Open Match, Woodside Pool


Thirteen (13) anglers attended this latest Saturday open match on the Woodside pool.


Winner on the day was Ben Sutor from peg 3 on the point of the island. Ben started his match long over to the island but after a slower than expected start, Ben changed tact and targeted cruising fish up in the water with pellet for the most part of the match. A brief look down his edge late on with maggot produced a few bonus fish to give Ben a final winning weight of 92-01-00.


Second place was awarded to Chris Hall from peg 13. Fishing shallow with 6mm pellet on the pole, Chris found mainly carp up to 8lb to weigh in 70-04-00.


Taking the last of the mainframe finishes was Andy Rowbottom. Opting to fish micro pellet over to the island from peg 5, Andy found carp to 8lb to offer a final 38-04-00 to the scales to finish narrowly ahead of fourth placed Vinny Varden.
