Another big attendance this week saw us using both sides of the Canal – Pegs 1 to 29.
Because the matches are always so close all eyes were on the draw to see who would get the golden peg and the lucky angler with the chance to with the extra winnings was Ian Shaw. Ian was over the moon and knew he had a big chance with his Peg 21.
The match got underway with Jim Marcer on Peg 13 catching an early Tench followed by a second soon after, which he unfortunately lost in the lilies. As the match progressed news on the bank was Ian Shaw was catching and was admitting to a nice Barble and a Carp over 6lb. Club favorite Craig Logan on Peg 11 was putting a few fish together but was cursing losing a 6lb Tench at the net. Everyone looked to be catching but in the end it would come down to who could catch the bonus fish to get them in the frame.
At the weigh in Craig Logan was winning until they got to Mick Burke on Peg 19 who was the last to weigh in. Mick nearly didn’t fish the match due to feeling unwell but he was glad he did after having a fantastic day, catching a real mixed bag and a bonus Bream to top it off – well done Mick!
