Juniors: 2nd Round of Autumn Series won by newcomer

Sunday 18th August saw the 2nd Round of the Lymm AC Juniors Autumn Series taking place on New Pool. We had 8 anglers in the match, new comers Jack Stansfield and Elliott Mavers joined the regulars. Recently we changed the rules to limit the matches to one bait which will change every event and this week it was HEMP Week. Anglers were allowed to use half a pint of any other bait plus as much hemp as they wish to use. So for many it was which bait they would add to the hemp. Most of the match was split between caster and sweetcorn.

The match started well for Jack Stansfield pegged in the right hand corner of New Pool and few small skimmers took his corn bait for an early lead. Sarah Taylor pegged next to Jack was fishing just off the island and hooked a carp which proceeded to take off around the back of the island, in the struggle sections of Sarah’s pole came loose and took off with the carp, luckily both were rescued shortly afterwards. Elliott Mavers was quiet getting on with netting lots of small roach on his caster hook bait but could not find any larger residents.

Back to the fishing and a small battle was happening between Connor Higham and Callum McCormack pegged next to each other between the islands, both were catching well throughout. Connor fishing with caster found his fish to be smaller than Callum’s who chose corn. Alex Warham and Kyle Hickman were pegged to the right of the pool and benefited from the hair cut the lake had received over the last few weeks. Alex was quick to net a small carp after two hours of fishing and Kyle left it to the dying seconds to hook a small carp which on light elastic took just under 10 minutes to land.

The next match will take place on the 1st September on Spring Pool.
