The all in was shouted and I made my way up to peg 11 where twelve year old Matthew Parker was fishing the whip, he was into roach straight away and looking down the canal all the juniors seemed to be catching. Next stop was twelve year old Courtney Pas on peg 9 and she was wielding a ten metre pole like a pro, fishing tight to the far bank cover and catching some quality roach.
|Matthew was into roach straight away on the whip|
|Courtney was fishing the long pole like a pro|
|George was getting plenty of bites|
|Bradley with a nice roach|
|Clifford landing a skimmer with a bit of help from his dad|
|Courtney was getting some quality roach|
|and so was George|
Courtney was still catching well and fishing against the far bank cover, she had bites all day long, even catching a few on corn. Matthew was still getting some roach on the whip although the wind was affecting presentation with the long line. Scott shouted for the all out and after they had all packed up, the scales made their way up to start the weigh in with Matthew at the top end. As he pulled his net out there was a fair bit of splashing and the digital readout settled on 2lb 11oz. Then we got to Courtney and she had some quality roach to go in front with 3lb 5oz.
|Matthew Parker was first to weigh with 2lb 11oz|
|Courtney Pas had 3lb 5oz from peg 9|
|Five year old George Baker had 2lb 13oz|
|Bradley Lawrence weighed in 2lb 14oz|
|Clifford Richardson had 2lb 7oz|
2 - Bradley Lawrence (Ilminster) - 2lb 14oz
3 - George Baker (Tatworth) - 2lb 13oz
4 - Matthew Parker (Ilminster) - 2lb 11oz
5 - Clifford Lawrence (Ilminster) - 2lb 7oz
|I think little George was happy with his goody bucket!|
Last but certainly not least a massive thanks to Bait Tech, Tackleuk and M.B.H Industrial Services Ltd for their very generous sponsorship,
I'm hoping to get to Chard AC's junior match at Perry St next week so look out for a report next Saturday and don't forget to come back to see how I got on at Dillington tomorrow.
