Juniors – Round 5 Spring Series

Today, Sunday 19th May was the penultimate round of the Spring Series and eyes are being cast very closely at the league table. Today, was a lovely day around 18oC with a gentle breeze, a good day for fishing. Rain the week has brought the water level up a little to flood the Academy pegs but they are still fishable.

Six of our Academy youngster were asked to all the elements together from the Academy sessions to show the coaches that they were able to fish with a minimum of assistance, and I am glad to say they did not disappoint  Almost all of the children who took part before the sessions would not have been able to fish without an angler however, now they are able to bait their hooks, land and unhook fish and be able to find the fish even if the trickiest of lakes.

In the match the early fish fell to Richard Hadley who was catching small roach thick and fast.  For the rest sport was slow with a few fish showing shallow but after an hour the fish moved out and were hard to come by. Kyle and Callum sharing a double peg were also catching well and moved out an extra section and was catching them at 10-11m. Mainly feeding pellet and catching on maggot. Sarah Taylor began feeding a swim with larger pellet and fishing hard pellet and the hook, almost instantly paid off with a large skimmer. Next peg Alex Warham fished a small maggot feeder casting to the island however, failed to pay off getting good bites but not really resulting in fish. Over in the bottom corner new angler to the club Ronan was fishing a method feeder and getting skimmers.
