GONE FISHING CLUB Match Report No 5 Date: 29-10-2016 Venue: Hair Pie

Below is the latest report from Gone Fishing Clubs – Ian Owen They fished the prolific Harepie Fishery near Newbridge.

This weeks match was held at Hair Pie which although a small venue is well stocked and early signs were it would produce good healthy bags for all involved.

Chris Lamey set us of with a lovely few carp back to back and this just snowballed as everyone fishing was catching, although not all of the anglers were catching carp.

Plenty of silvers coming out and as the day went on it was clear that John Lovell was producing the weights as he was very busy with carp and lots of silvers.

Matt Cross who was on the other side of the lake was not catching carp but was in to a good run of silvers with some impressive Roach, we also had Tom Owen catching plenty of silvers and fishing on corn and maggot, off course the best weather for roach so not a surprise.

Lovell stormed ahead with Craig Lamey making a late surge and having lost a few decent carp in the tight peg on the lake he was unlucky to finish in second.
Some hard work from all who entered and the banter was flowing thick and fast.

A great match and plenty of banter got the anglers through the cold day

The results:

1st  – John Lovell49lb 10oz

2nd – Craig Lamey 39lb 5oz

3rd  – Ian Owen 26lb 10oz gonefishingclub/

Another Great day fishing well done all who entered and next week sees a different setting being Slade Reservoir and with the last hour being tackle away and spinning for pike and perch.
