The Lymm AC Catch of the Month competition, sponsored by Viking Baits, received some great entries for August.
This big roach for Finlay Fletcher, from Belmont pool, was the best of the rest and was just pushed out of the winning place by this carp caught by Josh Holden. Josh is a new member and this was his first session on a Lymm water and after a few years catching the usual silvers on the local canal this was his first carp. Caught on floating crust and put up a great scrap on his little six foot float rod, his smile says it all 7lb 2oz and a memory for life.
Well done Josh, we’ll put you in touch with Mike at Viking Baits to collect your prize. http://www.vikingbaits.co.uk/Viking_Baits/Home.html
As for Septembers competition, plenty of nice carp were entered, with the best looking one here from forum user ‘Can’t catch em’.
Clearly he can!
But this month produce some belters for river regular and no stranger to landing the bigger specimens, Phil O’Callaghan.
1lb 7.5oz it weighed and it’s a good fish in anyone’s book, but that was well beaten by a new club record chub of 6lb 9oz. Top angling as usual Phil! I’ll give you Mike’s details to sort out your boilies. From personal experience, I can tell you the Viking Baits tigernut boilies are barbel magnets, so I would go for those!
Well done Phil!
