[23 Jan 2018 | Comments Off on Winter League Match Results Round 7 | ]

Winter league round 7 today. We had quite a few missing that couldn’t make it for various reasons but we stuck to the sections and had 3 on Heron and 4 on Fir Tree. It was very close on Fir Tree, but Alex Bradley smashed the heron lake section from one of his favorite pegs, here are the results:

Heron lake 
1st Alex Bradley peg 9 69lb 10oz 
2nd Adrian Holland peg 5 25lb 10oz

Fir Tree 
1st Tony Jose peg 2 26lb 
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 12 25lb 8oz

Well done Alex and Tony on winning your sections and thanks to everyone who braved the weather.
Sorry no pictures this week as I wasn’t there today but a big thank you to Roger Baker for running the match.
Next Sunday there will be an open match, if you would like to fish please let me know.

We had 7 fishing in today’s open and as I suspected it was rock hard! I pegged the far bank on heron lake to keep everyone out of the cold north easterly that blew all day but not sure if this was the best idea as we all struggled for bites, except for Mike Bennets, who was the run away winner. It was close between eveyone else, Here are the results:

1st Mike Bennets peg 16 34lb 5oz 
2nd Roger Rachel Baker peg 12 9lb 1oz 
3rd Neil Hodder peg 20 8lb 8oz

Mike fished corn shallow at 13m towards the island for his catch, well done on the win Mike and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday is a winter league match.

[15 Jan 2018 | Comments Off on Match Result Sunday 31st December | ]

Today’s open was fished on Heron lake and with the strong wind forecast for the afternoon we pegged everyone on 1 bank so they had the wind over their heads. Fish were topping all round the lake at the start so I was hoping it would fish well. Roger Baker started quickly having 3 decent fish on the bomb in 3 put ins…..I think his new style of casting that Paul Glanville taught him has paid off!😉 Nice to see Lee Dark on the bankside again, bit more practise needed mate!! I was pleased how it fished today, Here are the results:

1st Tony Jose peg 3 52lb 
2nd Roger Rachel Baker peg 7 46lb 3oz 
3rd Paul Glanville peg 5 31lb 3oz

Well done Tony on the win and thanks to everyone who came, I appreciate everyone’s support through out the year, match anglers and pleasure anglers alike and would like to wish everybody a happy and healthy 2018 and hope to see you soon.

Our next match is an open on Sunday 7th January all welcome.

[15 Jan 2018 | Comments Off on Christmas Match Results | ]

Wednesday 27th December we had our Christmas match. We had a decent turnout despite the really strong wind but coupled with a day and half of cold rain, bites were hard to come by. I pegged both lakes with 5 on Fir Tree and 6 on Heron, it definately came down to pulling a peg out of the bag that had some shelter from the wind. I was lucky enough to draw peg 7 on Heron which isn’t usually a go to peg but it had some shelter. Paul Glanville drew 8 on Fir Tree and done well from the left hand margin. Only 10oz separated 2nd to 5th on Heron, so it was close. We paid top 2 on Fir Tree, top 3 on Heron and everyone went home with a prize, to include a bottle of JD, cases of beer, bottles of wine and boxes of chocolates. here are the results:

Heron lake
1st Neil Hodder peg 7 20lb 8oz
2nd John Maundrill peg 5 11lb 10oz 
3rd Martin Newstead peg 9 11lb 7oz

Fir Tree 
1st Paul Glanville peg 8 24lb 3oz 
2nd Craig Parkes peg 15 9lb 14oz

Well done Paul on winning your lake and thanks to everyone who came and braved the weather, I hope you enjoyed the day.
We have an open this Sunday (New years eve) and there is space if you would like to fish.
