Falcon Cup

Wednesday, 15 August 2012

One hundred and twenty five pounds of fish were brought to the scales by the 16 anglers contesting the annual Falcon Cup,  an average weight of 7lbs 8ozs per angler!  What was equally pleasing was that the big nets of fish were spread amongst the pegs and most of these nets were primarily made up of silvers, with some good roach, rudd and the odd perch making the weights.  On the day Simon Allen took advantage of the 'Bream Master's' absence with a comprehensive 18lb+ haul to win the match and move into the overall Summer League lead by 8 points.  Simon alternated between the long and short pole to keep the silvers interested all day long.  Paul Baund and Duncan Edwards both netted 12lb+ bags to finish second and third respectively with Adrian Hill picking up 4th with an 11lb+ net after deciding to sit it out for 'the lumps' and netting a slab and a couple of carp late on.  Jean Bowden must have been disappointed to only win her section with a 10lb bag of silvers but with the Canal on top form you need at least double figure bag to frame.

Get yourself down to the canal and fill your boots!  Don't forget the Charity Match next Sunday, prizes for all, entry is £10 donation to support our local postie Mark Bowman in getting the funds for the lifesaving treatment he urgently needs.
