Venue Changes 6th August & 1st October

Two changes to the match calendar have been made for 6th August & 1st October this year. The new venue for both dates will be  OTHERTON FISHERY.

Our match secretary Alan Duke has been to check it out and spent a day fishing  there. Returning with a positive report, we believe this venue will be an improvement on the original venue booked; where catches have not been good for some time.

Willows Rules (Confirmed)

Last Sundays match was one of the best we’ve had this season; with a good spread of weights, most being well over 40lb.

Congratulations to Neville Duke, who pipped Steve Randle by a single ounce, to the win with 94lb 4oz.

It just goes to show that sometimes restrictive rules can focus your approach to the match.

On the subject of which; we now have the definitive rules in writing for matches fished at this venue.
