Small perch dominated the winning catch returns in round 1 of this year’s pairs league at Knowle.
The venue traditionally produces a match dominated by small perch. However, this year the shoals were concentrated in a few small areas and were hard to find in numbers.
No Wasps Here of Steve Wilson and Derek Holmes ran out winners with 438cms after landing on the biggest shoal of the day. Team No Name of Vidar Thomassen and Alan Brown plundered the same shoal and found five ruffe to run in second with 363cm. Team Lure Tour of John Cheyne and Gary Palmer were third with an all-perch catch of 257cm.
Some decent zander also came to the net toppoed by a 61cm fish for Tomek Cichowska of Realistic Shad. Best perch went to Gyorgy Brachna with a 35cm fish.
And a final mention has to go to the capture of two gudgeon, one for Alan Brown and one for Piotr Sroka.
Thanks to the 15 teams that fished yesterday’s match.
