Club members have again started the year strongly with many good specimen fish being recorded, writes Mike Spiller.

Fish like this cracking ballan wrasse of 5lb 3oz for club member Karl Roberts from Sidmouth. Roberts’ fishing partner on the day also had a cracking wrasse too, not so big but still a good one at 4lb 2oz for Bill Cassar.

Both fish were caught on hard back crab in the east of the region.

The East Devon club is still celebrating as being placed second in the whole country in the recent Angling Trust specimen award scheme; the 70 members of the club gained second spot with 109 awards.

Paignton SAA came out as winners with 130.
