The match this week was rearranged to the Stanton Canal due to a last minute cancellation by Brailsford Fishery. Turn out for the match was good considering the late change in venue, again with some new and returning faces giving the match a go. Unfortunately the match fished incredibly hard with only three anglers catching double figures. It soon became apparent that the Bream were shoaled up on pegs one and two, with both anglers catching them from the off. First place went to Jonathon Leivers on Peg 2, catching Bream over groundbait. Second place was Ade Knighton on Peg 1. Ade caught Bream feeding pellets and kept rotating hook baits – this is the second week running Ade has framed and just goes to prove anything is possible, giving hope to the rest of us. Well done Ade 😉 Third place went to Adam Logan on peg 10 – Adam had a nice day fishing chopped worm, fishing to the lily pads catching big Tench and Ide.
