MATCH CANAL: David Dinnette put his angling knowledge to good effect catching 13 carp and 2 bream. The margins are fishing well for both carp and bream. The week’s tuition for beginners went really well with all the students catching, one of the students Ryan Culverhouse did well catching loads of fish and now has a personal best carp of 12lb 8oz. Bread is working well, particularly for the carp. Local matchman Peter Patmore had a really good day on the canal catching an estimated 100+ bag of carp and bream, the successful method was using paste on the top two of his pole.
