Another close match on Roughs pond with lots of little battles and plenty of banter. Peg 1 won the last match on the venue and it looked like it was the peg to draw again with plenty of carp showing.
Adam Logan on peg 14 had a great start to the match – catching shallow fishing up to the floating island and on the deck. He looked to be the man to beat but unfortunately a couple of lost fish seemed to slow down his catch rate.
Ian Shaw on peg 10 was also cursing lost fish. Ian was fishing ground bait down his margin with either corn or worm on the hook and also pellet at 12m, catching Carp down his margin and a nice Bream at 12m.
Ian Bradley on peg 5 had been struggling for bites in until the last hour when he finally started to catch Carp fishing shallow feeding pellets.
Craig Logan on peg 2 caught over 30 skimmers fishing pellet at 14m but was unable to catch any bonus fish to add to his catch.
Ade knighton had drawn peg 22 and couldn’t wait to start calling time one minute early! Ade was sat between June Lowe and John Lowe AKA “The Treble”. June definitely had them both worried, catching good sized Roach and Perch and the odd carp on worm before The Treble did what he does best and harpooned a carp of over 5lb, taking both the bragging rights and a section win.
Jonathon Leivers drew fancied peg 1, and caught mainly Carp, fishing pellets at 12m and 14m.
As Ade called time “on time” it was clear who was in the top 4 but it was going down to the weigh in to find out what order and who would get a section win.
