A special vote of thanks must go to all the shopkeepers of Aldeburgh and Leiston for their generous contributions. Thanks also go to all the tackle shops who gave their support and to those who helped to make it a success.
A fantastic result too, with a junior taking the top prize and beating all those so-called professional match rods! In all 220 anglers took part, including six ladies and ten juniors.
