Gary Chandler reports on the last match of 2018 for Sheemore Anglers, fished on 30 December….

The last match of the year was fished on December 30th. The fish fed well for us, in fact the whole of December has fished well for the club. The total weight for December was over 1100 lbs of fish caught in the Sheemore matches so we would like to wish the club members and our facebook friends a happy new year and tight lines for 2019.

Gavin Brown had 35lb to win the Sheemore match fished on December 23rd.

Here are the results of the match:

  • Pat Tigwell 33lb
  • Micheal Fitzpatrick. 29lb 10oz
  • Robert howgate. 23lb 14oz
  • Gavin brown. 23lb 05oz

  • Joe van der spek. 18lb 10oz
  • Brian bohan. 18lb 04oz

We were back at the venue again on 2 January and once again good weights were recorded with Pat Tigwell taking the win again with 28lb 4oz and Joe Van Der Spek 2nd with 25lb 1oz.

So a couple of good days all round once again happy new year to all.
