Wha­ley’s win­ning weight

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT -

Yax­ley, Farcet, Holme and DAC strayed from their usual fen wa­ters onto a small pri­vate lake not far from the city cen­tre with rudd be­ing the main­stay of most of the catches.

Lionel Wha­ley caught from the start, fish­ing a wag­gler three rod-lengths out. Us­ing red mag­got and loose-feed­ing the same he caught 20lb 1oz.

Push­ing him hard off the next peg was John Fur­nell with 15lb us­ing the same bait and tac­tics.

Keith Round­ing came third fish­ing close in, again us­ing red mag­got hook­bait, and he put 13lb 6oz to the scales.


Mike Mo­han won the Tues­day Club match on the High Bank sec­tion at Ferry Meadows with a 15lb 15oz net of skim­mers and roach caught on the pole.

Run­ner-up was Alan Jo­pling with 13lb 15oz and third with 13lb 12oz was Mike Smith.


Rob Wright has been smash­ing out big weights at carp wa­ters across the area, but again he showed he is just as for­mi­da­ble on nat­u­ral venues when he topped the Ramsey AS club match on their own wa­ters at Ramsey St Mary’s with 8lb 6oz. Sec­ond was Harry Young on 5lb 15 oz.


Martin Har­wood again topped the open match at Had­don Lodge with 39lb 4oz us­ing his tried and trusted method of fish­ing banded big hard pel­let and feed­ing smaller sam­ples to keep the carp com­ing.

Not too far off the pace was Tony Moulds (34lb 10oz) and Brian Faulkner (21lb) was third.
