Sturminster & Hinton AA had their Christmas Hamper match at Revels fishery yesterday.
15 anglers braved the strong wind and non-stop horizontal rain and, in spite of the conditions, enjoyed the occasion and the bacon butties and mince pies provided by Jason.
It took over 20lbs of carp to win the match.
Paul Wyatt, pegged on the Main Lake, used a method feeder with double maggot on the hook to catch 27lbs 12ozs of carp to win a nice hamper and a useful ‘gift token’ to spend in the tackle shop.
The top weight of silvers came from Andrew Chatterley who had 4lbs 11ozs of small roach and perch from the Main Lake to take home a similar prize to Paul.
Jamie Bumby had a nice bag of small carp from Main Lake weighing in at 14lbs 1ozs for overall second in the match and Dennis Corry had 13lbs 8ozs, again from Main Lake, to finish in third place.
Many thanks go to Jason for use of the lakes and for his Christmas hospitality. Here’s wishing a Merry Christmas to all S&HAA members (and to BV workers!) and good fishing in 2021.
Regards & thanks,
