Not many turned up for this round, but numbers were swelled with a late surrogate partner entry for Monty Martin and they turned in a winning performance from a noted area. Monty led the team with a winning weight of 18lb 8ozs of tench, bream and small skimmers on caster over gb from peg 13. His partner, organizer Dave Johnson, chipped in with 10lb 4ozs of similar to waggler and bomb from peg 12, making a total combined weight of 28lb 12ozs for a clear win. Next best were favourites Team Etherington, who relied on dad Paul to provide the teams top weight with 13lb 7ozs of bream and tench from peg 16. Son Ethan managed just 10lb 3ozs so bragging rights where firmly with the older generation on the way home!
Monty Martin & Dave Johnson 28-12-0
Ethan & Paul Etherington 23-10-8
Jessica & David Carter 19-0-0
Ben & Marcus Gregoriades 11-1-8
The next match on June 1st has now been revised from Bramley to Richardson Lake, by popular request!
Please note that the Johnsons match on the 1st June has now been revised and switched to RICHARDSON Lake, under advisement from Fishery Management.
Normally prolific, the lake seemed to switch off for the five who turned out. Ben Gregoriades drew the boards past the car park and winkled out 15lb 5ozs of small carp to start his campaign. Last round winner Monty Martin kept up his good form with 11lb 13ozs of carp and bits for second place. Jessica Carter worked hard for her 6lb of bits, topped by a nice carp, for third.
A new ‘try before u buy’ recruit, Lotty Simmons, could be forgiven for slipping in part way thru as she’d been doing ok under dad Lee’s guidance, but the 8 year old found the soaking wellies too much to bear, so called it a day. Nevertheless, she still managed a respectable 3lb 11ozs and gained some valuable experience for when she comes back. Another new recruit, Tom Rollings, was a little limited with just a feeder rod, but managed to avoided the dreaded ‘blank’ on his first visit with a 2.5lb carp. He’s better for the experience and looks forward to coming again with a more comprehensive selection of tackle.
Our thanks go again to Lee Hazell and Haslemere club for the use of their super lake.
