MATLOCK ANGLING CLUB MATCH RESULT 3/1/2016
Once again over night rain made the river unfishable and yet again the match had to be fished on Tansley Pond. Only 8 Dedicated souls turned out for the first club match of the year to fish in heavy rain all day. Things can only improve weather wise and we should soon be back on the River Derwent.
With Tansley Pond fishing well the week before everyone wanted to draw down the chanel where once again the flooded brook was pushing a lot of colour into the water. It was Nigel Ellis who drew Peg 16 closest to the brook. Nigel was delighted with the draw and couldn't get to his peg quick enough. He wasn't disappointed and claimed top spot with a weight of 10-4 for a comfortable victory. Nigels weight consisted of mainly small roach,perch,skimmers and rudd taken on pinkie fished over groundbait.
The rest of the pond didn't fish to well and bite were hard to come by. Second place went to K Masling who was also drawn down the chanel on Peg 11 producing a weight of 3-11. In third place was David Fowler who weighed 2-2 from Peg 2.
