The junior festival is back for the third year and has grown each year in numbers with 38 juniors aged 15 and under fishing the festival this year.
The lakes being used are once again Jennys & Trelawney, which have proved popular with the youngsters.
Drennan have once again pledged their support and this year as well as a goodie bag for all entrants they have also supplied some amazing prizes as well as additional prizes brought with the sponsorship money from Coke and their entrance fees.
It was a smashing weekend and despite a cool breeze it was a gloriously sunny two days and we saw some great fishing and great weights.
A section headed of to Jennys for the first day and the section winners were Michael Chung & William Buckie. Michael was on peg 4 and fished mainly on the pellet waggler and also on the pole at 7 meters finishing with a weight of 47lb 4oz. William finished with 38lb 11oz and fished the feeder with meat & corn from peg 18. Luke Hancock had the next best weight on the lake with 35lb 14oz, Luke was on peg 19 and caught roach & rudd short at 3 meters on caster and also caught on the waggler to the island with sweet corn & pellet.
