Wherwell Qualifier, Saturday 4th February 2012.
Under new management, entrants to the SFF Wherwell qualifier arrived to find that the temperature reading was minus 10!! The River Keeper duly arrived to open up and found the gas regulators frozen for the cooker and heating gas frozen solid – Oh Joy.
Briefing completed, the anglers headed off briskly (not sure if this was enthusiasm or just a means to get warm!).
The morning session was traditionally slow – with the exception of Howard Croston, who led the way with 23 fish, including the biggest fish of the day at 46cm.
The afternoon was more prolific, Richard Wood in first place with 25 fish and two other anglers catching over twenty each.
Total fish landed for the morning session was 54, the afternoon being even more productive with 93 landed.
