The latest match in the over 50s series was held at Wedgehill on Thursday 27th May.

There was keen anticipation before the match as carp swum lazily around the middle lake basking in the warm sun. Surprisingly, few were willing to feed and were perhaps thinking about spawning. We always need an excuse when not catching much!

Dave White (26lb) drew the unfancied dam area to win with a modest catch, followed by Mike Gotobed (23lb 4oz) that include a fit bream that leapt a couple of time before being landed. The dual for 3rd ended in a draw (17lb) between Alan Snook and Keith Rawlings with Alan later discovering a small unweighed roach still in his silverfish net, oops! Keith kindly donated a set of digital scales for our use in future matches.

Members on the top lake and not in the match failed to catch any carp, but enjoyed the fine weather. Our next Over-50s event is on the roadside bank at Hucklesbrook on 10th June, pending the water re-opening in time (11am draw, fishing noon to 5pm).

Please book in through Dave White (07719654103) or Jon Bass (01305 852585) by Tues 8th June.
