Fryston Angling Club members had to contend with wet conditions in Sunday’s match at Moorfields Farm Fishery, Goole.

The previous Friday’s match had a winning weight of over 120lbs but Saturday’s overnight rain was always going to made things a little harder.

By the end of the first hour it was apparent that bites were not only becoming harder to come by but in some pegs were non existent.

By the end of the five hour match, nine of the 19 strong turn out had nothing to put on the scales.

Ray Evans won with a paltry 34lb 12oz from peg nine.

Roy Copley clinched second place with 18lb 8oz from peg four. Gareth Gill put 13lb 12oz on the scales for third place from peg seven.

The day’s section winners where Paul Moran and Dave Banks with 13lb 5oz and 13lb respectively.

The silver peg winner was E Hirst on peg 30.

The golden peg was again not won and rolls over to next week.
