End of season bonanza

Mark Simmonds decided to finish the season fishing Tempsford Estate waters over the last three days. Mark divided his between the rivers Ouse and Ivel catching six chub, the best weighing 6lb 4oz. The big fish came from the Anchor Meadow stretch downstream of the former Anchor Hotel to the bridge over the A1 trunk road. Over the winter months, Mark has also caught chub of 5lb 12oz and 5lb 9oz fishing the Tempsford stretches of the Ouse.

For most other anglers, the end of the season has been a dire affair with low water temperatures, freezing nights and bright sunshine all contributing to making extremely difficult.

The club’s AGM will be held on Wednesday, the 20th of March, at Biggleswade Rugby Club so come along if you are able.
