Summer League R6 2012

Thursday, 30 August 2012

With only roach and rudd counting in the Phyllis Turner Cup a variety of baits including hemp and bread punch were brought into action to avoid all other species.  Ever the traditionalist,  Paul Braund fishing off peg 16, stuck to the classic 'up in the water' method to bring over 8lbs of mostly rudd to the bank for the win.   Caster on the 7 meter whip picked out the bigger 'golden bars', with a couple nudging the 1lb mark.  Adrian Hill and Simon Allen battled it out fish for fish all day and not surprisingly ended up equal 2nd.  Adrian tempted a couple of roach on the hemp but was not able to get this legendary roach attractor fully going.    Brian Powel plugged away on the inside line to take the Lower Basin section with a 5lb bag of roach.  Like many, Brian netted some of the 'wrong' fish inclluding a couple of big perch and a 3lb carp.  There were also a couple of inevitable slabs for Wayne Burnard and Jean Bowden respectively.  The Upper Basin section was also shared between Dick Turner and Peter Giles.  It goes to show you can have a very close contest with just the silver and gold redfins counting.
