ANGLING: Jamie Rich strikes first blood in VES league
4:00pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Sport
ILMINSTER AA members fished their first match of the VES Precision-sponsored league on the Isle on Sunday.
The day started quite well although after three hours the rain came down heavily making for a miserable day for the anglers.
Lots of small fish were caught at Isle Brewers although the weights were fairly modest.
Some big chub were hooked and lost with one angler losing five.
Jamie Rich had the top weight on the day with 4lb 12oz of mainly roach and gudgeon from peg 124. Jamie caught on the pole and caster.
Robin Cox was second with 3lb 14oz from peg 128 and Steve Parker and Pete Lonton tied for third with 3lb 2oz.
This week is the second match of the Royal Oak league and the draw is at the pub between 8.30am and 9am.
Results: 1 Jamie Rich (Against Men and Fish) 4lb 12oz; 2 Robin Cox (Ilminster) 3lb 14oz; 3= Pete Lonton (Ilminster) and Steve Parker (Ilton) 3lb 2oz.
