Sunday 7th November 2021
A better morning than last week greeted the 22 hopefuls, a fairly stiff westerly but no rain in the forecast this week. An otter in gate basin was a sight to see though he soon cleared off as the anglers tackled up.
Talk this week was around the frosts midweek and whether they’d hamper sport, with all the basins pretty much full, gaps were at a premium. With 10 pegs in crane, 4, with the otter in gate, and 9 in the big basin, pretty much everyone wanted a big basin draw.
And so it proved with the top 3 places coming from 3 of the 4 jetty’s in big basin. Crane showed a remarkable dip in form, after providing at least one framer every week so far this winter, there were blanks this week and a top weight in the basin if 3-5 for Spud Sadler. Gate wasn’t much better with a few more fish but all on the small side.
Well done to Dave Gipson winning with 12-5 from peg 18, second was Jon Burton with 9-13 from peg 15 and Trev Dodson third with 8-13 from peg 16, and we’ll done everybody as the club raised £105 for charity.
Next Sunday is the second round of the singles, hope to see you there.
