A water that has been around for some time now is Rookery Farm Fishery at Pidley.

But now that March matchman Alex Bates has taken over the reins with regard to matches I am sure we are going to hear much morefrom the venue.

The latest match at the fishery on the Magpie Pool saw Rob Anstee take first place from peg one with 52lb 8oz of small carp and barbel.

Runner-up was March rod Tim Bates with 36lb 4oz followed by Geoff Arnold with 36lb and Rob Hewison on 31lb.

The fishery is running regular Saturday open matches with the draw at 9am and fishing from 10.30am until 4.30pm.


Another fishery running regular weekend open matches is Townsend Lakes and on Sunday the Woodpecker Pool was in good form.

Local rod Dave Priestly topped the field from peg nine with a mixed bag taken on the pole with pellet for a level 62lb.

Colin Begbie took second place with 46lb 14oz followed by Harry Morgan on 36lb 14oz.
