Weights rise with weather

The weights for the Cornfield Farm open rose a bit due to the warmer weather of the last few days.

The result was: 1, I. Fisk (72-11-0); 2, J. Clapham (43-4-0); 3, J. Smith (35-14-0).

Head Bailiff Billy Clo was on Foulridge Reservoir last Sunday and reported that a angler had taken eight nice bream, the smallest weighing 6lb.

And there were reports of another angler taking a nice net of roach, weighing 20lb on Walverden.

The annual AGM for Pendle, Burnley and District anglers takes place on Monday at the Burnley League club at 8 p.m., all members welcome on the night.

May I remind you that any angler using two rods must have one on an audible alarm, and they must not let any non-member fish one of his rods.

If caught doing so, both will be banned from the water.

Also, any non-member wishing to fish two rods must pay £5 for each rod, and no fishing from in between pegs - only a permanent peg is to be used.

CHRIS Oliver took top spot in last Sunday’s trophy match at Town House.

His whopping 64lb 12oz catch was enough to sink Rob McKendry (43lb 4oz) to second place. Pete Mottram’s 29lb catch was enough to claim third while Mick Clegg reeled in 24lb 12oz to finish fourth from 11 members.

The final match of the series is on Sunday, November 13th on Croft. Ring to book on. Meanwhile, the club’s AGM will be held at Todmorden Working Men’s Social Club on Wednesday at 7-30 p.m.

Items on the agenda include banning barbed hooks, banning members from taking their dogs with them while fishing, limiting keep nets to 50lb and increasing subs.
