Sport: The bank was a little quiet today but there were catches Andy Hargreaves had 3 fish from Bell Point on a Green Pea, Felicity Appleton took a good walk and caught 4 fish from Newclose bay right at the end near the buoy line. Felicity found a home tied damsel pattern to the trouts liking. Out on the Boats Andy Cooper and Rick Nuttall finished the day with 11 fish to the boat they caught the majority of their fish from Willow Island and found a sinking line with a pink snake to be their best tactic. Also on the boats Steve Bland and James Vann had 13 fish to the boat this also included a tagged fish for Steve winning him a full days fishing and a 9lb rainbow for James, the monster took a UV sunburst blob. The top catches of the day though came from one boat father and son combination Rob and Ronald Palmer landed 23 fish to the boat including a 9lb 8oz Brownie with a tag in its back Winning Rob a full day 5 fish ticket.
