Summer League R1 2020

Monday, 22 June 2020

Summer League Round 1,  Monica Jones Cup, Sunday 21st June:

For the record, 24 anglers fished the corresponding competition in 2017 and banked 58lbs 4ozs, 22 fished in 2018 banked 84lbs 8ozs, and 21 in 2019 banking 119lbs (inc 30lbs of carp).  This year, with 5 less anglers  the total was 106lbs with no carp, so we are steadily improving the weights.

After a mega catch off peg 31 in the week Dave Allen followed that up in the match with nearly 13lbs of skimmers and roach to win the Monica Jones Cup off adjacent peg 30.  Jack Crystal posted his best ever result with a double figure bag of skimmers taken on the pole from peg 18 to finish runner up.   Mark Gratton chopped and changed between the pole and tip off peg 13 to bank 9lb 10zs of silvers (with a 2lb bonus bream) for third place.

There were section wins for carp king Ryan Willshire in the Second Basin who used wag 'n mag to net 9lbs of silvers.  The Lower Basin  section win went to Andy Southey who put the tip to good use and bagged  a decent bream and a couple of dog eels to boost his total  catch to 8lb 11ozs.
