RODS and REELS.
This weeks match was the 9th round of the Winter Championship.
A series of 11 matches with the best 8 to count.
The match was held on the aptley named 8 foot drain.
Due to the fact that although it is only 6 meters wide the depth is
anywhere between 8 – 10 feet.
It does seem strange fishing the top 3 sections of your pole to hand and catching fish.
The drain fished well on the day with only a couple of dry nets.
Big fish are scattered throughout the stretch, with Stu Taylor weighing
in 6+ kilo´s with 2 fish.
One being 4.300 kilo´s in old money 91/2 lbs.
Top rods on the day.
1st Terry ( Swing e´m ) Screen fishing the pole using maggot with 7.980 kilos.
2nd Lenny ( Excultural Attache ) Bolton same method with 7.00kilos.
3rd Bill ( The Master ) Reade same method with 6.62 kilos.
Accumulative points to date
1st Paul Baxter with 58 points
2nd Dave Hoare with 59 points
3rd Bill Reade with 69 points.
2 matches to go and still anybody´s trophy.

Anglers Together continues to grow as a club with many friendships
formed over the past 3 years. Many members fish together regularly
and say they are pleased that they have taken up a sport that they
once followed in their youth. We have the occasional organized outings
but the main aim is to introduce members to find fishing companions and to
assist in finding the fishing venues.
The joining fee is 10 euros for new members and 5 euros for renewing members.
