        DATE: 3 NOVEMBER 2022
        1st Oliver SLEATH 105-14
        2nd Martin HINCKS (Ajax AC) 84-02
        3rd Terry WINSTONE (Oxford) 64-00
        4th John ADAMSON (Nisa Feeders) 52-03

        After the early morning rain, the weather developed into a dull and cool day with a light SW breeze, although there was some sun later in the afternoon. With the nights drawing in the match was fished from 10 am to 3:30 pm.

        On peg 15, Oliver Sleath set his stall out to catch bream of all sizes and fishing with expanders over micro feed he caught steadily throughout the day. Although he was interrupted by a few carp (which weighed 33-12) he put a magnificent 72-02 of bream and skimmers on the scales for a total of 105-14 and a match win.

        On the opposite bank on peg 12, Martin Hincks found carp in the very shallow margins in about a foot of water, and with corn bait, he extracted some big samples for his second-placed 84-02.

        The other anglers found it very hard going and although everyone caught fish they generally struggled for bites. Terry Winstone (peg 27) eventually found fish in his right margin and included one of over fifteen pounds in his third-placed 64-00, whilst John Adamson (on peg 5 for the third consecutive match) caught all his fish on bomb with the exception of a single “lump” carp which took corn on the margins. His 52-03 took fourth place.

        The photos show the top two with part of their catches (apologies for the photo quality but I had water in the camera from three successive days of fishing in heavy rain), and thanks to all who helped with the weigh-in.

        Next week (10 November) the match will be on Lambsdown (the Deeps). Book in on the morning at the venue by 8:15 am.

        NB. Nisa Opens are held at Meadowlands most THURSDAYS (see Facebook “Nisa – midweek open matches”). Book in at the venue at 8:15 am on match day.
