Angling

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport All The Week’s Action... - By Wes­ley Shrub­sole

Our lo­cal venues are pro­duc­ing some stun­ning fish at the mo­ment so get out there and give it a go! On the canal at Hythe, a stun­ning 33lb 8oz com­mon carp graced the net for Stu­art Wells and was one of two large carp from the venue this week. For the cost of a day ticket it must be worth a go. From Princess Pa­rade, Dave WoodBrig­nall landed a large 42cm plaice for a per­sonal best – and that will taste good! The Med­way Rollers Sea Angling Club were down at Hythe for their lat­est match and top rod was Alan Un­der­down with 2.340kg. Tony Flack was sec­ond (1.840kg) and Lionel Wat­son third (1.820kg). Dog­fish, plaice and pouting were caught. The DAA Se­niors felt the full force of the cold east­erly wind at their lat­est match on the wall at Lit­tle­stone. John Wig­stone was the win­ner with a catch-and-re­lease length of 177cm. Sec­ond spot went to Mick Reynolds with 153cm and Steve Foster was third (129cm). Se­ries leader with 1,699cm is Ash­ford an­gler John Smith. Ash­ley Brown fished a com­pe­ti­tion at Herne Bay and landed a stun­ning stingray of 65lbs! The fish has a tail that can cause ma­jor in­jury, as it is like a jagged-edged sword. Please take care with th­ese fish and if in any doubt, just cut the line and let it swim away. No pic­ture is worth your life. If you have any news or views on our sport, con­tact me at wes­leyshrub­sole@ gmail.com
