Charity tench fish-in to raise money for Help for Heroes

Lymm Angling Club are proud to announce a charity tench fish-in to raise money for Help the Heroes.

It follows on from the success of last year’s event, which was well supported by a number of leading tackle and bait companies who donated prizes and helped the event become a great success.

This year’s charity event will be held at Lymmvale on Saturday, April 21, and will finish no later than midday on April 22.

At the time of writing there are currently two places left, please contact us here for further information.

Other News………

Liam Roberts and his father Will had a good winter’s day fishing, catching some quality roach and perch at Farm Pool.

They were both fishing worm and maggot on the first pegs and had 18 roach and 18 perch between them, the biggest being a roach of around 1lb.

Dave Wynne had a morning chasing pike on Micklewrights and landed one at 7lbs 2oz 0drs.

Tactics were to search each swim, casting numerous times to try to tempt the pike out of its hiding ground, and the fish took a smelt from the bottom of the lake bed.

The pike are in very good condition – they are a nice pale colour, stocky and weigh a fair bit heavier than they look, so if you get one stick it on the scales.

Even though pike are the biggest, strongest, most aggressive fish you are likely to come across in our fisheries, they are most delicate and easily damaged, so please take care when handling.

With January’s catch returns, Founders Pool looks like the good option for winter carp anglers after 14 carp to 21-0-0 were caught in the new year.

The next winter series match will be held on February 12 at Milton Brook.

Also please note the climax to the winter series will be held on March 25 at Micklewright’s Pool.

This change is due because the club are competing in the Super Cup match on March 11.

Keep checking on the club’s website for any venue changes.
