This weekend saw me fish the annual River Wye Championships. Having become runner up a couple of times in this event, my expectations were high when I drew the Fownhope section 5 miles below Hereford. Knowing the right peg could produce a winning weight. However I drew peg 138 in the caravan section. Having a late run of dace I caught 28lb 2oz to win that section, just 3lb out of the main prize money.

Back to Port Talbot Docks and with the same results as last week with all the major weights coming from the first few pegs. Steve Eryes winning from peg 3 with 47lb of skimmers. I drew next to last weeks peg, number 12. This time beating Mike Towler and Anthony Hogg (The venue specialists) with a section win of 24lb10oz of skimmers and a few roach. All caught twitching red maggot and worm along the bottom.

Back to Port Talbot Dock. It seems just a few moments ago that I was fishing the Popular Winter series at Port Talbot Dock in South Wales. The start of the this year match, had a mixed response after a pre match fish off. With all the major weights coming from the first few pegs. Rob Jones from Caerphilly won the match with 37lb of skimmers from peg 3. I Drew next to the venue expert Mike Towler Peg 13 and 14. Mike just beating me for the section with 26lb to my 22lb 12oz

The Winter season is back already and the first of the River Wye Series fished on the Belmont section in Hereford started this Sunday. With a good turnout of 12 teams. However with heavy rain over night the River started to rise as we fished. With some anglers struggling the weight we not that bad. 26lb on the tennis courts was the winning weight. I had a good draw Peg 89 opposite the rowing club. After scaling down to size 20 and single maggot I managed to land three Chub and one Perch for 14lb 12oz and winning my section and 4th overall. Local team Woody’s won the team event and our team Nomads 6th.
