This years WSF Summer League got underway with an early start on what was a glorious Summers morning at Perch Rock. The weather was fantastic with clear blue skies and bright sunshine from as early as 06:00 in the morning. This saw 23 anglers keen to open their account and get some points on the board early on. As ever with the Summer League format your best 7 scores from the 10 matches count so a good start is always helpful if you want to challenge for the overall title.

Again it was really pleasing to see some new faces join the ranks as well as plenty of old regulars back for another bash at the Summer League title. Everyone got booked on and we all made our way out onto the beach for the 07:30 start.........................


All in came and we were underway with a few people straight into a steady stream of fish for the first hour the majority of which were Whiting. This saw plenty of people start to tick their cards over and there were a few other species taken as well. Rich Parker and Ste Atkinson found Dogfish however these were few and far between as were Plaice which were the bonus species for this match. There were also a couple of nice Flounder taken by Stu Davies and Roy Schofield and it was Roy along with Dave Radcliffe and Nigel Conlon who were the early pacesetters in terms of building a decent length on their cards.

After the first hour the sport died down considerably and in particular in the middle and right hand parts of the stretch where the bites dried up completely. There fish were definitely present in better numbers to the left where Roy, Dave and Nigel all continued to find fish as the sun cracked the flags as we passed half way.....................


As we approached low water conditions looked absolutely perfect for a Ray or two but again it was not to be as not one single Thornie showed the entire match. So it was to come down to the wire between Roy Schofield and Dave Radcliffe who were neck and neck until the final cast when Roy managed to find the bonus species with a Plaice worth double length which allowed him to leapfrog Dave Radcliffe and take the opening day win.

We now move on to Talacre and the long walk in search of Smooth Hound for Round 2.

Looking at the differnce between those who caught and those who didnt must of made it a frustrating day for some. Wierd how it can fish so differently in a space of a couple of hundred yards.

Great morning to be fishing, enjoyed meeting up with everybody again after a break from Winter to Summer, well done Roy on the win, it’s going to be a good this summer with many interesting matches to come. Thanks Adam for organising the day, it was also good to have a shout out on Talk Sports fishing programme 6-7am on Sunday morning before the match started. See you all again in round 2.
