Sea anglers are still waiting for a return to competitive action

Local angler Ian Thompson said: “At the moment no competitions are running round here, all local clubs (Scarborough Rocks and South Cliff Angling Club, Scalby Mills, Cloughton, Whitby and Filey) have cancelled all summer competitions up to September. This could change if lifting of restrictions allows.

“Filey Fishing Festival is cancelled but Scarborough Festival is not, although the format may need to change to be compliant.

“Anglers are allowed to go fishing and many are with reports of codlings from Marine Drive and Filey Brigg.

“Boat anglers local are getting good number of codlings but charter boats aren’t allowed to operate.”
