2018 Senior Championships – Match 5

Sunday 24th February 2019

For the final match of the 2018-2019 Senior Championship we returned to Nutford Form, field 1. Conditions were seemingly ideal with coloured water and fair weather. 5 anglers turned out, with 3 anglers jostling for the top placings – it was anyone’s guess given previous results.

Despite seemingly ideal conditions the fishing was hard with all measures and tactics attempted with little to show in the net.

Dave O’Loughlin won the match with 8oz; fishing the furthest peg upstream. Being pegged upstream typically has seen anglers placed with the lowest weights during a match – so well done Dave!

Once again, thank you to all anglers who managed to make it out for the day, the match results are as follows

Weights at the end of the night as follows

We had an interesting season with long dry spells early on, with freak weather on match days which saw us postpone, then very cold weather through winter – it certainly made interesting reading for the weights caught and turn out of anglers,
