The Xmas match was fished on Sunday 19th December with 23 anglers attending what was to be a fairly good day for December. Do bear in mind that the river is normally in the fields or frozen by now so to fish the match at all is a minor miracle and to have so much support was awesome.
Firstly a massive thanks must go to Ian for sorting the prizes, and also to those members who made donations.. Browns of Haddenham also donated 2 vouchers to the cause, a really nice touch from Derran, as they were very busy on the Saturday with Martin Bowler making a guest appearance in their shop.
So here are the results (down to 11th place:)
- 1st Dave Wollington 5lb 4oz peg 48 mainly roach and dace. well done Dave
- 2nd Geoff Bond 4lb 9oz peg 29 chub (lost a couple more) unlucky Geoff
- 3rd Dave Lyne 4lb 3oz peg 55 perch (lost a couple more)
- 4th Nick Newitt 3lb 11oz peg 46 roach and perch (plus some good pike, one of which nearly ate his wedding tackle!)
- 5th Joey Gleeb 3lb 9oz peg 37a, sorrry I,m not sure what Joey caught. Good lad though
- 6th Graham Thompson 3lb 6oz peg 36 chub (lost a couple more) could have won Graham!!
- 7th Tim Eele 3lb 1oz peg 43 not sure what Tim had but a good effort.
- 8th Martin Chown 2lb 12oz mainly roach and dace (very boiling swim though) the boy did well!
- 9th Graham Ault 2lb 10oz peg 37 not sure what Graham caught but he did well as a late call up.
- 10th Kieth Wollingtan 2lb 7oz peg 41 again, not sure what Keith had but a good result from 41
- 11th Robert Morris one of our JUNIOR ANGLERS, a great effort by Rob. 1lb 12 oz roach and dace peg 54. Great to see Rob there and thanks to his Dad for bringing him, always welcome and hope to see him on the bank more often.
So there you have it – get on the river now and catch whilst it is still in it’s banks!
Tight lines and see you all soon
