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.
