Risby Lakes, Folly, 22 pegs

Saturday 21st January’06, Negas AC Winter League, (round 7)     
The latest round of the Negas league saw the lads fishing on The Folly in decent weather conditions which resulted in some good weights being recorded. Neil Thompson drew peg 20 and didn’t fancy his chances, but he decided to fish the bomb with maggot and had a nice net of carp for his winning weight of 42-08. Dave Smith took 2nd place from another unfancied draw which was peg 33. Dave had a few fish on maggot but had a better stamp of carp on 3mm pellet on the pole at 14.5 metres to finish with 37-00. In 3rd place was Steve Pulford with 35-01 off peg 24. When asked what he’d caught on, Steve is alleged to have said that he was loose feeding wheat and using Brazil Nuts on the hook! Steve used pole & waggler and had a lot of small carp for his efforts.

Risby Lakes, Folly, 20 pegs

Sunday 22nd January’06, RAFA AC Match,

This match saw a very tight affair and the final outcome was in doubt until everyone had weighed in. Ken Swyer had done just enough to secure 1st place by fishing the pole and waggler with maggot and corn on the hook to take mainly carp for his winning weight of 37-03.  2nd place went to Mark Hill who was only a pound adrift with 36-04 off peg 10, Mark fished similar tactics and was unlucky not to nick 1st place.

Result : 1st K. Swyer, 37-03.  2nd M. Hill, 36-04.  3rd P. Smith, (peg 23), 28-15.  4th P. Evington, (peg 12), 28-04. 



Form guide.. 25.1.06.  Risby Lakes, near Walkington

Folly.. The Folly has been a bit better this week although last weekends match results are unlikely to be equalled! Pleasure anglers have caught well during the week with maggot on the waggler being a favoured method, but more and more anglers are finding that fishing the pole at 13 – 14.5 metres will also produce good weights. Some youngsters fishing pegs 2 – 5 last weekend had quite a few carp a piece, so decent sport is possible from anywhere. Hot pegs are still 25 – 30 or 18 to 13.

Tench.. The pond has been a bit better this week with maggot on the waggler being the best method. Pegs between 13 – 17 and 22 – 28 have been the most consistent with tench, stockies, ide, skimmers and even a few chub showing. If the weather settles down a bit corn will also produce decent sport. Be prepared for the odd big carp to low double figure to turn up when you least expect them to!

Carp.. The carp pond has fished well again this week with some quality carp falling to maggot and corn. Roach are also showing well and provide plenty of bites throughout the day. During the week pleasure anglers have made the most of the milder temperatures with plenty of carp being caught. Decent sport can be had from anywhere, the best method has been the pole over various lines with maggot on the deck feeding little and often.

Orchard.. sport has improved this week with plenty of stockies feeding well throughout the pond. Red and white maggots have been the best baits and pleasure nets have approached 30lbs.

Keepnets are allowed, The café is open for breakfasts, but times vary during the week.
