Match Report

Match:  Moss Cup 3rd Leg
Venue:  Coultershaw
Winner:  Vince Herringshaw
Runner Up:  Mick Greenway
Third:  Steve Simmonds


The third leg of Moss Cup was fished on the Rother at Coultershaw on yet another warm and sunny evening. The river was low but there was a reasonable flow and no colour. As usual the match was a walk off with a number of options on where to fish. Keith Hughes fished in the weir pool and lost a barbel of about 4lb ledgering meat. Mick Greenway and Ray Huskisson both hooked bigger fish that they lost, which could have been barbel. As yet no barbel has been landed in a match.

Vince Herringshaw was fishing the swim where the stream comes into the main river. He used a small lollipop float on the pole to catch 9-11-0 of dace, roach and chublets on maggot.

Mick Greenway was fishing the fourth swim in the fenced off riffle section to catch 6-11-0 on maggot trotting a stick float.
