WES­LEY SHRUBSOLE’S AN­GLING COL­UMN

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport -

Now the schools have closed for sum­mer, dads out there have no ex­cuse not to take your young­sters fish­ing. This is what Dover dad Aaron Terry did and as you can see, right, from the beam­ing smile, his son Josh is one proud lit­tle an­gler with his bass. This is the way to start your jour­ney into our won­der­ful sport, well done that lad! The Folke­stone An­glers’ lat­est club match saw sum­mer species high on the list with sole to nearly 2lb. Top rod was Andy Gainey (2.180kg) fol­lowed by Marytn Reid (2.010kg) and Ja­cob Gainey (1.880kg) – that in­cluded the sole. The Martin Wal­ters An­glers took ad­van­tage of the deep wa­ter off Folke­stone pier to find some good sport. Top rod was Hawkinge an­gler Shaun Carey with dog­gies and pout for 14lb 10oz. Paul Nor­ris (7lb 12oz) was sec­ond, with Andy Gainey third (3lb). Back at the West pa­rade, the Foun­tain An­glers found the go­ing tough with Gary Chantler top rod (2.255kg). Mark Howard was sec­ond (615g) and Dar­ren Plum­mer in third (560g). Sole, whiting and dog­gies were caught. At Cackle Hill Lakes, Bid­den­den, Martin Humphries landed a 25lb 8oz mir­ror carp. This day-ticket venue is well worth a visit.
