4th Paul Ware 33lb 8oz

5th Paul Elworthy 27lb 1oz

18 Anglers fished this event held in glorious hot sunny conditions, we used both lakes and the fishing proved quite challenging for most. Local expert Nathan Underwood  took full advantage of a reasonable draw to completely dominate the field, he alternated between a method feeder and pole with paste on peg 10 on the larger lake. Mark Richards celebrated his 59th birthday with a hard earned 2nd place for the reed beds on peg 14 , 3rd spot went to Neilsen Jeffery on peg 21 on the smaller lake.

Match Report No 3
Date: 12-10-2016
Venue: High Hampton Lake 2

Match number three was at the fine venue of High Hampton although it was a strange one as it was on lake 2 which is a lake that fishermen never fish.

It was well under way and with an early push from Mathew Cross who in the first two hours had netted 10 carp, this was much to the surprise of other anglers as they were sitting staring in amazement and wondering what was happening.

Until Thomas Owen had a surge and caught four Carp back to back, a great effort from Tom on the day who won Man off the match as he has transferred over from Carp tackle to pole fishing and showed he was improving weekly.

John Lovell also started to catch, having caught some nice skimmers and a fair size bream on the feeder, we also saw last weeks winner netting some nice carp in an attempt to catch up with Cross who was now standing still as his swim had died

Other fisherman on the lake had also been catching and a wide size and variety of fish was being caught to make the match a close one, Cross had obviously capitalized on that early lead and wasn’t to be caught.

The results:
