Calf Heath Match Result 21/08/21

0 Comment

Twenty Anglers turned out at a rainy Calf Heath but spirits were certainly not dampened as the “Silvers” duly obliged. On the day it was like winding the clock back as the point produced the top three weights. Winner on the day and certainly benefiting from a mid week trip to the Reservoir was Nev Bailey Snr. He was more than happy with his draw of peg 55 and even more so as it turned out to be one of the two golden pegs. But as they say in fishing you still have to make it count and Nev made no mistake catching from the off with the occasional rude interruption from the resident Carp. Fishing the method at 45m resulted in him bringing an impressive 59lb 3oz to the scales.

Second spot went to Jordan Hall off the next peg 56, the Middy backed man also opted for the method feeder  but this time fishing two lines. In between his tussles with  some of the reservoirs larger Carp Jordan put together some nice runs of Bream and skimmers to total a commendable 31lb 15oz.

Completing the frame was Kevin Tipton from peg 54,fishing the cage feeder mainly at 20m Kev also had to contend with Carp issues and also foul hooked fish. However the Sensas Rod was rewarded for his patience with a pleasing 22lb of Skimmers.
