Harrell Wins Wye Festival

The popular three-day Shakespeare sponsored Hereford Angling Festival on the River Wye once again attracted a sell-out entry and a big waiting list. Despite the low and clear river conditions there were some excellent weights recorded and an exciting end to the final day that saw river ace Dave Harrell crowned the champion.

Dave picked up £1,200 over the three days and becomes the first angler to win the competition twice after first winning in 2006.
