The Match this week was on our own waters – Roughs Pond – and it was nice to see some new faces. Our Club waters are the only waters that we match fish that can be classed as a real mixed fishery and it makes for a nice change from the Carp puddles.
The match got under way and Mick Burke on Peg 8 got off to a great start catching a number of Skimmers and a couple of Carp. Adam Logan started the match fishing shallow at 16m and was catching the odd Carp and F1s. Going into the second hour Club Favourite Craig Logan on Peg 13 made a switch to fish his margin and was rewarded with a couple of Carp. Jim Mercer on Peg 3 and Dave West on Peg 15 both decided to fish for silvers and both were catching Roach and Skimmers regularly. Going into the last hour it was incredible close with nobody looking to be running away with it. Dieter Woodings on Peg 14 started to catch a few Carp and small Tench and Carl Haslam on Peg 18 caught some big Bream. Ralph Marshall on Peg 10 caught a few carp from his margin swim.
Well done to Ade Knighton on catching his first Carp in 3 weeks 😃
