A big thank you to the 21 anglers who turned out to fish Wooda Lakes Annual Fur ‘n Feather Match, fished across their Mixed Match and Carp match lakes. With mild weather the fishing ought to have been excellent, but with an influx of cold water it made for tough fishing for most. With the carp holed up tight, the silver fish at least gave sport for some, while others just enjoyed the day out, the occasional drizzle and banter…. the John “I’m admitting to 10lb, but your carp are bigger” Lisle and Pete “I only have 10lb” Slade banter continued after the match!

Overall winner on the day was Neilsen Jeffrey, pegged on the wood side of the Carp Match lake, weighing in 53lb 2oz of carp caught mainly on the pole. Second was Kevin Shears, from the point on the Mixed match lake, with 40lb 4oz. Third was Lewis Jones with 37lb 12oz at the far end of the Carp Match lake.
Pools was paid out to:
Neilsen Jeffrey – overall winner 53lb 2oz
Kevin Shears – winner Mixed lake 40lb 4oz
Lewis Jones – winner Carp match lake 37lb 12oz
