FUR & FEATHER 2016 MATCH RESULT
The weather was set fair for the 2016 Christmas match, a week later than normal in the hope that the River would not be in flood. 30 anglers took part and the majority enjoyed a full english breakfast at the Red Lion Matlock Green before the draw. Lots of excitement and anticipation before the draw, who would draw the Hot pegs and would the River fish well. The Pegs were well spread from Oaker to Artist corner and 9 pegs at Matlock Bath so everyone had a reasonable Peg, with a good chance of catching some Fish.
It soon became clear after the first hour of the match that the River was going to fish hard and it would be a case of swapping and changing to sneak out a few more Grayling. With the River being very clear it was a day for the stick float and it soon became clear that a peg with some flow would produce a few more bites and fish.
This years winner was Asa Cooper fishing from Peg 49 at artist corner he fished a great match to land 16 Grayling mainly on the stick, Asa fished mainly worn on the hook to weigh 8lb of Grayling. Asa won a Hamper and some money for his efforts.
