Boatyard 7- Charity Match 18th November 2018

Dave Edgerton Wins this week with 15lb 9oz

Beautiful autumn sunshine welcomed the 25 anglers who came to compete in the Charity Match this Sunday. With the bright conditions and a blustery east wind the pre-match talk was of a hard(ish) day on the cards but that did not (thankfully) happen. This week it was the river pegs at the very top of the Big Basin near the slip way that produced the winning weight with Dave Edgerton putting 15lb 9oz on the scales for 1st place. On the 1st jetty in the Big Basin sat a certain  Mr Charlwood who had a busy day with around 300 fish for 14lb 13oz and 2nd place. Then Andy Dicken on the 3rd jetty and Jon Burton, who was next to the winner near the slipway, both had 13lb 3oz for joint 3rd. The Big Basin continues to be the place to draw although you needed  8lb+ to win any section this week and the pegs on the river all fished well. Maybe they will be in again next week!!!  I am informed by Colin that £137 was raised for the charity. Just a normal club match next week  – perhaps I will draw somewhere on the big basin…. with a peg full of fish ….( I can dream can’t I ) …….. See you there……
