Not the big weights the fishery is used to, but with the absence of big carp all anglers had lots of bites from the smaller fish.

Pete drew peg 17 on the point and fished pole and corn over pellet he didn’t have a bite for the first half of the match but in the last half he had 11 carp – 3lb and the only big carp of the day a mirror going just over 8lb enough for 1st place, topping his winnings up by £100 for drawing the golden peg. In 2nd Dave also fished pole and corn he had a mixed net of carp and skimmers – 2lb and roach – 1lb

Next weeks Draw is at 9am at the cabin £14 all in To book a peg ring the fishery on 07721316334
