Burnham beach anglers bemoan 'worst-ever competition' as fish stay away

More than 60 anglers lined the water's edge at Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday to compete in a beach competition - but the fish stayed away and made it one of the worst afternoons on record.

Just six flounders were caught by the 66 anglers during the five hour event, which organiser Dave Stephens said was "very poor."

"It was the worst we've seen and was probably caused by a number of factors, including the weather," he added.

The event, organised by Weston Outcasts, was held in bright, but cold conditions.

The group's next Burnham beach fishing event will be held on January 8th.
