The Angling Trust Wyvern Region held their awards in Exeter and around 100 turned out collect their awards, writes Mike Spiller.

The Wyvern were very pleased with this turn out.

The evening started with a short talk on the work being carried out in Lyme Bay Marine Reserve by Neville Copperthwaite of the group ‘Blue’.

This reserve has been in operation for around five years and some say that this might be how the new MCZ will operate in the future.

This was followed by the main awards plus all the fish of the month awards from last year.

In terms of the major awards; The best overall specimen winner, winning the Castle Trophy was Rob Yorke of Rodbenders SAC, thanks to a blonde ray of 26lbs 10oz caught from the shore.

The Best Junior Shore award went to Corey Upham of Brixham SAC with a mackerel of 2lbs 4ozs.

The best junior boat award went to Sam Jordan of Brixham SAC with a golden great mullet and the best lady award went to Naomi Coulson of Paignton SAA who also secured a new British boat record with a golden grey mullet that weighed in at 2lbs 15oz.
