A turnout of 18 anglers was unbelievable, given the current form at the boatyards, and yet again the yards continued to be a fish desert for most, with only pockets of small fish being caught from one area in the big basin.
Dave Dearman fished peg 17 between the boats in front of the offices and caught fairly steadily once they arrived, but they were tiny and he had 59 fish for 1lb 9oz but this was easily enough to win.
Harry Barron made a return to form 2 pegs away on peg 19 at the end of the road he caught small roach on the waggler to weigh in 14oz and take 2nd place.
John Burton sat on peg 18, like a rose between 2 thorns, and managed to break his extensive run of blanks this week, catching FIVE fish for 4oz and 3rd place. Well deserved if only as reward for such dogged perseverance over the past few weeks!!!
Only 3 other anglers caught fish and there seems no clue as to why the fish have deserted the boatyard this year.

Next weeks match will be running as normal if you can stand 5 hrs for “A bite”(or no bites at all!) come along………………………..see you there?
If you just can’t stand the thought of yet another blank – there is an alternative…….(no not the ultimate solution….) you could go to Martham Pits, where I believe there will be a match organised if there is enough interest. Contact Dave A on his usual numbers by Friday.
