Tydd Gote anglers fish in Mick's memory
Tydd Gote Angling Club hosted the Mick Asker Memorial match at Main Road on Sunday, where more than 30 anglers turned up to pay their respects.
Mick was a regular angler at the club and on the open match scene abut sadly lost his battle with cancer earlier this year and this match was a chance for his family and friends to remember him. The match was involved ‘random pairs' drawn on the day with Kim Asker presenting the trophy to the winning pair, Jez Rockett and Dave Williams.
The pair had a combined total of 14lb 10oz, largely made up of Jez's tench and bream weight of 10lb 14oz that also gave him the individual title.
There was a tie for second, with Andy Lawrence and Dennis Houghton and Pete Emery and Sammy McSpadden level on 13lb 9oz. Andy Lawrence also took runners-up spot individually with two tench and some silvers for 9lb 9oz with Pete Emery third on 7lb and John Bates fourth with 6lb 14oz.
Wednesday Open: 1 Bob Bates 11lb 5oz; 2 Andy Toogood 9lb 3oz; 3 Pete Emery 8lb 9oz.
