Our second match of the series was switched to Holtwood with Hucklesbrook temporarily closed, Millers pool remained open for members not in the competition. Thirteen members took part and the top four weights came from Shambles with poor catches on Bascombes. Keith Baker (below – 11lb 10oz) had small roach, rudd, perch and crucians, plus small tench, using single maggot. John Clayton (10lb 8oz) was runner-up with small fish plus two bonus late tench and Jon Bass (8lb 8oz) was third. On Bascombes Pool the top weight was surprisingly low, Dave White won this section with only 3lb 8oz. Our next match is scheduled for Wedgehill (Thurs 20th June), please book-in with Dave Perkins (07598861573) if you would like to fish and the Top Pond will remain open to members.
Fourteen members attended split between Shambles and Bascombes. Recent catches have been good but most competitors struggled to catch much on the day. A few crucians and tench boosted weights dominated by small roach and rudd. Off to a good start in the Series were Dave White (6lb 8oz) from the dam on Bascombes and Keith Baker (5lb 6oz) from Shambles. Weed growth was much less than last May, so the dye looks to be working.
Looking forward to the next match which is on Hucklesbrook (Thurs 06.06.19), please book in through Dave Perkins (07598861573).
