Junior Match, Hill Pond
21st October 2017



With the venue being switched from Richardson’s Lake to Hill Pond, to help with the island clearances, it proved a fortunate move in light of the pending ‘Brian’ storm warnings. With their backs to the wind, the six competitors got on with the task in hand under difficult circumstances.

After a slow start, things picked up with roach and the odd crucian coming to those who took a softly softly approach. The two Ben’s were doing quite well but where being outshone by Jessica Carter, who ended the match with 6lb 14ozs, which consisted of 4 lovely crucians and a few roach. The win earned her maximum points in the league and a £20 gift voucher. Well done Jess!

Not too far behind was Ben Gregoriades who, like Jess, including a very nice crucian in his mainly roach catch of 4lb, despite having his hat blow off into the lake! Ben number 2 (Barnett), had a similar catch, but that only went to 3lb 6ozs. Fourth was George Evans, who we hadn’t seen for a while, and he showed that he’d not lost much of his skill with an all roach catch for 2lb 4ozs. It was also George’s birthday!

With just two rounds remaining the chase is on to see who can top the rankings. It looks a two horse race, but in winter fishing, anything can happen!!!
