Fur and Feather : 29th December 5pm-9pm : Harbour Walls

On a very wet and windy night 16 anglers took part in the annual end of season Fur and Feather comp held around Ramsey. Anglers made their way to the nights favoured spots trying to catch the nights heaviest fish which would take the win. Ian Ashcroft braved the strong wind on the North Pier and was rewarded with the win catching his dogfish on the very first cast. Paul Graham, another North Pier regular finished 2nd also winning the nights novelty category of lightest Dogfish with a barely sizable 15oz specimen. On a night when most anglers were glad to finish the competition early Andy Dugdale was rewarded for his perseverance when he landed a Bass on his last cast for 3rd place.

Anglers the retired to the Swan for a welcome buffet and raffle to which thanks go to the Staff at the swan for the food and the clubs committee for the raffle prizes.
