Match Report

Match:  Parfrement Cup
Venue:  Petworth Park
Winner:  Mick Greenway
Runner Up:  Keith Hughes
Third:  John Williams


The weather started out grey with early drizzle but this turned to sunshine by the end of the match. The wind was light with occasional stronger gusts but not detrimental to long pole fishing and was blowing towards the roadside pegs. This helped to provide the catches of bream seen in the previous match. We had 12 anglers turn up including Micky Bullock who provided his usual entertainment including catching the bankside vegetation on numerous occasions. 10pegs were put in along the roadside bank with the 2 behind the first island, which had given good catches in the previous match

Mick Greenway , fishing three pegs to the left of the concrete slab on the road side, won the match with 32-0-8 of bream caught on the long pole. The catch consisted of 11 bream and were mainly caught on worm with the odd fish on pellet and dead maggot.

Fishing two pegs to the right of the concrete slab was Keith Hughes who again used the long pole and pellet to catch 6 bream for 19-6-4.

In third place fishing behind the island on the peg, he had a good catch on in the previous match, was John Williams with 18-1-12. This consisted of 1 tench and 1 crucian along with skimmers and bits.

Overall the catches were slightly worse than the previous match with only 4 anglers having double figure weights.
