Bait Factory Photo Competition Winners

Anglers' Net


I know everyone who judges a competition says something similar, but it really was hard to pick a winner in our latest photo competition. There were some incredibly good entries under the theme of 'The Spirit Of Angling'.

There were two winners for this competition and one was chosen by the number of votes cast. The winner was Gemma Hadley, with the photo below, captioned “Dad, I Really Do Not Wanna Hold Him, He Keeps Looking At Me! Quick Throw Him Back In!”

Well done, Gemma. A £150 bait package from the Bait Factory is your prize.

The judge's pick, and recipient of another £150 Bait Factory prize is Neil Stanley with his "Big isn't always beautiful..." entry. We thought it encapsulated the spirit of angling pretty well, as did many others.

Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. I'm off fishing for a few days now, but will feature some of your photos on Anglers' Net next week, as they deserve to be seen. Thanks also to the Bait Factory for supplying the prizes. Please be sure to check out their website at
