THE result of the Cornfield Farm Open was: 1, Dave.Whittaker (59-1-0); 2, Mick.Naylor (39-2-0); 3, P. Holmes (24-6-0).

The weather has been quite wet, but this didn’t stop Paul Rose having a few hours on Rowley Lake pike fishing.

He may have got wet, but he landed a fine 10lb pike.

Anyone fancy a day’s fishing on Hoddlesden Reservoir or Jumbles Reservoir near Bolton? You can now buy a day ticket at Mack’s Tackle in Burnley, price £4. These are two waters run by Darwen Loyals.

The AGM for Pendle Burnley and District AA will take place on Monday, November 7th at the Burnley League Club on Richard Street, from 8 p.m.

Anyone with proposals, please get them into Mack’s Tackle by October 31st.

You must have a seconder and both turn up on the night to hear it discussed.

All Pendle members are welcome on the night, so let’s hear your voice!
