This week saw Carp-R-Us kick of their new Murcia Cup series on the Rio Segura in Murcia Town Centre. At this time of year this venue can be very cold as most of it remains in shade all day. Added to this, the temperature when we met was only 2°c, warm clothing was needed!
The match itself was very strange. The pegs near the first road bridge and below produced fish, the further upstream you went, the harder the fishing. In fact, two of the upstream pegs sadly failed to produce a fish or even a bite.
Alan Smith won the match from the peg immediately up stream of the road bridge with an excellent 17.50kg caught fishing method feeder and wafter close to the far bank. Steve Fell was second with 9.93kg also fishing the method feeder close to the far bank but using double corn on the hook. Steve was near the bottom of the access slope.
Third was Jackie Breslin, also on the method feeder, with 7.92kg just upstream of Steve. Fourth was Terry Screen with a single carp for 1.95kg.
The club held its 2020/2021 Presentation Meal at Giovanni´s in Almoradí. Congratulations to all the winners and a huge thank you to Giovanni´s for an excellent meal.
