Carter haul a clear winner

COLNES Angling Society’s hard working match secretary took a well-deserved win at Assington Lake.

Paul Carter’s 61lb haul was well clear of runner-up Dave McKechnie’s 43lb 6oz. In third was Billy Hughes with 37lb 12 oz, ahead of George Bonner, who weighed in with 26lb.

It had been a different story the previous week. With the temperatures in the 70s, the fish seemed keener on sunbathing than feeding.

There were a few red faces, as four failed to weigh in, but there was a clear winner in Billy Hughes, who caught 18lb.

Terry Sowerby claimed the runner-up spot with two bream making up 13lb of his 16lb 12oz catch.

Peter Pound came third with 9lb 4oz, while Ron Barrett came fourth with a net of 6lb.
