2014 - LOUGHBOROUGH CANAL MASTERS WINTER LEAGUE ROUND 2 - December 21st
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 ?
