Twenty anglers competed in Combe Martin Sea Angling Clubs week long competition to catch the best mixed brace of specimens. The event was held in conjunction with the Lyn Sailing Club with  proceeds split between Combe Martin SAC and the 1st  Lyn Scout Group. Several anglers invested a degree of effort into seeking out specimens from both boat and shore.

The presentation was held at the Ancient Mariner at Lynmouth as part of the Lynmouth Maritime Festival. The winner of the event was James Fradgley Gubb who boated a fine specimen tope of 50lb and a blonde ray of 12lb 12oz a combined rating of 210%.

James was also presented with a special prize from Ardosia Slate for the best specimen fish caught during the week.
