NAA vs Reading Fishing Club match 29th September 2020

The NAA hosted our annual match against RFC on the Avington stretch of our canal on Tuesday 29th Sept. Seventeen anglers turned out, seven from RFC, ten from NAA. Although NAA were the clear winners on points, the weights were very close, with the average weight being 3½lbs. Weights were made up of mainly small roach with the odd skimmer bream and perch. The big perch didn’t show!

The return leg of the NAA vs RFC match will be held on the Child Beale stretch of the Thames on Tues 13th Oct. Any NAA member interested in fishing it must book-in with the NAA Match Sec (phone no. is in the NAA Permit) by Sunday 11th Oct.

 Note; Many thanks to John Cox and Richard Wiggins for cutting out the swims and car park. Without their help the match could not have gone ahead.
