Wednesday Open Match. 4th September 2013

Today’s open match was fished by 10 anglers. Mark Newbold pegged the match out for John. The weather was hot and sunny down the lake.


1st Mark Newbold 5 321-11
2nd Mick Chappell 4 198-12
3rd Paul Jay 10 177-0
4th Kev Dolton 26 134-11
5th Pete Archer 8 132-6
6th John Draper 13 112-0
7th Dangerous Dave 16 80-14
8th Ben Bangham 32 74-9

John has asked me to put a foot not on these results. One angler had 120lb in a single net and also had 3 weighers in the net too. This as always is not acceptable especially when the weigh station and net box was right behind the peg involved.

Mark Newbold, Today’s winner. Well done. (fish not from today’s match.

I will be making a return to the lake on Friday to fish Gary Horne’s Annual match down the lake. The weather is supposed to be turning for the worse with rain forecast….Typical, hope my gore-tex still works ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›

Thanks for reading. John, Eddie and Simon.
