2 Day Festival Result

This weekend was our 2 day festival and I think the weather had a big part to play. Saturday was very windy making presentation difficult for most, whilst Sunday was still, warm and sunny which definitely helped. Some decent weights were had both days, but the result of the weekend had to be Alex Bradley’s new lake record on Fir Tree of 79lb 2oz, who also fished a faultless 2 days. Here are the results:


Fir Tree
1st Christopher Symons peg 7 31lb 9oz
2nd Neil Hodder peg 10 21lb 12oz 
Heron lake 
1st Alex Bradley peg 2 74lb 1oz
2nd Adrian Holland peg 19 55lb 3oz


Fir Tree 
1st Alex Bradley peg 2 79lb 2oz
2nd Roger Baker 22lb 9oz
Heron lake
1st Neil Hodder peg 9 71lb 6oz
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 13 66lb 3oz

Overall results
1st Alex Bradley 2 points 154lb
2nd Neil Hodder 3 points 93lb 2oz
3rd Ricky Dennis 5 points 85lb 13oz

Pairs results 
1st Alex Bradley and Chris Symons 8 points 
2nd Roger Baker and Ricky Dennis 10 points

Well done Alex on the overall win and thanks to everyone who came. 
Our next match is an open this Wednesday, if you would like to fish please let me know. If not we will also have an open next Sunday.

Match Result Sunday 17th August

Today’s match was fished in bright sunshine today but after a week of cold wind and heavy showers all the carp wanted to do was bask in the sun. Weights were well down but well spread. Nigel Hicks drew the golden peg on his first visit, he didn’t manage the win but picked up a section win, so £21 rolls over to the next open. Here are the results:

1st Alex Bradley peg 1 46lb 3oz
2nd Roger Rachel Baker 44lb 6oz 
Section winners
Christopher Symons peg 5 38lb 1oz
Nigel Hicks peg 15 29lb 2oz

Alex started on 6mm pellet to the far bank and changed to corn through the match. Well done Alex on the win and thanks to everyone who came. 
Next weekend is our 2 dayer. If you would like to fish there are still a few places but you will need to book.

Match Results Sunday 10th September

We had 10 fishing the open today on heron lake so we paid top 2 overall and 2 section winners. Anglers were well spread and so were the weights. The Golden peg was reset so there was £10 in the pot and peg 1 was drawn, Adrian Holland drew it and fancied it, but when he got there and saw the wind blowing out of it I think he knew it wouldn’t produce today. Chris Symons is continuing to draw well by pulling inform peg 5 from the bag and he fished it well for another win, here are the results:

1st Christopher Symons peg 5 77lb 13oz 
2nd Paul Glanville peg 15 57lb 9oz

Section winners
Paul Dench peg 13 47lb 13oz
Mike Bennets peg 9 47lb 11oz

Chris caught mostly at 13m towards the island on 6mm fishery pellet, well done Chris on another win.

I was pleased with catching 44lb 6oz from peg 20, especially as I missed the first half of the match to watch my son play his first football match of the season which was well worth it as they won 8-1

Thanks to everyone who came today. Our next open will be next Sunday but not sure which lake yet.

Match Results 3rd September

Great little match today. Numbers were down due to the weather so the decision was made to have a rover, pairs match, winning pair takes all. The pairs were blind from the draw. 1 and 3 together which was Ricky Dennis on peg 3 and Tony Jose on 17 and 2 and 4 together which was Roger Baker on peg 1 and Neil Hodder on peg 5. It was a close match and everyone had good weights:

1st Neil Hodder peg 5 115lb 2oz
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 3 99lb 8oz 
3rd Tony Jose peg 17 68lb 7oz
4th Roger Baker peg 1 66lb 1oz

Total pairs weight:
Neil and Roger 182lb 
Ricky and Tony 167lb 1oz

Nice format lads made a change to do something different and thanks for coming on such a miserable day I hope the fishing made up for the weather!

Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron Lake, please book.

The Island on Heron Lake

The giant Gunnera leaves have started going over into the water so the island has had a good tidy up, making casting to the shallow shelf easier.

Match Result Sunday 27th August THE £100 BONUS HAS BEEN WON

Today’s match was a bit of a result for one person! We fished on heron lake and Peg 9 was drawn as the golden peg which stood at £75. Chris Symons stuck his hand in the draw bag first and no prizes for guessing what came out! We had 7 fishing today so the £100 bonus was also up for grabs. The hot, bright, still conditions were a real contrast from the wind and rain last Sunday, the fish weren’t settled and were mostly just cruising in the sun rather than feeding and Chris spent most of the day mugging fish on pellet, Here are the results:

1st Christopher Symons peg 9 102lb 1oz
2nd Adrian Holland peg 5 49lb 
3rd Roger Baker peg 1 46lb 5oz

Chris walked away with 1st place £45, golden peg pot £75 and the £100 bonus for a total of £220. Well done Chris, enjoy spending you winnings on IOS and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday’s open will be fished on heron lake and the golden peg pot will restart. We will be anouncing details of our new bonus pot soon so watch this space for details. If you would like to fish next Sunday’s open please book.

Match Result Sunday 20th August

Despite a wet and windy day we had 10 brave the weather and we fished on Fir Tree pond, but the going was tough. Presentation was difficult in the breezy, southerly wind and the rain all day didn’t help. On a plus note there was another £10 added to the golden peg pot which Roger Baker drew and he literally ran there, but the curse of the golden peg followed him and £68 rolls over to next Sunday. Sadly no photos today as my phone wouldn’t work in the wet, here are the results:

1st Neil Hodder peg 8 38lb
2nd Adrian Holland peg 7 29lb 8oz
3rd John Maundrill peg 15 26lb 3oz
Marc Barden won his section with a double default from peg 2 with 15lb

Thanks to everyone who came and for sitting through some rubbish summer weather. I think a new set of water proofs are top the list for one of my next, must buy’s. 
Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron lake, but please book. Also we still have space in our 2 day festival, 23rd and 24th September if you would like to fish please let me know.

Match Result Sunday 13th August

Mixed fortunes in today’s match on Heron lake. We had 12 fishing, so again we paid a top 2 overall and 2 section winners. The golden peg was 18 but wasn’t won so £58 roles over to next Sunday. Fishing was a bit patchy at the start except for Adrian Holland and Nigel Taylor who we’re both catching well from the off. The breeze that got up through the afternoon definitely played a part in how some pegs fished. Tony Jose had a section win from peg 20 even though he lost approximately 50lb in the lily pads, but managed to weigh in 38lb 10oz. Overall it fished well and of note was Andy Partridge’s net of silvers that weighed 43lb 2oz, here are the results:

1st Nigel Taylor peg 9 82lb 1oz
2nd Adrian Holland peg 16 77lb 11oz
3rd Andy Partridge peg 18 69lb 3oz (section winner)
4th Neil Hodder peg 5 51lb 12oz

Well done Nigel on the win and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday’s open will be on Fir Tree pond but you will need to book to fish.

Match Result Sunday 6th August

We had a good turn out for today’s match and we had a junior fishing with us today so he was given the honour of drawing the golden peg and 1 came out of the bag. When Adrian Holland drew inform peg 1 he literally ran to it! But with the recent changeable weather and the rain we’ve had lately fishing was difficult and the fish were not settled. Craig Parkes was very surprised with a section win on his first open match despite only weighing 19lb, this was due to the top 2 weights coming from his section, the moral of the story, always weigh in!! And Tony Jose got back to winning ways from peg 17. Here are the results:

1st Tony Jose peg 17 66lb 10oz 
2nd John Maundrill peg 15 43lb 
3rd Neil Hodder peg 5 40lb 4oz 
4th Mike O Gorman peg 3 34lb 13oz

Tony fished a top kit in the edge with 8mm pellets for most of his catch. Well done Tony and thanks to everyone who came. 
Our next open match will be next Sunday on Heron Lake.
