Match Report

Match:  Pole only 1st Leg
Venue:  Cart
Winner:  Paul Ward
Runner Up:  John Williams
Third:  Steve Hanson


There was a good turnout of 10 anglers for the 1st leg of the Pole only match on Cart. It was good to see Steve Hanson and Steve Speller (Spelling) back from their Sundays at Back Arun. The depth of water on Cart was up to its normal level thanks to the work of Nelson and his helpers in sorting the leak on the dam wall. Again for the draw for matches on Stemps and Cart we used the list of the most successful pegs drawn up by Steve Simmonds. The catches consisted mainly of roach with the odd skimmer plus some small carp, which shows that they are breeding in Cart

In first place, fishing in peg 22 was Paul Ward who caught 3-5-4 of roach along with the odd small carp and skimmer. Paul caught fish on bread punch and pellet and found that better sized fish were caught on pellet although he had to wait longer for a bite.

John Williams stayed to the end of the match finishing in second place with 3-0-0 of roach and odd skimmer caught on maggot and pellet from peg 27.

In third place was Steve Hanson, fishing peg 24, with 2-15-8 of roach and skimmers.
