This Sunday we decided on a trip to Moorlands Farm to fish the Open over island, Moors and Bank pools.
27 anglers fished the match. Robin, Mark and Phil drew on the Bank pool. Fishing was tough early on but Mark produced an excellent finish to win the pool weighing in 54lb including 22lb of Silvers. This ended up overall 4th in the match and Mark also took the Nomad super pool. Phil and Robin caught fish but it was a struggle for them. Andy and Rob drew on the Moors pool and Stu drew the island pool but they also struggled for bites but still caught fish.
