Kilby makes Tydd Gote Angling Club tench catching habit on North Level at Main Road to pip John Bates
Andrew Kilby has made a habit of catching the tench on the North Level at Main Road this season and showed his big fish skills yet again at the latest Tydd Gote Angling Club Sunday match.
Drawn on end peg and golden peg 6 it was almost inevitable he would find one or two tench from there.
As it was he managed eight fish up to almost 7lb, the first coming after a couple of hours to his worm and caster feed and then steadily to the end of the match for an excellent 36lb 4oz and a comfortable win.
John Bates was on peg two and took a different approach to most, fishing a small feeder with chopped worm about three quarters across for a lovely net of good perch and a solitary skimmer for 11lb 14oz and second spot.
Steve Borrett and Don Green were either side of the bridge and had similar nets with Steve just edging it with 11lb 9oz of whip and waggler caught rudd to Don’s 10lb 12oz of rudd all on the 8m whip to hand.
Wednesday Open at Main Road: 1 John Taylor 6lb 2oz; 2 Ian Benton 5lb 9oz; 3 Dennis Houghton 3lb 14oz.
