Stawell angling season comes to an end | Photos

Stawell Angling Club members gathered at Lake Fyans for their final competition of the season across the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

The weather was great for the competition with fish biting consistently.

Fishing was a little quiet for the bigger redfin, while the smaller fish produced good fishing as they tended to be schooled up.

Doug Collins dominated the field, reeling in 15 redfin for an aggregate length of 417 centimetres to take top honours.

Gary Miller finished second with seven redfin at 195.5cm. John Smith landed six fish for third, with his redfin measuring 169.5cm.

A total of 49 redfin were measured with the longest award going to Ray Howard with a redfin of 46cm.

The Stawell Angling Club will break for the next three months with the next season set to begin in September.

Club president Ray Howard said he congratulates all winners from this season and looks forward to the next season.
