Norfolk Angling Club Find It Tough At Kelling

by Dene Conway

Norfolk Angling Club LogoFirst match of the new season saw a great turnout with 20 anglers gracing the shore at Kelling, welcome to our new members, Colin Clifford, Simon Bottomley, Eddie Bowie and Peter Simmonds.

We all knew that tonight would be tough with calm conditions and clear water, so it was decided to fish to 18cm and also as with international matches allow mackerel t be caught on bait and pop ups only, with a maximum of three allowed. There is not a lot to say about the outcome of the match as the fishing was dire with 16 out of the 20 blanking, but it was a nice evening with some great banter and a chance to dust off the cobwebs of the last two months.

Top rod went to Neil Haynes who managed two eels in the gutter and one mackerel, for 1lb 13oz. Second place went to Leon Smith with one fish weighing 91/3oz, third place went to Colin Clifford on his debut match also finding a mackerel weighing 71/3oz. The only other to catch was Barry Iseton in fourth with a solitary dab weighing 6oz.

Heaviest and only flatfish was Barry’s dab and heaviest round fish went to Neil Haynes with a 37cm mackerel.
