Portland Waters – 11th September 2016

Canal Pool  (Earl of Chesterfield Cup)

  1. Bernard Robinson   99lb  4oz
  2. Charlotte Baker       87lb 14oz
  3. Barry Stokes            81lb  3oz

David Burton ran the match in the absence of Mark Baker, the Match Secretary, but under the watchful eye of Mark’s wife, Charlotte! It was a great turnout to this popular venue, with 23 anglers taking part. Considering the number of people fishing, it fished quite well with only one person not weighing in.

Bernard Robinson took the top spot on the day, catching carp on the pole throughout the match from peg 10.  Hot on his heels was Charlotte Baker, who fished her first ever match without her husband.  She drew peg 28 and caught carp to 8lb on the feeder.

Barry Stokes completed the frame, despite drawing unfavoured peg 16.

Mention should also go to Cory Williamson, the only junior in RoTAS, who caught on feeder and pole in the margins and weighed 60lb 11oz to finish up in a highly creditable 8th place.
