Competition Fishing/Results


 9th February  Orchard Place Farm Lake 5.   'Friendly knock-up"      Report by Martin Charnock

 A friendly knock up organised by Alan Ringwood for Carshalton members saw 12 booked in for one of our new acquisitions for the upcoming season better known as the 'Doughnut Lake' at Orchard Place Farm. However the weather forecast didn't look too clever with storm Ciara expected and it did not disappoint. Even this was not a deterrent for those hardy souls that took part with some impressive weights for the conditions on the day. Alan Ringwood drawing peg 1 made no mistakes and taking a few tips from Graham 'Jonno' Johnson decided to fish corn catching F1's  for a winning weight of 87-14-0. On peg 10 Martin Charnock (moi) was agonisingly short landing 87-10-0 taking the runner up spot fishing the method early on then switching to the pole late on. Using maggot as bait with a 0.6g Benwick Silverlite Pellet  float (above) to a main line of 0.16mm to an 0.12mm hook length with a Gama Black size 16 hook. Third placed Andy Power weighed 77-4-0 from peg 3 fishing down the margins. In fourth place went to Michael Wakeling with 63-14-0 on peg 5.

15th March     Officers Challenge CADAS VS Croydon Postal A.S           Orchard Place Farm Lake 10

The Sunday before today's match saw quite a bit of banter being thrown around in a small cafe in Tonbridge, resulting  in officers from both Croydon Postal AS and Carshalton taking part in a light hearted grudge match at Orchard Place Farm on Lake 10 one of the Societies newly acquired waters for 2020.

                   Above shows the lake in the morning all tranquil this was to change with strong gale force winds.

The fishing was to prove difficult at times but what the Carshalton boys didn't know was Croydon had fished it the week before giving them a slight advantage with their tactics. This was to prove vital for them as their victory was only slight but a win is a win well done to Croydon. Top anglers on the day were from L-R Clive 'End Peg" Mills  landing 32-2-0 which included a large Bream in excess of 3lbs. Second was Martin 'MR Whippy' Charnock CADAS weighing 30-10-0 of mainly Roach in third place was Graham 'Whip Apprentice' Johnson with 22-8-0 with two bonus Tench. Alan "Carp Guru' Ringwood managed fourth catching some nice skimmers for 20-6-0.
