Winter series up and running

The first match of the winter series gets underway at Shiplate Farm Fisheries.

A COOLER day with light breeze gave the anglers at Shiplate Farm Fishery fair conditions in their first match of the winter series.

After a slow start, the lower and middle pegs soon began to pick up, catching off the far bank on pellet. Several of the anglers hooked plenty of carp, but bumping them on the way in, had quite an effect on the overall results.

Results: Darren Greenwood (WSM AA) 67.10lb; Steve Howell (Lands End) 65.8 lb; Simon Ryall (WSM AA) 45.6 lb; Johnny Paige (WSM AA) 40.6 lb; Jeff Wye (WSM AA) 36.10 lb; Don Suther-land (Veals) 34.0lb; Ron Stark (WSM AA) 32.2lb; Jim Doughty (WSM AA) 20.12lb.

The latest open match was held on the Hawthorns (15 pegs).

Results: Lewys Jones 32.6lb; Dave Cockayne 31.4lb; Titch Williams 24.6lb (section winner); Wayne Timmins 21.8lb (silvers winner); Keith Wilson 15.14lb (section winner).
