An interesting range of readers’ photographs were sent to Fishing News in 2018 for inclusion in this informal feature.
The high quality of images received made selecting the six shortlisted photographs shown on this page particularly challenging for the Fishing News team.
By common consensus, the overall winner was ‘Waiting for the tide’, taken by Clifford Craven, who will receive a cheque for £100.
Thanks to all readers who sent in their photographs, and please keep them coming for 2019.
