Sweepstake Old Nene March
WITH almost all the matches cancelled either because of thick ice or travel difficulties in the weather, a sweepstake was held at March with 18 anglers present.
The weights were very good given the extreme conditions, with Tim Dabrowa, now fishing for Fox Match Stanjay, the winner with 140 fish for 21lb 3oz from his peg above the slip way.
Mark One's Alex Bates was second with 17lb 11oz and John Taylor third with 14lb 5 1/2 oz. All the catches were on punch and next weekend's March Open should be a competitive match.
