Fished the Charity Match at Pitsford yesterday and much to my surprise, I came first, second was my boat partner Ian Mitchell.

The fishing was very very hard and of the 15 boats only a total of around 40lbs was caught. I had 11.25lbs for 5 fish and Ian had 10.5lbs for 6 fish.

Amongst those fishing were Bob Church and other well-known faces.

Greyboy buzzers, black & yellow partridge spiders and magnet flies were the winning patterns – all size 14.

Fame at last !!!
