How End Fisheries
Ahead of the Winter League, which starts on Sunday, an Open was held on Yasi’s at the weekend. Tough conditions meant competitors were either in the fish or not, as they seemed shoaled up in certain pegs.
Top honours went to Phil Stone again who managed 57lb 15oz of carp from peg 14 on pellet and corn, Mark Wells bagged second with a 36lb 9oz bag of mainly silvers, while Nick Rowe took an excellent third off peg 11 with 21lb 8oz, just ouncing out Darryl Anderson in the process. The Winter Pairs League starts this Sunday and there is still space for one more team. Anyone interested should ring Stone on 07753 743802.
Results: 1, Phil Stone, 57lb 15oz; 2, Mark Wells, 36lb 9oz; 3, Nick Rowe, 21lb 8oz; 4, Darryl Anderson, 21lb 1oz; 5, Pete Nash, 14lb 7oz.
Queens Works AC
Queens Works AC fished their penultimate Summer League match at How End Fisheries on Sunday.
The first hard frost of autumn saw fish tightly shoaled, but all 18 anglers caught. Richard Newman drew peg 18 on Dani’s lake and fished waggler and maggot to the island for carp plus a few chub and skimmers for a winning weight of 42lb 2oz 8dr.
On Dani’s, Steve Cooper fished the pole from peg 15 at 14 metres and caught well late on to secure second place with 26lb 12oz.
Pete Henegan was third with 20lb 14oz from peg nine on Yasi’s.
Section winners were Ray Gaines with 13lb 3oz 8dr, Kev Thornley with 20lb 2oz and Malcolm Harley with 10lb 8oz. The wooden spoon went to Vic Jackson who, despite knowing the venue well and practicing there midweek, could only manage 4lb 2oz. With one match remaining, Newman tops the table with 185 points, with Cooper on 177 points.
