This week we welcomed Dave Tucker and Alan Gosnell’s group from Essex and London and the W Mids. They all arrived in our local town the previous night so that they could arrive to us all refreshed, but sadly this didn’t happen as they found a local restaurant/bar and attempted to drink it dry! They were not a pretty sight on Saturday morning…. you will learn lads!!
Dave and Alan were part of the group of lads that helped us in the construction of the new swims earlier in the year, so they were itching to try them out.
Dave was to celebrate his birthday during his stay and what a week it turned out to be for him! He had 9 fish in total including 3 x 50’s (inc new 58.01 PB common), 1 x 40, 1 x 30, and 4 x 20’s.
Alan also had an amazing session when he managed to join the Sixty club with a mirror at 60.02 and he also had 2 x 40’s, and 2 x 30’s. Well done to the pair of you but richly deserved after all the hard work.
Top rod for the week was Gary Pymont (Essex) who managed 12 fish, though no big girls he did have 3 x 40’s, 4 x 30’s, and 5 x 20’s.
Steve Miller had his best ever result at Moulinots with an 8 fish haul including, 1 x 40, 4 x 30’s, and 3 x 20’s, well done to you both and we will be trying your choosen bait at the lake in the coming months.
Moulinot regular Craig Ratcliffe (W Mids) also had 8 fish, 1 x 50, 2 x 40’s,3 x 30’s and 2 x 20’s – another good result for Craig who seems to have the right approach here after struggling on his first few visits to the lake ( although this could have been down to your alcohol intake back then Craig!).
New boy Andy ‘Paddy’ Padmore (Essex) also had a good week with 6 fish including, 1 x 40, 3 x 30’s and 2 x 20’s  – a good result Paddy for a first visit.
Chris Felstead (Essex) returning with the group managed 4 fish including a lovely new PB mirror on Friday afternoon at 54lbs. Chris also had 1 x 40 and 2 x 30’s.
Brian Felton also beat his PB with a 53.00lb mirror, and this was backed up by 4 x 30’s and 1 x 20.
Another newbie Paul Gormley got straight amongst the fish on Saturday afternoon with a new PB at 28.08 lbs, this was beaten on the Monday afternoon with a 35.05 mirror, sadly these were the only catches for Paul during the week.
Another great week with a 60 banked and 6 x 50’s and 5 new PBs – well done to all of you and see some of you later this year.
