Reg Brayne Trophy R. Stort Backstream 2nd January 2022

Our first match of the new year was fished on a backwater of the River Stort owned by the Bishops Stortford club. The backwater runs just behind our lakes at Taylor’s and has residential canal boats moored on the far bank for most of its length. On the day the backwater had reasonable flow, but was quite clear. Most people caught small roach on a variety of baits, plus there was a very good chub and a decent perch weighed in. First on the day was Jo Smith who included a 4lbs 13oz chub in her 5lbs 1oz winning weight, Bob Fox was 2nd with 3lbs 2ozs, and Willy Ramthor was 3rd with 1lbs 8ozs.
