Family Fishing

Brilliant turn out for the third annual ‘Family Fishing’ day at Bestwood Duck Ponds. Over 15 families arrived this morning to have a great day on Pond 1 and the Richmond Canal. What a change in the weather. How lucky were we? We had a break from fishing at lunch to refuel with a free BBQ. before returning to the bank side. Top weight was from Ollie & Roo with a mixed net of crucians, roach, perch, skimmer bream and a barbel for 6lbs 5ozs from thr Richmond Canal. Runners up for the second year running were the Jarmoluk family with 4lbs 14ozs from peg 25 0n Pond 1. Third place went to Sam with a nice carp late in the match for 4lbs 2ozs from peg 40 on Pond 1. Working in partnership with the Polish Anglers Association and the Angling Trust ‘Building Bridges’ initiative we had another fantastic day.
