Dry but a gusting wind today making pole fishing a bit challenging, but perfect for those that opted to fish feeder rods.!!
On Bruce’s Acre, everyone hoped to draw the culvert pegs, and they didn’t disappoint.!
Pete Armstrong made the most of drawing peg 13 by winning his section, the lake and Overall match with an impressive 80lbs 8oz.
Symon Willan was worthy of a mention finishing second overall in the match from peg 14 with 68lb 10oz of carp caught on the tip rod.
Section 2 was won by Steve Royle with a net of small skimmers for 27lb 8oz, with James Woodrow winning section 3 with 22lbs.
On Queensberry Water it was the feeder rods that helped produce the big weights, Dave Wardman winning section 1 with 52lb 8oz… Mainly Carp.
Section 2 produced some great weights also on the feeder rods, Ian Whitson winning the section with a superb 62lb 12oz net of nice carp, with Martin Greene pushing him all the way weighing in 57lb 12oz of carp also on the tip rod.
A similar story in section 3 with Broom regular Rosen Arsov winning the section with 38lbs of carp…
Carp seemed to dominate today on the feeder rods with bait presentation on the pole very difficult to tempt any great numbers of quality silverfish.
On Wallace Lake it was a familiar story, David Joseph drew hot end peg 32, and he fished well to put 56lb 10oz on the scales, all Carp with two skimmers on tip rod, winning the section and Lake.
Section 2 was a real grueller for all, usually a good area for silvers but today they were having none of it… But James Dornom did just enough to win with 10lbs 10oz, a net of small ide caught on pole.
Section 3 again was dominated by carp, with Craig Duncan coming out on top on end peg 47 with 49lb 8oz, although he had around 20lbs of silvers to help him along caught on pole, with the carp caught on the tip rod.
Worthy of mention was Gerry Blythe who had a great late run of carp on the feeder to weigh 40lbs 4oz.
Some great nets of fish recorded today, mainly carp but impressive for the time of year.
Many thanks to all who supported the Fishery and SFCA match today… Nice to see a big match and very well attended… Hope everyone enjoyed the fishery and superb fishing…
