JIMMY 'NEUTRON' GOES ATOMIC AT SMALLFORD
Young Jimmy 'Neutron' is a popular and regular visitor to
Smallford. Seen right with one of his upper doubles from last
year he must have thought all his birthdays had come at once
over the Bank Holiday weekend when he had settled in on Bastard
In addition to the usual interruptions from quality bream and
tench, Jimmy landed four carp, three over the 20lb mark and a
new personal best and possible lake record common of 27-06.
Eight other carp came to club members that weekend.
If you're down there yourself and see Jimmy, stop and say hello.
But make sure you have an excuse ready as, once he starts
talking, it's difficult to get away :)

It's not just
Smallford that's coming on strong. With fresh water and extra
stock in the match lake (pictured below) members are catching
plenty of quality bream and numerous carp, many in double
Generous feeding of
pellet is the current method although plenty of fish are taking
worm, caster and maggot.

On recent visits to Frogmore and Smallford a
number of members were caught leaving rods
unattended. This is against club rules and
these particular members were lucky not to
be facing disciplinary action. Not all had
new rod licenses either. Remember that the
old ones expired at the end of March.
Members are also reminded that, despite the
warm weather in late March, wading at
Riverside, when trout fishing or coarse
fishing, is strictly prohibited. This chap
was apparently struggling with his flies and
was about to try a woolly nobbler. Watch out
for the crayfish mate !!
