Here is the result of the first club championship match of the season on the Kennet at Speen Moors.  A very encouraging result from a river that has flattered to deceive for several seasons.   Lots of small fish roach and dace were caught.   Roach to 12ozs for some and the top weights each had a bonus fish either a bream or a perch.   Dave Chandler was on the Green Bank 2 pegs up from the bridge.   Dave Smith was on peg 30 on the main River with Brian Cripps on peg 7 and Roger Durnford on peg 41 on Parliament Draught. The weights were:

Dave Chandler 8-12-0; 

Dave Smith 6-14-0; 

Brian Cripps and Roger Durnford 6-4-0; 

Here is the result of the Over 60's match on Alders on 11 Jul.  A tight match for the minor places but with the hot weather the big Bream did not show.  The weights were:

Brian Cripps 9-12-0 5 nice Tench from peg 6; 

Bill Bowsher 3-11-0 peg 18 one bite one nice Tench; 

Henry Sadler 2-5-0; 

Here is the result of the Over 60s match on Knotts on 4 Jul.  A good turnout for a lake that we have not match fished for a couple of years.  Again the weather was not to the liking of the big fish and none were caught.  So the successful anglers were those that switched to target the bits and that at least provided some sport. The run down was:

Brian Pallett 4-8-0; 

Richard Wiggins 3-1-0; 

Bill Bowsher 2-8-0; 

Her is the result of the final Twilight match on Willows on 10 Jul.  After a tight series, Dave Chandler and Dave Smith have tied on points, both have 1 match win so the deciding factor is overall weight, so Mr Chandler wins.  The match weights were:

Dave Chandler 40-8-0 5 Carp peg 26; 

Jake Heaver 22-14-0 3 carp peg 42 1 Carp weighed 14-2-0; 

Roger Durnford 15-6-0; 

Here is the result of the opening Twilight match on Alders on 3 Jul 18.  Adam Durnford had 3 nice Tench from peg 16 and it took until 2050 with the weather cooling down for both Roger and Dave to get a reasonable bite.   Roger's was a bream and Dave's a nice tench. Not much to report with only 4 fishing to indicate the way our lakes are fishing in this hot weather.  The weigh in was:

Adam Durnford 7-10-0; 

Roger Durnford 2-15-0; 

Dave Smith 2-10-0;

and Dave Chandler 0-4-0.
