Mark Birbeck wins at the Jam Factory


This week we Nomads fished our own small match on the Old pool at the Lower Broadheath fisheries AKA The Jam Factory. 

Phil, Andy, Robin, Rob and Doug and invited angler Jason Powell fished the Old pool. Having the whole pool enabled us all to have plenty of room to fish due the current Coronavirus outbreak rather than fishing a larger attended Open match. We kept our small gathering distant from each other at the draw. but unfortunately the fishing was terrible with everyone struggling to catch fish and those with maggots caught. But it was good to be out in the fresh air away from other people. Mark won the match employing waggler tactics to catch some Roach and boosted this weight with 4 or 5 Carp to weigh in 21lb. Rob was 2nd with 4 carp weighing in at 19lb 4oz and 3rd was Jason, making his debut on the Old pool catching Roach and a few Carp for 16lb 7oz.It was the tough day for all but that’s whys its called fishing and not catching!!
