Match Report:

Seven anglers turned out to fish today's match on what turned out to be a lovely day considering it is nearly Mid October. The Match was fished on the Island Pond. It was pegged 2 anglers miss a peg to keep it on the one side. Prior to the match, there was a lot of debate as to whether Peg 29 should be in. Fishing was 11 am till 4 pm.

After the first hour, Tommy Lauriston had taken 2 small carp and 3 perch from his right margin. The reeds were moving all day long with fish within them. When Ronnie made his first bank walk he reported that Tommy's estimated weight was up there with the others. Dougie Campbell at that time didn't have a bite.

As the match went on it was Frank Smith that became the angler to watch as he managed to get the skimmers going. Dougie the tip was still on his pole.

With 2 hours to go the big splash and Dougie was on his tip rod and it wasn't long before there was splashing on the Pond surface as Dougie started netting Skimmers and Carp. Dougie fished his way to an easy Victory weighing 7Lbs-14ozs. FrankSmith took second place with 4Lbs-6ozs and Geoff Lowe 3rd Place with 2Lbs-15ozs. Bryan was just out the frame by a few ounces. Tommy made the error of trying to get the fish to come out the reeds and failed miserably.

Well done to the Framers. The next match will be Wednesday on the Top pond. there is a thread already up for booking in.

Tommy Lauriston.

What a beautiful day to be out fishing, pity the fish did not want to play.

Oh well, roll on Wednesday.
