A lovely day for this round at New Pool, it has been a warm week and fish have been moving round. The small fish that have been hiding for the last few weeks came out to play. With warm weather the Academy sessions were full and we had some younger participants coming to the drop in session.
Drop in sessions are in full swing. The drop in sessions are where people can borrow some equipment and go fishing.
Morning Academy sessions, plenty of fish being caught.
Afternoon Academy session star Callum had 5 fish.
We had a surprise visit from the local ice cream man!!
Thanks Mark for the ice creams.
Onto the match and eight anglers took part in the fourth round of Spring Series, with the warm weather the flyer peg was drawn by Sarah, this was the peg which produced 18lb last time Sarah fished it. The shoal of fish however, seem to have broken up which opened the match up to the other anglers, Alex caught an early tench and Callum was catching nice fish. Connor Higham was catching steadily with small roach and golden rudd.
Sarah Taylor’s match winning catch of 7lb 14oz
Richard Handley’s 3lb 1oz of small roach including one nice roach. All caught on his new pole!
Kyle Hickman was responsible for the most fish caught 6lb 6oz
Jack Ross also with a new pole had 1lb 2oz.
Callum McCormack sponsored by Frenzee caught some of the biggest fish including a nice Bream
Connor Higham caught 2lb 2oz of small fish
Alex Warham 2lb 4oz was good enough for 5th
Series results after 4 rounds. Anglers can drop their highest two results. The angler with the LOWEST points total at the end of series win. For a blank (where the person attends but does not catch) you get one point more than the angler with the lowest weight. If an anglers fails to attend a match they recieve the one more point that the number of anglers who have entered the series.
