Junior Match 
September 28th 
Nyewood Lake, Petersfield


There may have only been 5 fishing but it was a great match with carp showing up for most. Best of all was Ben Gregoriades who drew the flyer peg 1 and caught all day to weigh in nearly 40lb of carp, skimmers and roach. At the other end of the bank was young Leo Hackman who fished brilliantly for a superb 31lb 11ozs of mainly carp. Next was Matt Devasagayem, who included a stunning 11lb 9oz mirror in his mixed bag of 26lb+.
Next match is at Lythe Hill on 12th October so don't forget to book in!

Junior Match September 14th Broadwater Lake
Added on September 17, 2019

Junior Match
September 14th
Broadwater Lake


It was a change to give the juniors a crack at the super silverfish resident in the lake for a change and everyone enjoyed the challenge. With 6 turning up everyone had plenty of space as they set about putting roach, rudd, perch and the odd gudgeon in their keepnets. Carp did put in an appearance but the competitors coped with them easily as they shot off back into the lake (the carp that is!).

Showing his class, young Ben Gregoriades set up a pole and whip to take a superb mixed net for 12lb 10oz 8dr on maggot and caster. Ben is now starting to pull away from the field in the league, but it's still close at the top. Last years league winner, Jess Carter, finished second with a similar catch for just over 8lb to keep her chances of retaining her title alive. Jess fished maggot and caster over hemp. Monty Martin kept some better stamp fish coming to weigh in over 6lb, all caught on short pole and maggot.

There was some sibling rivalry during the match with Matt and Katie Young going head-to-head in adjacent pegs, but it was Katie who took home ‘bragging-rights’ with the better performance…and in only her second match! So well done Katie.

Ben Gregoriades 12-10-8
Jessica Carter 8-3-8

Katie Young & Leo Hackman both 5-10-0

Janaway Cup Report 2019
Added on September 10, 2019

 

A crisp September morning greeted the 25 youngsters fishing our annual Janaway Cup event.  This was the last of our regular Saturday coaching sessions and is run as a pairs match.  Every peg had a keepnet in the water ready for the off and at 9.15 the match got underway.  Rules are simple- catch as many fish as you can before 11.30 and the event would be decided on total weight.  The cold start meant fishing was tough and the usually obliging small roach and rudd proved hard to get.   Even the tench were on a go-slow.  In the end it was skimmers and crucians that fed the best.  Ben and Esther Corke on peg 5 set the pace with a couple of crucians and some roach.  Ben and Esther have been fishing with us for a couple of years and Ben in particular as desperate to win.  However, the pairing of Cameron Eadie on Peg 3 and Frank Owen on peg 14 provided some stiff competition.  Cameron had one crucian and Frank was putting together a steady string of small roach and the odd skimmer.

Ben added a third crucian to the Team Corke net but looked worried as news filtered through of a last minute tench for Frank.  All 25 youngsters followed the scales round the lake. Ben and Esther weighed in 4lb 4oz with their three crucians and bits.  Cameron had over a pound with his crucian so it all rested on that last minute tench.  When young Ben saw the tench his face beamed- it was only about half a pound.  This, coupled with the skimmers and roach went nearly three pounds for Frank but not enough to beat the Corke family crucians.

The Janaway cup is fished for every year in memory of Chris Janaway, a local lad and young doctor who was tragically killed in a road accident in 2007.  The cup comes complete with a packet of jelly beans (the fishing treat Chris enjoyed as a boy) and was presented by Mr and Mrs Janaway.

With the presentations done we enjoyed a great BBQ- thanks to Dan, Wendy, Brian and Bill who organised all the food.   This was a great end to what has been a fantastic summer of coaching. My thanks go to all the coaches who are a fantastic team and work hard to make these events enjoyable for everyone who turns up.  Thanks also to all the parents and kids who enjoy their fishing and stick with it even when bites are hard to get.
