Providing Sea Angling recreation and competition to club members and represent the Force in all open, PSUK, regional and national championships both Shore and Boat angling.
The PSUK Regional shore angling event was organised by Glos police at Blue Anchor beach in November 2017. Avon and Somerset won both team and individual events. The team won by a clear 70 points and Andy Madsen beat all comers to win the individual award.
Team members are Roger Tolley, Clive Dunster, Paul Hocking and Andy Madsen.
The PSUK national championships were organised by Norfolk Police and held in North Norfolk in November 2017. Avon and Somerset acquitted themselves well with Gareth Davies gaining joint 9th place and the force team a very well deserved 10th. The fishing was hectic in some areas and slower in others, Gareth caught 60 fish in his zone and only managed 4th place in the night event, the day event was slower and more skilful fishing which helped the team to be in the top ten in the uk.
1. Clive Dunster 2016 Regional shore champion.
2. Alan Scholes and Clive 2016 Regional shore team winners.
3. Andy Madsen 2nd place 2016 Regional shore.
