SPORT: I have very little information on Sunday’s sport other than Warren Langridge had a brilliant rainbow of 14lbs 10oz, (photo to follow), Steve Welsh had another tagged fish winning a tackle voucher and Dave Zalens caught nine from the shore at the Dam on hoppers and black and peacock spiders. The boats fished very well but everyone kept their cards close to their chest as they were practising for the match that was fished today. The rod averages above were for today’s catches.
So to Monday. Today was the first of two heats of the Anglian Airflo 6 man Team competition. We had three teams today with seven more teams fishing on Saturday. (Incidentally with still need two anglers to complete one of the teams on Saturday so if you would like to fish for Stocks Cormorants please call me: 0789 6000 939).
Greys Team Stocks had a dominant performance today with 52 fish to the six of them giving them a rod average of 8.7 to the team. They did it on dries predominantly on daddies and hoppers. They tried to make sure that they had members of the team spread across different areas of the reservoir so that they weren’t fishing over the same fish. The individual match winner was Darren Booth who caught 11 trout in and around Newclose Bay. Good angling guys you got it right.
In second place was Tannahill Raiders who have also qualified for the Northern Final they too caught on dries and a few other methods. They caught a great stamp of fish with nearly every member having a 3lb+ fish in their bag. Graeme Bell Gave a captain’s performance with 9 fish to the boat and John Brown had the best fish in the match with a lovely 7lb blue trout.
In third place were The Stocks Otters. All credit to you guys, you were a new team with three members fishing their first ever competition. They gave the other two teams a run for their money and it was great to see new faces fishing. I hope you all enjoyed it.
