TONY Baron had a session with his mate on the River Dee at Shocklach.

Fishing float and red maggot, he had a few grayling, weighing up to a pound along with seven chub from 8ozs to 1lbs and of course the obliging trout put in an appearance.

His mate also had a similar catch but included chub to 2lbs.

Phil McKracken took his son for a visit to our Ackers Pit fishery and were not disappointed. His son landed a hard fighting 6lb 2oz mirror carp and a few quality roach which I’m sure he won’t forget in a hurry.

Kev Brindle’s choice of venue was Statham Pool. Fishing the waggler with red maggot, corn and pellet, he helped himself to a good bream, loads of roach and an eel.

Phil Brown tackled Rixton Claypits with corn and meat under a float rig close in and ended his session with 12 bream and two dozen roach. Phil fished his hook bait over a bed of Silver X and Exploding Fish ground bait.

Ken Hewitt chose the Kingsway stretch of the mighty Mersey and the conditions couldn’t have been much worse. Float fishing with maggots with the sun blazing on a low and clear river he managed nine roach before stopping for the day. Ken also tried the feeder approach but with no success.

This week’s Mersey match saw the return of some old faces to the river, and it was one of these that took the honours.

Rod Fraser put together a lovely net of fish from peg 22. Starting on the feeder, he managed a few skimmers in the first hour before switching to the pole. He added a mixture of silvers to pip Jim Gannon to top spot after Jim had lost a 2lb fish at the net.

Rod Fraser and A Brown were once again in the money but only as runners up in the Disabled and Over 60s match on the Bridgewater when Dean Loftus edged them out of top spot.

Fishing the end peg debutant Dean managed 6lbs 13ozs of roach up to 8ozs from opposite the Barn Owl pub. John Ashwin was also in the frame again following an early bream and back-up roach which gave him fourth.
