Tydd Gote Angling Club's Dave Parlett is top performer at Main Road, doubling weight of runner-up Don Green
Tydd Gote Angling Club stalwart Dave Parlett was top performer at the Sunday club match at Main Road, more than doubling the weight of runner-up Don Green.
With a strong downstream wind, Dave couldn’t fish quite as far out as he wanted to at peg 2.
But his worm hookbait fished at 10m was soon picked up by a big tench and with another following later in the match along with some good perch Dave put 18lb 2oz on the scales for an impressive win.
At the next upstream peg Don Green employed his favoured hemp and tares approach for some quality roach in his 8lb 14oz net and second place with Pete Emery’s 4lb 14oz off peg 4 enough for third place. Upstream of the road bridge Dennis Houghton headed a series of close weights to take fourth spot with 4lb 12oz.
Wednesday Open at Main Road: 1 Dennis Houghton 12lb 13oz; 2 John Taylor 10lb 3oz; 3 Bob Bates 7lb 2oz.
