Wintons Fish-In September 2019
Well ladies and gentlemen, another fish in has been and gone, this one always feels like and end of term party as the season is slowly drawing to a close.
First of all a huge thank you to Wintons Fishery, as usual, for graciously inviting us to use their wonderful Mallard lake and associated facilities, to host our event. Thanks Mo, Paula, and the whole Wintons team.
The draw was done, and as is by the very nature of a draw some people were very happy with their pegs, some less so, as we all know the cats do move around and lots have come out from the less favoured pegs.
First fish fell to Paul “Shaggy” Robinson with this cat of 51 lb and some small change.
Nice work Paul, and on your first chuck too !
Not to be outdone Tony Ellis who was sharing the double swim chipped in with this one at 53 lb
Well done Tony, who also had a 47lb fish and a small kitten on Sunday morning.
Djorge Karadjordjevic also managed to winkle out this blank avoiding fish of 35lb from peg 20 on the final morning.
Nice work “Alphabet” !
We also have some PB’s to report. The highlight being this incredibly long fish of 82 lb 12oz taken by Jimmy Bryan from peg 11.
Jimmy commented “Had a great time this weekend at Winton’s. Got 2 new PB’s!!! I love this place! ❤
Had 3 cats: 81lbs 12oz(PB), 42lbs and 41lbs. And 1 Common carp: 35lbs.(PB)
Thanks to Darral Collins and Andrew Eglon for their helping netting and photographs! 👍🏾
Can’t wait to fish it again! Good to see Mo too! She’s so Sweet! 😁 Thanks to Paula and the rest of the team for providing a lovely venue to enjoy. Long may it continue!!! 🎣🎣🎣”. Nice one Jimmy.
Ian Still in peg 8 also beat his PB with a fish at 52 lb.
Well done Ian, congratulations.
Darral Collins in peg 7 was hauling as usual, again. He commented “Great fishin at Wintons the weekend managed 6 cats 75.4, 61.8, 34.8, 26, 23 & 15lb good to meet some new faces great bunch of lads also good to see some new pb’s thank you to Ian still for help netting and weighing 👍🏻👍🏻”
Great stuff “Catman” !
Myself and Phil Da Beard struggled in pegs 3 and 1 respectively. It was very quiet for me until Sunday morning, when the weather conditions became much more Alan, and I had my first two proper runs. Both resulting in the fish letting go. Phil lost four fish due to a combination of cut offs, hook pulls, and one snagging him up in the challenging peg 1, but that’s catting.
In closing I would just like to say all the feedback I have received has been incredibly positive, lots of hints and tips passed on, which is how our group rolls, and It was also great to finally meet Stretton Honor who dropped into peg 3 behind me, I trust old “silver balls” has better luck than me.
Please keep an eye out on our Facebook page if you would like an opportunity to fish a future event as they do sell out quickly.
Tight lines all.
