Summer League R8 – Shakerley Mere

Round 8 of the summer series was held on Shakerley Mere today. Not a good turnout with only six fishing with a few away plus with news spreading that Jimmy Byrne had been on and blanked probably keeping a few away. The conditions were good with mostly cloud cover and a descent ripple on the water later in the match also some big carp showing in the margins prior to the match starting. We decided to use the high numbered pegs starting from 50 working back missing every other peg.

The first couple of hours were slow with the overnight rain probably having a effect with only the odd fish caught but once it warmed up a little and the breeze picked up so did the fishing. In the last match a couple of years ago there was more fish caught but it was noticeable that the ones caught today were of a better stamp.
Mark Davies won the match drawn on peg 46. Biteless for two hours Mark eventually managed to put a run of small roach together fishing the pole at 12m with maggot as feed and bait. Although not hectic fishing in the end it was a enjoyable days fishing.

Alan Faulkner on peg 48 finished in second place again fishing with maggot to catch small roach plus a couple of skimmers.

Jimmy Byrne drawn on end peg 50 finished in third place with a catch of small roach taken on maggot. The biggest fish of the day fell to Chris Finneran with a 1lb 9oz bream caught on treble maggot on the feeder rod.
1st M.Davies 3.11
2nd A.Faulkner 3.01
3rd J.Byrne 2.11
4th C. Finneran 1.10
Next match 13/08/17 on Grimditch Pool.
