29th December 2019
This match was again surprisingly well attended considering the recent form of the boatyards – hard is an understatement!
Ian Holmes, on peg 20, caught a 1lb 9oz skimmer on his 3rd cast with the feeder and thought he was on for a good day but NO, this solitary skimmer was enough to win the match as everyone else was scratching for a bite.
Chris Tims was on peg 18 and fished pinkie, managed 17 fish for a grand total of 7oz for second place. He was closely followed by Trev Dodson who had 2 roach from peg 7 at the top of the Gate basin for 4oz and third place. Trevor had to recover one of his fish from between the boards after dropping it through a gap much to the amusement of a certain Mr Burton!
Dave Edge didn’t register a bite but was happy to win the draw for his section and pocket a welcome £20 as some compensation for gruelling day.
Next sweep is back at Toad Hall on 31st December 2019 – See you there……
