Junior Match, Dads & Lads
May 12th 2018


With rain forecast for later in the day, the 7 pairs kicked off in reasonable weather, but as usual the weatherman got it wrong again and rain started to fall halfway into the match. We saw two new additions to the usual lads & dads teams with Dan Winfield and Adrian Trent bringing their off-springs to sample the delights of GAS team fishing, which they thoroughly enjoyed!

With a disappointing draw, Team Etherington started well, much to their surprise and kept going to remain ahead of the field until the final whistle. Paul showed that he’s kept the good form from his recent Wednesday open successes with a super catch of tench to the bomb and maggot for 31lb 8ozs with son Ethan adding the best junior weight of 18lb 5ozs of bream and tench for a joint 49lb 13oz win.

Nearest rivals were the consistent team of Dave & Michael Ewing. Dave weighed in 27lb 8ozs which included a carp of around 8lb while Michael managed 9lb 8ozs of bream and tench for a respectable second place with 37lb.

Third place went to one of the new additions, Dan and Harrison Winfield. But it was Harrison who showed his dad how to catch with a commendable 15lb 15oz of tench and bream to his dads 9lb 2oz.

Coming in fourth was the second new pairing of Adrian and Wilbur Trent who managed a joint weight of 22lb 1oz.

Well done to all the teams, no matter where you finished.

1st Paul & Ethan Etherington 49-13-0
2nd Dave & Michael Ewing 37-0-0
3rd Dan & Harrison Winfield 25-1-0

River Wey Hell Ditch Fish Pass
Added on May 17, 2018
The Environment Agency has recently funded the creation of a fish pass at the top of the Hell Ditch upstream of Godalming. 

This is a brush style fish pass which connects the Hell dich to the main
River Wey. The Hell ditch hosts some good habitat which we expect coarse
fish will be using for spawning during the spring. The new fish pass will
ensure that fish can freely pass to good spawning habitat and juvenile fish
can then drop out of the Hell ditch to trickle feed the main river with
fish.
 
A fish rescue carried out during the fish pass construction saw a number of
different species of fish relocated to the main river.
