Dave Brown [Maver] put together a mid week double top at Boldings Pools this week, starting on Wednesday when 59-5-0 from Ash peg 20 put him in the clear by over 19lbs. Maggot, fished at 6 metres and 12 metres put Dave in touch with carp in the 5lbs range.
Dave Doughty [Woodend] chose to fish pellet at Ash peg 5, working the bait 10 metres out from the peg, where he too found carp to 5lbs, which he used to build a runner up net of 45-0-0. Simon Richardson [Maver] was pegged on the Hawthorn Pool and took a pool best of 40-13-0 from peg 5 to finish in third overall. Back on the Ash Matt Stobbs [Oakengates Ang Cent] was fourth, just behind Richardson on39-12-0.
Brown led the way by a bigger margin on Thursday when the Sycamore and Willows Pools came into play. This time he worked with both maggot and bread punch, with both pole and leger tactics accounting for carp to 8lbs, which formed into a 79-2-0 winning total at peg 8 on the Sycamore.
Second went to Clive Wynn [Tricast Weston] at peg 33 on the Sycamore by courtesy of a 47-5-0 net of carp to 6lbs, which came to maggot at 8 metres. Only three ounces separated third and fourth, which both came from the Willows Pool. Terry Edwards [Swan Elite] sneaked into third by scaling 42-9-0 at peg 4, and Matt Stobbs had another 4th by weighing 42-6-0 at peg 19.
The cold wind on Saturday made for slower going and 35-7-0 from peg 32 on the Chestnut handed victory to Andy Price [Oak Ang Cent]. Carp to 4lbs made up the catch, which Andy took on maggot at 12 metres.
Just along the bank at peg 34, Bob Tromans [Fiery Holes] had bigger fish at shorter range, carp to 5lbs on maggot at 6 metres, but when the finish came he was one fish short on 32-10-0. It was the Sycamore Pool which gave third and fourth this time, with 30-6-0 from peg 13 giving third to Steve Owen [Monkhall], and 27-5-0 from peg 45 putting Ken Humphreys [Oswestry] into fourth.
The Boldings Fur & Feather on Sunday attracted a good turn out as usual, and saw a clear winner in Andy Sherwood [Bilston Ang Cent]. Maggot proved to be the best bait again, ensuring Andy took home the large Christmas hamper and the £130 cash prize. Peg 16 on the Beech Pool yielded carp to 5lbs on the 9 metre line, to give a return of 81-12-0.
Steve Owen moved up a place on the previous day, claiming the runner up prizes with a mix of carp to 6lbs and bream to 2lbs, caught on maggot at peg 8 on the Sycamore. The catch came maggot at 10 metres, and gave figures of 56-5-0. Clive Wynn was in the prize list again, his 47-6-0 from Sycamore 44 giving him third, while a level 40-0-0 from Beech peg 7 saw Keith Powell [PI Boldings] into fourth.
