De­coy ace Andy comes in handy

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Angling -

Af­ter a very busy hol­i­day pe­riod JVAC got back to their nor­mal weekly fix­ture on Sun­day and had enough an­glers to use both Six Is­lands and the Elm Pool.

On Six Is­lands it was Barry Gil­son lead­ing the way. He­drew peg six and took a net of carp on the pole with mag­got and pel­let putting 66lb 8oz to the scales. Next came Paul Irons with 64lb 8oz fol­lowed by Roger Gowler with 53lb 15oz.

On the Elm Pool Andy Gaus­den was a clear win­ner and he gets my ‘ Catch of the Week’ award.

Gaus­den took the hon­ours with 66lb 11oz from peg eight fish­ing the long pole with soft pel­let. He is un­doubt­edly one of the top ex­po­nents of pel­let fish­ing at De­coy Lakes or in deed most meth­ods th­ese days.

Many of the top an­glers still seek him out for ad­vice as his knowl­edge of just about ev­ery peg on the com­plex is in­valu­able.

I do not mind ad­mit­ting I have at times given him a call to get the run down on a peg or two.

Run­ner- up with 48lb 6oz was Roy Wells fol­lowed by Mick King on 46lb 6oz.

Andy Gaus­den.
