This was the first match of the Summer League, it was nice to see many returning faces and a few new ones.
As we arrived at the pond it was clear that the Carp only had one thing on their minds and it was spawning!
The match got under way with Tony Males hooking into a fish straight away from his margin but that was it, it as if the pond was void of fish. As the match progressed Craig Logan on Peg 32 was starting to put a few fish together, fishing pole to the Island.
However, it wasn’t until the last couple of hours of the match when people were starting to catch the odd Carp, Carl Wilson on Peg 14 caught a couple of quick Carp on the feeder, then a switch to pole fishing shallow saw him catch 3 more. Jim Marcer on Peg 36 was starting to catch the odd carp but it was last year’s Summer League champion Ian Bradley who was making a real charge – Ian was fishing pole to the Island and catching big Carp but it wasn’t enough to to catch Club Favourite Craig Logan who took 1st place.
Condolences to Ade Knighton, Mick Burke, Dave Perry, and John Low for blanking…. You wouldn’t think it possible to not catch a single fish at this time of year – better luck next time chaps 😂
Well done June for getting the better of your better half yet again..
