Saturday 5th May
17 Individual competitors and 3 Teams entered the Seighford Lakes heat of this year’s Greys National Bank qualifiers.
Fishing was challenging due to a cold North Easterly, however a few fish were rising, and most anglers set out to target them. Terry Phillips and Dean Appleby got off to a great start by landing 2 fish each before their 3rd peg. Mike Dixon’s late morning charge saw him amongst the leaders at the half way stage.
Following a hearty Seighford lunch the anglers returned for the afternoon session. In contrast to the morning, the afternoon fished much better with fish more readily to take. Most pegs produced.
Best methods were dries & nymph fishing, although the Apps bloodworm proved to be the overall winner by adding a further 4 fish to Mike Dixon’s tally shortly after lunch. A great day was enjoyed by all and good luck to all those going through to the finals from Seighford Lakes.
