Junior Wyvern Open at Teignmouth

The Wyvern junior Open shore competition was held at Teignmouth on Sunday 17th August 2008.  Organisers feared the worse on Saturday with high winds and driving rain all day, but Sundays forecast was spot on with lighter winds and rain forecast coming later on Sunday.
A very good entry of 49 juniors signed on to fish this event which ran from 1pm till 5pm on the lower stretches of the River Teign.  Most of the entrants fished along the back beach and up around to Polly Steps, the heavy rain of the day before was starting to reach the lower stretches and most there on the day new that the fishing would be difficult due to this fresh water being in the river.
At the weigh-in it was evident that fish were scarce but two fish made it through to the scales based in the Teignmouth SAS club hut on the back beach, one Silver Eel and one Flounder, both fish after weighing were released alive back into the river.
In first spot was William Messenger (T and B ASA) with his Eel of 1.68lb (67.2%) this gave William a great prize of 12 foot Piranha power surf rod, Okuma reel, waterproof leggings, hat and tea shirt. William also won the new trophy for the best junior 'The McCormack Trophy.
Second place went to Teignmouth SAS club junior Bobby Drew, he weighed in a Flounder of .935lb (37.4%)  This won Bobby a 9 foot Abu spinning rod and reel and numerous bits of tackle and also the Teignmouth SAS shield.  
Best team of two went to William Messenger and Sophie Messenger, this gave them both new tripod rod rest.  Second team of two went to Bobby Drew and Sean Blackmore, this won them a cool box and multi tool each.   After the event all the juniors recieved a very good goodie bag and all enjoyed light refreshments laid on by the Wyvern Division.
The Division would like to thank everyone that sponsored this event, however big or small.  This in turn allows us to make this event happen each year for the juniors in the area.
