2020 Evening Series – Match 2

Tuesday 23rd June 2020

A great turn out on a very warm evening, seeing more new members bankside and the return of David and Liam, having moved up in recent years from our Junior membership to Adult.

There was more colour in the water due to some rain earlier in the week, and fish were topping in all swims – the potential was there but as ever, Nutford can be a challenging place to fish at times. A few anglers took to pole and the rest of the field using waggler to work through their swim, the usual baits in action (single and double maggot) with some choosing to use ground bait to try and attract fish into their peg.

The first third of the pegs in field 1 clearly providing the results, despite there being favour among anglers for the shallower swims towards the top of field 1, the deeper swims continue to provide good fishing on a consistent basis.

We finished slightly earlier to make good use of the light whilst running around for weighing in, congratulations to Alex for his second win of the series, a super result. Also congratulations to Jamie, first time fishing a match with us and made peg 1 work like a charm – great work!. Taking third spot on the evening was our very own Craig Whelan,
well done Craig, just missing out on second spot by a couple of ounces, we bet you wished you’d landed that first Perch now?!
