Calf Heath Match Result 05/06/21

0 Comment

Bright sunshine and a gentle breeze greeted the anglers for the latest instalment at Calf Heath and understandably this meant that the Reservoirs Resident Bream were somewhat reluctant to feed. On a positive note though there were still plenty of small silvers to be had for those that chose to target them.

One such angler was Norman Carpenter who fished the cage feeder in conjunction with maggot and caster. Fishing at 30m on peg 54 Norman got off to a flying start taking plenty of small Skimmers with the odd Roach. It was then a matter of tweaking things when the action slowed to keep a few bites coming, the result a very impressive  28lb 2oz and the  match victory was in the bag.

Second spot went to Dave “the Mechanic” Nicholls who fished several lines on peg 8 again utilising the cage feeder but  in conjunction with maggot and pinkie. A lovely bag of mixed silvers was the outcome and a commendable 19lb 2oz.

Completing the frame was veteran match man and club stalwart John Burns with 16lb 7oz from peg 55, alternating between the method and cage feeder John landed a couple of Bream backed up with some quality Skimmers.
