Boatyard New Years Eve – Sunday 31st December 2017

It’s that man AGAIN! Trev Dodson makes it 3 wins out of 3 over Christmas


A distinctly damp start welcomed the 14 fisherman who came out for a the last match of 2017. The rain stopped just before the 10am start and although it was a “bit breezy” we had a relatively pleasant day.  Trevor Dodson stuck his hand in the draw bag and drew another “flyer” at the right hand end of the Gate Basin where he ended up with 8lb 15oz and 1st place (again!). This gives Trev 3 out of 3 over the festive period and there are rumours of him retiring on the proceeds!!! In second spot was Roger Farmer with 8lb 7oz from the 1st peg up the left side of the Gate and in equal 3rd place were Mark Charlwood and John Higginson with 7lb 12oz each. The four framing pegs were all next to each other  at the bottom of the gate but in general the fish were spread out with goose green giving 7lb 8oz and the Big Basin produce three 6lb plus weights off the 3 pegs that were in there. Mark Harmer lost a big skimmer/bream up on peg 1 at the top right of the Gate, which, if he had landed it, may have given him the match as he had several other smaller samples. Never mind Mark there is always next week, which is the 3rd round of the Singles KO (click to see details) …….See you there….
