Match Result 21st June – Robinswood Lake 2

The match this week was on the popular lake 2 at Robinswood.  Peg 18 seems to frame on most matches and with the wind blowing into the peg it looked like the one to draw.   Craig Radford was the lucky angler and I’ve never seen him move so quick to get to a peg – he can certainly shift for a man of his age.  Craig started fishing shallow, catching his biggest fish of the day – a 13lb carp – within minutes. He quickly moved to his margins fishing corn and pellets and caught carp steadily for a cracking weight of 111lb.  Second place went to Barry Dent on Peg 30 – Barry had never fished the venue before and was struggling  for the first 3 hours but finally got Carp feeding on hard pellet short for 51lb.  It was extremely close for 3rd place with 6 anglers having 30lb plus weights.  Third place went to Danny Gaetto on Peg 6.  Danny was turning the air blue with the amount of lost fish from down his margin – good job we don’t have a swear box…  A special mention to junior member Ollie Flindall who caught the biggest fish of the day – an 18lb Carp.  Ollie also absolutely battered Dave Perry and Match Secretary Ade Knighton off the next pegs to his left.
