Boatyard 5 – Singles KO 1st Round

Sunday 31-10-21

The old wizard himself – Denny Hammond- wins with 8lb on Halloween

The morning dawned overcast and lighter than usual as the clocks had gone back 1 hour. However the weather forecast was not good and also proved to be remarkably accurate with their timings for once. Sure enough just before 9am the rain began and then the weateher deteriorated steadily with strengthening winds and heavier rain until about 1.15pm when the rain stopped the wind dropped and the SUN came out.

Unfortunately by then everyone was soaked and fed up of battling the elements not to mention boatyard activity which caused 3 out of 4 anglers in one section to have to move from their pegs on the river to new pegs in the Crane basin.

Denny Hammond was the lucky one as he kept his peg (18) on the River section and made the most of it catching quality perch and small skimmers to put 8lb on the scales and taking 1st place this week.

Trevor Dodson was one of the movers who ended up on “peg 6” in the crane basin and ended up with 5lb 15oz for 2nd place with Dave Edgerton in 3rd with 5lb 12oz

All those who stayed the course and weighed in qualified for the Singles Knock Out opponents will be drawn before the next round on 14-11-21.
