Sunday 16th April – Fir water
Today was the second of the Christies charity matches and once again saw a brilliant turnout with over 30 anglers taking part. Winner this week was John Saunby on peg 12 with a total weight of 52-13-0 made up of Ide and Skimmers. John had deliberately targeted the sliver fish adopting light tactics and fishing baits such as maggot and worm. Runner up on the day was Martin James Stokes with a weight of 50-14-0 from peg 36 across the other side of the lake. Martin adopted completely different tactics targeting the Carp and F1’s fishing a 6mm pellet and feeding constantly with micro pellets on the far bank at 15m. Not far behind was Dave Bowman with a total weight of 45-13-0 from peg 27 who fished pellet and maggot both under the feet and across to the far bank.
The qualifiers are now over and the final scheduled for the 6th May. Once again a massive thank you to everyone who took part and showed their full support. Here are the top 5 weights:
1, John Saunby – Peg 12 – 52-13-0
2, Martin James Stokes – Peg 36 – 50-14-0
3, Dave Bowman – Peg 27 – 45-13-0
4, Matthew Reece – peg 3 – 43-0-0
5, Jason Maclean – peg 18 – 42-11-0
