Willis Worm Festival 2017

30 Anglers took part in this years Willis Worm Festival meaning an angler every other peg, leading up to the Festival there hadn't been a drop of rain for weeks, and then sure enough the heavens opened on the Saturday. So much so that the start time was put back from 11am to 2pm. Fishing till 8pm made for great fishing especially on the match Lake.

The overall winner being the total weight over the 2 days made for an exciting last day as and it wasn't until all the weights were tallied did we learn who the victor was.

For the second year in a row it was Andy Rowbottom who took the trophy home by 1 fish as it turned out, with Mathew Daws running him close on his debut here at Holgan Farm.
