Evesham Festival – 23rd/24th August 2008

Me and my mate Andy went to the Shakespeare festival in Evesham once again and it was excellent as ever. On the Saturday we watched the fishing for a bit before going to the pub and eventually getting to bed around 11:30. Tried Guinness Red for the first time, very nice.

Sunday saw us hungover and back by the river, watched Samantha Sim hook and land a barbel of 10lb 6oz which might have been a match winner but we didn’t stay until the end.

After dropping Andy off I popped out Dillington to watch the weigh in, Martin Heard won again and the league is his as he leads by 5 points with one match to go.

1 – Martin Heard (Tiverton) – 10lb
2 – Justin Charles (Ilminster) – 9lb 11oz
3 – Graham Field (Taunton) – 6lb 10oz
4 – Richard White (Ilminster) – 6lb 3oz
5 – Alvin Jones (Taunton) – 4lb 13oz

League after eight matches (dropping the worst result)

1 – Martin Heard – 12 points
2 – Jamie Rich – 17 points
3 – Graham Field – 19 points

It’s in the net! A cracking barbel of 10lb 6oz but was it enough for victory?
