The Foun­tain an­glers were at Sam­phire Hoe and found some fish and lots of snags. Chris Causer was the win­ner with 4.078kg, John Wells of Salt­wood was sec­ond with 4.020kg and Del King third with 3.525kg. Nine an­glers fished. Cinque Ports an­glers were on the Prince of Wales sec­tion of the canal and found some of the res­i­dent bream ea­ger to feed. Andy Lewis was the win­ner with 6.400kg, Andy Cam­ber sec­ond (4kg) and Hawkinge an­gler Bill Usher third (3.870kg). The Cinque Ports an­glers were out again last Wed­nes­day night for the first of the Will­ing Cup matches on the canal at Ladies Walk. The weather was per­fect and top rod was Lau­rie Web­ster who was near the road bridge and had tench and bream for 6.950kg. Sec­ond was Colin Con­roy to­ward the band­stand with a 4.780kg and Barry Wil­liamson (2.450kg)third. Ju­nior win­ner was Lyminge’s Luke Hadleigh (2.030kg). It was great to see lots of eels caught and they may just be on the road to re­cov­ery. The Dun­geness an­glers had their lat­est rover com­pe­ti­tion and Gavin Smith chose the shal­low wa­ter off the Lit­tle­stone wall for a good win with 18lb. Sec­ond from Dun­geness was Phil Tan­ner (5lb 8oz) and Paul Mort­lock was third (4lb 9oz). Dog­fish, sole and dabs were in the catches. The glo­ri­ous June 16 is al­most here and an­glers of a cer­tain age will re­mem­ber when we had all been itch­ing for this date as all wa­ters were closed for 93 days. Now, only the river an­gler has had to wait for the golden day when the close sea­son ends – so if you are fish­ing the rivers, I wish you good luck and tight lines.
