A valuable dogfish gave Darren Short first place in the North Devon League end of season Champions of Champions sea angling competition.

His 2lbs 11oz fish was the only entry during another difficult night for anglers.

Barnstaple Rod ‘n’ Reelers took the league trophy and Dave Brooke of Combe Martin won the trophy for best specimen with a 13lbs- plus bull huss.

The league would be keen to hear from any anglers who wish to enter a team for the new season, which starts in June.

There is no need to belong to a club, teams can be a group of friends, regulars at a local pub or work colleagues.

The format is teams of four fishing monthly roving competitions for best specimen, with cash prizes for the first three places and points towards the team total.

To find out more or to register, call Arthur Johns on 07765 857916 before the first competition on June 15.
