    Weather: Persistent rain throughout the day feeling colder than normal.

    A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured circular arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.
    And as well all know, at the end of the Rainbow is a pot of gold and that is we're you will find the Big Bash Angling Club.

    Interesting fact
    The origin of the idiom “every cloud has a silver lining” is most likely traceable to the year 1634, when John Milton Penned his masque Comus. In it, the quote appears as “Was I deceived or did a sable cloud Turn forth her silver lining on the night?”
    Every Cloud has a Silver Lining means: You can derive some benefit from every bad thing that happens to you.
    Example of use: James Maude Angling Club you come second in a fishing match. Answer: “You see, every cloud has a silver lining.”

    May I start by thanking thirty devoted , loyal and dedicated Anglers who in pursuit of their sport put on a terrifically display of angling at the Sherwood Forest Fishery and Holmedale Lake. A Fishery that continues to produce some fantastic weights week in and week out. A big Thank You to Mick Langton and his team who are always on hand to help our cause to catch. Set in the heart of Sherwood Forest if the fishing doesn't get you then the scenery will.
    Today's match was the return leg of the JM v BB annual gathering of Micky taking monkey drinkers and what a day it turned out to be, the three very important factors that on most fisheries would kill any lake:
    1: Overnight and constant rain throughout the day.
    2: Temperatures falling from 17c down to 9c.
    3: A pressured lake with thirty anglers on it.
    But Holmedale did not disappoint with two ton weights numerous 80lb weights and a list of good backup weights. Thank you Holmedale for a cracking match.
    In his quest to win the champion of champions trophy Gary Summerscales took top weight with 112lb-5oz from peg 34. Well done Gary.
    Always a framer is Andy Waite pegged on four, Andy took the second ton of the day with 100lb-3oz. Well done Andy.
    In form young gun Scott Dibble pegged on 39 weighed in with 88lb-13oz. Well done Scott.

    1st section winner: Terry Wiggins with 86lb-12oz peg 32. Well done Terry.
    2nd section winner: Paul Atton with 85lb-9oz peg 32. Well some Paul.
    3rd section winner: Phil Smedley with 82lb-9oz peg 14. Well done Smed.
    4th section winner: Ian Carr with 81lb-8oz peg 10. Well done Ian.
    5th section winner: Tony Smith with 81lb peg 42. Well done Tony.

    So very well done to all the above, very well done to the Big Bash AC on retaining the trophy. A massive thank you to Nick Heath, Paul Skeldon, Leo Martin, Steve Curtis, Pete Lambert, Scott Dibble, Uncle Tom Cobbly and all. It is team work that makes this event run so smoothly. Thank you all.
