Rutland Waters annual Fur & Feather bank competition took place last Sunday, December 8th.
A total of 46 anglers took part in this popular competition, with Bob Gooden coming out on top, landing five fish for 12lb 3oz. Bob, from the Peterborough area, fished the Normanton bank and used a floating line with a black lure.
During the match 60 fish were caught around the reservoir from the fishing lodge frontage, Normanton, Whitwell, then around the north side of the peninsula from the Finches all the way up to Armley Wood, Carrot Creek and Barn Hill Creek. Keith Jones took the biggest fish of the match – a 6lb 2oz rainbow. The top four rods each won a Christmas hamper plus pool money for their efforts, and everyone who fished the match took home a raffle prize.
