2018 Evening Series – Match 2

Tuesday 26th June 2018

We saw 7 anglers return for round 2 of our Evening Series, the continued warm weather certainly causing some concern of being able to catch at all by those who turned up. Very little visible flow, a reducing river level and an expectation that the fish just wouldn’t be feeding at all certainly was the talk before the draw.

Well the theory was proven right – it was a tough night for all. Having pegged out of the top half of the 1st field from Peg 13 (as marked) upwards, there was plenty of variation between pegs to mix thing up a little. The Perch were to be found if you came equipped with worm and some patience. Various sizes were to be had with Liam and Stewart both catching reasonably sized specimens during the 3 hours of fishing, reasonable being circa 1lb.

The far bank was providing catches for all who ventured there, with the risk of getting caught up in either the overhang if your cast wasn’t accurate or snagging on some of the reeds and lilies on the return to recast. Small Dace, Roach and Perch to be picked off if you could get through the Minnows!
