An odd match - two weights from the 2 end pegs - (breadpunch) bites hard to come by for anyone after 11am and virtually nothing caught after noon.
We were expecting a better result than recent matches on the Rochie - but the bright sunshine and spawning bream put paid to the double figure weights we think are possible from this stretch of canal.
Our next matches will be as follows
10th June - Duchy Lagoons Salford 24th June - Kingfisher Lake (max 12 pegs) 8th July - Blundells (TBC) 22nd July - Sainsburys Pond,Blackely (TBC) max 14 pegs 5th August - Old River, Irlam 19th August - RIVER IRWELL (either agecroft or city centre - we'll make a decision once the river season reopens and we can see which stretch has best form)
