Match 9 – Furnace Mill 12/07/2020

Mucky Meadow

15 fished

Due to a later than normal start time (venue gates open at 8:00) we drew pegs online again using Zoom meetings. This enabled everyone to get to their pegs once allowed on site.

Anyone who knows the pool, will tell you about the other wild life on-site from crayfish to snakes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ they were all in the pool on Sunday, even Brian of the Pickstone variety made an appearance at this match 🤣.

Once the sandwich order had been devoured, (thanks to the club 👍) the fishing got going in earnest. With every method being tried to catch the catch rate went through a lean period with the usual carp not cruising the upper layers.

The result was also a bit of a shock when Terry took first place with 80-12 ahead of Guy, who drops points for the first time this season and Dan who really favoured his practice session peg. With only 9lb between the top three, it proved to be a good contest.

We weighed in a total of 561lb at this match.

1Terry Eardley3380-12
2Guy Jones5177-8
3Dan Podmore3271-4
