Stevie Gray landed top spot in the first competition held at Harpsdale Fishery Park, a new venture near Halkirk.

The two-day Summer Open went "extremely well", according to the owners of the venue, despite high winds being slightly against the anglers.

There were 25 entries, with just short of 100 fish caught throughout the day.

Summer Open results: 1 Stevie Gray; 2 Robert Imlach; 3 Mark Macdonald.

First fish caught: Alan MacLeod. Last fish caught: Ally Miller.

Heaviest fish: Ally Miller. Best turned out / best-looking angler: Dennis Miller.

The competition took place on Saturday, July 17, with the Sunday being the first day open to the public.

Harpsdale Fishery Park's Alan Sutherland said: "We were delighted to hold our first competition and opening day on July 17 and 18 respectively.

"Since advertising on social media and general word of mouth we have received some excellent feedback and support from locals and visitors to the county. Hopefully this is something we can build on and look at developing over the months ahead."

Harpsdale Fishery Park can be found on Facebook.
