RODS AND REELS.
ROUNDTOWN NEWS CUP.
This weeks match was the second round of the sponsored ROUNDTOWN NEWS CHALLENGE CUP.
It was held on the Rio Segura at the Eden Canal Stretch. The weather on the previous
night had been most foul, and all the anglers were anticipating a grim, and wet day.
However, fortune favours the brave, and 22 anglers who turned up, enjoyed a day in
the sun, and with the river fishing the best it has for some weeks.(its a strange old game).
The match as with the previous one, was decided on points with 4 sections of 6 anglers.
(2 no shows meant that several sections only had five anglers, and they were both in
Section 1-6 Pete (i don't swear) Kerr fishing the pole using bread punch

Section 7-12 Harold (H) Clarke fishing the pole using corn for 10.780 kilo's.
Section 13-18 John (AKA Johnny M) Marsh fishing the feeder, and pole using maggot

Picture of most of the Anglers relaxing at the Bar afterwards.
Please be aware that some Anglers just lately have been approached by persons from aCountry far to the East from here, and have asked for the Fish that have been caught.
The Fish were offered up, and the people were very pleasant. BUT be aware if they
are refused, things have happened in the past, which have got nasty.Always if you can,
Fish with a friend, and if you do not use a keepnet, then there are no fish.
Cheers Dave seems your having the same problem with far east countries, as we are
in England. Thanks for your time, and results. Cheers mate, all the best STEVE.
