Shakespeare Championship Qualifier
Saturday July 3rd
Warwickshire Avon – Evesham Town Waters and Hampton Ferry
Chub winner for Ian
Despite the baking hot temperature, a very clear river and a significant amount of boat traffic there were some good returns at the latest Shakespeare Championship qualifier.
Leading the way at Peg 35, just below the Isbourne confluence, was Ian Sutherland of the Land Rover club with 14-8-0 of small chub, mostly taken on a small maggot feeder fished well across the river.
Roach featured in the second and third placed catches with Tony Marshall of Quorn VDE taking the runner up prize with a catch of 9-2-8 taken on hemp from Peg 14. Third was Darren Davies (Drennan) with 8-9-0 of hemp roach from Peg 22.
Fourth place went to Richie Reynolds (Quorn VDE) with 8-0-0 of chub and perch from Peg 5. Dave Harpin (Daiwa Dorking) came in fifth with 7-7-0 of chub and eels from Peg 56 and completing the frame was Dave Harrell (Match Fishing) with 7-4-0 from Peg 31.
