Grantham Canal – 21st May 2017

Owthorpe  stretch, pegs 13 – 33   (Stanley Trophy)

  1. Nic Wort            6lb  8oz
  2. Barry Stokes     6lb  4oz
  3. Ray Walker        5lb  8oz

It was a lovely day to be out, sunny and warm, but alas the fishing did not prove to be so prolific as there were not many fish caught.

The two end pegs caught, together with one peg in the fancied area.

Nic Wort continues on his march for the title with a win off end peg 33. His 6lb 8oz included a couple of bream and a few bits, whilst Barry Stokes was the bridesmaid yet again after falling short by just 4oz. He drew peg 22 and had a net which consisted of a pike, a small tench and some bits – but he lost an eel at the net which would have won him the match. Completing the frame was Ray Walker, taking 5lb 8oz from the other end peg (16) with a nice tench and some bits. Another 1lb and Ray could have stolen the Golden Peg Pools.

In the KO Cup, Ray Walker eliminated Steve Rutter and will now take on Pete Marston or Charlotte Baker in the next round.

With 4 of the 14 anglers who took part not bothering the scales, and 5 other anglers only catching ounces, it was overall quite a disappointing day.
