Twilight Match 19th June 2012

The Twilight series moved on to the Hambridge Canal for the third round, here the weighst are smaller and it is a loser contest. Fished mostly on the pole, these are the results:

Martin Pallett 1-12-0 

Ashley Blunt 1-9-0

Linda Pallett 1-2-0

Dave Smith 0-2-0

No other weights were recorded. The next round is 26th June on Willows.

Ladies & Juniors 23rd June 2012

The first in the series of four was a dour affair, with the lake fishing poorly and the weather not good. Despite that seven brave juniors turned up and stuck it out for two and a half hours. No ladies were fishing. The trophies will now be fished for on the last match instead of the 30th June when the lake may fish better. The results were:

T. Pallett 2lb 2oz

O. Pallett 1lb 2oz

J. Forkin 10oz

M. Marshall 6oz

Club Championship 17th June 2012

The Newbury AA Club Championship got under way at Willows on 17th June. This is where the competition is serious! Fished by a decent field of 18 anglers, it was likely to be a close match, eventually the top three getting over 30lb each, but then nobody else got near them. Interesting several small carp showed, which could indicate fish are breeding. The top weights were:

Ashley Blunt with 8 fish for 39lb 5oz out of peg 48 on method feeder and pellet waggler

Adrian Ager with 5 fish for 31lb 8oz from peg 42 on method feeder

Dave Chandler with 4 fish for 30lb dead from peg 38 on method feeder

Steve Myers 8-12-0

Henry Sadler 7-11-0

Dave Smith 3-10-0

Brian Cripps 2-15-0 on peg 21
