Warm and sunny day to open the match season, but the carp slow to show up.
Derek Taylor took 1st position on the canal pool at Izaak Walton Fishery fishing maggot on the pole. Persisting through the small fish he was able to pickup the carp and build a weight of 60lb 8oz.
Kev Gear had a good last couple of hours after switching from the far bank to take 44lb 3oz on sweetcorn fished close in.
Congratulations to john Hill on 3rd place with 43lb fishing his first match as a member of RHAC
