 22 Nov Furnace Main Lake (Report by Trevor Pavitt)

Furnace lake with Carshalton today, -2 when we left home -3 when we arrived! Should have stayed in bed! Only hard- core anglers out today, anyway with reports of 15lbs top weight and 2lb for third place the previous day,  everyone was jumping around getting excited.....not, cut a long storey short, fishing was very hard, even  Martin silver Guru Charnock would have struggled today. Allen Adams getting a few fish on the end peg fishing on the early tree pegs,  was happy to tell everybody so but everyone else was scratching fo a bite. Nearly falling off my chair as I switched to a lighter rig and first cast a 2lb skimmer, aye aye, but that was lost at the net! Dave Freeman end peg on the far bank nicked a few skimmers late on for a whooping 7-8-0 to win beating long time leader Allen on 5-5-0, Alan Ringwood netted 2 eels for 4-4-0 and me Trevor 3-8-0 for fourth. Conclusion first hard frost of the year and fish like us all feeling the cold.

8th Nov BSA Top Lake

The top lake produced some great Perch today with Vincent Colgate catching a 3-8-0 specimen from peg 9 (top). It was a dull and wet day with strong facing winds for those with their backs to the car park. Top rod was Martin Charnock who ran away to victory with 21-12-0 of mainly Roach with the odd skimmer fished long, but it was the whip at 3 & 4 metres that did the damage using  Dino Albo floats in a 0.2/0.5g with caster on the hook. Second place was Pat Farrelly on peg 29 with 12-14-0 fishing pellet to catch mainly skimmers, in third Trevor Pavitt from peg 22 weighed 11-8-0 catching Perch and Barbel, Les Taylor on peg 8  weighed 8-4-0 to take fourth place.
