Railway Lake – 27th August 2017

Kevin Lawson with one of the carp which helped him win this week

Round 24 was at Railway on the Barford complex. With 13 members turning out the bowl would be in and that’s where you don’t want to be. With clear blue sky and no wind it was going to be a hard day we were thinking. And hard it was for some. Venue expert Kevin Lawson came first with a narrow 12oz win this week. Kevin fished peg 6 (all our pegs) and weighed 20lb 12oz. 2nd goes to last weeks winner, Mark Charlwood who fished peg 8 for 20lb dead . And third was Dave Paynter. Dave fished peg 2 and weighed 19lb 2oz. So a big well done to them. The 4 who fished in the bowl had a real struggle all day 2 didn’t weigh and the other 2 only had just over 20lb between them. It was a day to forget.

1st Kevin Lawson 20lb 12oz

2nd Mark Charlwood 20lb

3rd Dave Paynter 19lb 2oz

4th John Higgingson 12lb 14oz

As you can see from the weights it was very hard today. Let’s hope next week is much better at The Old Stables.

See you all there.

The camera shy Mr Charlwood in 1st place this week

Round 23 comes from Park Farm Fishery. 12 members turn out this week. This was a new watt for all except Mr Dossena who used to own the place so all the pressure was on him.

Well done Mark (and I got a photo of him this week). 2nd place goes to Ash Dennington. Ash fished peg 5 and weighed 37lb 12oz well done. 3rd place was Dave Pay Tony Wilkinson, Tony fished peg 3 and weighed 34lb 4oz which was 1oz more than Dave Agass who had 34lb 3oz unlucky Dave but at least you got a pound from me.

Barford Match Lake, Sunday 25th June 2017

Kevin Lawson makes it 2 wins on the spin at Barford Match Lake

Round 15 today took us back to Barford. There was a change from Railway to the Match lake. Once again there was a very poor turn out with only 10 members making this one. It’s funny how some people complain to the committee about not being able to fish in the summer. There’s was 20 empty pegs today and last week at Railway so clearly these members are not really worried about fishing!!!. Moan over, Back to this week and once again it was Kevin Lawson who ran out the winner to make it 2 on the spin. Kevin fished the far side bank and caught steadily all day and weighed 82lb 4oz well done lucky Toad. 2nd this moving up one place was Mark Charlwood. Mark fished one peg down from Kevin and weighed 78lb 12oz. I think the fish which got out of his landing net could’ve been the winning fish but we will never know, well done Mark. 3rd this week goes to Trevor Dodson. Trevor fished the car park side and weighed a very good 72lb 9oz. Well done Trevor.

1st Kevin Lawson 82lb 4oz

2nd Mark Charlwood 78lb 12oz

3rd Trevor Dodson 72lb 9oz

4th Mike Dossena 68lb 8oz

5th Mark Harmer 55lb 4oz

6th Dave Agass 50lb 6oz
