SUMMER LEAGUE MATCH RESULTS

The first match in the 2021 Summer League, the A. Walker Cup, was fished on Sunday 23rd May 2021. There had been heavy rain for a few days prior to the match and it did have some affect on certain Pegs on the pool namely the lower end of the pool. There were some very good Anglers who did not have a bite. This was not the case for the top end of the pool which dominated catches with notable weights being taken.
The winner on the day was Sam Walsh on Peg 2 who fished to the island where he caught Carp on Method Feeder for a fine total of 67 lbs 7 ozs. In second place was Mark Jones on Peg 27 who also fished a method feeder for Carp for 51 lbs 5 ozs. Third place went to Nigel Watts on Peg 1 with 34 lbs 6 ozs. There were two section prizes going to Adam Sharples on Peg 6 with 12 lbs 6 ozs and Martin Groutage on Peg 20 with a single carp for 11 lbs 1 oz.
