ROUND-UP: Six in a row for hot Harwood

There is just no stopping Martin Harwood on the Haddon Lodge Fishery right now. If my records are correct he has won six matches in a row which in local club matches is almost unheard of.

Parker was a fitting winner at Buttonhole

The local angling world were shocked to hear that Webbs AC match organiser George Scally passed away recently. He was never short of a story to tell and rarely did you hear anyone have cross words with him throughout his many years in the fishing game.

Rookery Water continues to fish well and so does Kevin Peacock, this time putting a winning 135lb 6oz to the scales from peg 34 on the Jay Lake at the weekend.

Angling
Bob Walker.

Whopping win for Walker

If you are looking for really big nets of carp, and I mean big, then head over to Kingsland Fishery. The big Carp Lake was on fire for those fishing the Conservative Club match there on Saturday.

Kirby copes best with the wind

Strong winds spoiled the latest Peterborough & DAA match at Ferry Meadows along the High Bank on the Gunwade Lake.

Rob Goodson.

Good effort by Goodson on the Magpie Pool

Rookery Waters at Pidley has seen some cracking action recently so it’s easy to see why so many anglers are heading over to the fishery.

Mike Mitchell won the Over 55s match at Decoy.

So many great venues right on our doorstep

It seems only five minutes since the season closed on March 14 yet here we are ready for the start of a brand new fishing season on rivers right across the country and of course closer to home on our unique Fenland drains.
