Badshot Lea v Farnham on Sun 16th July 2017
Forty One fished this inter club match at Badshot Lea big pond on a cloudy humid day. Ged Cooper on the end peg on the railway bank broke the lake record banking 94lb of Bream and Tench on the method feeder. Bryce Kearney took second from peg 9 with 81lb of bream also on the method and grounbait feeders beating John Wilkins on peg 12 who had 68lb. For full league dtails see League tables page. I have also uploaded pictures of catches on the day by Godalming members but sadly the winning weight was not photographed.
Record match weight on River Wey at Broadford Bridge
Henry Golas fishing peg 13 in the first field below the road bridge broke the Broadford match record with a fabulous weight of 43.13.0. The catch consisted of seven pounds of Roach and Dace then Seven Bream for 36lb including two over 6lb. (sadly no pic taken). Henry balled it at the start with three "jaffas" of groundbait and mole hill soil and caught from the start with an early Bream with the main shoal moving in after two hours. When things went quiet he cupped the remainder of his groundbait and had two more Bream near the end. All were caught on the pole with maggot or pinkie. The catch was all the more remarkable given the very warm day with unbroken sunshine and caught through the middle of the day which goes to show how little we really know about the fish we seek to catch. Well done Henry
