Venue †††† : Felmersham, Gt Ouse

Match††††† : Championship #13

 

Write Up by Allan Bayman:

We has fairly low turn out for Felmersham with 12 booked on for most of the week and then a couple of list minute entries to take it to 14, which is our worst attended match of the year.

 

Those who did make the effort found the river low and clear and fish not really in a feeding mood but some good fish did show.

 

Dan used his venue knowledge to find a good spot where he caught well from the offer and took a clear win. Bonus fish proved crucial for the runners-up with Paul Bangs taking second with some help from a 2lb 8oz perch to add to his mainly roach net, ahead of Rich McCorry with 5lb 1oz and then Alan Gardner had 4lb 6oz thanks to a stonking 3lb perch and new personal best for Alan.

 

With the river clear fishing was hard and the upstream wind was gusty at time and when it went flat calm bites seemed to stop.

 

Dave McGrath lost a good fish that weeded him and these was some pike action in the clear water. I stupidly didnít check my net very well when packing it and found two large holes which many of my smaller fished used to make good their escape, not that it would have made much difference.

 

Our next match is our Christmas match so please book on ASAP to avoid disappointment

Footnote: Nick Darke had a pleasure session on the stretch the day before and reported this bag of silvers on the VAC forum. His did say that the lack of colour compared to just a week or so ago significantly impacted on the confidence of the fish.
