Match Result 7th June – Beechwood, Kingfisher

This was our first club match 0n the pond this year and all competitors were eagerly awaiting the draw.  It was nice to see some new faces fishing, including junior member Olly Flindall who fished a great match.  Last year the pegs to draw were 2, 6, 13, 14, 20, 32, 37 and 38, so plenty of good pegs to draw.  The Match got off to a great start for Craig Logan on peg 11 – catching a carp first drop in fishing shallow – quickly followed by Matt Gaettto on peg 13.  Matt started off fishing short on pole while priming his 16m line with 6mm pellets.  He caught Carp steadily on this line both on the deck and then shallow, making no mistakes to win the match. Second place went to Craig Logan on peg 11 – Craig fished pole at 13m using pellet both on the deck and shallow and fishing feeder to the island with pin point accuracy.  Third place was Craig Radford on peg 28 – Craig had been looking forward to the match for weeks and now the temperature was above 20 degrees he felt it was safe for him to go out.  He was disappointed with his draw but all that mid week practice paid off and he fished a great match.  Overall the pond fished well with average weights around 30lb
