Calf Heath match result (2/10/21)

0 Comment

Twenty Anglers braved a very damp Calf Heath and with the reservoir also being topped up a tough match was expected. However as it turned out the good sport continued with plenty of Bream, Skimmers, Roach and even a few Tench being caught.

Taking top spot on the day was Nev Bailey snr with a nice mixed bag from peg 76 on the tins. Fishing into the wind and rain it will come as no surprise that Nev opted for the method feeder fished at distance. Catching steady from quite early on and with only the odd interruption from Carp, he put together a pleasing 34lb 15oz.

Second spot went to fellow match organiser Bob “Plastic” Harris and there certainly wasn’t anything  synthetic about his 29lb 11oz of Bream and Skimmers. Method feeder again doing the damage fished at 45 yards from peg 56.

Completing the frame from peg 54 was Dave Shaw with a mainly Bream catch for 27lb 3oz.
