CAWDOR POND MATCH 9 14/06/2015


The last league match was fished this sunday on cawdor pond. Going into the final match it was Asa Cooper who was the favourite to take top spot, knowing that another section win would see him home and no one would be able to catch him. The chasing pack including Mark Wain, Paul Ashley,Andy Fox,Steve Allcock and David Fowler were all hoping that Asa Cooper would have a poor draw and slip up. After the draw was made and Asa Cooper had drawn peg 1 it was obvious to most that he would take some stopping. Yet again Peg 20 was the peg that everyone wanted and it was Steve Allcock who had the honour but unfortunately Steve lost 6 carp in the trees and was left shaking his head.
The weigh in

In the end it was Asa Cooper who took the match and the league with a weight of 16lb7oz , Asa fishing from Peg 1 chose to ignore the Carp and just fish for roach and skimmers. Asa caught all skimmers and roach taken on pellet and squatt for a much deserved victory. With 5 back to back section wins it saw Asa Cooper take the league by 1 clear point from Paul Ashley who also recorded 4 section wins himself. 

In second place was Malcolm Bent from peg 6 with a weight of 12lb15.5oz, Malc fished for carp and landed 2 with one fish touching the 7lb mark. Not a easy peg to fish and land fish and Malc found to his cost losing a 3 carp.
7 lb Carp

Third place went to Mark Wain who only fished half the match due to work comitments, Drawing peg 15 Mark weighed 11lb3oz, Arriving at about 11.30am Mark went all out for Carp and landed 3 and losing 3 in the lilies. Not a bad achievment considering he gave everyone a head start.
