Another “Ton Up”

Congratulations to Ray Lightfoot who is yet another member of the Red Horses 100’s club hall of fame catching well over 100lb to win the match on Heronbrook’s Bridge pool.

hall of fame

The top 4 weights in fact were all over 100 lb, which is itself another landmark for our little club.

We have to to go out on a limb financially, booking matches at Heronbrook so:-

A Big Thank You! to everyone who attended.

No club match this coming Sunday – next match 16th September at the Willows.

I dropped in at the venue on Thursday (a warm sunny day) and saw countless carp basking and cruising on top.

Chatting with the bailiff he told me 112lb won Wednesdays match – mainly F1s with carp taken in the margins later on mostly caught on meat. Other methods he recommended were pellet shallow and also paste,  particularly on the deeper – siltier side of the lake, if it starts to fizz.

Hope to see you all there on Sunday

 

When is a Lake not a “Lake”

Answer: When it is a “Pool”

cafe

I have been reliably informed; by those that know this venue well, that there is both a Match “Lake” and a Match “Pool” (Although Heronbrook’s Website does not have the Pool listed) so to correct my previous post:-

It is the Match Pool that we are fishing this Sunday.

The form on this Pool indicates that we should still be aiming for 100lb for a win with over 50lb for a place – so still a good days fishing to be had

Apologies for any confusion
