Lillies for Strines, Bowden & Disley Dam!

A small band of DNMAC volunteers gave up a day’s fishing to retrieve a quantity of lilies to be replanted at Strines, Bowden and Disley Dam.

These plants will hopefully add fishing features, protection for fish from avian predators and add a bit of colour to your fishing surroundings!

Match Results

Thursday 8th May Peak Forest Canal, Furness Vale Marina
On a very wet and windy evening the weather felt more autumnal than late spring but a fair number of dedicated matchmen turned out for the match.

Mat Robinson draw the Golden Peg but again it rolled over as he struggled to find any of the canals larger perch on his chopped worm tactics. Instead the winner on the day was Darren Blaydon, who fished bread punch, to catch two nice skimmers and small roach.

1st Darren Blaydon 3lb 2oz
2nd Steve Rowe 1lb 12oz
Tuesday 13th May Watford Lodge
The weather for this match was a vast improvement on the previous weeks canal fixture and for some the fishing was as well! Chris Simpson had the Golden Peg on a good draw and luckily made the most of it fishing off peg 1.

Fishing worm over loose groundbait he caught a nice bag made up of mainly small tench at 6 meters and took the honours to net £80.

2nd Graham Howe 4lb 5oz
