CAC Christmas Match (02.12.18) Avon at Upper Winkton Results:
The Avon was carrying some extra water and a tinge of colour. It was dry, mild and overcast, the stretch had been fishing well all week. So everything looked spot-on for a good days sport and most competitors caught fish all day, averaging over 6lb. Alan Snook won the match weighing-in 9lb 10oz of mainly roach to 10oz, closely followed by John Perry with a similar mixed catch of roach and dace for 9lb 2oz. Steve Withers was third with 7lb 0oz taking mainly smaller fish but including a fine 1lb 13oz roach. Members thanked Dave Perkins for organising the prizes, pegging swims, doing the draw, weighing-in and providing some beers and mincepies. It’s an unfortunate tradition that the organiser never wins the Xmas Match! Also special thanks to Steve Griffiths the local Keeper/Bailiff for his excellent advice on fishing swims few of us had seen before, plus Steve Withers for forwarding pictures of the event.
