A bit rough for fishing would be an understatement, although it remained mainly dry for the duration of the match, the 45 mph gusts didn’t help, with at least 5 anglers breaking pole sections.
The heavy rain over the previous days had upped the levels in the lakes, unsettling the fish with very little feeding activity going on, bites were slow and every fish was a prison today..!
On the Square Brian Docherty drew peg 7, one of only two with the wind coming over his back, and he won comfortably catching carp, tench, ide and skimmers on pole, for 39lb 2oz, giving him a section win and overall individual match win.
Rosen Arsov finished 2nd with a net of small carp for 28lb 12oz., caught on feeder.
Stuart Dalgleish was a well earned 3rd in section with 24lb 3oz, a mix of small carp and silvers.
On Queensberry Water David McAuley won his section with 30lbs 12oz, catching ide and skimmers on pole.
Dave Wardman was 2nd with a net of mixed species for 25lb 15oz, with Scott Bond very close behind on 25lb 4oz for 3rd in section.
Wallace Lake fished very hard compared to recent match weights, with the wind reaking havoc for those pole fishing, but James Woodrow made the most of his end peg advantage to win the section with a net of silvers for 28lbs.
Gary Black was a very close 2nd from end peg 45, only 8oz behind James, with 27lb 8oz.
Ian Whitson took 3rd place on a tough day with 24lbs.
