An early 3 degree frost which made the grass white gave us a bad start for our first visit to Rook Hall for a number of weeks.

Several perch to 3lb  3ozs were caught. Alan Wilson had the best fish prize.

Our next match is  Heybridge  Basin on the 2nd October. Should be a good one.

We will be increasing our £3 winning fund to £3.50 that is a 50p increase for a best fish prize which will add a bit of excitement to our home matches.
