"Pearce Gives Them A Real Pasting"
Remenham anglers travelled to Hampshire to fish Billhook Lake which has been on top form recently with 100lb + bags however, although the weather was ideal, the fishing was average.
Trevor Pearce led the way with 59lb 10oz of carp starting on the method feeder and switching to the Paste to clinch victory. Nigel Smith continued on form in second place with 46lb 15oz of quality Carp caught on pellet at 5M on the pole in the margins close to a reed bed. Third place went to Dick Shillito with 44lb 12oz of Carp again caught on the pellet close in on the pole.
Section winners were Roger Howard with 39lb 14oz who caught on the method feeder close to an island feature and Alan Brand with 27lb 10oz who fished maggot switching between the "pole method" and the traditional rod method feeder.
The match this weekend is at Frobury Farm, Hampshire's premier fishery right in the heart of Watership Down in the rolling Hampshire countryside, just 5 miles south of Newbury on the A339, the draw is at 9.00am
