Fishing News teamed up with MarineCo, the UK supplier of fishing gear from New Zealand company Stormline, to offer prizes to children sending in pictures of themselves doing ‘something fishy’.

We had a great response, and our apologies to all those entries that we haven’t got room to include on this page.

The next generation of FN readers are also clearly very hardworking with several entries showing them tackling a range of tasks ashore and aboard, from oil changes through to net mending, carrying the catch ashore and banding lobsters.

Three prizes were on offer, but given the response, we’ve added some extra prizes, with every picture featured here winning a Fishing News beanie hat – we’re afraid those are only available in adult size, so our young winners will need to trade them with mum or dad for some other treat – plus a child-sized hat from MarineCo.
