GEORGE PAGE MEMORIAL MATCH TANSLEY POND 13/9/2015
In the last match on the ponds before the winter river matches it was hoped that Tansley pond would fish a little better than the early spring matches. A good turn out of 14 was present to fish for the George Page Trophy.
On a sunny day it was Mark Gregory who came out on top, sticking to his plan of fishing pellet for the whole match regardless of whether he caught or not paid off. Mark drew Peg 8 on the island and weighed 11lb1oz with a lovely net of carp,tench,crucians and skimmers which were all caught on the pellet.
In second place was David Thornley who weighed 8lb4oz fishing from Peg 14, Dave managed to land a carp weighing 6lb+ and had a few smaller fish to make up his weight.
Third place went to Asa Cooper fishing from Peg 6 Asa weighed 6lb4oz with a nice net of roach all caught on the squatt/pinkie approach.
The pond fished a lot better with the majority having 4lb+ in weight, Unfortunately the Skimmers didn't have a chew, otherwise we could have seen some more double figure weights
