Tuesday 17th July 2018
For our fifth and final match of the 2018-2019 Evening Series was held at Crown Meadows, given the performance of last week and the opportunity to finish up slightly earlier to the pub to chat over the Series. Still no rain to be had, so levels low, with clear water and very little pace, we held the match in cooler, overcast conditions.
We’d use the same pegs as last week (from the sty past ‘The Poplars’ downstream), with pegs 3 and 4 being pegged this week, however 4 was not drawn, 6 anglers fished this week.
Either end of the drawn pegs seeing very different bags of fish, not huge weights and certainly not anything like last week, Roach were to be found near the sty end, and to the far end (downstream) the Perch were hiding with Dace to be found in all pegs. The Chub didn’t really make an appearance this week as they did toward the end of the session like last week – and this is a great example of the variety of river fishing!
The results were quite a surprise, to see three anglers all catch 2lb 12oz which saw very little movement on the final tables for the Series. Waggler was of favour again, with Terry Greenslade opting to use the bomb to get to the very depths of what water there was.
Weights at the end of the night as follows
