Match:  Charles Tankard 2nd Leg

Winner:  Mike Kitchener
18 - 11 - 0
Runner Up:  Keith Hughes
16 - 0 - 8
Third:  Matt Foster
13 - 9 - 4


Eight anglers turned up for the second leg of the Charles Tankard at Cart. The evening was dry again although there was a cold wind blowing which meant those on the non Stemps bank had a cold evening. Peg 16, which is normally home to lots of the carp in Cart was left out as a tree has now completely filled the right of the peg. This meant the carp moved out of this area to the top part of the lake and in particular Peg 31. The two evening matches at Stemps and Cart have again proved successful with an average weight of 10 pound per angler, although the very large first place weight on Stemps rather distorted the figures.

In first place fishing the method feeder, with maggot as bait was Mike Kitchener on Peg 19. He caught 9 carp weighing 18 – 11 – 0.

Keith Hughes was on Peg 31, which was the Golden Peg and fished paste on the pole to catch 8 carp weighing 16 – 0 – 8. He would have won the match but lost a number of carp to the bushes on the left of the swim.
