Calf Heath Match Result 19/03/22

0 Comment

Early morning frosts, a very brisk North Easterly wind and high pressure were the less than favourable conditions that met the Anglers for the latest Calf Heath encounter, and that  certainly was reflected in the weights.

Winner on the day with a hard earned 8lb 12oz from peg 52 was Nev Bailey snr. Fishing several lines at long range he managed to pick off 2 quality Bream and a Skimmer, all 3 fell to method feeder tactics.

Second spot went to Paul Bucknall from peg 66 in the bay, going no where with a couple of minutes to go he managed to snare a 4lb plus Bream, slipping the net under it just as the hooter for the all out went. That fish plus 2 skimmers and a perch gave him a pleasing 7lb 11oz .Paul alternated between the cage feeder and the method throughout the match.

Completing the frame also from the bay (peg 65) was Tony Jeffery, his 6lb 12oz  catch consisted of several small Skimmers and 3 of the newly stocked Tench. Again Tony alternated between cage and method feeder.

Section winners….

Dave Nicholls          5lb 4oz   (peg 56)

John Burns             3lb 14oz   (peg 63)

Dennis Seymour     5lb 11`oz  (peg 80)
