Happy new year for Tydd Gote Angling Club's Steve Borrett who wins Sunday match at Main Road
There was a good turnout for the latest Tydd Gote Angling Club Sunday match at Main Road and, with the drain low and running again, most wanted a draw near to the bridge.
Steve Borrett was some way from the bridge on peg 5, but in an area that can throw up an odd tench or two – and so it proved as he found three good specimens to his worm and red maggot over caster at 11m to take the win with 15lb 2oz.
Pete Emery was next door on peg 6 and had to wait until the drain stopped running before the tench moved to him. He also found three in the last hour or so to similar tactics for 14lb 2oz and second place.
Andy Lawrence was on the concrete and fished the whip short with bronze maggot to take a mixed net of silvers for 12lb 2oz for third, with Andrew Kilby on the first platform above the bridge taking 10lb 6oz of roach, rudd and skimmers on a 3m whip and maggot for fourth spot.
With other good backing weights approaching 9lb the drain fished consistently well.
