Doug Smith wins on the canal at Blackpole


Jubilee members fished the Blackpole stretch of the Birmingham/Worcester canal last Sunday. On a very cold day only a few fish were caught with only two anglers catching over a pound of fish. 

However Doug Smith continued his excellent canal form with another win easily winning the match with 3lb 8oz. 2nd placed was Mark Birbeck on the next peg with 2lb 5oz. The rest of the field struggled for bites but John Swain and Alan Gardner were the best of the rest. Both wining their sections. John Swain 14oz and Alan Gardner 12oz.
