Windmill lakes 11th September

Last but one match of the season and the last of the Mixed pairs matches this year.  A similar problem as the Juniors fishing on this same lake with a few swims overgrown but again we fitted in around the lake.  The results of the day were as follows:

Straits Mill 14th August

We had four Ladies in attendance for this match and again like the Juniors some raking was required before the swims could be fished but once that was done we were good to go.  The results of the day were as follows 

Francesca                                              6lb 1oz

Wendy                                                   5lb 1oz

Parsonage Farm Mixed Pairs 21st July

We had four pairs attending this match, which was good to see. The British weather did not disappoint and was everything from bright sunshine to heavy rain.  Everyone enjoyed this great venue and the end results were as follows:

Dodds Farm Mixed Pairs Match 17th July

Kathy & Nick                                     15lb 14oz

Thoby Wood 3rd July Ladies Match

With our three Ladies in attendance sharing the lake with the Juniors, it did not seem to matter where they were, the heavy humidity meant that the catching was slow going for some and sadly none existent for another.  Sadly this meant that the end weights were low but still the day was enjoyed by all and the results were as follows

Wendy                                                 2lb 7oz

Alison                                                  1lb 3oz

Kathy                                                    0lb


Shalford Road Lakes Mixed Pairs Match 19th June 2021

Sharing this venue with the Junior match, we had the choice of swims on both lakes, however all three pairs choose to fish the Top Lake.  Sadly this meant that apart from one carp caught by Nick, all of the rest of the fish caught were Roach, Rudd and Perch.  The results of the match were as follows

Wendy & Alan                                   14lb 2oz

Kathy & Nick                                     12lb 1oz

Alison & Martin                                   8lb 10oz

Parsonage Farm - Ladies Match 5 June

This is always a good venue for our matches and we had four Ladies in attendance and the sun was shining, what more could you ask……well for the fish to be interested in feeding would be good, however they seemed to have other ideas, so the weights were lighter than previous years and the results of the match were as follows

Francesca                                            16lb 3oz

Wendy                                                 9lb 3oz

Alison                                                  6lb 0oz

Kathy                                                   5lb 4oz

Hicks Farm 15/5/2021

It was wonderful to see our Mixed Pairs today at the first match of the season.  We had 5 pairs in attendance which meant with the Junior match happening at the same time, we pretty much spread out all over this venue.  The weather played its part as usual but thankfully the rain stopped after about an hour and the sun came out for weigh in.  The results were as follows

Francesca & Nigel                            64lb 13oz

Kathy & Nick                                     45lb 1oz

Alison & Martin                                 44lb 8oz

Wendy & Alan                                   28lb 10oz

Stephanie & Dean                                 4lb 2oz
