This was the second week running at Hurston match lake and the anglers were hopeful that it would be more successful than the previous week, as there had been a whole week of above average temperatures. However again we had a Saturday night frost and this again took the edge off the fishing with the weights lower than the previous match. 9 anglers turned up for the match and 4 were pegged on the stream side with the other 5 pegged on the opposite bank
The signs were good as Mick Greenway on the non-stream bank hooked but lost a carp on his first drop in. However this was a false hope as the anglers on this bank struggled to catch a fish with only Ray Huskisson hooking and losing a carp. On the stream side the anglers were slightly more successful but still struggled catching only small roach
In first place, Vince Herringshaw, fishing on the stream side managed to catch a carp on his last cast and this with just over a pound of small fish gave him a winning weight of 7-6-0
John Williams was not tempted by the barmaid’s apron this week and caught 0-11-8 of small roach to take second place. He was fishing close in on the stream side using pinkies but lost 2 carp
Third place was a tie between the Hanson brothers, Steve and John who both caught 0-9-4 of small roach.
