Five members of Honiton Sea Angling Club have returned from Southern Ireland after having a week's fishing in these fish-rich waters

Five members of Honiton Sea Angling Club have returned from Southern Ireland after having a week's fishing in these fish-rich waters. Fifteen species were caught and some of these included, pollack, flounder, thornback ray, spotted ray, conger, bull huss, dabs and wrasse. All the anglers had to find shelter from the strong winds all week and the very heavy swells that were battering the Ring of Kerry. Best fish of the week went to Ken Sparks who landed a nice shore pollack of 6-8-0. Last weekend saw the first of the club kayak competitions to be held. In all, six 'yaks' fished at Ladram Bay on a catch-and-release basis. It is hoped to fish from different venues locally each Friday evening, weather permitting. The idea will be to target set species each time.More details on the club can be obtained from Mike Spiller on (01404) 43397 or at the club website at www.honitonsac.co.uk
