  • Cumbria Coarse Anglers Broom series - leg 1

    44 anglers fished at Broom Fisheries today in 4 sections of 11 and nobody blanked. The bright sun was back again, but nevertheless there were some people getting some action all day. Favoured baits today were maggot, casters and white corn. A lot of roach and some very nice carp were caught. I also saw some good chub and bream. The prize money for the first round of this 6 round series went to:

    Section 1: Queensbury Water
    1st: M Pattison - 17lbs 2ozs - peg 47
    2nd: G Yardley Jnr - 16lbs 10ozs - peg 1
    3rd: C Healey - 4lbs 5ozs - peg 34

    Section 2: Bruce's Acre
    1st: D Lear - 17lbs 2ozs - peg 30
    2nd: S Hunter - 6lbs 8ozs - peg 18
    3rd: M Relph - 4lbs 4ozs - peg 23

    Section 3: The Square
    1st: K. Aitken - 19lbs 12ozs - peg 42
    2nd: E. Weed - 10lbs 8ozs - peg 45
    3rd: P. Jouce - 9lbs 0ozs - peg 38

    Section 4: The Canal
    1st: Ian Whitson - 14lbs 14ozs - peg 8
    2nd: A Murphy - 6lbs 15ozs - peg 4
    3rd: D Francis - 4lb 15ozs - 18

    Kevin Aitken, pictured below with his wining catch, was pleased with his win. He bought a new pole last week ( Preston Innovations Genis 2G 10 ) and this was his first match with it.

    Kevin told me that he caught most of his fish just below the surface with a single red maggot on a size 20 hook. His bag was mainly roach to about 12ozs, but he did have a bream of about 3lbs. Kevin also spent some time stalking a pair of ghosties between 4 and 6 lbs who were flitting in and out of the reeds, but without success. As it turned out, he did not need them to win and he went home with a big smile on his face.

    Well done Kevin and we look forward to seeing you all for the second round on May 13th.

    Best Regards
