A BUSY Sunday in the Lymm Angling Club calendar saw the first of the adult matches of the spring series which was held at Milton Brook near Chester.
First place went to John Osborne with 8lbs 14ozs 0drs, second place was secured by Mark Davies with 8-3-0 and third place was taken by Jimmy Byrne with a combined weight of 7-15-0.
The successful opening day of the junior section series was held at Woodside Pool and in attendance was fishing tutor and multiple Kamasan match champion Andy May.
The events are organised by qualified ADB coaching staff and cater for the complete novice as well as keen young match anglers.
The next junior event is on Sunday, April 29.
Philip Kurdziej had an exciting trip to Serpentine Pool on the Belmont Estate with a rare double hook up of carp in wet conditions.
A quick-thinking member on the next peg came to Philip’s rescue and helped him to land both fish of around 16lbs. Philip went on to land four carp in the short session.
New member Gary Rodgerson’s choice of venue was Spring Pool for a day session. He landed two golden tench of 5lbs and six carp in the 4 to 6lb weight range.
Roach and skimmer bream also came throughout the day and tactics were light waggler float fishing with red maggots.
New junior member Adam Roberts joined dad Graeme for a 24-hour session on Micklewright’s Flash and got three tench between them.
Adam landed his first ever tench which weighed in at 3-2-0, with another at 3lb following, while Graeme finished off the session with a personal best at 4-2-0, all falling to a method feeder and popped up corn.
The recently opened Holford Pools are off to a flying start with new member David Cornes having a great day on Pinetops and landing a credible 13 bream ranging from 6ozs to just over 6lbs.
This weekend there will be a tench competition on Lymmvale in aid of Help for Heroes.
The format will be similar to last year’s event; the contest will be over 24 hours, kicking off on Saturday morning and will finish no later than noon on Sunday.
All places are taken now for this year’s event but members are all welcome to pop down to contribute to the charity pot as these events are great social meetings as well as offering some exciting competition.
