It’s been very busy at White Springs this week, and the fishing has been very good.

Wednesdays open was on the New Canal.

1st on peg 13 was Alan Godrich 92lb 4oz.

2nd peg 20 Rob White 58lb 14oz.

3rd peg 5 John Charlesworth 52lb 12oz.

Sunday’s open was on the Match Lake.


1st peg 7 Chris Wells 127lb 6oz.

2nd peg 20 Andrew Ray 94lb 14oz.

3rd peg 13 Andy Kirtley 62lb.

Also on Sunday Sir Howy were on the New Canal.

1st peg 41 Richie Barnet 137lb 12oz.

2nd peg 23 Phil Weaver 105lb 2oz.


3rd peg 20 Mike Yandel 101lb 10oz.

On the Specimen Lake this weekend was our Annual 48hr charity competition in aid of Children’s Cancer and Cystic Fibrosis.

The lake was full to capacity with 36 anglers, a pair on each peg with 2 rods each.

Fishing started at one o’clock and Leyton Morris on peg 10 lost ‘Nails’ at the net. But a couple of hours later he had a new pb in the net ‘Sonny’ a stunning common at 33lb 6oz.

Saturday morning Leyton then had ‘BigB’ a lovely mirror at 33lb 2oz.

Over on peg 6a Lorenzo Bragau had 2 fish in the night a 29lb 5oz ‘The Long Common’ and a 17lb 6oz mirror followed by a 14lb 6oz putting him just behind Leyton.


Sunday saw Lorenzo take the lead with a 24lb 6oz. Leyton again took back the lead with a 22lb mirror.

Then with an hour to go Lorenzo was into a fish landing ‘The Don’ weighing 36lb 12oz his UK PB.

This put him in front and after ananxious wait for the bell that was how it finished, a cracking end to a great weekend.

1st Lorenzo Bragau and Radu Moise with 5 fish to 122lb 3oz.

2nd Leyton Morris and Andrew Hire with 3 fish to 88lb 8oz.

3rd Darren Stephens and Sonny Thompson 1fish 21lb 10oz.

Overall there was 12 fish out, not a bad weekends fishing.

Everybody at White Springs would like to thank Nash, Korda, Sasha Dicks plumbing, CR baits and John Cooper for donating some very nice prizes and to Brian Hodder for the Prize money and prizes.

Also to Martin for cooking the barbecue, and to every fisherman that collected sponsorship money and came and fished to make it a great weekend.

We have still got some money left to come in but have so far collected over £4500.

Well done everyone.

And from all the anglers that took part we would like to thank Bethan, Jarrod, Vince , Brian and all the staff at White Springs who help make this event the special occasion it has become amongst the anglers who repeatedly use the fishery.


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