Smoothhound Challenge day two

After a slow start the hounds turned up today with us managing to boat 35. Marks 18lber the biggest of the day so far, but having won yesterday’s prize Mark is ineligible for today’s, thus Neil with his 14lb 4oz smoothie takes top spot leading into this evenings session.  Lovely evening session today with a further 15 hounds to the boat. A good few doubles, with in form Mark Dolben taking the largest once again at 16lb.

Smoothhound Challenge day one

46 smoothhounds landed on the first day sail of our Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge. Plenty of hounds around the 8lb mark and a few into double figures. Mark Dolben taking the lead with 15lb 4oz. Fingers crossed the remainder of the week  It was harder work in the evening with only 7 hounds landed but double the amount dropped.  Strong north winds not helping our cause. Handful of doubles landed 11 to 12lb  More photos in our 2018 Challenge Gallery

As can be seen from the photograph, the blank worked lovely, a superb action with well […]

After lifting My Way from the water last weekend, she was surveyed and declared a Total Constructive Loss, it saddened me […]
