MATLOCK ANGLING CLUB AWAY MATCH LONGFORD FISHERY 7TH AUGUST
On a warm sunny day 18 matlock angling club members fished at longford fishery in the second away match out of 3 to be held this year. With no knowledge of the fishery no one knew what to expect apart from lots of bites and lots of Carp.
It soon became clear that it wouldn't be a Carp fest!There lots of bites to be had from small roach, rudd and golden rudd but the Carp were a little allusive! What ever bait was used the float was never still.
Malcolm Bent won the match, Struggling for the first couple of hours like everyone, Malc noticed a lot of Carp cruising on the surface, So a quick switch to floating pellet fished at 16 metre saw malc land 8 Carp for a weight of 34-11.
|Winner Malcolm Bent|
Second place was taken by Mark Wain who weighed 21-14, Mark caught a few chub and Carp. Struggling early on Mark decided to feed Hemp to feed off the smaller fish and it soon reaped the benefits catching Chub to 2lb.
|Second place Mark Wain|
Third place went to Asa cooper who had a mixed net for a weight of 18-14. Asa caught a few late Carp to boost his weight.
|Asa Cooper with pond to himself, but still not happy with the draw!|
Section winners were David Greatorex 17lb and Mark Gregory 15-15
