MATCH RESULT 7/2/2016 RIVER IN FLOOD (TANSLEY POND)
After heavy rain on Saturday it was inevitable that the River would be in flood yet again! So Tansley Pond was the destination for todays monthly match. With the pond heavily coloured from the previous days rain it was expected to fish well, but sadly this wasn't the case. Twelve anglers fished the match on a clear sunny day.
Malcolm Bent came out on top with a weight of 3-15 from Peg 16. Always a good Peg when the Brook which feeds the pond is high and Malc took full advantage with a mixed bag of Roach and Perch to edge out Steve Alcock. Steve fishing from Peg 13 recorded a weight of 3-8, again a mixed bag of mainly Roach and Perch. Third spot went to Nigel Ellis with a weight of 2-9 from Peg 10, Nigel also had a mixed bag of mainly Roach and Perch.
Not the best match but everyone had a few bites and small fish were the order of the day. All the top weights came from down the channel where most the colour was.
