Club championship match 18th June 2017

On the hottest day of the year so far Jake Heaver made a stunning return to the NAA match scene.  Fishing his first match for some years he drew peg 54 in open water which suited his style of pellet waggler fishing. He worked very hard for his exceptional weight and a deserved victory.   All the other 16 anglers fished on the bottom with either feeder, bomb or pole.   Dave Smith Drew next to the winner on peg 53 and could only find 2 Carp.   Dave Chandler on peg 47 also found 2 Carp and the other weight were made up of single fish. Both Richard Wiggins and Ade Ager fought out a Rudd battle with both catching two fish, at least they secured good CC points on a vey frustrating day. The weights were:  

Jake Heaver 71-14-0

Dave Smith 9-7-0

Dave Chandler 6-2-0
