Reepham Fishery – Sunday 23rd September 2018

Mr Charlwood back to winning ways 30lb clear of the field from flyer peg 27 at Reepham

Round 27 comes from a very wet Reepham Fishery this week. Only 13 members turn out this week which was a surprise as this is one of the best places we fish. Never the less the brave souls who turned up were all hoping to get a few bites. Mark Charlwood drew the flyer peg 27 again this week and made no mistake taking first place. Mark had suffered the previous week but he well and truly made up for that this week. Mark weighed a very good 86lb 12oz on a very hard day. You can’t keep him down for long. 2nd place was Trevor Dodson. Trevor was fishing peg 13 and weighed a good 51lb ( not unlucky for him).3rd place goes to last weeks winner Mark Harmer. Mark fished peg 8 and weighed 49lb 11oz  (so I messed another good peg up ?￰). Most others caught a few carp but the weather just didn’t help today.

Holly Farm – 16th September 2018

Normal service resumed after last weeks hiccup

“The Harmer” back at No 1 spot this week at Holly Farm
Shhhh……Master Angler Concentrating Here….

Holly Farm South Walsham was the venue for round 26 of the summer series this week. 19 members made the trip which is a good turn out for this once prolific fishery. Could Mark Seaman make it 2 in a row? Or would Mark Harmer get back to winning ways? With the draw done and a sunny warm day forecast it was time for the all in. So it turned out it was Mark Harmer making a return to winning ways this week after his second place the previous week. Mark was fishing peg 4 and caught carp at 6 metres and down the edge for a total weight of 22lb 6oz not a great weight but this shows how poor the fishery is now. 2nd place goes to Dave Dearman who was just one fish from winning. Dave fished peg 6 and weighed 21lb 8oz. Mark Seaman has to settle for third place this week. Fishing peg 17 Mark weighed 17lb 8oz. And with only 4 more weights over 10lb tells it’s own story.

1st Mark Harmer 22lb 6oz

2nd Dave Dearman 21lb 8oz

Colton – Sunday 9th September 2018

Seaman Halts Harmer’s Winning Run

Mark Seaman wins by 4lb at Colton to end Mark Harmers great summer winning streak
Dave Agass and his 15lb 4oz carp at Colton

Round 25 of the summer series was at Barford’s “Beastie lake” – Colton. 17 members made the long drive this week which is a good turn out, and everyone doubly determined to stop Mr Harmer making it 8 in a row. With everybody ready and hoping they had all the fish in their peg it was time for the all in. Mark Seaman made a return this week after missing the last 2 weeks. He narrowly pipped Mark Harmer for first place this week. Mark caught across on the feeder and weighed 84lb. So, 2nd is an unfamiliar place for Mr Harmer this week especially when losing by just 4lb (just one more fish). Mark caught fish across on the feeder and on the pole at 9 metres for a weight of 80lb. 3rd place goes to the ever consistent Mark Charlwood ( you can’t keep him out of the frame). Mark caught fish down the edge at the end to weigh in 64lb 8oz. A big well done to the three of them. The Marks strike again (you just can’t win if you are not called Mark). Must just say that after last weeks dip Dave Agass had a better day landing the biggest carp of the day tipping the scales to over 15lb.

1st Mark Seaman 84lb
2nd Mark Harmer 80lb
3rd Mark Charlwood 64lb 8oz
4th Kevin Lawson 51lb
5th Dave Agass 48lb 4oz
6th Alex Watson 41lb 4oz
7th Dave Edgerton 34lb
8th Dave Gipson 32lb 10oz
9th Tony Wilkinson 32lb 8oz
10th Chris Tims 27lb 14oz
11th Jon Burton 21lb
12th Matt Jeffries 18lb 2oz
13th Dave Paynter 15lb 4oz
14th Andy Dicken 9lb 12oz
15th Terry Smith 9lb 8oz
And 2 D’N’W’s this week
On a whole it fished ok with most catching some fish.
Holly Farm is up next.
See you all there.

Bartles Lodge – Sunday 2nd September 2018

Who can stop Harmer?

Mark Harmer (yawn) wins again (getting boring) at Bartles Lodge this week continuing his great run of form.

Round 24 this week comes from the very pretty and prolific Bartles Lodge. 12 members made the journey this week. Very warm weather was forecast for this week which is very welcome. Having made the draw and everyone was ready to see if it would be their lucky week.once again it was Mark Harmer who came out on top again this week. Mark was on peg 10 and caught 56 carp tight down the edge for a winning weight of 133lb 10oz. So that’s now 7 on the trot. 2nd place was the ever consistent Mark Charlwood. Mark was on peg 1 and caught carp steadily all day for a total weight of 102lb 7oz. 3rd place was Dave Dearman.Dave was fishing the hot peg 4. Dave started the match like a man on a mission catching 2 fish before anyone else had put a bait in the water. But unfortunately for him the bits faded but he weighed a very good 76lb which made up for last week when he had to leave early.

Great white hunter searching for his top kit!
Must be here somewhere…….

Must just mention that Mr Agass had to take a dip at the end today to retrieve his number 4 and top kit which went for a swim. And yes he did get it back.
