Press report - Clevedon Club Match 17th January

Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club commenced their Winter Series of three matches which are all being held on the prolific Main Lake on the Plantations complex Kingston Seymour.  There was a good turnout of twenty anglers despite the weather and due to a very cold night on the Friday cat ice was formed on the lake the day before the match. Thankfully a slight rise in temperature saw it disappear but none the less and due to the cold clear conditions the draw would be very important. Match Secretary Adie Baker did have some luck drawing peg 31 with a cast to the back of an island where the carp usually congregate. Concentrating in this area for the whole match and  ledgering a variety of baits with popped up bread being the most productive he broke the ton barrier weighing a magnificent 101lb 14oz for first place. Not that far behind was regular match framer Lance Tucker who weighed 85lb 10oz using similar tactics for second followed by Nick Harvey with 58lb 10oz. It total and despite the winter conditions a total of 383lb of fish was caught by the top 6 anglers.
