Sherwood Forest Fishery – 18th September 2016

1st.  P Wells – 48lb

2nd.  A Logan – 41lb

3rd.  J Leivers – 35lb

4th. D Perry – 28lb

The fishing was really hard going this week with most struggling for bites. Finishing in first place was Paul Wells – Paul fished a really good match and fished his margin from the off catching carp to 10lb, beating Adam off the next peg. Adam fished casters for silver and managed a couple of bonus carp late on. Jonathan’s good run of form continues with third place this week. Jonathan fished maggots short for silvers and caught manly ide.

Fisherwick – 11th September 2016

1st.  J Leivers – 87lb 2oz

2nd.  M Smedley – 76lb

3rd.  C Logan – 68lb 15oz

4th. A Logan – 68lb 14oz

The fishing was good this week considering nearly all pegs were used for the match. Anglers who did draw next to a spare peg seemed to do better. Finishing in top spot this week was Jonathan Leivers – Jonathan fished hard pellet short on pole and managed to keep the fish feeding on this line all day, for his best weight on this venue.  Second went to Martin Smedley – Martin fished the feeder for most of the match, catching carp to 3lb.  Third place went to Craig Logan – Craig caught really well for the first 3 hours fishing the feeder and pellet wagler before his peg died and he couldn’t get a bite for the next hour!  He did manage to get the odd fish from his margin with 30min to go. Just missing out on third place was Adam Logan – Adam fished the feeder for the first part of the match but struggled to get regular bites.  However, a switch to the short pole line fishing meat changed his match completely and was unlucky not to frame.

Beechwood Kingfisher – 4th September 2016

1st.  D Gaetto – 54lb 6oz

2nd.  G Holmes – 50lb 13oz

3rd.  J Leivers – 50lb 6oz

4th.  C Logan – 46lb 10oz

This week was a very closely fought match, with all anglers catching steadily throughout.  Apart from match secretary Mr Knighton who didn’t even weigh in…  Danny Gaetto came in first place, drawing peg 32 for the first time – a good peg and he made the most of it.  Next peg along was Glen Holmes who fished short and pushed Danny all the way but just missed out on bragging rights on the way home.  Third place went to Jonathan Leivers who got lucky with a 15lb Carp in the last minutes of the match, pushing Craig Logan into fourth place.
