For Round 3 of the Snowbee Top Rod we were at Hawkridge Reservoir on the edge of the Quantock Hills in Somerset.
Weather on arrival was wet, light WNW winds and looking at the inlet into the reservoir the water was clouding up very quickly due to overnight heavy rain.
Despite the conditions, very wet underfoot, 10 anglers made the trip and had a successful day, we all finished early and back on the road by 1500.
10 anglers caught 48 fish for a bag weight of 103LBS 1.5OZ
Average catch was 4.8 and average weight was 2.14LBS
There were 9 bag limits of 5 fish.
Best fish of the day was 2lbs 8oz, caught by Alec Hoare and Darren Penfold.
Thanks to Jake Belgium (Wessex Water Ranger) for the day.
