Low weights - but high numbers of little roach making up the catches. Paul Smith took the ££££ with about 60 little roach for 2lb8oz on punch bread.
2nd & 3rd were venue old hands Pete and Bob. All of the top 3 were pegged down behind the pub and caught on punch.
After last years matches when no one broke the 2lb barrier - it seems as though the tiny roach are putting on a bit of weight.
We raised another £60 today towards the restocking fund.
next match is on the Rochdale Canal at Slattocks on Sunday the 27th
May. Your welcome to join us, for what is slowly becoming a very friendly series of matches.
Thanks to everyone who took part - at long last the weather was kind to
us and the fish were biting. Only a couple of DNWs on a venue that is
slowly improving after a catastrophic pollution event back in 2008.
anyone whos interested in pike fishing, then get down to the old river,
the place is alive with them. I think we'll hold a couple of pike
matches this winter on here.
