well it soon comes around but sadly this was the clubs last aggregate match of the season. we were fishing at the b.a.a. stretch of the river anker at bolehall, tamworth. draw out of the way and myself, gordon, adrian,colin horner, dave gordon had a right old hike up the river bank. anyway we made it without any near death situations
the weather man told us to expect heavy showers on and off all day long. well if that was a shower then i'm a bloody villa fan!!!!!!!!!!!
it started 5 minutes after the whistle to start was sounded and never stopped until 5 minutes before we finished. the rain was so heavy the river level was about 2 foot higher then when we started which didn't help. anyway i drew peg lucky 13
as you can see below.
and my veiw left and right of the river.
just up stream we find carol under her giant mushroom. it was a very hard day's fishing for our top lady angler, well she is our only lady angler to be fair
dan seems happy enough in the rain, stupid boy!
mick webster having a dance on the river bank, well i think thats what he's doing!
jim had a few sprats which was good enough to earn him 2nd place on the day, thats how badly it fished, well done jim.
gordon enjoying the wet weather, he had fun early on with a pike leaping out of the water after his roach, scared the bloody life out of him !
