Horton wakes up at last

At the end of a disappointing series of knock ups over the last 3 months, Horton Grange has started to produce some quality fish.  Tommy Smith caught 7 quality roach for 2lb 6oz and Brendan Heslop caught a smaller stamp of fish for 1lb 8oz.  Even Keith Melnyk got in on the act with a 4½oz skimmer.  The secret is not to fish too far out.  Maggot is all you need.  Brendan stayed on after yesterdays match and pulled in a couple of decent roach from peg 39 at 5 metres out.
