Match anglers braving the weather in the weekend’s open match at Angel of the North Fishery in County Durham had a surprise when the lake record was beaten.
With the water temperature at only six degrees Derek Fox produced a wily performance to get the carp feeding on soft hooker pellet close in, for a very impressive 112-1-0. Derek fished tight in at 11m to his right on peg 15, cupping in Angel feed pellets after each fish. He was well clear of Ant Richardson who had 48-5-0 on peg 11. Not bad for November!!
