The Bait Tech Cup 2020 fished on the 27-06-2020

The Watchet Red team where drawn away to Bath Spartans. The venue which was chosen by the Bath team was Lower Ponds White Wicket Farm near Peasedown St John. The is a quaint little place tucked away in a little valley a place of isolation and solitude.. A proper home venue. A fishery with characteristics so far removed from your normal run of the mill modern day commercial. It is fed by a small dribbling brook at the car park end and made attractive by tall trees furnishing both sides of this charmed filled rustic lake. This is a place that could have been plucked from the poems of Wordsworth and Keats and gently dropped in to this green laden hollow. A place that had been nurtured and given tender loving care by the enthusiastic angling fraternity of the Bath Spartans gang for the last five years, and a mighty fine job they have done indeed.

This is the happy go lucky Bath Spartans team
Now I know that I am not David Bailey but, any way the guy to left is the eventual overall winner. The angler in the middle is our very own John Barker, and the gentleman to his left is none other than fellow team mate Jamie Cook.
This is my opponent and name sake Pete from Bath spartans in peg two.
