North Devon Quay Sports AC Results

  Highhampton Lakes was this months venue, very warm day and carp beginning to think about spawning so very moody and playing hard to catch at times… well done today to everyone very good turn out for the group today.. more actual fish were caught today but few anglers did decided to tip back rather than weight so sheet shows alot of D.N.W. does give people more points in the long run amd push people up the final league table by doing so, would be nice to see everyone weight out on further matches please even if it’s just ounces as could give u position points.

Rogers 2nd placing was also a pole caught mixed net from peg 14 , The next 2 places came from shallower pegs 22 and 5.
