Great day at Totham Pit

Great day at Totham Pit today, this little lot by 11am. Went on to land 2 more Tench and about 15 Roach all 8oz+ but lost 4 more Tench and a Carp in the weed :(

Thanks to Paul Kemp for the picture.


Biggest Tench 6lb 8ozish, Biggest Bream 7lbish, Rudd just over 1lb.

Great job on the trees by the way – Kelvin Willis.

Al’s big silver

This rather nice roach (or hybrid?) fell to two sweetcorn haired to a size 12 under a locslide float.  Here’s the obligatory ‘fish on a landing net and unhooking mat with float and rod for scale :-D ’ photo.  Didn’t have my scales with me (again!) runs about 31/32 cm long, the locslide float is 15cm long so there’s a measure.


Other than some pesky perch and a few more hand size roach a quiet day…. apart from the carp going doolally spawning and thrashing about.
 

As an aside this is my first year back regular fishing since I was a lad of 13/14 :-) so far this year I’ve had a 13lb pike the other week, a 5lb+ tench out of Rook Hall and a 10.6 common out of Little Park (that’s one of my personal goals for this year done a double carp, am still up for the 20lb pike) – Al.

Driberg cup result

The Driberg cup match was well attended by sixteen anglers on Sunday at Boreham Black Bridge, Steve Holden won the cup with a nice bag of Roach totalling 8lbs 15oz caught on bread punch. Second was Jeff Forman in an unfancied swim with 8lbs 6oz and third was Adam Brett with 7lbs 12oz.  All brought fish to the net and although it was very windy the rain held off making for a good day for all.  Sorry no photo!!!  - Kim.
