NAC Cley 22/9/14 Sea Angling Report

The second match of the Norfolk Angling Club season saw another excellent turnout with 25 anglers competing including 3 juniors, the match stretch was to the left of the carpark at Cley past the fishing boats. Conditions for bass looked very favorable and the low number pegs would be where the majority of the fish would come from.

First fish of the night went to Russell Taylor with a nice schoolie bass at 37cm on his first cast, also early to catch was Richard Chapman making a welcome return to the league after several weeks of hard graft, rumours drifted along the match stretch that  he had a 47cm bass along with a 36cm one and was clearly leading the field.

Then everyone could hear shouts of joy and excitement as Adam Molloy one of the clubs junior anglers managed to find a 45cm bass to go with his 28cm flounder, then again with a 42cm bass and lastly topping off the perfect match and a specimen at this venue he managed a 28cm sole giving him the top spot honours and his first podium with 4 fish for 4lb 7 1/3oz. Second place went to Richard Chapman who added to his two bass with dab for a total of 3 fish for 3lb 7oz. Third place went to Russell Taylor who added a flounder and a dab to his earlier bass giving him 3 fish for 1lb 14 1/3oz.

Sadly the higher numbers didnt fair so well and with many only catching undersize or nothing at all and some losing a few sets of gear.22 fish in total were caught and returned with 11 out of the 25 anglers carding, 7 bass , 9 flounders , 4 dabs and a sole all caught and released.
