Mal Doyle’s Top 3 challenge match.

Top 3 challenge match.

Today saw 20 anglers fish a top 3 section match which was the brainchild of top 2 specialist Malc Doyle.

The day started warm turning to rain for most of the match which was also cold which put the carp off feeding and also out of range.

There was a very close battle between Steve Wilson and Gareth Price on pegs 40 and 5 which was eventually won by Gareth with his weight of 105-01 to Steve’s 102-13.

Redland Construction Match 9th July 2017.

Top weight of the year in today’s match.

Today saw Redland Construction Sponsor today’s match and 17 of yesterday’s match anglers returned for another day of bagging big carp to nearly 20lb.

Today’s winner was Steve Trevett who also won yesterday’s match who put a brilliant 310-08 on the scales to win today’s match.

Steve’s weight is current the biggest match weight of the year so far ( well done Steve).

There were also 8x  100 lb plus weights in this match which saw a return of carp feeding properly after spawning.

Over the last two days there have been 15 weights over 100 lb  and 1 300lb so the weights are really picking up, so Wednesday’s match could see another big weight .

Rolfslake Wednesday Open 5th July 2017.

In form Dan Blackwell on fire at the moment.

Continuing his good form of late was Dan Blackwell who today was fishing peg 7 in the small lake.

Dan started on the bomb and then switched between fishing short and down the edge to catch a mixed bag of carp and bream.

Dan fished pellet to catch carp to just double figure to just stay ahead of Jamie Amer who was fishing on peg 4 as Dan had 149-07 to Jamie’s 147-00.

Completing the frame was John Draper who was fishing in the middle on peg 5 who had the 3rd ton weight of the day with 121-05.

I would expect the weights to now rocket as the fish start to settle down after spawning.

Today’s winner Dan Blackwell.


15 Fished.
