Allen holds the key to success in club match

WAVENEY VALLEY: Harleston Wortwell & District juniors fished a match in their Bottle Pit and it produced a fine 5lb 12oz tench for young Lewis Allen – and there are plenty a pound or so bigger coming out too.

Big bags of carp from the Middle Pit of fish weighing up to 16lb have not been out of the ordinary and totalling we'll over 150lb in many instances for a day's outing.

Harleston Club recently donated �50 to the Bungay Cherry Tree AC's Holiday for a Hero fund, which now stands at around �650 with more promised on the cards from other sources too, including Gipping Valley Angling Club who contributed �25.

Angling Direct at Beccles announced that as from July 1, they will be having a late opening evening on a Friday when staff will be providing service and information on local venues at the counter up until 8 pm.

Car Parking should be a lot easier than during the day at that time and there is plenty to browse over, especially in the upstairs section of poles and rods. Manager Jeannette recently demonstrated her versatility with not only some good weights from the Yare but coming ninth in the Angling Trust's Ladies National on a far removed canal.

Cherry Tree Club fishery officer Geoff Kerman took a trip down river to Ellingham catching the falling tide and landed a 3lb rainbow trout along with his roach dace and chub on the whip after a lively struggle.

Shipmeadow has started to produce with several 5lb chub and some 7lb bream weighed in from the bend below Roast Beef Corner.
