[14 Oct 2017 | Comments Off on 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:

Saturday

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

Sunday

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
Individual’s
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

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

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.

Today we had 2 matches running. The Culdrose lads were fishing on Heron lake and had a good day, with some decent weights had. We ran our open on Fir tree and it was a hard day. After 2 days of heavy rain the water was cooler and the fish were not settling. John “The Venue Expert” Maundrill was top weight, a relieved Roger Baker just squeaked a third by 4oz and Paul Glanville had the curse of the golden peg, again! Although weights were a bit down it was very close:

Fir tree pond 
1st John Maundrill peg 15 37lb 7oz 
2nd Tony Jose peg 8 25lb 12oz 
3rd Roger Baker peg 5 25lb 2oz 
4th Neil Hodder peg 12 24lb 14oz

Heron Lake 
1st Craig Parkes peg 17 65lb 5oz
2nd Tony Crocker peg 15 51lb 14oz 
3rd Kevin Waldon peg 11 47lb 10oz

Well done to John and Craig on winning your matches and thanks to everyone who came. 
Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron lake, we already have a few booked and there is £37 in the golden peg pot. If you would like to fish the next open please book.

We had a decent turnout for today’s match on Fir tree pond. Peg 14 was drawn as the golden peg. This was the second week of running the golden peg and on both occasions neither anglers have weighed……. so already we have £18 in the pot!!! 
I sat opposite an inform Chris Symons who caught steady all day, even though they were small fish. Nigel Taylor was sat behind me and although he had less fish he was having a better stamp and everyone thought he had won, which was why I didn’t take a picture of Chris, sorry mate. 1lb 11oz seperated the top 2 and only 4oz separated 3rd and 4th so a nice close match:

1st Christopher Symons peg 10 56lb 
2nd Nigel Taylor peg 2 54lb 3oz
3rd Adrian Holland peg 7 32lb 8oz

Well done Chris and thanks to everyone who came.

Next Sunday’s open will be on Heron lake. Don’t forget the £100 bonus is still up for grabs as well as the golden peg pot.

Today’s open was fished on Fir tree pond and with a few of the regulars away we had a walk off for a change. Adrian Holland drew 1 and went straight to peg 2 which of late has been an inform peg, but with a strong warm wind blowing over his head into peg 7 the better stamp of fish followed the wind where the venue expert had decided to sit. Here are the results:

1st John Maundrell peg 7 43lb 3oz
2nd Alex Bradley peg 9 33lb 14oz
3rd Adrian Holland peg 2 30lb 10oz

Well done John and thanks to everyone who came. Next Sundays open will be fished on Heron Lake

1st John Maundrill peg 2 51lb 3oz
