Bristol Docks Xmas Match

This match was a sell out, and there was another 20 on the waiting list, it shows the popularity of this event. Dave Clutterbuck who has run the event for donkies years does a really good job, only the best pegs are used, everybody has plenty of room, he doesnt try to cram everybody in, the prizes are excellent and that is why people keep coming back year after year.

The quality of the fishing depends on the weather, just as everywhere does at this time of year, the weather was wet, windy and cold yet the bream at welsh back still fed.

Top rod on the day was Keiran Kelly with 17lb 9oz of bream on the feeder, second was ex shop employee Paul, Im always on time, Isaccs with 16lb 14oz of roach and bream on the pole and feeder.
Third was Pete Sivell 16lb 10ozs of roach and skimmers, 4th was Dale Harvey with14lb 10oz of bream on the feeder and Ben, I used to be good, Franklin with 9lb 8oz of roach and skimmers
