A charity angling match has raised £300 for Yorkshire Cancer Research with over 30 fish being landed.
Twenty anglers took part in the annual overnight charity carp match, which was hosted by Rosedale Fishing lake in Hunmanby.
Organiser Stuart Hebden was delighted with the event. He said: “After prize money of £250 and an engraved trophy for the biggest carp (won by Chris Matson) we managed to raise £300 for Yorkshire Cancer Research. Well done to all the anglers – it was a pleasure to have you all at Rosedale and take part in the match.”
The match started at 6 pm with a bitterly cold easterly wind making difficult conditions for the anglers.
As darkness fell and temperatures dropped to 2 degrees, fish started to feed and many carp were caught, weighed and returned.
Michael Darling landed a carp of 9lb 13oz overnight and caught a whopper at 11lb 13oz the next morning.
Meanwhile, Chris Matson still hadn’t had a fish in his net, but by 3pm he managed to land 4 carp in a short space of time – the biggest weighing 12lb 11oz.
The organisers would like to thank Kim for cooking breakfast, and Pete and Mel for their permission to use the lake.
