Only 2 juniors braved the rain for the second leg of Colwyn Bay Victoria sea angling clubs junior winter league at Tan Lan yesterday evening.
Fishing 1 down and 2 up, the kids took up positions either side of the stone breakwater so they could target the Rockling that feed around the structure.
All was quiet until darkness fell, when Thomas Jones was first to register a bite. This resulted in the first fish which was a Rockling measured at 22cms and released.
The other Thomas ( Davies ) was next to catch with a better fish of 25cms taking him into the lead.
The tide was flooding by now and the fish came on to the feed. Both of the kids continued to get bites but it was Tom J who managed to take advantage and move into the lead with a fish of 21cms, followed by another of 22cms.
Tom D was missing bites as the tide pushed us back up the groyne, but Tom J managed a double header to move well clear.
The match ended at 8pm and the rain had stopped by now so we could load the cars up and do the prize giving in the dry.
Thomas Jones won the match and £10 1st prize with 5 Rockling for a total length of 98cms. Thomas Davies was second with 1 Rockling of 25cms which earned him £5.
