Match Report

Match:  LEC Cup 2nd Leg
Venue:  Chichester Canal
Winner:  Mick Greenway
Runner Up:  Keith Hughes
Third:  Cody Hughes


Another sunny day for this match with a strong wind that cleared the leaves and weed that were in the Grosvenor Road stretch of the canal. We fished down towards the depth marker towards Hunston but not as far down as our secretary had been fishing and having good catches. The anglers struggled to catch fish particularly after the boats had gone through. There seemed to be a lot of boat traffic which did not appear to slow down as they came past us. Catches consisted of roach, rudd and the odd small gudgeon.

In first place was Mick Greenway who caught 57 fish weighing 2-14-8. He used bread fished over liquidised bread on the pole or whip to catch mainly small roach.

Second place was taken by Keith Hughes who used pinkies or maggots on the the whip or waggler to catch better sized roach (15 in total) for 2-4-8.
