  • Bidford Weds Open 12th March

    15 turned up to fish the last wednesday match of the season, for which we fished 6hrs. A bit disappointing that it wasn't a 20 sellout, however a few othe river matches on the same day split the anglers, so we lost a couple that would have come. Still it meant we could leave some of the lesser pegs out. As it was there was only one I didn't want, 21, and guess where drew! However after spending and hour an a half messing about I eventually clocked that it was full of bleak, in fact solid, and thankfully the longer match meant that there was still time to do some damage. If the brain was working faster could have won. Still, ask the captain of the Titanic about wishing for the benfit of hindsight...

    The river was still carrying some pace, and the big roach didn't really show, but plenty of small ones fed, and some big chub came out...

    1st Pete Morris Sensas/ WB Clarkes, 10lb 11oz, peg 47, one big chub on meat and roach on stick
    2nd Trevor Chalk, Sensas/ WB Clarkes, 9lb 11oz, peg 21m, 400 bleak, 6m whip
