Golden event for Ken

LAST Sunday turned out to be a golden one for Broughton angler Ken “Fluffy Whiskers” East.

Fishing the Open at Fourways Fishery he managed to win the match and then he was drawn on the golden peg.

His three figure winnings were hard gained, as he only won a low weight match by 4oz. Fishing from peg 12 on a cold foggy day, Ken had 9-4.

Second, once again, was Paul Wright with 9-00 off peg 7. Third equal were Harry “The Hitman” Chesman and Dave “The Greek” Pearson off pegs 29 and 24, with 8-10 each.

Catch the Koi was not won. Next week’s golden peg starts at £25. The next open is on Sunday November 27 and is the Christmas Open. The draw takes place at 9am with fishing between 10am-3pm. Entry is £14.

n Please note, the fishery will be closed to pleasure anglers from Tuesday November 29 until December 15. Sunday matches on December 4, 11 and 18 will take place as usual.
