  • Exeter & District Angling Association 15th July

    Victoria Products League Round Nine - Twenty one anglers travelled to Somerset to fish the River Huntspill for round nine of the Victoria Products League. With it being early in the season form information was thin on the ground then on arrival at the venue it was found to be 3ft down and as the water was being pumped between drains it was flowing strongly. With the forecast for strong wind and bright conditions confidence was not high at the draw but the end pegs were what everyone was hoping for. In the end it was a match of two halves with the top ten averaging over 20lb a man compared to 5lb for the bottom half. Winner on the day from the one before the end peg was Gordon Parkin with 31lb 12oz. His catch won the £75 prize and ten league points after a close close run battle with Andy Bulled. Andy finished with 30lb 10oz for 2nd place which won him £50 and 8 league points. Completing the frame was Duncan Hill with 30lb 6oz from peg 132 which won £35. The feeder was the only succesfull tactice on the day with most anglers fishing and feeding a lot of chopped worm to keep the fish in their swim. Special mention to Dave Sellick who won his section but this was bittersweet because he was on the golden peg and lost three good bream when any one of them could have won him the £150 bonus. Section B was won by Steve Hayman with 25lb 15 and Section C was won by Brian Sussex with 12lb 9oz.

    League Standing: 1st Duncan Hill (Exeter), 112lb 2oz, 62pts; 2nd Zac Newton (Team ALS), 111lb 3oz, 56pts; 3rd Gary Thornton (Team ALS), 87lb 5oz, 52pts; 4th Wayne Mitchell Team Jinx 99lb 1oz, 50pts; 5th Andy Bulled (Exeter), 98lb 5oz, 42pts; 6th Dave Walton (Exeter), 56lb 4oz, 38pts; 7th Roly Palmer (Team Jinx), 51lb 6oz, 38pts; 8th Mark Whetnall (Team Jinx). 41lb 5oz, 36pts; 9th Steve Jeffery (Exeter), 95lb 8oz, 34pts; 10th Keith Carpenter (Exeter), 21lb 8oz, 34pts; 11th Brian Sussex (Exeter), 40lb 9oz, 32pts; 12th Steve Hayman (Exeter), 68lb 3oz, 26pts.

    Evening Series - The evening match was back on the river and despite a bit of water pushing through the colour looked ideal for the fish to feed. All the angers had plenty of bites a and caught dace but it was Zac Newton that managed a bonus 2lb perch in his catch to take the win with 4lb. The venue to be fished is difficult to predict with all the rain that we're having so it you'd like to fish ring Duncan Hill on 07891 384326 to see where the match is due to be.
