A small turn out of eight (8) anglers attended our Saturday open match held on Woodside pool. Conditions were extremely warm and muggy with lots if fish cruising in the upper layers but showing little interest in angler's baits.
Finishing in first place was Jon Mawdsley, who drew peg 3. Alternating between long and short pole with 6mm pellet, Jon found mainly carp to weigh in 58-15-00 to collect £65.
Close behind in second place was Scott Sprigg from in form peg 1. Opting to fish paste down his edge, Scott found carp to 12lbs to weigh in 58-14-00 to finish just 1oz shy of Jon's winning weight. Scott picked up £40 for his efforts.
Completing an extremely close top three finish was Scott Rhodes from peg 6. Offering pellet on the pole both short and long, Scott ended the day with 53-02-00.
