With the school hol­i­days fast ap­proach­ing, why not take a leaf out of Lyminge land­lord Steve Dales’ book and take your kids fishing. At the pro­lific Che­quertree Lakes near Smar­den, Steve and his young daugh­ter both caught per­sonal bests and our sport has a new mem­ber. Well done to you both. Lo­cal sea match an­gler Mar­tyn Reid was top rod at the Fountain Club’s lat­est beach match with 11.115kg. Salt­wood’s John Wells was sec­ond with (4.095kg) and Ju­lian Bau­sola (2.014kg) came third. Good weights for this time of year. The Folke­stone and Shep­way an­glers are hav­ing bumper sport at the lo­cal Rad­nor Park pool. The lat­est match was won by P Fo­ley with 56lbs 15oz, with R Roberts (35lbs 12oz) sec­ond and P Williams (24lbs 8oz) third. Over at Dun­geness, Paul Mort­lock was top rod with 10lb 9oz and John Smith sec­ond with 8lb 8oz. Third was Phil Tan­ner with 5lb 9oz – dog­gies, pout and dabs were in the catches. The Cinque Ports an­glers were caught in the re­cent storms when fishing their evening match at Hythe. This can be dan­ger­ous as the car­bon poles that are used are good light­ning con­duc­tors! The win­ner for the third time was Lau­rie Web­ster with 2.32kg. Sec­ond for the third time was Colin Con­roy with 2.08kg and third was Les Fos­ter with 1.85kg. Lo­cal carp an­gler Mark Dyer had a su­perb 41lb mir­ror carp from the pro­lific Chil­ham Mill Lake. Ken­tish ‘for­ties’ are rare so well done! The Sun­day club match at the Light Rail­way stretch of the canal was won by Ben Lam­bourne with bream for 5.75kg. Sec­ond was Gra­ham Slingsby with 4.02kg and Brian Hoo­ley was third with 3.85kg.
