Ladies National Championship
Saturday 3rd October 2020, Marsh Farm, Milford. 19 fished.
This re-arranged fixture was fished on a dour Harris Lake at Marsh Farm in Milford. 2 days of heavy rain, which eventually stopped an hour into this match, turned this into a tough match for most. The lakes rudd and roach stock virtually switched off across the whole lake leaving most of the ladies to sit and wait for quality fish.
Charlotte Gore topped out with 8.325Kg of crucians and tench on the long pole from peg 3 to be crowned the Ladies National Champion 2020. Not too far behind was Samantha Sim who caught crucians also on the long pole at peg 17 for 7.075Kg and at the next peg 15 Kayleigh Smith caught crucians and tench for 6.250Kg.
The Angling Trust would like to thank Godalming AS for the use of the venue and Roger Howe and his team for helping out in running the match. Next years match is to be fished at Packington Somers on Saturday 17th July 2021.
