UNEXPECTED CATCH: Not exactly what the Carp-R-Us anglers were after Photo credit: Carp-R-Us

CARP-R-US recently fished Round Five of their Autumn Series on the River Segura near the CV91 road bridge near Guardamar.

Water levels on this stretch remain quite low and during the match they dropped another 15 to 20 centimetres, which made fishing challenging but interesting.

Winner on the day, fishing one of the new downstream pegs, was Ken Wilcock with 6.08 kilos caught. Second was his travelling mate, Roy Buttress (3.53 kilos) while Tony Flett (2.48 kilos) came third, with Ann Fowles (1.55 kilos) in fourth place.


Catch of the day went to Jeremy Fardoe who had the biggest crab yet seen. It was a good 20 to 25 centimetres across and it should be remembered that the anglers were more than two kilometres from the sea.
