REMENHAM Angling Society’s season got under way with a trip to Billhook for the opening leg of the summer series.
Roger Howard scored maximum points on the day as he won this match with 56lb 10oz of carp and skimmers caught mainly close in on the pole with pellet.
In a close second place was Pete Bowles with 55lb 10oz of carp and skimmers all caught on meat on the pole at five metres and on the inside and in third place was Ade Bowles with 49lb 12oz of carp caught on the method feeder with pellet.
Last weekend Cheriton Farm at Farley Hill was the venue for the second leg of the series and it was Graham Dodd who took top spot despite drawing in the unfancied end of the lake.
After a blank first hour-and-a-half Dodd changed to the long pole fishing against the small island and landed good sized carp steadily on maggots and pellet for the remainder of the match to weigh in a total of 128lb 6oz.
In second place was Dick Shillitto with 106lb 6oz of small carp caught on the pole at 13 metres with pellet and in third place was Pete Bowles with 100lb of carp caught on the pole at five metres with meat.
Section winners were Mark Bowerman with 99lb 6oz and Paul Howard with 76lb 12oz.
