Chesil Beach Flatfish Open 2014
109 anglers took part in this annual event held on Chesil on Sunday 13 April.
The entrants enjoyed glorious weather with many anglers going home with an suntan which made up for the lack of flat fish. Fishing was hard due to the water colour and an influx of spider crabs.
