Overstrand Results For Norfolk Angling Club

13 anglers arrived at Overstrand hoping that a possible codling may appear after reports of a few showing along the coast, if that failed then the usual whiting, dabs and flounders would be in abundance. A southerly wind and a mild evening with flat calm conditions what could possibly go wrong.

Pegging was from the zigzag groin to the left, by 6:30pm everyone was on their respective pegs and more or less ready to go. From the off fish were coming out, many undersized with a few finding sizeable fish and others struggling. We fished the last hour of the ebb and the first of the flood, the majority of better fish came on the flood, everyone managed to card at least one fish but the overall expectations were not what we expected, with the whiting fest not appearing.

Top rod on the night was again Peter Simmonds with nine fish from peg two for 3lb 91/3oz. Second place went to Paul Grothier with seven fish from peg 13 for 3lb 2oz, and final podium spot went to the ever consistent Russell Taylor with eight fish from peg three for 2lb 14oz.

Biggest flatfish of the night went to Roger Cunnington with a 30cm flounder and heaviest round went to Peter Simmonds with a 36cm whiting. All in all an enjoyable evening with some great banter before and after as always.
