As in the first round of the Courier Cup , Ramsey Angling club were forced to change venues, with Point West deemed unfishable and the fifteen anglers moved to the Grand Island part of the Vollan. With a small tide and a strong side on wind, it was always on the cards for a quiet four hours fishing. Winner of the last round, Andrew Dugdale, showed intent with five dogfish and a first cast flounder for a clear win ahead of a four dogfish catch for Steve Quilliam, Quilliam’s consolation was a double pool win for the heaviest doggie pool carried over from the previous round. Mark Quirk landed three dogfish for third, while John Senogles took the heaviest other pool with a flounder of 1lb 7ozs, one of three he caught with a dogfish for fourth. Four anglers shared fifth with double doggies, while another three landed a single dog. On a day when distance casting paid off, Ian Ashcroft put himself at a disadvantage by forgetting the basics of fishing by turning up without his rods and tripod, a week to early to collect the “special” award on offer during this week’s angling festival.
