We were treated to another absolutely fantastic sunny Bank Holiday weekend for the May Spring Bank Holiday. On the Sunday, we held an Open Sweepstake Fishing Match and our first BBQ of the season.
Paul Bell very kindly organised the match, which was well attended by our regular fishermen and women, together with some less frequent fishers! The weather conditions were fabulous and there were some great catches. Some of the notable performances included Paul Bell, Martin Simpson, Dale Gill, Adam Fletcher and Ashley Moffatt.
The match was followed by our customer BBQ which was well attended by lots of customers from the Park together with their families and friends. The sunshine was the icing on the cake making the day and the whole Bank Holiday weekend a great success!
Another Great Couples Match
Today saw our first Couples Match of the 2013 season. We had a total of 26 eager fishermen and women, all of whom put in some great performances. Paul and Lindsey Bell topped the table with a catch of over 30lbs, the bulk of which was due to Lindsey's super catching! They were closely followed by a number of other couples including Alan Rushforth and Ann Wall, Adrian and Julie Dye, Richard and Ann Bell, Dale and Nicola Gill and Jeff and Di Murray. The ladies in particular seemed to make some great catches with some good sized carp coming out. Even Mark and Jo came out with a very respectable 5lbs 13oz which for their second time fishing wasn't bad! Thanks again for all those who took part and helped organise the match.
