THE latest BCFSA Browning Trophy saw 110 anglers attend the shoreline of Blue Anchor Bay, near Minehead.

With weather set fair for most of the day, all were hoping to catch the codling that seem to be in large numbers throughout the channel this year.

Most were not disappointed, including the winner Weston Outcast Mike Busby, who landed five codling, a dogfish and a bass to take first place and £150.

Second place was taken by Weston angler and England international Jon Lintern. Mike’s first ever competition win was well deserved and the smile on his face for the rest of the evening showed his pleasure.

With the help of the rest of the Weston Outcasts 10-man team, the Browning Trophy was retained with over 10 metres of fish.

Father and son outfit and Weston Outcasts Steve and Brandon Pettit also deserve a mention as Steve won the longest cod prize at 57 inches and Brandon the greatest length in fish for a junior with two codling in size.

This was also a mirror of last year’s results with both picking up these two awards in 2009. The new father and son trophy was also collected by them on the day.

Team captain Phytos Yianni said his and the match secretary’s only problem was who to choose to fish on the day as there are so many excellent anglers within the club at present.
