Honiton Sea Angling Club held a well supported family casting fun day and barbecue, writes Mike Spiller.

The purpose of the event was not only to offer members a day with a difference, but also to teach better casting skills and, indeed, how to be safer when enjoying their sea angling sport. There were prizes for accuracy and long distance.

In the category of longest distance, the best cast of the day award went to Ben Bradstock with his cast being one of 252 yards..

The top junior in the longest casting was Davis Wyatt who achieved a distance of 70 yards. The prize for the most accurate cast of the day was won by Ken Sparks.

The club has seen one of its best years in 2018 with the membership doubling to well over 100 members which is something club management are rightly very proud of in this, the clubs 25th anniversary year.

The 2019 season will commence for the club on January 3 with a meeting at the Conservative Club in Honiton. This will act as a ‘signing on’ night for members and gets under way at 8pm.

Honiton Sea Angling Club offers senior and junior events throughout the year with both boat and sea shore fishing. There’s also a dedicated small boat/kayak section and the club offers casting tuition.

The club is also able to offer cheaper parking permits at local beaches such as Branscombe.

You can find out more about the club via their website at www.honitonsac.co.uk or via their Facebook page.
