Easter Friday match at HORWOOD, despite a early morning frost the main lake fished well.

Well done to Craig Lamey who managed 15 fish from peg 4 for a lovely weight of 93lb 8oz catching on the method feeder and short pole, Stephen Barrell managed 66lb 3oz from peg 1, Stuart Towers had four lovely condition fish for 40lb 6oz so some very decent ones are now showing.

Top lake fished much harder but this meant everyone was in with a chance of winning that lake right up until the final whistle, Keith Mountjoy weighed in 21lb 10oz for second just 7oz behind Neilsen Jeffery who had 22lb 1oz

Cracking days fishing and lovely to see a few new faces.
