Ice and easy does it at Damflask event
PAC events organiser Mick Crisp tonight paid tribute to the 30 hardy souls who braved Arctic conditions to raise £650 for Macmillan nurses, at Sunday's club event a Damflask Reservoir, in South Yorks.
"A temperature of -7 overnight meant that on arrival significant areas of Damflask were iced over making the task of catching any pike even harder," he said.
"Despite the conditions 30 anglers turned up to support the event. Ra88 and RA21/89 came en masse and boosted the numbers and also donated raffle prizes
"Only three fish were caught, the largest 8 lb. But with the support of all who came we managed to raise £650 for Macmillan, so thanks to everyone who came and either fished or helped out with the event."
The PAC thanks sponsors Yorkshire Water, Mark Houghton, Eric’s Angling, Chico’s Lures, Eagle Claw, Teesside and Darlington Region PAC, the Wisewood inn, Loxley; Pikemaster Traces, Craig Beverley, David Charlton and Brian Birdsall, along with stalwart Yorkshire organiser Pete Green.
