THE LO­CAL lake at Sin­gle­ton has again demon­strated that an­glers do not need to travel to dis­tant com­mer­cial fisheries to en­joy a good day’s fish­ing.

This lake, owned by the coun­cil, but man­aged and con­trolled by Ash­ford Angling So­ci­ety, holds a good head of roach, bream, skim­mers, tench and perch. And on Sun­day, in an Ash­ford AS match, Mark Sam­son fish­ing from peg 45 found the bream shoal.

Fish­ing mag­got, on the feeder he pro­duced a winning weight of 36lb 12oz. com­fort­ably beat­ing Mick Ladley on peg 3 who had plenty of the smaller skim­mers in his bag of 15lb 11oz.

Third place went to Lou Stone fish­ing at the other end of the lake who also found skim­mers to make up his weight of 14lb 2oz

Early morn­ing con­di­tions were good but a strong cold wind de­vel­oped later which took the edge off the catches of many an­glers.

The next match will be held next Sun­day on the Rother at Black­wall.
