20 fished . Tarka has again produced a fantastic match, dominated by in form Kevin who again drew peg 19 . His worm and groundbait approach on the short pole proved perfect. Nathan , despite lossing several carp, finished second using similar tactics on peg 16. Colin on peg 1 ended up third with a mainly carp net from the shallower peg. The drop in temperature and brisk westerly did little to stop fish from feeding , our next match is ,as always , the second Sunday of the month.

Cold North and East winds combined with high pressure seldom bring good results for sea anglers at this time of year. The wind is forecast to back to the South later in the month when sport should improve.

Lee Watts  said a massive thank you for the turn out Bideford & District Angling Club enjoyed on Sunday with 46 senior entry’s and 6 juniors. A very tough day for all competitors today with more wood in the river than fish. A massive well done to Taz and his mum cleaning up (lucky gits) and well done to both juniors for putting fish on the scales.

Our next open comp is the Christmas comp on the 11th Dec be great to see u all there!
