Weekend League 17/9/2016

Several club members headed to Burton Bradstock for this weekend league match. Unfortunately some of our regulars were either on holiday, or fishing a boat match the following day and were unable to attend.

Those who took part caught a mixture of congers, garfish, pouting and plaice. Isn’t it strange that Dick Hooper went down there a few hours early to pleasure fish and managed to catch 4 plaice before the competition started. Yet in the competition he couldn’t catch one.

The best fish of the day fell to the rod of Andy Shopland, a magnificent plaice of 3lb 7oz. John Lintern was again the winner closely followed by Andy Shopland and Dick Hooper.

The main amusement on the day was provided by Vicky Izzard who when returning a fish slipped on the shingle and the next wave went right over the top of her. I would have liked to have seen that!

Next match October 15th at Blue Anchor fishing 16.30 to 20.30.
