9 - 14 - 0


Well this match was scheduled for the canal, but the Match Secretary had one of his spies out there a few days earlier and not a lot was happening so he decided to move it to the middle pond at Hurston. In the event not much happened there either with most of us struggling for a bite let alone a fish.
Keith drew the tree at the far end of the pond which was almost certainly a banker for a days fishing and this proved to be the case. with a mixed bag of Carp, Bream, Skimmers and Roach and catching fairly regularly through the match a net of 20lb 3oz was easily enough to win.
Glen was about half way along and finally decided to have a go along the far bank on the tip after trying a float line for the first few hours. He had two Carp for 9lb 14oz and second place.
The rest of us failed to trouble the scorers!!

Keith and Glen were the only ones to catch from the Middle Pond
