7:30 am at the Northfield Club, Withernsea, East Yorkshire and it is time for the draw for the Daiwa British Junior Championship. The organisers have already visited the beach and reported back that conditions look perfect, so with the draw complete, group picture taken, it was off to the beach. It didn’t take long for the 30 competitors to get ready and for the match to get underway. Fish were caught steadily during the day and it was great to see them all taking it very seriously but having a great time as well. There were plenty of Stewards on hand to measure the fish and also, plenty of parents, relatives and friends to offer support. The match finished at 1-00 p.m. and it was time to head back Northfield Club and an anxious wait whilst the organisers checked the return slips and sorted out the results.

What an enjoyable weekend. Two days of watching lots of junior anglers, with their parents and coaches having a great time out in the fresh air writes Daiwa Consultant Brian Skoyles. Saturday was a day on the beach as a guest of the Commercial Sea Angling Club, organisers of the “Daiwa Beach Open”. This is a great two-day event with the juniors on the Saturday, and the main open event on the Sunday. I attended the junior event and was, as in previous years, amazed at the skill levels shown by many of the juniors. Sunday, instead of going back to the beach for the senior event, I attended the second in a series of “Junior Pike Academies” organised by Hull and District Angling Association.
