Kids & Dads Match

Broadwater Lake
September 2nd 2017


Six pairs entered this last Kids & Dads match of 2017, fished on the Rugby bank. It was a slow start for some but not the masters of the end peg draw! Marcus and Ben Gregoriades carried on from their successful 1st round in the Preston Junior League with another win from the top end of the Rugby bank. Having lost the first two fish within minutes of the off, it was Ben who banked the first fish, an 8lb plus common, which signaled the start of a runaway win. With Marcus and Ben each trading fish, it was dad Marcus who eventually won the numbers and weight game with 8 fish for 88lb 14ozs. Ben was just one fish behind, but his were smaller, the best only hitting 10lb. His total of 63lb 1oz, added to dads’ 88lb14ozs, gave them a clear win 151lb 15ozs.

Their closest rivals were the Hackman’s who managed a combined weight of 48lb 8ozs. Tye Hackman did have the satisfaction of taking the biggest fish prize, a lovely common of 17lb 6ozs. Third placed pair were the Casbon’s with 40lb 4ozs, courtesy of dad Ian, who banked 4 fish to 10lb 15ozs! Fourth place went to the Carter’s, with Jessica taking the silverfish prize but also adding a super 14lb 14oz mirror from down the edge on waggler and maggot.

Next match is on 23rd September at Bramley Lake. Don’t forget to bring your own keepnets and remember…it’s a points match!

Please book in no later than Thursday 21st September

Junior Match, Johnson's Lake
12th August 2017


With recent reports giving no encouragement, seven juniors turned out for what proved to be a disappointing match, confirming previous reports. With no quality fish present it was all small fish once more for the competitors.
For the second time in 3 years the winner was Jessica Carter and although the original tiny carp she caught in 2015 were absent, Jessica managed to catch lots of small rudd, roach and a 12oz perch for 3lb 3ozs.
Next best weight was Ben Gregoriades in the next peg who had a similar catch for 2lb 8ozs. Ben Barnett took a few better stamp roach and rudd for 2lb.

NOTE: Having spoken to all juniors present it was decided that the next Johnson’s match on October 7th would be switched to Lythe Hill, which produced some good weights in the July match.

Junior Match, Lythe Hill, Haslemere
29th July 2017


The latest round was fished at the Lythe Hill Lake, courtesy of the Haslemere club. Eight juniors attended on a day which promised reasonable weather. It became apparent that after some local knowledge from Frank Bevan, that Tye Hackman was using that knowledge to good affect by banking numerous carp to 6lb. Tye used his carping experience to ‘shovel-in’ some sloppy spod mix close to his left hand margin bush, which seemed to have the desired effect. Using small pieces of meat the corn, Tye ended the match with 57lb 14ozs and an easy win. 
Fishing only her second match this year, Jessica Carter started slowly on silvers before getting to grips with the lakes carp. Jessica used sweetcorn to weigh in 34lb 14ozs. Dan Casbon would probably have caught more had he managed to stop putting his rigs into the bankside vegetation!!! Nevertheless, he still managed to save the situation by taking fish to 7lb for third place, with 30lb 1oz. James Buckley opted for silvers and won the silverfish prize with 1lb 10oz.

12-15: Tye Hackman 57-14-0
