The 2016 League after 10 Matches
Steve Randle broke his own record, catching the highest weight by a Red Horses Angler at the Willows, last week.
176lb 6oz of carp were caught by Steve at 9 meters fishing and feeding sweetcorn.
He fished at approximately 3/4 depth with strong rigs and elastic to tame the large fish, found at this venue.
Steve moves to the top of the “100 Club” but with form like this and 5 more matches booked on this water this season, we may soon be talking about the “200 Club”.
This weeks match is on the Raymar at Hanchurch Fisheries, a venue that normally produces lots of bites coming from heavily stocked small carp & barbel. The weather forecast is for warm and settled conditions, so it should be a good day.
Congratulations to both Andy Willacy & John Smalman who between them have won three of our opening six matches; in addition to featuring top three at the others.
It is nice to see some of our newer members featuring strongly in the match results and laying down a challenge to the rest of us by their performance.
Another win for Derek Taylor keeps him firmly at the top of the leader board for the season. Whilst second place is taken by Tony Reason, who caught steadily throughout the day, despite breaking two sections of his pole.
Anthony Adams took third, surprising himself at the weigh in with over 25lb of fish, 10lb more than he had estimated, (or was it just a ploy to undermine Derek Taylor – who it seems is vulnerable to such mind games)
Warm and Sunny on the Raymar canal pool for the third match of the Season. True to expectation the end pegs near the reeds showed the best Catches with two of the top three Results coming from this section. Kev Gear … Continue reading
