Away Day at Peatling "Lake C"
Fourteen members fished an Away Day Match arranged for
Peatling Fisheries "Lake C". It was a fine spring day and it felt good to feel a bit of warm sun after the recent
bitter cold weather.
Geoff Harper took the honours on the
day, drawn on the fancied peg 12 Geoff made no mistake and was catching from the off. Fishing the feeder over
toward the island trees he catching F1Carp at virtually one a chuck! Added to a bonus Mirror at around 8lb or so
and a few barbel on the Pole Geoff put 76lb on the scales to gain the win.
The runner-up spot went to next peg,
10, Steve Beckhurst. Steve elected for a more Pole based approach and after a slowish first couple of hours on the
Long Pole in the deeper water a switch to a line closer in proved to be a good move. A run of good sized
Barbel came in the next couple of hours to give him a weight of 52lb 4oz and second place. Malc Spring made a
welcome return after a recent illness and celebrated with 42lb 10oz from peg 18 to take third place .
Paul Cooke took Section 1 with 45lb
3oz from peg 7, with Section 2 going to Jason Farmery on peg 13 with 42lb.

Temporary Access at Kilworth
Terry Branston has asked me to inform all members that due to contract work at Kilworth Sticks
Fishery our access gate cannot be used. It has been locked by the Farmer.
As a temporary measure could all members wishing to fish at Kilworth please use the main
entrance. Drive between the buildings and the weigh-bridge. DO NOT DRIVE OVER THE WEIGH-BRIDGE. The Broome A.S.
padlock is on the double gate at the end of the works carpark.
The same number and rules apply, the gate MUST be locked after you have entered or exited.
We will inform Members, on the website, once the works have been completed.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
Carp in Smiggies
We would like members to know that 30, 3lb carp have been stocked in Smiggies Lake. This has been
done to try to help the water get a bit more natural colour and to, hopefully stir the Silver fish up a bit and get
them feeding. Also the carp will eat the Crayfish eggs, and help to keep the numbers lower. We have only stocked
the 30 as we want to see how things progress.
They are there for anglers to fish for but they must be returned to Smiggies. Please don't think
that these fish have escaped from another lake or been put in by someone breaking club rules. They are there
