Tydd Gote win for Simmonds despite losing the big one
It was a return to the higher number pegs at Main Road for this week's Tydd Gote AC Sunday club match in the expectation of finding a few more fish than of late. However, the fish refused to play ball.
Dave Simmonds was on peg 34 and found a good tench on his pole line with worm for 4lb 9.5oz to take the win, but also had the misfortune to lose a bigger fish on the feeder.
Martyn Thomas on peg 35 took the runners-up spot with two big perch on the feeder for 2lb 4.5oz, but he left it late, both fish coming in the last hour.
Weights fell away after that, Andrew Kilby third with two roach for 2.5oz and Pete Emery and Steve Borrett joint fourth with sticklebacks.
Wednesday Open/Club match at Black Dyke: 1 John Taylor 6lb 11oz; 2 Jez Rockett 4lb 2oz; 3 Don Green 15oz.
