Fantastic turn out this week considering the weather – all competitors were expecting a hard days fishing. The match got under way with Tony Males on Peg 17 getting off to a good start, catching small Roach and Skimmers. He was quickly followed by club favourite Craig Logan on Peg 4.
As the match progressed most people were catching small Silvers except for June Lowe on Peg 19. June was fishing chopped worm at 6m and catching F1s and Carp. It is was clear that June was running away with it and a bonus fish was going to be needed to frame.
In the final half hour it was incredibly close. Tony Males knew he needed a bonus fish to go with his silvers and made the decision to sit it out on chopped worm – it paid off, he caught two Tench. Ray Agent on Peg 15 also got the all important bonus fish – a bream of 3lb – in the dying minutes.
Massive well done to June on winning the match. June turns up every week with a smile on her face and always seems happy, regardless of the fishing. But she’s probably just happy to be away from her husband John Lowe “The Treble”…
