Wet and windswept Ecton a struggle

More than 20 brave souls battled the elements on Day One of the PAC's first-ever access event on Ecton Lakes.

Members had the run of three gravel pits, a mile and a half of river and a weirpool on the Northamptonshire syndicate complex.

Four doubles and a dozen or so jacks were banked on a windy day when it rained solidly from the off.

Best of the bunch was a 13lbs 8oz pike to Andy MacDonnell, who also had an 11lbs 8oz, while Mart Batten and Steve Rudkin also had scraper doubles.
