The river Ouzel at Stoke Hammond looked idyllic for the return interclub match between LGCAA and Leighton Buzzard.  Sadly the first frost of winter, bright sunny skies, low water levels and only gentle flow combined to spoil the day. Leighton Buzzard opted to hold the match on sections C/D of the river which normally produce good bags of fish this time of year, but bites were at a premium with almost half of the field failing to catch.

Steve Mayes recorded his match win number five of this season with a modest winning return of just 10ozs. He used a pole rig to present a single maggot hook bait and was rewarded with five roach and a perch.

The host club provided the second placed angler; Don King with 7ozs of small roach & gudgeon tempted by flouro pinkies.

In joint third place were LGCAA anglers Kevin Farrow and Clive Robinson with 4ozs each.  Kevin found gudgeon, tiny roach and minnows using pinkie while Clive’s roach took bread punch in the last hour when the light began to fade.

Team weights:- LGCAA 1lbs 5.5ozs. Leighton Buzzard 0-10ozs

Both teams look forward to meeting again next season and if you wish to take part next season please contact LGCAA / Leighton Buzzard angling club for more information.
