Over-60s Match Series
It is the second of our series of over-60s matches this Thursday (16th). This will now be fished at Horton Lakes, with a zone at the car park end set aside for the match, rather than at Holtwood as originally advertised. Please book in beforehand with Mick (01202 248681 – evenings). Details of the remaining matches appear on the Events calendar.
Our first match in the Series was at Wedgehill (Thursday 6th June). Thirteen members attended and all were pegged on the middle lake. It was a calm and mainly sunny afternoon and the fish slow to respond. Weights were reasonable though some struggled to catch. The match was split into two sections. Dave White taking 32lb 4oz of carp close to lilies on the left bank and comfortably winning ‘A’ section, with Dave Perkins on 27lb 14oz (despite losing a few at the net). Martin Mancey won ‘B’ section with 28lb 4oz mainly taken in the first two hours. Thanks to Mick Maidment for arranging the pegs, the draw and working out the results. Full details attached below.
Veterans (over-65) Match – Wednesday 19th August
The Veterans match (scheduled for Holtwood) has also been switched to Horton Lakes (see description/directions in ‘Our Waters’). The draw will be at 11am with fishing from noon until 4pm, followed by a meal or snack at the nearby Drusillas Inn (about half a mile towards Horton). Lets see more of you that qualify entering this year. The fishing is reported as good for roach, bream and rudd, not just carp! Please book in between 4th-12th August with Jon Bass (01305 852585 – evenings).
We currently have a vacancy on the Committee for a Match Secretary. Anyone wanting to offer their services to enhancing the match section within the club would be more than welcome.
