THE weather was kind to the eight keen fly fishermen who took part in a fun match at Jacklands Fishing Lakes in Tickenham.

THE weather was kind to the eight keen fly fishermen who took part in a fun match at Jacklands Fishing Lakes in Tickenham.

The target was five fish during the five hour match with prizes awarded according to weight.

Neil Oxford was the only one to achieve the bonus of a pound weight added if a fisherman caught all five fish within the first two hours.

Results: Bryan Taylor, 5.2kg; Neil Oxford, 5.04kg (incl bonus); Simon Mathews, 4.6kg.

All competitors went home with something in their bag and the day was voted a great success. A further match is planned for early 2011.
