Forty-eight anglers cast their lines across two waters last weekend in an annual fishing competition.

The Bungay Cherry Tree Angling Club hosted the 'Teams of Four Fishing Festival' at Ellingham Hall Lake and Earsham Layby Lake on June 10-11.

Twelve teams from East Anglia entered, with two team members fishing one of the waters before alternating to the other the following day.

Saturday was a hard match all around with both lakes underperforming last year. Jim Barrowman and Ian Bailey leading the individual battle on each lake. 

Sunday was a much better day, with the Ellingham Lake producing good fish all around.

'Local lads' Lee Lightfoot and Chunky Pollard topped each lake on the Sunday.

The late Willow Tree fluff caused problems over both days on Layby lake, and Sunday was more reminiscent of snow on a winter's day rather than summer.

In the end the victorious team was Barrowboys who stormed to victory, beating Marsh Trail by only 4 points.

The individual winner was England International Mark Pollard, who has supported the tournament for several years now. 

Cherry Tree Angling Club chairman Glenn Shiplee said: "The club runs the tournament to promote the club and its venues to a wider catchment and were pleased to get comments made of the picturesque venues and quality of fish being caught. 

"It is one of the clubs aims to promote the sport for young and old anglers.

"It also tries to enhance and work with wildlife such as putting up owl and bat boxes around out venues.

A general raffle was also held by the fishermen before the main event.
