Match Report

Match:  Daniels Cup
Venue:  Coultershaw
Winner:  Steve Hanson
Runner Up:  Steve Speller
Third:  MIke Kitchener


The eight anglers who turned up for the match were met with a hard frost and the river higher than normal but still fishable using float gear. It was anticipated that it would be difficult and these is how it turned out. Ten pegs were put in place with 8 in the first field past the stile and 2 in the fenced off area. In the match several good sized trout were caught but unfortunately these did not count and in the end only 4  fish were weighed in.

Steve Hanson was fishing in the fenced off area and caught a 2-10-0 chub float fishing maggots to easily win the match.
