Anglers Optimistic about Form Improving


ANGLERS are optimistic about this weekend's sport as the finer weather is sure to see increased amounts of activity following the ice taking its grip on the region's fisheries.

Tees has already regained form with one experienced angler reporting 10 chub for about 30lb from Hartlepool and District AC's stretch near Neasham.

The ice was so thick at Sessay that Sunday's Open on The Oaks was cancelled, but one water which has still been yielding fish has been Carleton Hill Fishery, even though only seven of the 40 pegs were fishable last weekend due to the big freeze.

Yarm's Open on Sunday on the Tees saw Pete Rambow Jnr win with 13lb 13oz made up of chublets and dace and taken on a long rod and maggot combination. Derek Fox was runner-up with 7lb 8oz and Steve Alderson made third on 4lb 5oz.

One of the best pike this season has been caught by a ten-year-old.

Although the capture of the monster took place before Christmas a photo has appeared that confirms Owen Bryce, landed a terrific 33lb 12oz pike from Castle Loch in LochMaben.

The legendary "Mr Crabtree goes fishing," written by the late Bernard Venables, remains the largest selling fishing book of all time, and anyone who grew up on Mr Crabtree will know Peter, the son of Mr Crabtree in both the books and the long-running comic strip, created by the Daily Mirror. …
