The first two days have been hectic in our zones at Colwyn Bay.
Day one we had the individual winner from Portugal in our zone, with a thornback, 9 dogs and 15 whiting, also a Brazilian with 43 whiting so we were kept busy measuring and signing.
Day two we were still at Colwyn Bay but to the left of the old pier instead of the right it was still pretty busy, loads of whiting and a few dogs early on and then with dusk coinciding with the start of the flood it got a bit silly. some bigger whiting and lots more dogs, only one little ray where we were, but still nice to see them showing there.

Final day yesterday at Colwyn Bay again, on an even bigger tide, Wales started in first place, but failed to maintain the lead as the dog fish were harder to find in the shallow water at low. The whiting were still showing in numbers with a few in our section going 30 to 35 cms. and one of 38.
Portugal took the gold, England silver, and Spain bronze, with Wales in 4th place.
Ruud van Noord took individual gold for Netherlands

Yes I`m worn out, we`ve been walking about 7 miles a day and kneeling and bending down to measure fish every 20 metres but we`ve met some fantastic people from all over the world and no matter what pressure they`re under they mostly stay friendly and thank us for what we are doing.
It has been a brilliant experience, but if I never see a pin whiting again I won`t miss them.
The closing ceremony and awards dinner last night made it all worth while, everybody thanking us for our efforts, and some really shocked to find out that we were unpaid volunteers.
