Nyewood Bottom Lake


This new venue attracted a slightly better attendance with five GAS juniors and welcome visiting addition from the PDAC ranks, in the shape of 12 year old Ollie Tupman.

With plenty of room for each junior it was hoped weights would come good, despite the advent of very cold weather. There was a marked improvement with carp putting in an appearance for nearly everyone! End pegs looked to be good, but it was the higher end peg, which saw the greatest increase in weights. Drawn on peg 6 towards the top lake was Ethan Etherington, who showed his class by banking over 11 carp for a superb 53lb, caught mainly on method feeder with pellet.

Narrowing the league points gap, on leader Jess Carter, was Ben Gregoriades on peg 4, who managed 4 carp for 18lb+, taken mainly on method again. He now is only 1 point behind Jess, so the Christmas match will be something of a battle I suspect!

Third place saw Jess Carter, peg 3, take 12lb of mainly silvers to pole and maggot, although she did manage a carp of about 3lb to help bolster her overall weight. The Christmas match is now set up for a ding-dong battle between Jess and Ben!

Our thanks go to Petersfield Angling Club for the use of their superb lake in Nyewood and also to Andy Reed and Keith Tupman for their invaluable help in organising this round.

Next match is the Christmas match on Hill Pond, followed by the party and prize giving in the pavilion on December 15th

Junior Match, Richardson Lake, Marsh Farm
27 October 2018


Having suffered two of the coldest nights this end of the year, it was always looking ‘iffy’ for the kids to catch well, and so it proved! With just four turning out and the best pegs used, it still didn’t improve things. Bites where hard to come by and first to catch was Ethan Etherington on peg 11 with a 2lb bream to the feeder. Then Ben Gregoriades got involved with the monster carp, that seems to take great pleasure in trashing everyone’s gear…young and old alike! However Ben did manage to get one of his smaller relatives later to weigh in just under 2lb. from peg 13 on maggot feeder.
A last gasp bite netted Jess Carter a 2.5ozs skimmer from peg 9 to maintain her lead in the points table.
As there were few attending, vouchers went to the top two.
Next match is at Nyewood Lakes, NOT BRAMLEY, courtesy of Petersfield Angling. When you book in, I’ll send you postcode details and a map which shows directions.

A nice but chilly start to the day saw 8 pairs turnout. The draw looked to favour those nearest the clubhouse end, but it was in the middle area that saw the best weight with Team Devasagayam securing the win, for a corrected result! Dad Pete netted 5 fish for over 42lb and when combined with Matt’s 2 fish, totaling 24lb+, they ended up with 67lb+.

Initially announced as winners, Team Etherington drew near the clubhouse and dad Paul, fishing a method tight along the tree line, ended up with 4 fish, topped by a superb 17lb 14oz common, while son Ethan could only look on. However, Ethan did managed to snare one near the end and the pair finished with a grand total of 61lb 4ozs to finish close behind.

A few pounds behind where Team Gregoriades and it was the dad Marcus who once more who led they way with 4 fish for 34lb 11ozs. Son Ben netted 2 fish to take the pair’s final weight to over 56lb.

Top junior weight was Tye Hackman with 3 fish for 32lb 8ozs 8 dr.
Biggest junior fish prize went to Leo Tilbury with a stunning 15lb 10ozs common.
