Denny Hammond and Roger Farmer 1st and 2nd place again this week

After a cool start the day soon developed into an unseasonably warm and very sunny day with light southwest winds. There was a field of 19 members this week which is not a bad turnout, although not huge considering the weather forecast. The fish did a bit of a disappearing act this week compared to last week but you still needed 9lb plus to get in the frame. Denny Hammond made it 2 on the trot this week from his peg just up the left side of the Crane Basin where he caught steadily rotating lines to keep the fish coming and ending up with 11lb 1oz. Roger Farmer also made 2nd place for 2 weeks running from his peg near the top right side of the Crane Basin where he caught 10lb 9oz. Then switch basins to the Gate Basin, where Trev Dodson (“Mr Pickup” himself) had 9lb 7oz from the top left side. Trev was also regretting losing a big bream during the match which would have possibly given him 1st Place (another one that got away) – never mind Trev there’s always next week. Elsewhere, Mr Agass had a perch of 1lb 14oz amongst his 6lb 3oz bag from the Crane –¬† half a lobworm on a size 6 again Dave? So what news of the “superstar” (AKA Mark H)? Well back to reality this week, even after drawing last weeks winning peg, he could only manage¬† 5lb (I know the feeling well). Finally John Hehir wants the peg on the Gate near the toilets removed (or filled in) next week as he is fed up of drawing it and not catching!!!!! I a, off to Ipswich next week but my spies will be reporting the events so a report will be “created” Or that may end up being “creative” we will see……..Hope you all catch and the weather is kind…………..See you in 2 weeks
