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

Caster­ways AC is a new club to the lo­cal an­gling scene and with more and more an­glers join­ing it looks like the club is re­ally go­ing to take off.

On Sun­day they were at Big­gin Lake for a sil­ver fish match which pro­duced a crack­ing re­sult with David Moisey tak­ing the hon­ours.

He put an ex­cel­lent weight of 28lb 3oz to the scales, made up of bream, tench and good skim­mers catch­ing on 6mm pel­let over mi­cro pel­let on the pole at eight me­tres.

Paul Dotchin came sec­ond he fished the wag­gler with worm for a net of skim­mers weigh­ing in 14lb 15oz, fol­lowed by Alan Jo­pling on 14lb 15oz.


The poor weather hit the at­ten­dance at sev­eral matches over the week­end - even the Satur­day De­coy Lakes Open saw a re­duced field on the Six Is­land Pool. But that helped to boost weights with a few pegs missed out.

Top rod was Rob Good­son with a fine 135lb 7oz net of carp taken from peg nine. The feeder line was not pro­duc­ing at the start of the match for him, but a switch to the long pole saw a good run of fish taken on red mag­got.

Close be­hind from peg 11 was Danny Carl­ton, who caught on the pole and pel­let for 133lb 12oz, fol­lowed by Barry Ma­son on 126lb 6oz.

The Sun­day De­coy Lakes Open saw a much big­ger field with both the Beastie Pool and Lou’s Lake be­ing used.

Fan­cied peg six on Lou’s topped a strong field with Des Proud tak­ing the hon­ours. He caught on the feeder then the pole with pel­let for 169lb 11oz.

Run­ner-up was Josh Pace from the Beastie Pool peg 30 fish­ing sim­i­lar tac­tics to the winner and weigh­ing in 156lb 12oz.

Tom Ed­wards did well to come third from peg five on Lou’s with 131lb 11oz.


JVAC were at De­coy Lakes as usual at the week­end fish­ing Six Is­lands and with plenty of fish will­ing to feed the venue pro­duced a good re­sult topped by Ian Frith on peg four.

He had a good run of fish on a short pole line with pel­let then moved out to the long pole line al­ter­nat­ing be­tween the two for the rest of the match to weigh in 135lb 5oz.

Run­ner-up was Guy Drew. He was on peg 18 and caught 90lb 15oz on pel­let, and he was fol­lowed by John Sav­age on peg 25 with 83lb 6oz.


With a very strong wind blow­ing across the Yew Pool for those fish­ing the De­coy Over 50s on Fri­day many re­lied on feeder tac­tics in­clud­ing the winner, Paul Pol­lard.

He caught on corn with a Method feeder to the mid­dle get­ting good carp at in­ter­vals for a com­fort­able win putting 79lb 12oz from peg 12.

Sec­ond was Ray Tor­ring­ton, who drew peg 25 and put 56lb 2oz to the scales. Third was John Buck­ham on 55lb 14oz.


Satur­day saw the Con­ser­va­tive Club fish­ing the Horse­shoe Lake at De­coy.

Match­win­ner from peg nine was Steve Fog­a­rty. He caught on the pole with pel­let and mag­got net­ting carp to 5lb to weigh in 67lb 3oz.

Run­ner up was the con­sist- ent Bob Bar­rett who fished the mar­gins with sweet­corn from peg 10 to record 41lb, then came An­drew Porter on peg 18 with 36lb 15oz.


Hotpoint AC fished the in­form Horse­shoe Lake at De­coy on Sun­day which pro­duced a re­ally close fin­ish.

Top rod from peg three was Kev Sch­nei­der with 76lb 15oz. He fished the pole al­ter­nat­ing be­tween sweet­corn and paste.

Run­ner-up was Ty­rone Horn. He drew peg one and caught on the feeder to start with be­fore switch­ing to the pole with pel­let and corn to fin­ish on 67lb 14oz. Third was Brian Faulkner on peg seven with 67lb 3oz.


Fenland Rods got their 2018 cam­paign off to a wet and windy start fish­ing the Cedar Pool over at De­coy Lakes.

For some the weather pre­sented no prob­lem at all, but those fish­ing into the wind found it very tough go­ing.

Top rod from peg 18 was Tony Nes­bett. He found the fish out in front of him after a slow start to the day.

Fish­ing a pole and pel­let com­bi­na­tion with a 6mm pel­let on the hook he topped the field with a very re­spectable 85lb 4oz.

Drawn on peg 20 sat Mac Camp­bell. He had real prob­lems foul hook­ing fish through­out the day but by the fi­nal whis­tle had man­aged to put 64lb 4oz to the scales caught on pel­let, sweet­corn and mag­got to take the run­ner up spot.

Fol­low­ing him was Dave Garner with 61lb 7oz and then came Alan Go­lightly weigh­ing in 52lb 3oz.
