Following the excellent catches at Wedgehill in our first match it was back down to earth at Holtwood with most struggling to catch small roach, rudd, perch and a few tench. At least a dozen small chub were taken in Bascombes Pool (middle pond). Tench and crucians were hard to catch in Millers Pool on a hot sunny day. Kieth Baker won with 9lb 9oz from peg 21 on Bascombes and John Clayton took best weight on Millers Pool with 7lb 5oz mainly tench. The Series remains wide open with four tieing in first place. Thanks to Chairman Russell for the recent grass-cutting. Note revised earlier draw times of 11am for all remaining matches. It’s back to Wedgehill on Thurs 3rd August and our Veterans (Over-65) Match will be at Holtwood on Wed 9th August. If you’d like to fish, please book in with Jon Bass (01305 852585 – evenings).
Our first Over-60s match of the year was held at Wedgehill. Twelve members attended and caught over 250lb of fish from the middle lake. In wet and windy conditions Dave White sat twiddling his thumbs for two hours before the carp arrived at the far end of the lake. He then took full advantage to finish an easy winner with 69lb 11oz using method feeder.
Dave Perkins (41lb 1oz) was second and Jon Bass (27lb 2oz) third, again on method feeder.
The next Over-60s match is at Holtwood on Thursday 6th July. If you’d like to fish and have not booked in yet, please contact Jon Bass on 01305 852585 (evenings).
