Asfordby and Melton Society of Anglers: Boxing Day bites prove elusive

Have your say

After a night of hard frost, hopes were not high for the Asfordby and Melton Society of Anglers’ annual Boxing Day match.

And so it proved with only three anglers weighing in. The clear winner was Danny Tarrat, on peg three, who managed to tempt five carp fishing with bread for 26lb 4oz.

Derek Jones took three carp on the feeder, all in the last hour from peg one, for second place with 14lb, and Paul Clifton was third with a single carp of 8lb, also on bread from peg five.
