ANGLING: Fisher edges memorial after a tight tussle

COLIN Fisher edged to glory in an extremely tight Lynne Patricia Bailey memorial fishing match at Lake Ross on Sunday.

Geoff Ashton was just 1lb away from toppling Fisher, who came out on top with a net of 36lb 13oz of fish caught on the feeder and pole with luncheon meat as hook bait.

Settling for second was Ashton (35lb 13oz), with Sam Laker taking third with a solid 29lb 3oz

The event raised an impressive £670 for the Lincolnshire Air Ambulance.

Match organiser Phillip Bailey said: “I would like to thank sponsors Howard and Anna Tidswell and all the people who supplied prizes for the raffle to make this another successful event.”

• ANGLERS enjoyed fish galore at the Baytree Cup, with Ken Clark taking the spoils.

Clark won the Holbeach and District Angling Club event with a stamp of roach and skimmers for 8lb 9oz at Bell’s Bridge.

Fishing from peg two, all of his catch was taken on maggot hook bait.

Second – and strengthening his bid to be club champion – was Jonathan Stubley with 7lb 10oz of roach and skimmers.

Hot on his heels in third place was John Ivatt. His bag of 7lb consisted of roach and skimmers.

This Sunday Holbeach DAC contest the Curry Cup. Draw at Bell’s Bridge is 7.30am.
