2018 Evening Series – Match 1

Tuesday 19th June 2018

We opened the Evening Series with a superb turnout of 11 anglers, more than any single turn out of last seasons Evening Series – so firstly a thank you to all of you who turned up.

An exceptionally fine evening saw us at Nutford Farm in the first field, pegged out between Peg 1 to Peg 14, with 12 pegs marked out for anglers. A draw at 18:00 prompt saw anglers off to their peg to enjoy freshly cleared swims and feature rich from the close seasons inactivity. The water was low and clear, visibility of 18 inches easily in places, and as ever the flow at Nutford was on the slower side of pacey.

General feedback during weigh in was a steady start to proceedings with a tailing off of activity towards sunset, a very slow last hour amongst many. Favoured methods during the evening were waggler and stick float with worm and bread punch attracting those able to lure the shy fish to the banks and of course maggot ever present in the anglers armoury.
