Whitmore East Canal was the chosen venue of City Social for the second leg of the inter-club match. Following on from our home leg on Bradshaw Fishery Lake 4, Team Rammy were trailing by 15lb 6oz, so the guys were up against it. As normal Lee ordered in some foul weather, but tried to pass it off this time as not being his fault!! The word on the street was that heavy feeding was going to be the order of the day, and so gallons of maggots were ordered in to make sure we were all prepared.
Well, it turned out that the complete opposite was to be the case, with heavy feeding killing the swim straight away. It proved to be a tough day fishing, testing everyone to their limits to work out how to get a bite, but the boys did us proud by winning the match with 199lb 15oz to City Social 118lb 14oz.
This gave Team Rammy the win by 81lb 1oz, which meant that we retain the trophy for another year by an overall weight of 66lb 11oz. Well done to Gary and his team of 10.
And a special well done to Charlie, one of our three Junior musketeers representing the club, on winning the match overall with 48lb 3oz (this lad is one to watch out for in the future).
Thanks to Tom and the anglers from City Social for once again brilliant enjoyable inter-club. See you all again next year.
Lee (Match Secretary)
