & Outdoors as well as the Wansbeck Angling Association for its support on the day.
