The day started badly as the Deeps end at Pillings lock as the entry gate to the field was locked yet it was freely open the evening before as one of the lads pegged the section out . Investigations to why that is are underway.
Also this day the Glebe street section was a problem due to parking and some of the anglers were parked as instructed yet received fines . I have contacted one of the anglers and will pursue the council to understand their reasoning when the sign clearly stated restriction on a Monday to Saturday basis . We shall place an appeal .
At the Deeps end David Revill of SAS took the top honours with a Individual river 2nd position and a handsome catch of 22-3
MAS BLUE Jarred Toone with 2nd in section 13-14 , John Lock of Colmic Soar tackle taking the section with 18-1
