The third round of the Over 60s match took place on Avington D Wed 19th. A good even match with big fish being the decider on the day. Richard Wiggins had some nice Perch from the far bank cover and topped them up with skimmers and roach. Dave Smith had 1 nice Perch and also had small perch and skimmers. The full run down was:

Richard Wiggins 6-11-0

Dave Smith 5-6-0

Tony Franklin 4-11-0

The second round of the CC match was switched to the Enborne Canal because of the delicate state of our lakes. The South bank of the Enborne canal (Up) is a pleasure to fish away from walkers and bikes.  Dave Smith Drew favoured peg 14 and caught 3 large Perch and a bag of small Perch and Roach. Ade Ager drew end peg 9 on the lily pads and found 1 nice Perch with a good bag of bits, he lost a very big Perch which may have given him the win on the day. John Cox was on the other end of the match length on peg 27 and also had a good day. The result was:

Dave Smith 6-12-0

Ade Ager 4-8-0

John Cox 4-4-0

The third match of the Twilight series was on Tue 11th on Alders, and was very disappointing in the rain. Only 1 Bream was caught and only 4 anglers weighed in.  This leaves Karl Godfrey on top of the table with one match to go on Willows. The result was:

Dave Chandler 4-4-8

Karl Godfrey 0-5-8

Matt Tarrant 0-2-8

The club championship fish off took place last Sunday 9 Jul on Enborne Canal.  The morning match on the Down stretchwas won by Brian Cripps, followed by Steve Thame.  The afternoon match on the upstream south bank was won by Richard Wiggins with Brian Cripps second.  So Brian Cripps won the fish off and the £100 prize.  He drew down in the trees in the morning and drew the end peg in the afternoon and fished a very good match.  The results were:

The next leg of the Over 60s series took place on Alders 5 Jul 17. The Bream did not want to play on another hot sunny day. Steve Thame found two from peg 10 and Dave Smith had one off peg 21, with Merv Burrows getting a smaller one from peg 17.   Henry Sadler found a Rudd! The result was:

Steve Thame 5-4-0
