Our second festival of the year was held 23rd to 25th September and saw 32 anglers compete in 3 sections rotating between different areas of the lakes.

With the weather earlier in the week taking on an autumnal feel it and with winds in excess of 30mph it certainly made conditions challenging for all and lead to a tight competition.

Going into the final day there were 5 anglers with just 4 points and a further 16 with it all to play for.

Congratulations to Mick Shanks for winning with 6 points and a total weight of 257lb 11oz, Martin Makin for second place also with 6 points and a total weight of 161lb 9oz and third place Mark Bexton with 7 points and total weight of 209lb 14oz.

It was great to welcome all anglers to Swanlands and we would like to say a heart felt thank you to you all for supporting us in this difficult year.

Next year we will be holding festivals in May and August, more details will be posted in due course.
