Chandlers Cup
Sunday 12th February 2017
Club Lake
19 Fished
It was nice to get back onto a venue where bites were plenty and weights were good. Doug Robinson continued his good form. He had 20 bream to 7lb on the pole with pellet. Chris Webb on the opposite bank to him pushed Doug all way. He was one bream short of winning. Chris also caught on the pole with pellet. Jack Griffiths was the early leader but the shoal of bream moved out and all he could do is watch Doug overtake him. Jack also caught on the pole with pellet. There were some cracking nets of roach and skimmers caught as well, after a recent stocking of 800lb from Orchid lakes.

Weeks leading up to the match the roach have been feeding in abundance. Come the day of the Roach Cup and who forgets to get an invite! Yes the roach switched off and anglers scratched around to muster a weight. Normally double figures would win the match. Pete Clarke was a worthy winner. He put together a net of small roach on the hemp/tare and waggler which also earned him the 68.00 Golden Peg. Chris Webb also opted for the waggler. All his fish were caught on caster. Brian Hutchings was a close third. He caught all his fish on the pole with hemp and tare.

Pete Clarke drew they in form peg 33 and made no mistake on winning the match from the hot peg. He started on the long pole on the deck with pellet and had several small carp. A quick switch to the island with pellet up in the water brought him a fish a chuck until the whistle for a convincing win. Brian Hutchings started off slow but a change to banded pellet pushed him up to second. He also had a good net of small carp. Chris Webb was third a good last hour. He fished tight over all match with pellet. But a switch down the edge gave him several bigger carp to get into the money.

He lost several good fish at the weigh in when he ripped his net on the platform. Stuart Yates was third with carp and skimmers taken down the edge on the top 2 kit.
