Dynamite Baits Festival, Day Three.
It was a frosty cold start to the day but the sun shone through and the fishing went on.
After yesterdays match the results were so close it could go anyway, has today’s action changed the leader board.

D SECTION POLLAWYN
Wow!! That just sums it up really, the number (and size) of carp that came out of the high bank yesterday was nearly unbelievable, although some areas of the lake fish better than others, the un favoured areas still offer a tough challenge for those vital catch points. The weights yesterday were amazing, hard to believe that Andy Geldart had a great match and weighed in with 127lbs but didn’t frame and was only fourth in the section! The staggering winning weight of 205lb 1oz came from Rob Wootton on peg 25, Rob caught (as did all the top four on the lake) shallow on the waggler with pellet. Tim Row took second from peg 17 with 185lb 1oz, third was Stuart Lister with 136lb 15oz from peg 28 and Dave Rudman had the next best weight on peg 27 with 134lb 8oz. If it carries on this way half of the fisheries team will be booked into the chiropractors next week!!

TIM ROWE 9 POINTS 185LB 1OZ
MARK PERKINS 9 POINTS 55LB 3OZ
