Daves Dozen Bristol Docks 17/11/11

Thursday evenings match was another close run match, the extremely mild weather for the time of the year meant that the fish oblilged and eveybody had an enjoyable evenings sport. The gentle breeze, warm air temperature and gin clear water meant the roach and skimmers fed well.
