Away Day at Peatling Lake "A"
Eleven members booked in for an pre Christmas Away Day match at Peatling
Pools. Lake "A" was the chosen venue. It seems as if the fish are shoaling up with three of the four prizes going
to three consecutive pegs.
Paul Cooke finishing well in front on peg 4 with 62lb 6oz. Over on the next
peg Mark Akiens weighed in with 38lb 8oz to take the runner-up spot from peg 6.
Next peg along, peg 8, provided the Section 1 winner with Den Porter
netting 34lb 12oz. Phil Dayman taking Section 2 from peg 35 with 36lb 7oz.
Away Day at Peatling Lake
There were fifteen members on Peatling Pools lake "D" for the latest Away day match. And
boy...what a struggle!!! This is a prolific fishery that usually produces good weights well into the worse that
winter can throw at you. For some reason, though, after the first couple of hours the lake almost completely
It was still pretty close at the end with only a few ounces between first and
second. Phil Sansby just taking the spoils with 29lb 14oz from peg 2. Over on peg 10, the worst Peg on the venue
(according to angling guru Cookie ) all of the feeding fish seemed to be over next to the island with Paul Cooke
plundering them on the method feeder, when no one else could get a bite!! But even they dried up
eventually Cookie coming in second with 29lb 15oz.
It was pretty obvious that Simon Blackwell must have been catching as there were no
complaints from anglers on the other lakes to keep the noise down . Simon next peg to Phil took third place with 24lb 15oz.
Gavin Norton needed just 13lb 12oz to take Section 1 from peg 6. Section 2 going to Chris
Crane with 17lb 13oz and Den (never on a bad peg) Porter took section 3 with 22lb 3oz from peg 29
Away Day at Peatling Plough & Harrow
Thirteen Members fished the latest Away Day match. It was held on the popular Peatling Fisheries,
and our match was held on both plough and Harrow lakes.
Harrow lake fished much the better of the two with Pete Heane winning the day with 49lb 11oz from
peg 26 on Plough. Steve Kinch running him close, on peg 9 Plough, with 47lb 15oz. In a close competition Den Porter
was also not far behind. Den netting 46lb 5oz for third place on peg 17, also on Plough.
Mark Akiens was the only prize winner on Harrow lake, his 19lb 3oz from peg 7 giving
him a section win. Section 2 was won by Vinnie Logie with 30lb 9oz from peg 22 on Plough.
Away Day at Peatling Lake
There were twelve members at Peatling Pools Lake "A" to fish an Away Day match. the
weather was pretty good for the time of year with a strong breeze blowing toward one edge of the lake, the odd
shower and some bright sunshine in between.
It was a pretty slowish start and although everyone caught fish it was a little
disappointing for what can be a prolific water on its day. Paul Edwards was top rod on the day with 66lb 3oz
on peg 39. Most of Paul's fish coming from the middle to the end of the match with the inside margins providing
some good fish.
Den Porter fished a similar sort of match to Paul, with, again, the Pole fished margins
providing good sport. which was pretty surprising considering how clear the lake was. Den took the runner up
spot with 54lb 14oz from peg 35.
Keith Macfarlane took Section 1 with 50lb 10oz from peg 14. Section 2 going to Chris Crane with
50lb 8oz from peg 32.
Reserving of Swims
I have been asked Broome Water Officer Terry Branston to pass on
Our lakes are for the
benefit of all members whatever your intended species. We have been notified that some members have been turned
away at Frolesworth as they have been told that it’s a Carp syndicate water. IT IS
NOT. None of our lakes are, and secondly no one is allowed to reserve a peg unless it’s a scheduled match
that’s set down in your membership book. So feel free to fish any swim that suits your style of
Away Day at Jansons Fishery
Eleven members travelled to Nottinghamshire to fish an Away Day match at Jansons Fishery, on
the newly opened Aubrey's Lake. There were a lot of bites to be had, with most getting good nets of fish.
Chris Crane was top rod on the day weighing in with 70lb 8oz from peg 9. It was very close at the
top with just 8oz separating the top two. Simon Blackwell just missing out with 70lb from peg 20 earning him
the runner-up spot.
Gavin Norton took Section 1 with 65lb 13oz from peg 6. Section 2 going to Den Porter, on peg 16,
netting 63lb 2oz.
Away Day at Peatling
Thirteen members fished an Away Day match at Peatling lakes on Canal and Crane Lakes. On a pretty
miserable day where the rain just never seemed to stop Phil Dayman did well to net 84lb 13 oz to take first place
from peg 8 on Crane. Canal lake provided the runner-up with Paul Edwards continuing his good run of form netting
70lb 13oz from peg 28. Gavin Norton, also on Canal, was just a few ounce behind with 70lb 7oz for third place on
Section 1 went to Keith Macfarlane with 68lb 11oz from peg 4 on Crane. Malc Spring taking Section
