Borrett wins at Tydd with two late tench
There was a change of venue for Tydd Gote angling club’s Sunday match, with anglers finding their way to the Raisen’s Bridge section, where summer weights had been consistently good.
But the cold and windy weather and clear water didn’t encourage the fish to feed and it was just the odd bonus fish and small roach and skimmers that could be tempted.
Well out in front from favoured peg five was Steve Borrett with two tench to worm and some silvers to pinkie for 9lb 8oz.
But Steve left it late, both tench coming in the last half hour from his 8m worm line.
Andy Toogood was second from peg six, the other side of the pylons, taking a big skimmer and silvers on pinkie over groundbait to finish on 3lb 12oz.
Weights then plummeted, Dave Simmonds on peg four with 14oz and Andrew Kilby fourth with 12oz on peg fourteen.
Wednesday Open (Black Dyke): 1= Archie Greenwood and Pete Emery 6lb 3oz; 3 Ian Benton 4lb 1oz.
