2nd Points 18th April 2021 Summerhayes

Latest clubmatch held on Sunday was on Longs lake at Summerhayes where 26 anglers fished what was another hard affair for many, mainly due to the recent ongoing cold and frosty starts with prevailing winds generally in the Northerly or Easterly direction. The match was, as usual, run Covid- safe style with 2 sections of 13 anglers vieing for points.  

   Clear winner on the day from permanent peg 21 was Elliot Fay with an all carp catch of 36.925kg. Elliot fished a 14m pole to the island and caught many of the 20+ carp bread-dobbing well off bottom. He also managed a few fish down the margins later in the match mainly using corn over 4mm pellet. Well done Elliot !

   Runner -up was Anthony Edwards from peg 18 with 18.175kg. Anthony's catch comprised 9 carp plus a few silvers fishing a 16m pole to the island. Successful method was 6mm expanders fished over 4/6mm pellet on a size 18hook. Nice one Anthony !

   3rd on the day from peg 29 on the road side was Paul Elworthy with 14.525kg. Paul's catch comprised over 8kg of silvers plus 6 carp. He fished two thirds across with the corn on a size 16 hook over micro pellet. 4 of his carp came over against the island, again on corn. Well done Paul !

   4th spot went to Baz Barrell from peg 15 with 12.950kg. Baz caught 9 carp on paste fished at 13m over micro with a few carp coming late on down the margins on 6mm expander pellet. Well done to Baz who is currently leading in the points list with 19 points !
