Monday 10th June 2019, 1st Round Evening Cup

Venue: Curls Farm

Just two competitors took part in round one of this years Evening Cup and they must be commended for their gallantry.

Match Secretary Steve Izzard and Patrick (“Gripper”) Newman braved terrible conditions as the rain continued to pour down, in fact it rained all day and evening.

Special mention must go to Pat who travelled from Kent and to Steve for carrying out his duty professionally, possibly fearing (or hoping!) that no one else would show up. Well done guys.

Both anglers were rewarded with three carp apiece and tied with 21lbs each, rather fitting that no one won outright. All the fish fell for wafters fished with a method feeder.

After what seems like an eternity the start of the river season on the glorious 16th June is almost here, great news, The first match of the new season taking place on Sunday 16th June on the Wallers Haven at Boreham street as we compete for the Southdown Challenge Trophy. Over the years this match has fished well with bream being the order of the day, let's hope it's the same this year.

If you are planning on entering, the draw takes place at 8am, with fishing from 9am to 2pm and it’s highly likely to be a "walk off". We look forward to seeing you there.

The Angling Trust | NEWS

High rivers in many parts of the country resulted in numerous matches being cancelled at the weekend. Competitors were therefore pleasantly surprised to find that the River Calder at Mirfield was only carrying about 10” of extra water.
