A busy weekend for the Drennan Bordon team, which saw the lads fish a number of venues across the south of England.
Andy Quarmby drew peg 125 on Lake 3 for the first round of the annual Monk’s Spring League.
“It’s fished really hard overall due to the recent cold rain and a bright still day. Thankfully, I managed to win the lake with 110lb, fishing negatively with pellets at 14 and 16m.
“The team ended up with 16 points which were just enough to win the day. A brilliant start to the league, but a long way to go.”
“I started off catching roach on the punch at the bottom of the near shelf. Then 30-minutes in I decided to have a little look on my chop worm line down the track. I had two quick perch putting 3lb in the net before that line went quiet. Throughout the match, I kept swapping between the two lines to end with seven perch and some roach to end with 10lb 10oz to win the match.”
It was off to the Gold Valley open for Stefan Gent. Stefan was more than happy with his draw, corner peg 119 and fancied it for a few fish.
“I started on the method feeder I had nothing in first 20 mins, so I switched to the waggler and really expected to catch, but still I had no signs. Eventually, I managed a few on method feeder, but they never really settled in the peg.”
Stefan finished the match with twelve small carp for just under 76lb, enough for second place.
