The 2019/2020 club championship series resumed after a break of almost four months at the AEC’s excellent Mill Pond fishery on Sunday. Glen Briggs scored his fourth win of the series with 62-9-0 of carp, F1’s and bream caught on the long pole and method feeder. League leader Mike Smith took the runner up spot with a level 42lbs of carp on the method, and close behind in third spot was club president Bob Lane with 46-8-0. The section winners were Graham Fox and Fred Fairman, and the specimen was won by Dave Mustoe with a carp of 12-12-0. In general, it was a tricky day with nineteen anglers on this compact twenty-two peg venue, but everyone had a few bites and it was great to see each other again after such a long break due to the COVID-19 situation. The club championship race is very close this year with Mike Smith now just two points ahead of Glen Briggs and just six ahead of Graham Fox. With just four rounds left and some tricky venues, its going to be very interesting.
