Tight lines!

THE carp were in an indifferent mood on the second Barby Banks evening contest but, just like last week, two ton-up catches headed the frame.

First place this time went to Mark Griffiths with a fantastic 126lb 8oz catch in just three hours.

Mark caught most of his fish late on with maggot and worm over groundbait and included carp to 8lb plus a bonus 2lb barbel.

Second spot went to Jon Arthur (Pole Fishing) with a level 109lb.

The matches are on every Wednesday evening and cost just £12 to enter.

Draw at 5.30pm in the Marshes car park with fishing from 6.15pm to 9.15pm.

Result: 1st Mark Griffiths 126-8-9; 2nd Jon Arthur 109-0-0; 3rd Tom Scholey 54-14-0; 4th Ian Haynes 50-14-0.
