Best pegs by bridge saw winning weights topped by Charlie Vallender with 24lb 14oz of roach and small perch

By Fenland Citizen Reporter

There were two small matches on the March Twenty Foot and the Old Nene at Benwick, both venues that will also be included in the HAJAC final.

Stanjay Tackle from Huntingdon ran them to give those that could not get a ticket for the big March open a chance to practise under match conditions on the final venues.

On the Twenty Foot the best pegs by the bridge saw the winning weights, topped by Charlie Vallender with 24lb 14oz of roach and small perch taken on a short pole line because of the wind, fishing maggot over groundbait.

Second was match organiser Stan Binge with 21lb 11oz, followed by Malc Ellement on 19lb 3oz.

Over at Benwick it was Troy Weaver taking the honours. He caught small fish from peg 4 on the whip for 14lb 14oz.

Second was Tony Barker on 9lb 9oz, then came Tom Price with 8lb 12oz.

There was an open match on Saturday at Buttonhole Fishery. Those fishing were not sure how it would fish after the venue had been frozen over in the week but, thankfully, the carp responded for some of those braving the conditions.

Top rod from peg 2 was Andy Rose with a very impressive 108lb 6oz. Andy caught early in the match fishing the pole, before switching to a straight lead approach as the wind got stronger, fishing sweetcorn.

In second place was Mark Grange weighing in 54lb 5oz from peg 22.

Weather permitting there will be regular Saturday opens, to book in or for more information give Chris Smith a call on 07928 222462.

The Tydd Gote midweek match was switched to the in-form March Twenty Foot as the North Level Drain was frozen.

They fished the Footbridge section which saw John Taylor put a fine 25lb 11oz to the scales.

A close second with 23lb 10oz was Pete Emery, followed by Darren Wilson on 12lb 4oz.
