Round 9 saw 13 of us arrive at a very windy Perch Rock for the penultimate round of this years Summer League. The wind was howling down the river and this saw us all getting into suits and waders double quickly. Pictures were done in relative shelter of the car park. Here are the runners and riders who lined up today.................

First up was Roy Schofield...................

Image

Followed by Rob Turner.......................

Image

Stu Davies was looking forward to a less tackle heavy match after his escapades in Holyhead last week.................

Image

Jordan Roberts was ready to go..................

Image

Steve Duffy was back in the ranks on home soil.................

Image

Paul Argent was also back after missing the last one................

Image

Dave Roberts was next up....................

Image

Jeff White was also back after missing the last one.............

Image

Dale Edwards was calmness personified..................

Image

Graeme Stuart was next man up.................

Image

Dave Radcliffe was next up.................

Image

Dylan Kensall made it with seconds to spare.............

Image

We made our way out onto the beach and got set up and ready to go. The wind was blowing straight down river which would make casting difficult but undeterred 13 baited rigs went skywards and we got underway...................

First cast saw me take a double shot of Plaice and Dogfish whilst further up the beach Roy Schofield was into Dabs early on too. The fishing was slow for many with only the odd fish coming onto the beach.

I was managing to keep a fairly constant stream of fish going in the form of Dogfish including a double shot and one that was worthy of weighing at bang on 3lb on the scales.

Thornback Ray's were the bonus species for this match and it was 90 minutes in before one finally showed. Dave Radcliffe was the man to take it and give himself the double length.......................

Image

A few people now had fish on their card with Dave Roberts and Stu Davies also chasing down Roy Schofield and myself as we passed halfway as the tide reached low water.

Stu Davies then got a cracking bite which saw his Airspeed hoop over. A good fight followed and the end result was this cracking 8lb 2oz Ray which measured 53cm.....................

Image

I decided to put a bigger fish bait out to see if I could find one myself as I could see Roy Schofield further up the beach still ticking his card over. I didn't have to wait long for a good bite of my own and I bent into what felt like a decent fish straight away. It didn't feel like a Ray as I could feel its head shaking all the way in. As it broke the surface Dave Roberts shouted Huss! It was a good one too at 9lb 8oz and measured 94cm.................

Image

A few more Dabs and Dogfish were caught and that was that. All in came just in time as the flood was now in full force and holding bottom was difficult.

We now go to the final Round in three weeks time at Kingslake Road.

The overall standings and Leaderboard will be updated tomorrow.
