Dave Brown had a go on the lures and managed a few bass what did amaze him were two hounds swimming round his feet in a couple of foot of water!

Fleetwood and District Angling Club fished their latest match at the Miner’s Home, this was the four fish challenge, but the great British weather made it a challenge to catch any fish.

The fresh north westerly wind caused quite rough conditions , compounded by the amount of weed that kept floating past.

Only nine of the twenty-one anglers caught fish. Only two anglers caught more than a single species.
