Newton edges out Barker at Holbeach match
Holbeach and District Angling Club held its latest match at the Orchard section of the Main Holland on Sunday.
There had been a lot of rain in the week and temperatures had dropped so anglers were not sure what to expect.
It turned out to be a good day, however, with Chris Newton taking top spot with 8lb 1/2 oz of good stamp roach and skimmers caught on pinkie on a 9m pole line from peg four.
Second, only half an ounce behind, was Matt Barker with 8lb, from peg nine.
In third place was Andy Wilson with 6lb 2oz from pegthree.
