ANGLING: Wright’s bags comfortable win

Have your say

JAMES Wright took the spoils at Holbeach and District Angling Club’s Alp and Stokers match.

His 9lbs 6oz net of roach at the Main Drain, taken on big red maggot, was enough to seal first place by quite a distance.

Fishing on the peg next to Wright, Bob Claxton was second with 5lbs 14ozs of roach.

He was just ahead of third-placed John Ivatt, who managed 5lbs 7oz.

The pairs winners were James Wright and Crip Wright.
