Roy Jones Cup 2016

Roy Jones Trophy 2016

Congratulations to Chris Carter who was presented with the Cup he won last May at Carsington. On a very blustery day Chris won with 7 fish to his rod.

The 2016 trophy was fished for last Saturday 14th May at Stocks reservoir in the Trough of Boland. On an absolutely beautiful day 8 members fished for the Cup. Winning boat was boat 15 with 7 fish. Everybody caught fish which was pleasing. Some cold mornings had possibly put the fish down, because record bags were caught by members who were practising on Tuesday / Wednesday.

The winner of this year’s trophy was David Hild with 4 fish, followed by Dudley Hosfield with 3 fish – all these fish were taken in the afternoon. Chris Carter got 2 fish along with Brian Greengrass. Jim O’Brien, Simon Dowling and Chris Shepherd all caught.

The biggest fish of the day was a tremendous Brown Trout over 6lb for Mel Woods, winning him a bottle of the amber nectar.
