The River Tone on the fast stretch was the venue for the 6th match in the Watchet angling winter league series. Now yours truly did not fish this match due to helping out as a volunteer with the Inland Waterways Association at Bridgwater docks. (I will be doing a post on this soon). Hence this match report shall we say will be in a concise form.
|1st||Dave Nash||9lb 6oz||1|
|2nd||Phil Dodd||8lb 10oz||3|
|3rd||Dave Colley||7lb 6oz||2|
|4th||Rob Dodd||4lb 12oz||6|
|5th||Paul Smith||3lb 2oz||5|
|6th||Eric Searle||2lb 14oz||4|
The pegging was as follows, pegs 1-2 was to the left of the car park peg 3 was roughly where the car park is and the pegs 4-7 was around the corner where 7 was the nearest to the 2nd weir.
Top rod Dave Nash had mostly Chub and a few Roach and also had a Trout.
2nd placed Phil had mostly Chub and Roach but apparently was kept company by a washed up moped a little bit further along his peg.
Dave Colley in 3rd spot also had mostly Chub and Roach.
Poor Alan Bland the match secretary did not land a fish on peg 7 he had what is known as the snag swim and his claim to fame in this match is that (in his own words) he had lost during the match 20 hooks. Better luck next time mate.
The next match in the series is on February 8th at Summerhayes on Sellicks Pond.
