This match was another grueller - so many many thanks to all those who turned up and added another £40 to our re-stocking fund. We've now got £100 from the last two matches - given the quality of the fishing - we cant thank those who have supported us enough.
Last Saturday - 9 of us fished winning weight was 1lb of tiny roach caught on bread punch by Paul Smith. Second was Bob Morris with 15oz of fish on pinkie, Mike Duddy 3rd with 4 tiny fish for 2oz on pinkie.
Salford Council still arent responding to our requests for a lease on this water, depsite the fact that we have secured EA funding for pegs and access improvements.
To make things a little more interesting - we're going to leave the Old River alone for a while and hold our next match on the main River Irwell in the City Centre of Manchester on Sunday the 30th Oct. The city centre is currently fishing very well for roach chub and bream, on the old match length near the Campanile Hotel and we think 30lb will be needed to frame.
We've scouted out 20 pegs - which will go very quickly on a first come first served basis.
And Salford Council - tut tut - your letting your residents down. Seems like were going to have to have a chat with some of our friends in the local press.
