In the grey half light of a surprisingly mild December morning 26 anglers assembled at the Yards looking forward to the promise of a good days fishing. The second round of the Singles KO was also being fought out today for full results click here and at least all competitors (who attended) caught this year! Chris Tims drew peg 8 on the Gate Basin and came out victorious this week with 15lb 10oz of mainly roach and perch. Dave Edgerton was on peg 12 at the top of the Big Basin and had 14lb 12oz for 2nd place and then John Higginson (peg 13) and Alex Watson (peg 7) tied for third with 14lb each. Overall there were 14 double figure weights spread over all basins. Out of a field of 26 that’s pretty consistent fishing and great to see! Had a bit of a problem with the photo this week (No it is nothing to do with the subject!) Mr Burton needs to practise his camera technique – this is not in focus Jon and I looked like complete idiot (don’t even think it) in the other one. Next week it’s the Ida Livard Trophy – Hooray!!!! See you there….
