REPORT
MOLANDS   In terrific form through the week with a new fishery record set by Lee Richards who caught 176lb 1oz of F1’s on shallow pole and pellet from peg 2.  Up in the water tactics such as pellet waggler or long pole and pellet have been the dominating approach at the moment, feeding 6mm or 8mm pellet for carp to double figures and F1’s to 4lb.  Best pegs 2 – 8, 23 – 29, 41 – 47 and 58 – 60.

GEARYS    Gearys was a little up and down last week, one day fishing really well with match weights to over 100lb and the next fishing quite hard.  The carp started to spawn again at the weekend but not in huge numbers.  The best tactic has been long pole with meat or pellet fished over micros.  Straight lead and 8mm pellet are still working well, particularly in the shallow water at the far end.  Top pegs 6, 9, 15, 21, 23, 29, and 31 – 33.
LITTLE GEARYS    Fishing well with F1’s, skimmers and carp showing on all areas.  Lots of different tactics catching with paste down the margins, long pole and shallow pellet or method feeder to the island all accounting for decent nets.
GRATUITIES    In cracking form this week with lots of carp in the 2 – 3lb range.  There have been tench to 4lb, skimmers to 3lb and the odd lump carp into double figures being caught.  A small pellet feeder or method fished tight up to the island has been the best tactic with pole down the new margin also doing well.  Best pegs 1, 4, 7, 8, 11, 14 and 15.                                                                                                    
WILLOW    Lots of fish being caught up in the water with pole and pellet producing carp, tench and F1’s.  The bigger carp are showing tight into the margins with meat or paste working best for fish into double figures.
SIBLINGS   The tench have been going well through the week with fish to 5lb coming out on corn or meat fished really close to any overhanging features or reed beds.  Mixed nets are also coming to expander pellet, caster or maggot.
ANNIVERSARIES   Lots of fish being caught with mixed nets of skimmers, tench, roach, rudd and small carp coming to pole fished pellet or caster.  The point at the top end of the pool is best with pegs 1 – 9 fishing well.
