[25 Feb 2018 | Comments Off on Winter League Round 10 Results | ]

Today’s match was winter league round 10. We had 2 sections of 4 on Heron and Fir Tree. With the cold easterly blowing I pegged it so everyone had the wind off their backs. We had some deliberation before the draw over whether to use 11 or 13 on Heron, 11 was favoured and no one wanted to go in the bag until it came out, it was Adrian Holland home for the day, I think he fancied it for a few but the carp had other ideas! Alex Bradley drew sock on, for a change 😉 pulling in-form peg 19 on Heron from the bag where he had a decent weight from 2 weeks before. Fir Tree was very close with only 1lb 14oz separating the top 2, here are results:

Heron Section 
1st Alex Bradley peg 19 78lb 8oz 
2nd Christopher Symons peg 17 27lb 14oz

Fir Tree Section 
1st Tony Jose peg 9 36lb 14oz 
2nd Neil Hodder peg 10 35lb

Well done to Alex and Tony on winning your sections and thanks to everyone who braved the cold.

Next week we will be running an open where the golden peg pot stands at over £100, please book if you would like to fish.

Today was winter league round 8 and it was proper cold! 9 braved it with 5 on Heron and 4 on Fir Tree and there wasn’t many pegs that had any shelter from the cold Northly. After draining Heron last week for a stock take we had the stream water running all week to top it up so was expecting it to be really hard considering the conditions. Alex Bradley and Adrian Holland drew the pegs with some shelter and they both fished well, here are the results:

Heron lake 
1st Alex Bradley peg 19 66lb 15oz 
2nd Christopher Symons peg 5 38lb 7oz 
3rd Neil Hodder peg 15 35lb 7oz

Fir Tree 
1st Adrian Holland peg 12 33lb 6oz 
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 8 13lb 10oz

Well done Alex and Aide on winning your sections and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday is another winter league match.

We had 7 fishing today’s open on Fir Tree pond and all things considered it fished well. A cold north easterly blew all day and coupled with a night of cold rain everyone expected it to be rock hard, but I think most were pleasantly surprised. Roger Baker drew the golden peg, peg 12 and he came close to taking the £101 purse…..here are the results:

1st Adrian Holland peg 9 37lb 
2nd Roger Rachel Baker peg 12 32lb 12oz
3rd Neil Hodder peg 7 21lb

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

The next 3 matches are winter league matches and Fir Tree and Heron will both be used for these matches. Pleasure anglers can fish on Willow pond.

[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.

[4 Dec 2017 | Comments Off on Winter League Results Round 4 | ]

Yesterday was winter league round 4 and it never ceases to amaze me how Ricky Dennis and Alex Bradley always manage to draw spot on! Alex pulled peg 3 on Heron from the bag and Ricky had 15 on Fir Tree stuck to his hand, which coincidentally was what he wanted! Fish fed well on Heron with corn being the favoured bait whilst on Fir Tree it was hard with fish responding to dobbing tactics, here are the results:

Fir Tree Section 
1st Ricky Dennis peg 15 24lb 
2nd Roger Rachel Baker peg 7 17lb 6oz 
3rd Neil Hodder peg 9 13lb 14oz

Heron Lake Section 
1st Alex Bradley peg 3 54lb 14oz 
2nd Paul Glanville peg 17 34lb 15oz 
3rd Tony Jose peg 19 26lb 13oz

Well done Ricky and Alex on winning your sections and thanks to everyone who came. Next Sunday there will be an open on Heron lake. If you would like to fish please book.

[19 Nov 2017 | Comments Off on Winter League Round 3 Results | ]

Today was round 3 of our winter league, with 10 fishing we had 2 sections on both lakes, so anglers were well spread. Conditions were near perfect and with plenty of fish moving in the shallow water I was hoping it would fish well. I was happy with drawing peg 3 on Heron lake but thought it could be anyone’s match and with Ricky Dennis on his new home, peg 5 it was always going to be close! Alex Bradley drew well with peg 9 on Fir Tree coming out of the bag, which I think is a peg that is returning to it’s old winter form, here are the results:

Fir Tree Section 
1st Alex Bradley peg 9 35lb 12oz
2nd Jon Wykes peg 7 17lb
3rd Mike Bennets peg 3 12lb

Heron lake Section 
1st Neil Hodder peg 3 69lb 13oz 
2nd Ricky Dennis peg 5 64lb 5oz
3rd Roger Rachel Baker peg 15 49lb 9oz

Well done everyone and thanks for coming. Next Sunday there will be an open, lake to be confirmed.

Today was round 2 today of our winter league. We had a few missing which was a shame but Ricky Dennis made his return in style. He drew spot on which is no surprise and fished a good match for a section win. It was a breezy day, not to cold but I think it defiantly made a difference to where the fish wanted to be, especially on Fir tree pond, here are the results:

Fir Tree Section
1st Neil Hodder peg 12 26lb 14oz 
2nd Adrian Holland peg 15 23lb 9oz

Heron lake section 
1st Ricky Dennis peg 9 60lb 2oz 
2nd Roger Rachel Baker peg 5 46lb 4oz

Well done Ricky on winning your section and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday there will be open and will confirm which lake later in the week.
