THE eight anglers booked in for last week’s fun fly fishing match at Jacklands Fishing Lakes arrived geared up in warm winter clothing as a cold wind was forecast.

THE eight anglers booked in for last week’s fun fly fishing match at Jacklands Fishing Lakes arrived geared up in warm winter clothing as a cold wind was forecast.

However, the occasional sunshine through the day more than made up for this.

In the five fish, five hour match 
Simon Matthews gained the weight bonus for completing his catch in two hours and went on to win overall. Dee Weston made sure the men didn’t have the lake all to themselves on this occasion.

Results: S Matthews (5.714kg, incl bonus); C Oatway (5.588kg); N Oxford (5.404kg).

Further matches are planned through the Spring and summer – to book phone 01275 810697.
