An­gling - East Mid­land Win­ter League

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

There was a big prac­tice match for round two of the East Mid­land Win­ter League on Sun­day spread over the Twenty Foot Drain and the Old Nene at March.

One or two sec­tions on the Twenty Foot were dif­fi­cult but look­ing at the re­sult the Old Nene is the place to draw this com­ing week­end as the rudd, roach and even tench showed along the pop­u­lar by­pass sec­tion.

In fact an­glers weigh­ing in 20lb didn’t even make the frame.

Danny Grim­sey topped a strong line-up with 38lb 6oz, fol­lowed closely by lo­cal rod Alan Palmer on 33lb 9oz and Tim Bates with 30lb 2oz.

It was great to see so many fish show­ing. Let’s hope it’s just as good this week­end.


Ram­sey & Dis­trict An­gling So­ci­ety held two matches last week.

In the reg­u­lar Wednesday match fished on Ram­sey St Mary’s there was a tie for the top spot as Ke­iron Payne and Malc Hobbs both put 5lb 5oz of small fish to the scales,

Malc San­som was third with 4lb 11oz, fol­lowed by Harry Young with 3lb 15oz.

They weren’t the best weights we’ve seen from that sec­tion this year but on The Nar­rows it was a real strug­gle for those fish­ing the Tony Bass Me­mo­rial wag­gler-only match.

And that was very dis­ap­point­ing after dou­ble-fig­ure nets had been recorded there last week.

Harry Young on peg one took just 1lb 11oz to lift the tro­phy. Sec­ond was Paul Kilby with 1lb 8oz fol­lowed by Keith Ray­ment on 1lb 2oz.


Back on the Old Nene at Ram­sey St Mary’s and Peter­bor­ough & DAA ran a match there which saw some very good nets of fish recorded topped by Amer Jawad.

He drew hot peg one and made no mis­take putting 22lb of rudd, roach and perch to the scales taken on the pole with pinkie over ground­bait.

Paul Dotchin had a sim­i­lar catch to the win­ner but fell just short with 15lb, then came Richard Lin­nell. He opted for a worm and caster ap­proach, net­ting perch and bonus tench for 12lb 14oz.


The Wil­lows at De­coy Lakes of­ten pro­duces some patchy form but on Sun­day in the JVAC match most an­glers had a good day’s sport.

Lead­ing the way and mak­ing it two wins on the trot was Guy Dew. He drew fan­cied peg 25 and put 113lb 6oz to the scales. He caught a few on the feeder but a long pole line with hard pel­let pro­duced the best run of fish.

On the next peg was Rob Ed­mond­son, who caught close in for 89lb 9oz, then came Mick King with 81lb 10oz from peg 15.


Lake Ross was the venue for the fi­nal round of the SHCS club event for the Deeping St James an­glers.

The win­ner was Colin Fisher with 109lb 11oz from peg 17. He started on a short pole line fish­ing paste over mi­cro pel­let and then after an early run of fish he moved to the mar­gins fish­ing meat over mi­cro pel­let and corn.

A close sec­ond was Tony John­son with 106lb 3oz from peg 13 and third was Ray Tor­ring­ton on peg 23 with 70lb 14oz.

The win­ner of the SHCS was Phil Price.

Colin Fisher won the Deeping St James AC match.

Nigel Bax­ter was a win­ner at De­coy Lakes.

Amer Jawad won the Peter­bor­ough & DAA match.
