The Romanian Catch and Release Angling Association had a great first day to kick off their winter league. The recent cool snap and high water at the venue meant that expectations were low – so low in fact, that only six club members turned up! Those that did got straight into the action though, with fish coming thick and fast throughout the day.

Adi Bus leads the league after the first leg with a top weight of over 17kg in what turned out to be a really mild and pleasant day to be on the banks. Codin Jurj came second on the day with 11.740kg and Ilie Pop took third with 6.370kg.

The club members reckon that it was one of the best days of winter fishing that they have had and a lesson learned for those no-shows who didn’t fancy it! Their next match will be on December 11th and hopefully a few more anglers will fish!

Please fish in a sustainable manner
