Two anglers Garin Grace Rossiter and Matthew O’Brian landed nineteen carp between them on the Big Pit.

Visiting angler John Evans from Bristol caught four Perch weighing up to 4lb 1oz using red maggot and prawn, whilst Anthony Bradley had a cracking day on the Match Lake and caught a lovely Barbel.


On the Specimen Lake more personal bests were achieved this week.

“Mr Tuts” a common at 29lb 12oz was landed as a new pb for Joe Olewnik off peg 11a. And from cabin 11, Nathan Dee also landed a pb with “The Turk” weighing in 31lb 13oz.


Ashley Hughes landed a mirror at 27lb from The Island, whilst Darren Ned landed two carp including a pretty 24lb mirror from Megs Corner.

Sam Child who’s previous pb was from the fishery went and caught a new pb again from peg 8 with a 32lb 14oz common called “Jasper”

Congratulations to everyone with the new personal bests, the management apologise for the inconvenience caused last week in the shop, alterations to the shelving and layout were made to allow new stock to be added.

Well done to all anglers and until next time, tight lines and all.
