RIVER MATCH RESULT SUNDAY 4TH OCTOBER
On a clear sunny day a good turnout of 15 anglers, the river was in fine form,with lots of small Grayling and big Trout being caught. The river can be some what unpredictable in October mainly because of the on set of autum and the large amount of leaves in the river. But this was not the case and David Taylor produced a fine net of Grayling to take top spot. David fished mainly the stick float, trotting right down the peg to produce a net of 15+ Grayling weighing 8-12. In second place was Malcolm Bent who caught well on the pole feeder method from peg 67 for a weight of 6-7. Third went jointly to Nigel Comley and Roger Stone who both recorded a weight of 6-5. Roger also had a small Barbel weighing 1-5 but was left disappointed after he lost its big brother who Roger thought was 5lb+.
1st David Taylor 8-12 peg73
2nd Malcolm Bent 6-8 peg67
3rd Nigel Comley 6-5 peg75
3rd Roger Stone 6-5 peg77 small barbel 1-5
Out of the 15 anglers everyone caught a few Grayling with most recording 3lb+ weight. There was lots of Trout caught big and large, so if Trout is what you are after you can not fail. Dont forget our next match on sunday 18th October on the river Derwent
