13 members for this first one, in a force 7 to 8 Westerly no-one was daft enough to fish the Deganwy side but we all found some sheltered spots on the Conwy side.
The recent run of codling seems to be over after the fresh water coming down the river lately, so after a couple of hours trying it was time for the scratching tactics.
We thought flounders and rockling might give us a chance of weighing in but no-one expected little bootlace silver eels in January, but that`s what we got amongst the undersize flounders..
Dave Roberts found two in-size flounders and an eel to win with 0.87 kgs.
John Jones was second with an eel of 0.42 kgs. which took the heaviest fish prize, Mike Peters was 3rd with a flounder of 0.37. just ahead of my 3 little eels for 0.36.
Gary Bates and Barry Haigh tied for 5th with 0.32 each.
Top team were Gary and Barry on 65 points and the golden card rolls over to £268 after Mark Hill`s name was drawn.
