The last match before Xmas and all to play for as a section wins gets you into the final . Will it be B+J attack or a total choppie attack or Punch with a caster surprise . Well the weather had remained mild all week and the rivers were up a lot due to a brief hard downpour so what is the state of the canal ?

Draw time and S13 ……unlucky for some ? ….i had the scales / board .

 The enigmatic , mercurial , talismanic Darren Bickerton top angler of the Starlets stable .

 To my left

4 set ups of 2 x SENSAS CXX1 4x10 on 0.14 line to SENSAS 14/16 HOOKS and  2 x 0.2gr SENSAS Jeffs on 0.9/0.6 , 22's

Menu ……chopped worm , caster , mags and pinks….no B+J ….         :(

 Next section after the bridge we walked to gain the scales only to see Cam Hughes with his top section weight of over 5 kilos !

Back to our section and on peg 1 ….

Winner Asa Cooper with 3.4

Darren Bickerton with 2140gr for 3rd

My reward was this lone Stripey , lost another but they don't count !

Colin Wise on peg 14 took 2nd place with 2300 and great angling on the B+J

Great day and great venue as the overall winner had a staggering 11 kilos !!…… who said Canal fishing was not good ?

Great event run from Joff and Brian.

2015 will see round 3
