ALDERCAR FISHERY AWAY MATCH RESULT 3/7/2016
16 Members of Matlock Angling Club fished a away match for the first time for a number of years. This match at Aldercar is one of 3 which the club is offering to pay the pegging Fee for this year in a view to get more people fishing club matches home and away.
With the weather set fine and sunny for once everyone expected some big weights on the Acorn Pond, with Carp and Ide making up most of the weights. Chopped Worm/Castor and Pellets would be the main attack, fishing up in the water.
In joint first place was Nigel Ellis & Dave Clark with a weight of 40-7. Nigel caught mainly Ide on the pole but backed his weight up with 5 Carp. Dave's weight was mainly made up of Carp, 31lb of Carp to be precise. Dave was left slightly disappointed after losing up to 10 Carp.
