Hi all, the Weds BSDAS club fished its weekly match on our private stretch of the river. It was a good turnout considering the amount of rain. I put in all the best pegs and spaced us out to give everyone a decent chance of a few fish. I drew peg 7 not too bad a peg and decided I would concentrate on roach today so down the centre of the river and a line to the barge. It was breadcrumb and punch with the odd look on maggots. Steve next to me was all out for perch. The day went as I thought it might - a lot of small roach and dace with the odd rudd. I did get 4 decent roach to weigh in with 2lbs 9oz
1st place was Peter Green with one very good perch and other silvers for 5lbs 14oz, 2nd Barry Cornel with 4lbs 11oz mainly perch, 3rd Steve Foster with 2lbs 14oz mainly perch and 4th David Jones with 2lbs 13oz mixed silvers. Well done to all it made a pleasant change from carp bashing
PS if you want a few pike there were plenty active including one that took a liking to Steve's plummet before the match start.
