Andy Mitchell, 2nd placed at Hillviews Saturday Open


This week we Nomads fished on different days and venues again between the Hillview Opens on Saturday and Sunday and a Bears match at Hawford Bridge. 

Andy was the star performer this week. Andy, Phil and Robin fished the Open at Hillview on Saturday spread across the two main pools, Moorhen and Heron plus the 1st canal. They all drew on separate pools this time, Phil on Heron where he struggled. Robin on Moorhen which again was a struggle while Andy drew on canal 1. Andy won his section and was also 2nd overall in the match. Weighting in 39lb 0oz in a generally close finish were the winner caught 42lb, to take home Phil and Robins pound coins.

Sunday saw Phil and Robin back at Hillview for the Sunday Open. Hoping to catch some fish this time! The Open was spread over all four of the pools this time. Phil draw canal 4 (for the first time) and caught well catching 40lb 0oz while Robin had a poor draw on canal 2 where he caught 21lb. The match was won off the 4th canal end peg 95 with 60lb. Rob and Mark went back to Hawford Bridge to fish a Bears match on the Broomhill pool. Mark caught well again there winning the match with an excellent 116lb with Rob not to far behind in 2nd place with 94lb, exceptional weights considering its January and after a heavy overnight frost.
