Friday's heavy rain caused weights to be adversely affected during yesterday's pole-only club match held at Little Yeo. With 21 anglers taking part, the match was split into 3 equal sections, two on Bobslake and one on Gaggs.

Section A      

 

The winner was Bruce Hunt from permanent peg 9 with a weight of 23.750kg. Bruce, who fished the paste at 14m, fed micro pellet at regular intervals to keep the carp coming really quickly. He caught 31 small carp in total and caught most of them during the first half of the match. Runner up was Eric Priest from peg 8 with 13.420kg. After a slow start, Eric caught small carp using meat, but as bites slowed again halfway through the match, a switch to maggot produced a further 6 carp plus a few silvers. Close behind in third spot was Paul Elworthy from peg 5 with a weight of 12.500kg. With the margins producing very little, Paul fished the paste at 11m and caught virtually all of his fish in the first half of the match. 

Section B      

 

Deserved winner was Paul Sagar from peg 18 with 20kg which included 15 carp ( biggest 7lb ). Paul fished banded pellet wrapped in paste at 11m. He managed only 2 carp in the margins which were both caught on corn. Runner up was Ali Robinson from peg 15 with 19.310kg. Ali caught 15 carp using a variety of baits, mainly paste, but also meat and hard pellet. Half a dozen skimmers plus a decent perch completed his net. In third spot was Mike Blake from peg 16 with 12kg. Mike caught all his fish, including 8 carp, down the margins mainly using single or double corn on a size 14 hook fished over micro pellet.

Section C      

 

This section in Gaggs proved to be the toughest on the day. The winning weight was caught by Gary Butler from peg 3 with 2.180kg. Gary caught a total of 46 fish, which included 2 crucians, a skimmer and a 12oz roach, all caught on single maggot. Runner up was Anthony Edwards from peg 7 with a weight of 1.710kg. Anthony fished a long pole to the island and caught one skimmer and many small roach on pinkie to a size 22 hook. In third spot came John Hill from peg 1 with 1.360kg. John caught most of his fish using worm.

The next club points match is on Aug 27th at Upper Tamar ( Cornish bank ).
