Dave Simmonds wins Tydd Gote Angling Club Wednesday Open from small fish expert John Taylor on North Level at Main Road
The tench continue to feed on the North Level at Main Road with Dave Simmonds (pictured) attracting three good fish from his peg 5 to comfortably win the Tydd Gote Angling Club Wednesday Open.
In an area known for the tench, Simmonds set out his stall for a bonus fish by feeding a worm, caster and maggot line at 11m and was rewarded after about two hours with his first fish.
Simmonds persevered on this line and, with careful topping up, took another two tench in the last hour to go with a handful of bits from his roach line for his 11lb 11oz total.
