Decoy Lakes owner Diane Band kindly allowed JVAC to fish on two lakes at the weekend due to the extremely high winds and it was gratefully received by those braving the elements.

It was certainly most welcome to matchwinner on the Yew Pool Mick King.

After a poor start to the match on the pole and pellet, he switched to a small pellet feeder fished across to the far side and caught steadily for the rest of the day.

He netted several fish to double figures to finish on 127lb 15oz from peg 12.

Just a few pegs away was Roger Gowler on 15. He persevered with the long pole line and caught his fish on pellet to finish with 75lb 4oz.

John Savage came in third on this lake putting 67lb 15oz to the scales.

It was much closer on the Oak Pool.

Nick Carlton took the honours with 109lb 7oz. He caught best fishing a small maggot feeder.

Dave Parsons fished a pellet feeder to finish with 92lb 9oz for second place and then came Andy Kelk with 90lb 10oz.

It was a good day all round for Kelk as the match was also the final round of the club’s knockout event and he won it after seeing off the challenge of Lee Kendal, who put 57lb 14oz to the scales.
