Massive match catch on the Wye

The cold stint knocked sport at a number of venues during the latest round of matches across the country but it had an opposite effect on the River Wye with match winner Stu Harford recording a 71lb 4oz haul.

After drawing peg 96 between the two road bridges in Hereford, the Shakespeare Superteam rod decided to use the bolognese float with maggot to winkle out small chub at regular intervals.

Cardiff Nomads man Larry Slater took 34lb 8oz for second while Hadrian Whittle took the final slot in the frame with 32lb 4oz
