FUR AND FEATHER MATCH - SUNDAY 8th DECEMBER 2019

The Fur and Feather Match - the B.T. Walker Memorial Cup,  was fished on Sunday 8th December 2019.  Ten anglers turned out which was pleasing to see.  It was pretty windy and the anglers endured a couple of fierce wind and rain /hail storms but it was a good match in the end.  The winner on the day was Neil Walker who drew Peg 20 and caught ten Carp on pole and maggot for a great weight of 57 lbs 10 ozs.   In second place on the day was "Boz" Simmonds on Peg 10 who caught several Carp on the pole and maggot, including one at 12 lbs 12 ozs, for a weight of 36 lbs10 ozs.  Third place went to  John "Scales" Lee on Peg 6 who caught three Carp on feeder/pellet for a weight of 23 lbs 6 ozs.  Club Secretary Dave Walker finished 4th but wished it had been a Winter League Match as he caught an all roach catch of 9 lbs 4 ozs from Peg 7 on pole/maggot.  There were two section prizes going to Dave Walker and Lawrence Rooney with 5 lbs 4 ozs from Peg 15. There was £50 worth of "booze" put up by the Club and a number of donated bottles as well so all the Anglers went home happy.  Hic. Hic.    It was a special day for Dave Walker who presented his son Neil with his grandfathers Memorial Cup.
