Angling: Win for Ann Bogg at Brooklands
4:26pm Wednesday 29th February 2012 in Sport
Ann Bogg put her male competitors firmly in their place at Brooklands Lake on Monday, top scoring in the Contemptibles match with 23lb 12oz.
Casting out towards the island with feeder and maggot at peg nine, she attracted the attention of three carp, the best of which tipped the scales at 10lb 1oz.
Mike Heelis sat close by at peg 10 and had to be content with 21lb 12oz and second place.
Colin McNeil landed five times the weight of his nearest rival in Tuesday’s G B Angling Club match at Rosedale Fishery, recording a level 15lb.
He opened his account with a carp on the six-metre pole and maggot before switching to the ground-bait feeder to take a further four carp, three skimmers and a brace of roach.
Weights dropped off sharply after this and it was left to Roy Rodgers to fill second place with 3lb.
McNeil carried on his winning ways on Friday, beating a strong field in Wetlands AC’s match on the High Bank at Raker Lakes with a net of 24lb 10oz. Alternating between maggot and pellet on the bomb at peg five, he banked nine carp to the 6lb mark.
Brian Pallister fished identical tactics to the winner at peg 10 and secured runners-up spot with 18lb 10oz.
The Contemptibles fished a waggle-only silver fish match on the carp lake at Wykeham Fishery last Friday and enjoyed good sport.
Pallister led the way with a solid 11lb 2oz from peg five, taking 24 perch up to 1lb 8oz apiece plus roach and rudd on waggler and maggot tactics.
Tony Mellor led the chasing pack with 9lb 2oz from peg 11.
Strong winds forced the York midweek match to be switched from the High Bank to the more sheltered Horseshoe at Raker Lakes last Wednesday. The in-form Pallister got to grips with the conditions best, netting four carp to 6lb plus a chub and a few roach for 26lb.
Stuart Thompson led the chasing pack with 14lb 3oz.
A limited number of places are available and must be reserved at least one week prior to the event by phoning Paul Thompson on 01653 618602.
