Dennis Houghton romps Christmas Tydd Gote Angling Club match on 20 foot at Chain Bridge, March
Tydd Gote Angling Club travelled to the 20 Foot at Chain Bridge, March for their Christmas match where they were met with a drain bank high and steadily pushing through.
Dennis Houghton drew the peg he didn’t want, hot peg 3 and on the day golden peg as well, but still romped away with the spoils after a commanding performance fishing maggot and pinkie on a top two and top three to take 9lb 2oz of mainly roach.
Ian Benton was runner-up from peg 7 and also fished close in for some slightly better quality roach and perch on maggot for a level 4lb, just edging Andrew Kilby’s 3lb 15oz of small fish from peg 2.
Pete Emery took fourth place with 3lb 5oz on what was generally a hard day’s fishing.
Wednesday Open at Main Road: 1 Pete Emery 18lb 8oz; 2 John Taylor 13lb 6oz; 3 Don Green 7lb 10oz.
