RODS, AND REELS.
This weeks match was the final in the 1 to 1 Car Hire series.
It as been a series of 4 matches with all scores counting.
The match was held on the Eden canal stretch of the Rio Segura.
The river had fined down, and looked good, with the flow as normal.
However looks can be decieving . The current leader, and second
place angler both blanked leaving the overall winner to come from
down the field. Although a few pegs fished reasonable well the
majority of anglers struggled for a few fish. Tony Price although
he caught some good fish, he also paid the price. Halfway through
the match he latched onto one of the resident animals that lurk
up, and down the stretch. After playing it into clear water the
fish decided to head for the weeds again, remembering is Mr Crabtree
books he gave it some side strain,but to no avail, not only losing
the fish but also to have a rod of two halves. I believe his
Mr crabtree book is in the bin.
Top rods on this patchy day.

This is a picture of a fish not often caught, while i was fishing
at Beniojfar a couple of weeks ago. It is proudly held by "Master
of the pegs" Pete Hampshire. It is approximately a pound, and a half.
Cheers Dave, how much coin did you pick up for second overall.
Glad to see the Eels are immigrating to Spain as well, you can keep them
mate. Thanks for this report, here from you soon mate STEVE.
As for myself i have no fishing this weekend, so gawd knows what i'am
going to do. Bought my fishing licence today, gone up to £27.00.
Looks like its going to shoot up every year, until no one can afford it.
Typical Country, you enjoy it, the Government will tax it.
