OPEN MATCH RESULT/REPORT
EVENT: THURSDAY “NISA” OPEN MATCH
VENUE: MEADOWLANDS FISHERY – LAMBSDOWN
DATE: 24 NOVEMBER 2022
1st Steve RICHARDS 37-14
2nd John ADAMSON (Nisa Feeders) 7-14
(only two weighed in)
Once again the weather was horrible. Throughout the day there was a cold, strong, and gusting wind from the right and in anglers’ faces, then 90 minutes from the end the wind increased and it rained – continuing right through the weigh-in and whilst packing up. Add to that that the recent heavy rain had apparently sharply dropped water temperatures making fish reticent to feed, and it was not a pleasant day to fish.
That said, Steve Richards on peg 25, once he had set up his long-range feeder gear, had a decent day and ended with a decent 37-14 for the win. With wafter bait, Steve caught three decent carp, a stocky plus several skimmers in the latter half of the match (all after Terry Winstone on peg 27 called it a day as he had two wet feet/legs).
In the driving rain, the only other person to weigh in was John Adamson (peg 21) who caught one large bream (around 4 lb) and several skimmers to put 7-14 on the scales. All his fish fell to method feeder fished short in the last 90 minutes.
Steve is shown in the photograph with his catch. Next week the match is on Warren (park behind your peg).
