Mellor wins angling match at Croft

THERE was a clear victory for John Mellor in the latest Todmorden Angling Society match.

The evening competition was fished by 10 members of the society’s members on Croft.

Result: 1, John Mellor (25lb 4oz) carp using pole/meat on peg 11; 2, Pete Mottram (13lb 8oz) peg 16; 3, Paul Wilkinson (11lb 6oz) peg 15.

Next Tuesday’s match will also be fished on Croft.

It is the last match of the series - except the final which is on Bank Holiday Monday, August 29. The draw will be up to 1.45pm, fish 2.30pm to 7.30pm.

The next trophy match is on Sunday, on Town House. Ring to book on.

The recent heavy rain has affected catches on most waters over the last week or so.

Any senior still wanting to join Todmorden Angling Society may like to wait until September 1 when subscriptions reduce to £35 for remainder of the year.
