Arthur beams with his Bradwell catch
The latest angling news from around Milton Keynes
BRADWELL's tench are on the feed – as well as its bream – and Arthur Terrill has just had a tinca big enough to make most people happy.
Revelling in his passion for angling in a second-time-around fishing career, he's just bagged a 7-13 – his biggest yet from the water – and then banked a bream of similar size. His smile says it all!
ON Furzton Gary Darker managed two carp after moving swims a couple of times, the biggest going 23-12. And an overnight on the same water saw Mark Robinson land a 20 and a 15-10 – both on float and sweet corn, while Jay Todd went on the feeder to land six good carp having previously had a nice bag of bream and skimmers on the cut.
SHORT of a match to fish, Lee Jones went after Caldecotte's big bream and, in far from ideal bright sunshine without so much as a breath of wind on the hottest day of the year to date, had just one pull which produced an 8-12.
IN three hours on Wolverton Mill Neil Charlwood had six carp in his net – all on pellet waggler. All were commons except the last, which was a mirror. "In two years of fishing the Mill all I've had were commons, so I was quite surprised."
FEEDING the margins little and often during the small hours on Tear Drops brought Stefan Clark a good double-figure fully-scaled mirror.
CARP – and lots of them – made Neil Richardson's day at Alders as he won the Kingfishers' club match with 147-11. Jonny White had 91-5 and Colin Chart 56-12.
EARLIER in the week MK Vets were also on Alders where Barry Witteridge won, ahead of Maver MK stars Simon Cordingley on 84-12 and Roger Clutton, 80-9.
TOWCESTER vets found the going slow at Barby Marshes where Les Goodridge had 30-7, Les Ramsden 12-11 and Chris Howard 11-9.
LAGOON AC's Potash Farm do went to Nigel Steel on 17-2, Mark Penwell had 4-6 and John Robison 2-14.
MILL Pool's open was the last of the series and saw Paul Abbott win, again, with 16-10 as Paul Chapman weighed 13-8 and Richard Lattimer 12-2 – all three having been pegged in line.
