Stuart Haynes of Plumbase landed the top weight but a vital mental health charity was the real winner at the 10th Pump House annual fishing event.
Around 100 anglers made the most of the (now traditional) glorious weather at Woodland View Fisheries in Droitwich Spa for an event held in memory of Luke Beard, a former member of the Pump House sales team.
Money raised on the day goes to the Maytree Suicide Respite Centre, which provides the only service of its kind in the UK. Luke's father, David, again took part in the event and thanked everyone for their support.
