Mixed re­sults af­ter drop in tem­per­a­ture

Sunday Sun - - Angling - BY PAUL ARM­STRONG

THE much chill­ier and vari­able con­di­tions of the last week has had a marked ef­fect is lo­cal wa­ter. Some wa­ters have con­tin­ued to pro­vide the fab­u­lous sport we have been en­joy­ing all sum­mer, while oth­ers have seen an­glers strug­gling for any sort of re­sult.

The An­gel of the North con­tin­ues with its ter­rific form – in an out­stand­ing week plea­sure an­glers were catch­ing so many fish they were hav­ing to take breaks to rest their aching arms!

In the matches it’s the usual story of you need a “ton” to frame. John Foster weighed in 213lb 5ozs to win last Sun­day’s Open on Look­out Lake, John Dry­den fol­lowed with 108lb 1oz ahead of Dean Ap­pleby with 106lb 8ozs.

It was a bit dif­fer­ent for the Se­nior Cit­i­zens and Dis­abled of the Big Wa­ters AC when they turned up for their fi­nal match of their se­ries at the Big Wa­ters lake.

Surf­boards would have been a bet­ter choice rather than fish­ing tackle as atro­cious con­di­tions greeted them! Nev­er­the­less, the hardy few de­cided to fish the mael­strom, un­for­tu­nately a re­gret­ful choice. Ev­ery­one blanked, with not even a bite recorded, but well done for try­ing! Steve Freer took the ti­tle with 38 points, Les Gore­ham fol­lowed with 37 points and Roy Small com­pleted the top three with 35 points.

The above club fished their an­nual Diss­ing­ton Tro­phy last Sun­day where a nice 4lb-plus ide and a few bits gave the win to Barry Evans, Steve Freer fol­lowed with 2lb 10oz ahead of Paul O’Don­nell with 2lb 5ozs.

Sun­day’s Open at Eden Grange was won by Craig Grant with 58lbs, ahead of Paul El­liot with 49lb 5oz and Al­lan Blyth with 40lb 10ozs.
