Pete Lewis wins match at The Jam Factory Sunday 16 February 2020


Ten brave or foolish EJAS club members took part in the Sunday Club Match held on Ash Pool at The Jam Factory. Conditions were appalling as storm Dennis continued throughout the day. There were occasional bouts of calm weather and periodically it ceased raining.

The winner of the contest was Pete Lewis weighing in a very creditable 58lb 5oz of carp on Peg 3. Pete's catch was taken on the pole fishing sweet corn.

Second place was claimed by Frank Wallace weighing in 23lb 4oz of carp and silver fish on Peg 5. Franks catch was taken on the pole using maggot and worm.

Third place was secured by Chris Taylor weighing in five carp for 21lb 12oz on Peg 4. Chris's fish were caught on the long pole on pellet.

Section winners were Steve Dobbs weighing in one carp on Peg 2 for 3lb 12oz and Phil Simnett weighing in 20lb 11oz of carp caught on bread.

Thanks to Mark Court for organising the contest and his efforts to negate Storm Dennis's impact on the participants.
