The Veals Winter Open
50 competitors took part in near perfect conditions. With some good bags of codling taken in recent days expectations had risen somewhat. The fish however failed to show throughout the venue.
Jason Brown was the only angler to register 2 sizable codling, with only 5 others recorded. On the plus side some nice flounder showed the best falling to flattie specialist Kev Daley of 1lb 6oz. Results overall in 3rd place Shaun Tromans with 1 codling and a large silver eel for 3lb 11oz receiving £40. 2nd place was the all England tripod casting champion Mini Hawkins with a splendid bag of 5 flounder for 4lb 2oz. Winning £90. 1st on the night was Tonto who left it till the dying seconds of the match proving it’s not over till the whistle blows landing this nice bass of 4lb 2oz plus some bits totaling 4lb 8oz, winning £138 and a Zziplex Evo GT Blank. Well done lads.
