Results from Heat 5 of The Bellbrook Cup

Heat 5 of The Bellbrook Cup was attended by a very healthy 18 anglers and a fine days fishing it was too. The weather held and turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon with no wind - a rare treat for the time of year. The best effort came from regular Bellbrook angler Karl Baker of Exeter who managed 5 fish out of a maximum of 6 for a weight of 14lb 9oz. Perhaps not the biggest bag for Belllbrook but as the competition is based on numbers of fish this puts Karl in an excellent position for a place in the final.  Pushing Karl but coming 2nd was Richard Cooper from Ilmington who also managed 5 fish but with a total weight of 13lb 12oz. 

One of the interesting factors in this day's fishing was the wide range of successful tactics employed to catch fish. We had anglers catching on a sinking line with a Cats Whisker, Daddy's on the surface, buzzers just beneath the surface and nymphs fished on the drop off a floating line. Something for everyone:)
