Cool weather reduces catches

Club bailiff Derek Orchard managed to get a single take fishing close to the near margins to his swim fishing at Gingerbread Lake. It turned out to be from a magnificent looking 33lb 8oz long common. Board member Kevin Webb was on hand to witness the weigh-in and photograph the fish. Dave Holland tried to catch tench using float-fished sweetcorn as bait but had to settle for catching roach in the 4-8oz bracket which fed avidly throughout the morning.
