ANGLING: Third Market Rasen League win for Humphreys


Thursday evening saw 14 Market Rasen Angling Club members make the draw for their final mid-week match, this being the 8th Leg in the Jackson Buildbase Summer Aggregate Shield League.

The all in was shouted and, to the surprise of the anglers, the fish in certain pegs that had been catching well struggled to produce for the length of the match, while other pegs did produce, but bites where hard to come by.

One angler, Dave Humphreys, found none of these problems from peg 25 and was catching fish of a good quality using the feeder to weigh in 7lb 9oz to win the match and record his third league win of the season.

Stuart Cash fished peg 29 and weighed in with 4lb 5oz for second spot also using the feeder, the final podium spot went to the ever consistent angler Mick Manning with 2lb 11oz from peg 18.

The league table is still close with Dave Appleyard on 55 points from Barry De’Ath with 52 points
