Osman Cup Beach Competition results

Pessimism ensued that there would be anything to weigh in for the 8 anglers taking part in the Heron’s Osman Cup Beach Competition on Sunday the 22nd April as the  sun was shining brightly, the water was gin-clear and the beaches were packed with people. Never good fishing conditions. 
Nonetheless they all set out and persevered. I. Morris landed a thornback ray fishing near Bishopstone, his first from the shore, but unfortunately for Ian, the fish was undersize. 
Meanwhile T. Morris reported dropping a fish from the West beach. Things were poor indeed. 
However one member did return with a sizeable catch for the win, B. Morris landed a thornback ray of his own of 4lbs 13.4oz also fishing near Bishopstone and claimed all 12pts putting him in the current lead position for the championship. 

Full results as follows 
1st- B. Morris, 1 fish, 4lbs 13.4oz

B Morris 4lbs 13oz Ray
