2020 Evening Series – Match 1

Tuesday 16th June 2020

9 anglers fished Nutford Farm (field 1), a bright but cloudy evening ahead without any forecast of rain. The water was clear in the top 12 inches or so, with plenty of Chublets, Dace and Perch to be seen in each swim.

With swims cut and some work to be done, select pegs were chosen for the draw, with feedback welcomed from each angler, post-match, on any adjustments needed.

Waggler was the choice for all, maggot and worm being the baits used. Some choosing to use a ground bait, the key to success was regular feeding to attract fish to the peg and avoid the minnows!

Terry pulled out a single Perch – and what a fish it was, a health looking example just over the 1lb mark. Chris had the largest Chub of the evening which wasn’t individually weighed but looked like it would be getting towards 1lb.

Well done to Alex for a great weight on the evening, and to Chris and Stewart demonstrating that no matter where you are in the pegging you can put a catch together.
