Coloured water made fishing tough for entrants in the Scottish Federation of Sea Anglers (SFSA) match on Riverside Drive in Dundee.

Best baits were peeler crab tipped with fish or just straight peeler and the organisers used a continental pay out style, aimed at sharing prizes better.

Kirkcaldy-based Mike Horn, president of the SFSA, won Zone 1 with 471 points and second was Callum Culbert, a member of the Scottish youth team, with 459 points. He is from Aberdeen.

Meanwhile, Calum Strang, who captains the Scotland junior team, had a great day with what was described as a “fantastic” card of fish, beating a number of senior anglers.

The competition also acted as a practice session for the youngsters and Hollie Stoker from Dumfries collected a new rod from Stewart Falconer, a member of the East Fife Shore Angling Club, for winning the Picture of the Month competition run on the Sea Fishing Scotland social media site to encourage more junior anglers into the sport.

And Harry Keeny plus Edinburgh-based Eryk Janik collected their SFSA tie and badge for being new caps in the Scotland Junior Sea Angling Team.
