Reepham – Sunday 5th May 2019

Mark S makes it 3 in a row at Reepham

16 members turned up this week to see if we could stop Mark Seaman making it three on the trot (but we all failed). With the weather cold wet and a little windy the fishing was always going to be difficult.

Mark Seaman drew peg 34 and made no mistake in winning again with 78lb 4oz.

Alex Watson was in second only 5lb behind Mark with 73lb 13oz from peg 27 ( the flyer). Once again it was Mark Charlwood in third with 49lb 6oz from peg 20. Well done to all them three!

Mark C and Chris must not forget their spectacles next time as they both muddled up and fished from the wrong pegs.? Most others had an OK day’s fishing .

Lucky Trevor Dodson was the run away winner this week. Trevor caught fish from the off and steadily through the day, and weighed a very good 52lb 12oz which was a very good weight on a very hard day. Jon Burton was on the next peg and weighed 28lb 8oz for the second place. 3rd for a second week running was Mr consistent Mark Charlwood.

Summer Series 2019

Old Stables – Sunday 17th March 2019

Mark Harmer wins at first summer match at Old Stables – Didn’t he do that last year?!

So here we go again. The Stalham AC summer series. Round 1 was at The Old Stables, North Walsham. 13 hopefuls turn out for the opening match. Reports from the match on Wednesday were not good so expectations were a little low. With quite strong wind and a few showers forecast it was time to see who would pull the winning number out of the bag. Mark Harmer drew peg 7 out, and caught small carp and roach for the first half, but then he decided to have a look under the willow tree which has been void of fish all winter. But to his surprise they were there and he caught steadily till the end to finish in first place with 42lb 8oz. 2nd place goes to Tony Wilkinson from peg 12. Tony caught 21lb 12oz which was good considering he had the strong wind blowing straight in his face. Well done Tony. Mark Charlwood and Dave Paynter were joint 3rd. Both weighing 18lb 8oz. Overall it fished well, considering the conditions, and it was much better than last year. Hopefully next week the conditions will be much better- we will see.
1st Mark Harmer 42lb 8oz
2nd Tony Wilkinson 21lb 2oz
3= Dave Paynter 18lb 8oz & Mark Charlwood 18lb 8oz
