THORBURN FROZEN OUT WHILE MATHERS MARCHES ON TO TOP SPOT WITHOUT THE AID OF A MASTER ANGLER
With the 50% sale over at Dene’s shop, freezing temperatures and master anglers missing due to altitude training in South Africa, it was left to 10 hardy/foolish members to meet at the venues gate 6pm sharp. After a quick vote it was decided to fish and not tank drive, we set off to the water, with 5 to the right 4 to the left and Paul Thorburn in Salthouse.
All found it frustrating evening getting through the smaller fish, with lots undersized fish turning up, but everyone managed to card least 2 fish, with a total of 49 fish between the team.
Biggest flat of the night went to Barry Iseton with a 30cm dab, making him £10 richer and 5 points to the good, biggest round was shared between John Catchpole and Dave Mathers with a 31cm whiting giving them 2 1/2 points and £5 each.
3rd place on the night with a 7 fish bag went to Barry Iseton 2nd went to the ever consistent Peter Symonds with another 7 fish haul pipping Barry by 1 2/3oz, But the star of the evening was Dave Mathers with 10 fish for a total of 3lb 4 1/3oz.
