Ray of sunshine for angling club

Club secretary Ray Pickin was the toast of HUCKNALL ANGLERS in their third match of the new season.

Competing at Oak Tree Lakes Fishery at Brinsley, most members found fish easy to come by, although the winner of the opening two matches, Brian Ceross, struggled.

But Pickin topped the weights with 26lb, ahead of Arthur Daws and Dudley Young, who tied for second on 18lb 6oz.

The rest of the weights were: Chris Porter 18-1, Rob Daws 16-8, Dennis Hall 14-5, Gary Evans 13-2, Derek Brough 12-13, Alan Birch 12-13, Ernie Davis 11-10, Ken Shaw 7-3, Brad Livock 7-2, Dave Clarke 6-15, Brian Cross 5-14, Tom Bakewell 3-0. Six anglers did not weigh.

This Sunday’s fixture is at Woodend Farm, Huthwaite. Meet at the layby at 7 am for a draw at 8 am in the car park.
