Round 21 of the summer was held at Reepham Fishery. This week was also the ladies match. There was 19 members today 3 of which were ladies. The lake had produced some tremendous weights in midweek so everybody was expected a good days fishing, how wrong we were! Mike Dossena drew peg 35 on the long lake which was end peg and ran out the winner with a good catch of carp and weighed 98lb 2oz well done Mike. 2nd was Matt Rowntree, Matt fished peg 12 which isn’t always that good one but he still managed 90lb dead ( that’s what happens when you put a good angler on a bad peg). 3rd place goes to the ever consistent Mark Charlwood. Mark fished peg 9 and weighed a very good 84lb 2oz.The 3 ladies struggled as much as the men all three caught fish. The winner was Val Burlton who fished peg 25 and weighed 38lb 4oz. 2nd was Judy Ford who fished 14 and weighed 21lb 3oz and 3rd was Chris Dearman, she weighed 1lb 13oz it was a very hard day for all.

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

Dave Edgerton this weeks winner with 70lb+

Round 12 today took us to the Old Stables North Walsham. 14 members again for this one which was a full house. With the forecast looking good everyone was keen to start. Dave Edgerton stole the show this week from peg 14 in the corner. Dave caught some small carp early on, but later moved to the edge and caught better carp for the rest of the Match(they don’t call him the edge for nothing). Dave weighed a very good 70lb 12oz well done Dave. 2nd this week was Mark Charlwood who improved from last weeks torture. Mark caught shallow for most of the day and finished with 63lb 8 oz from peg 15. 3rd place was the lucky Kevin Lawson. That’s 3 frames in a row. Kevin fished peg 6 which is normally the peg you don’t want so well done to him. Kevin caught steadily all day and weighed 49lb 12oz. Would just like to mention that Dave Agass got very close today to getting his first pound from me this summer but I had a late run of fish to just pip him again.
