HOT SPORT IN THE COLD AT OR­CHARD PLACE

Nets of 182lb, 164lb and 175lb seal hon­ours at Kent fish­ery

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

THE cold and wet weather may have knocked the weights at many com­mer­cial fish­eries, but not so at the incredibly pro­lific Or­chard Place Farm in Kent. There, four clubs en­joyed sum­mer-like weights.

Best of the lot were the men of The Wed­nes­day Club. Their mid­week match saw a win­ning 182-0-0 of carp for Jor­dan Bri­ant who fished mag­got. Ge­off Davis was sec­ond on 164-0-0. The fish­ing was just as good for Med­way Trot­ters as Dean Fish bagged 175-8-0 of F1s on mag­got to win.

Things were a lit­tle less hec­tic for CESAS and White Hart Da­gen­ham when they ar­rived but a ton was still needed to win both matches. Andy Parker took the CESAS event with 101-5-0 of F1s on pel­let while Terry Bush topped the White Hart match with 116-14-0 of mag­got-caught F1s.

Some rivers were equally im­pres­sive, es­pe­cially the River Mole in Sur­rey where ex­tra wa­ter saw big fish make the run­ning in the Dork­ing AS match, Garry Sharp­less weigh­ing in 64-2-0 of bream on pole and bomb with mag­got to win eas­ily.
