The weather at the end of the Iris Boat Trophy on Sunday 29th June was a stark contrast to the beginning.
The 4 boats comprising 8 anglers set out in bright
sunshine with just a light Northerly breeze but returned in grey skies, rain and
much stronger winds.
Competitors tried various marks including the rand,
black rock, the wool pack, the gore channel and the weir bank but the fish were
simply not playing ball and the fishing was dire.
Most blanked, reporting
not even having had a bite! Junior twins Bradley and Lewis Perry-French both
boated a fish each but were undersize and returned.
The only fish weighed in
at the end was a Smoothhound of 2.76lbs for B. Morris which landed him all 12
points and the heavy fish pool.
It also moves him to top spot in the league
