Finally, for every winner, there has to be a loser and my good friends Liam Conroy and Stewart Connolly have kept up their quite amazing performances in this competition. Decked out in all their fishing regalia, our 2 little soldiers toiled against the elements for 2 long days. Sadly, nothing was to come of it and these brave little boys head home tired and weary with a heavy hearts (I could cry myself whilst writing this piece, such is the emotion of the occasion). In summary the total fish caught by our 2 little brave boys was a big fat zero. Better luck next year lads.

For poor Liam and Stewart, I would look away now. For everyone else, I have pictures of the winners over the weekend below.
