Hicks Farm 2/10/21

Last match of the 2021 season for the Juniors, however sadly due to date clashes, we only had four in attendance.  This venue is always an exciting lake for the Juniors and even with the heavy rain and wind which lasted all day, everyone fished from start to finish and the results of the day were as follows

Marley Darch                                     56lb 5oz

Jasmine Wilkinson                             47lb 8oz

Hannah Dakin                                    21lb 1oz

Well done Marley for his maiden win!!

Windmill Lakes 11th September

It’s the penultimate match for the Juniors and as always, our six attendees were raring to go from the whistle.  Placements were a little tight on this Lake due to some very overgrown reeds on a few of the swims, but after a little manipulation these were good to go.  No large weights for this match although a couple of nice Carp made things interesting.  The results of the day were as follows: 

Fraya Dakin                                         9lb 6oz  inc 7lb 5oz Carp

Jasmine Wilkinson                             8lb 15oz inc 7lb 1oz Carp

Riley Joy                                            2lb 15oz

Marley Darch                                     2lb 14oz

Harry Moore                                      2lb 2oz

Hannah Dakin                                    1lb 9oz

A maiden win for Fraya, well done

Next match at this venue and we had 6 Juniors in attendance, all ready for the whistle.  Sadly still a lot of weed on the small lake but after some raking, they were all ready to go.  The results of the day were as follows with a strange ending joint 2nd place with exactly the same weight.

Dodds Farm 17th July

Next match of the season and the competition is heating up as well as the weather.  In this heat spell it was going to be a hard day in the heat however all of our Juniors in attendance were ready to face whatever the day brought along and even though by the end of the day they were completely wiped out everyone still had a great day’s fishing.  The end results were as follows

Thoby Wood 3 July

Next match of the season and we were meet with a very heavy haze over the water when we arrived and this took quite a few hours to lift and even with a little rain the humidity was high.  All of our five Juniors in attendance fishing throughout the match but it was hard going at all of the swims.  We sadly also had some faults with the photos at the weigh in which means that some photos have not been available for our report, however the results at the end of the day were as follows

Shalford Road Lakes 19th June 2021

The Third match of the season here and yet again the British weather was not playing fair, after over a week of beautiful sunshine and then after the thunderstorms, we were left with strange weather for a mid June Match.  With their wellies on the Juniors were all up for a competitive match and a march through the mud. They all fished continually throughout the whole match sharing both lakes and at the end of the match, the Bottom Lake turned out with slightly better results, the end weights were as follows

Hannah Dakin                                    15lb 10oz   inc 4lb 2oz carp

Parsonage Farm 5 June

The Second match of the season and we were pleased to be back at this lovely venue, which is always well looked after and ready for our 6 Juniors to start their match.  The sun was very hot all day, however a high temperature does not always work in our favour and together with plenty of evidence of the Tench swimming around, catching them was another matter with them being more interested in spawning than feeding so most of the fish caught for this match being Roach, Rudd and Perch.  The results of the match were as follows:

 Harry Moore                                         11lb 7oz    inc 4lb Tench

Riley Joy                                               9lb 6oz

Marley Darch                                        7lb 5oz

Fraya Dakin                                         7lb 2oz

Hannah Dakin                                      6lb 5oz

Jasmine Wilkinson                               5lb 8oz

Hicks Farm 15/5/2021

The first match of the new Season and we had six Junior’s attend, which is fantastic and is was lovely to see everyone after such a difficult time for all.  Sadly the weather played it’s part in proceedings with heavy rain to start off the match but thankfully this eased after about an hour and all Juniors pressed on to the whistle and they all enjoyed their first Match together.
