Unfortunately the River was again in flood and the match was fished on Tansley Pond. 10 Anglers battled with the elements on Tansley Pond. There was a lot of colour down the Chanel, with the brook which feeds the pond carrying extra water, it was pushing a lot of colour into the water down that end of the pond.

It soon became clear that you needed to be down that end of the pond and it was Steve Allcock who took the honours from Peg 13. Steve  produced a mixed bag, with a weight of 10-5, catching mainly roach,rudd,skimmers and perch to catch well through out the day. In a close second place was David Clark on Peg 14 next to Steve. David also caught well through out the day with another mixed bag of Roach,rudd,skimmers and perch. Third place went to Asa cooper who was not happy at the draw, Asa was disappointed to be at the wrong end of the pond, but he produced a superb net of mainly roach for 7-12. Asa was proud to tell me that he had caught 160 fish in total.

There were plenty of bites to be had on Tansley pond  with the right approach, the best approach on the day was to fish over groundbait with squat or pinkies, breadpunch will also produce a few bites if the pond is clear.
