The third Round of the Bag Up League
The BAG UP league was fished on the Old and New Canals at the popular Ryecroft fishery at Hemmington. The weather had greatly improved, and most angler’s were fairly comfortable.
The out right run away winner was John King, who amassed a brilliant 84lbs 8ozs net of Carp. John was on the Old Canal on peg 11, pole fishing at 14.5m with Bread on the bottom, but also caught a number of fish ‘on the drop’. This was his first day out with a brand new pole, and he certainly gave it a good christening, and a testing too!.
Second place was taken by Paul Skinner with some Silver’s and Carp for 26lbs 3ozs. Paul was drawn on peg 3 on the New Canal and fished pole on the far side with maggot, for his 2nd placing weight.
Nigel Brailsford took Third place with 20lbs 12ozs from peg 6 on the New Canal. Nigel also fished pole on the far side to take a similar net of fish, and also fished maggot I believe.
Other weights were 4th. Nick Mossop 17-4-0, 5th. Dave Cotterill 16-9-0.
Section 1:- Mick Lager 15-7-0.
Section 2:-John King 84-8-0.
