Jim Maidens Memorial Fishing Competition

The annual Jim Maidens memorial beach fishing competition took place on Sunday evening in Saltburn by the Sea in Cleveland.
The competition is held each year to mark the death of the Saltburn plumber and keen fisherman Jim Maidens, who died in 1998 when he was killed after being swept overboard from his boat ‘Corina’ close to the beach at Saltburn.

Around 70 fishermen and women attended the event which helps to rise money for the RNLI and the Great North Air Ambulance

Here’s a few pictures from yesterday…

All images were taken on a Leica M9 with a Summicron 50mm f2 lens and a Fui X Pro 1 with a 18mm (28mm equivalent) f2 lens. Photographs were edited in Lightroom. No editing techniques were used that couldn’t be carried out in a traditional darkroom.
