Lymmvale charity Tench fish-in a big success

All reports suggest that a good time was had by all and thank-you’s go out to Phil Hatton for organising and overseeing the event, Bill Last (and Grazy Roberts) for keeping every one fed(up) and of course, to all those who took part in the event itself.


The fishing wasn’t anything to write home about, but a few fish were caught and as can be seen in the attached pics (pics courtesy of Club President, John Prescott) various people were recipients of prizes at the end of the weekend, including:

Malcolm Hough for the biggest tench.

Steve Holland for the smallest tench.

Biggest fish prize (any species) went to full-time carp angler, Cliff Taylor.

Paul Fisk received the Presidents award.

Phil Hatton for most fish caught.

Ash ‘The Hoff’ Davidson for his duck rescue.

Well done guys, glad to hear everybody enjoyed themselves!

However, the biggest ‘thank you’ of all goes out to every single one of you that kindly donated to this years fish-in chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. As a result of your generosity, we are not far shy of our intended target of £2,000, a fantastic effort and each and every one of you can be justifiably proud of yourselves, thank you!


As well as the fish-in, we also had the ‘charity auction’ that ended on Friday night. I’m pleased to say that every ‘lot’ sold and this obviously helped swell the charity coffers, again thank you to all who placed bids. Can I just remind anyone that placed a ‘winning’ bid, that you need to get details on how to pay which you can do by sending an email to

If you have already paid – thank you!

About Grazy

I'm 40 something and rapidly approaching the big 50 but I'm also mad keen angler based in Liverpool. Rivers are my preferred mode of fishing but during the close season I can be found 'sulking' on a still water waiting for the magnificent Tench to take my bait and put a bend in the rod!!
