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.

To prevent being charged you must ring the Club's mobile phone by the Wednesday before the event so that the organiser of the away day can contact the fishery with amended numbers of attendees!
