Garry's ray of sunshine; FISHING.
PRICKLY but harmless undulate rays are never far from England's south coast, if you know where to fish, but they are a rare offshore sight elsewhere around the UK.
Garry Doyley, 35, from Portland, Dorset, (pictured) caught a whopping 19lb 8oz undulate and a 4lb 12oz black bream while anchored over Kidney Bank, east of Weymouth, with Colin Penny at the helm of Flamer III.
That is one of the biggest undulates since the British record was set at 21lb 4oz 8dms in 1987. An exceptional score of 91.6 percentage points wins a Shakespeare SALT boat rod paired with a Pflueger President fixed-spool reel.
A similar prize goes to Jason Nott, 32, of Aberdare, South Wales, who hooked his first undulate - a 16-pounder - caught on a run to Kidney Bank with skipper Penny.
ENTRIES: Send your letters to People Sport and Shakespeare Angling Competition, PO Box 822, Christchurch, Dorset BH23 5YJ.

A photo of you with the fish is welcome but, please, not creased plain paper computer prints. All fish must be caught in UK waters from December 1-31. Winners found by scoring against official UK records, excluding coarse fish of 1lb or less and sea fish in mini-lists.
