7 fished on a river that was 7 feet above normal level and rising slowly at the end. The high river levels made the going very hard with anglers struggling to find slack areas to fish. Winner Geoff Brierley drew a peg with a nice big slack just downstream of Victoria Bridge and managed to catch a barbel and a large chub on feeder fished ambush pellets. Unfortunately, the rest of the field were not so lucky. Tony Quaterman hooked a barbel in the dying minutes of the match which unfortunately found a snag. That left him with a few small roach which were enough to take second place on a tough day.
River conditions permitting, we will be fishing again next week. Draw at 8.00am
Well done Willow's Rick Rogers winning the Bewdley match yesterday. with 29-0-0 Barbel on Pellet Peg 84
After months of low clear river
conditions the rain finally came and so this match was fished on a river that
started about two feet up and rose later. The higher water levels combined with
many leaves coming down the river made the going tough for most of the nine
contestants. Visitor Mark Traves drew the peg above Victoria bridge and adapted
best to the conditions by taking two Barbel on Groundbait feeder with 8mm pellet
Hookbait for a comfortable win.
The next match will be on
Sunday 15th November.
The draw will take place at the Great Western car
park at the earlier time of 8:00 am.
