Ringer rules in the big match at Ferry Mead­ows

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT - By Ken Wade ANGLING COR­RE­SPON­DENT

The well su­ported Ivan Marks Memo­rial match took place on the lakes at Ferry Mead­ows on Sun­day and again saw a star-stud­ded field line the banks.

Huge con­grat­u­la­tions go to Ge­off Ringer for tak­ing the top spot by a coun­try mile with a fine net of bream weigh­ing 103lb from peg 111.

In sec­ond place was Nigel Tru­man with 48lb fol­lowed by Adam Wake­lin on 47lb.


The Tues­day club were back at Ferry Mead­ows fish­ing Gun­wade Lake on the High Bank.

Top rod from peg 33 was Nigel Briggs with 19lb 13oz.

Run­ner-up was Gra­ham Page on 14lb 12oz, fol­lowed by Mike Smith with 13lb 15oz.

It was pleas­ing to hear that the top three an­glers all caught on the pole so there is ob­vi­ously plenty of fish about on this sec­tion of the fish­ery.


The Six Is­land Pool on the De­coy com­plex con­tiues to be heav­ily fished but weights have been hold­ing up rea­son- ably well.

There were some con­sis­tent if not spetac­u­lar nets taken in the Fen­land Rods pairs match.

The event saw Peter Par­lett and Kev Lee take the hon­ours with five points, fol­lowed by Dick War­rener and John Smith with six.

Top in­di­vid­ual was Bill Foster on peg 25 weigh­ing in 90lb 6oz.


On Sun­day it was the turn of Hotpoint AC to give the venue a try and thank­fully quite a few more fish were taken, de­spite a strong wind blow­ing down the lake all day.

Lead­ing the way with a fine 142lb 14oz from peg 13 was Paul Faulkner, who caught on a small Method feeder with banded pel­let.

Not too far be­hind was Pete How­son. He was on peg 25 and caught right from the off with meat fished in the mar­gins to fin­ish just short on 138lb 9oz.

Third place went to Ty­rone Horn, who had 101lb 12oz from peg 18.

OVER 55s

In the De­coy Over 55s two- day sum­mer spe­cial, day one saw Ray Pauly out in front on Six Is­lands.

He caught on the pole with pel­let and corn from peg 11 putting 116lb 4oz to the scales.

In sec­ond place was Gus Gaus­den on 98lb 8oz, fol­lowed by Ray Tor­ring­ton with 98lb 4oz.

The sec­ond day saw the an­glers lin­ing the Yew Pool, where a good draw on peg 22 put Ray Tor­ring­ton out in front. He caught close in on cat meat weigh­ing in 177lb 12oz.

Run­ner-up on peg 15 was Mike Mitchell with 164lb 12oz fol­lowed by Vince Hull with 146lb 5oz.


As al­ways JVAC fished the De­coy Lakes.

Their lat­est match saw them on the Wil­lows, which saw peg 25 once again pro­duce the goods.

This time it was Alan Mar­shall on the hot peg. He caught on a small feeder fished to the is­land to weigh in 126lb 10oz.

In sec­ond place was Andy Gaus­den. He wasn’t best pleased to have drawn peg seven out of the bag but he worked hard on caster fished shal­low and later caught well in the mar­gins to fin­ish with a very good 103lb.

Tr­ever Dew came in third on peg one, putting 96lb 2oz to the scales.

Barry Stacey won the King of the Fens League match.

Cock Inn win­ner Mick Sid­ney.

Tues­day Club win­ner Nigel Briggs.
