25/5/2024 Fourth “Winter Pools Series” match at Shrewley Pools

Ten turned out for a match at Shrewley, earlier we had switched the pegs after finding lots of scum down the bottom end. We had the left bank and parking was excellent. New member Mark V. joined us and Andy C. drew the Bonus Peg.  

Result;-

Nick Cullis 26-1-0, Brian Burton 18-6-0, Glen Beavon 11-1-0.

Outcome;-

A frustrating match, dry & sunny with Carp on the surface everywhere but not feeding, generally you couldn’t get a bite fishing down. The winner caught shallow leaving the bait stationary feeding 4 pints of maggots awaiting bites. The pool seems to be heavily stocked but we found the fish in a strange mood, that’s fishing. Thanks to Andy, Marcus & new member Mark for weighing in.

With one match to go Pete & Glen are both on 14 points.
