Fourways Fishery

EVERTON fisherman Joe Goulding didn’t let his new sponsor down, when he took first place in Sunday’s Open at Fourways Fishery.

The “Cats and Dogs” sponsored angler fishing off peg 3 had 29-3 of mostly bream and the odd carp. It was this carp, landed on the final whistle, which gave him victory over Westwoodside’s Paul Wright.

Paul on peg 6 finished with 27-8 again bream to the fore. On peg 24 Scunthorpe’s Andy Waite came third with 23-00, including a couple of fine crucians. Fourth went to Dave Andrews of Westwoodside, with 6-8 on peg 15.

Pleasure fishing over the past week has been very hit and miss, with the better catches taking place later in the week. Some 40-00 plus nets of bream, carp and tench with odd crucians and rudd being taken. The next open match is on Sunday, September 25, draw 9am, fishing 10am-4pm.
