Eight (8) anglers from Horsley Piggot AC turned up for this Saturday club match on Woodside pool. Conditions on the day were quite hot with very little wind. The resident carp could be seen cruising in the upper layers in twos & threes and looked like they were getting ready to spawn again.
Winner on the day was Dale Cooksey, who drew peg 5. Opting to fish corn down his edge for most of the match he found odd silvers and quality carp up to 10lbs to weigh in a final 69-13-00 and confirm a comfortable win.
Finishing in second place was David Howell from peg 9. Alternating between maggot and corn down his edge, David found quality silvers with odd carp to finish proceedings with 29-09-00.
Close behind in third place was John Deakin, who drew peg 4. Again, like Dave, John fishing both corn and maggot down his edge to offer 29-07-00 to the scales.
