It was another good turnout for the second Club day at Stretton Lakes today with 22 Anglers in attendance. A bit of a cool one weather wise, with blustery winds and a good hard downpour to end the day during the weigh in.
Whilst some were fishing for a bite, Pete Wray on his first match with the club found the end peg on the north bank to be the hot spot. Fishing maggot and pellet on the pole up to the island he finished with an impressive 51 lb & 13 oz to take first place and the Club Cup.
Mike Moseley came second with 30 lb 7 oz by a 1 oz margin ahead of 3rd place Ray Morland.
Mike fished the pellet feeder to the island with an 8mm banded pellet and also double white maggot off a red zig set 12 inches off the bottom. Ray dobbed bread on the pole at 13 metres against the island for his 30 lb & 6 oz using just 3/4’s of a slice all day.
Sections wins for Phil Price, Alan Joplin, Ron Needham and Ray Torrington.
