It was the second visit of the year to Kingsland and the “Silvers” lake was the destination this time around. Warm sun, light showers, heavy rain, windy, calm, fair to say most weather conditions were witnessed. Whilst the lake is called silvers and there is an exceptional stock of Roach, Rudd, Bream, small Carp and Tench. It also holds some really good sized and aggressive fighting carp. All Twenty one pegs on the lake have very large well constructed platforms making for comfortable fishing.
Anglers were fishing for the Dennis Clarke Cup with current holder Ray Morland not available. Ray winning at the same venue last year with 176lbs 15 oz was the highest weight of the year. This trophy was donated by Nobby Clarke who had a tackle shop in Deeping St James.
Ray Torrington dominated the match with an impressive 127lbs and 14 oz. Fishing the margins with cat meat and spam from peg 9. Second place to Mike Mosely with 91 lbs 9 oz from peg 15. Mike fished the method feeder with micros and 8mm pellet tight to the marginal reeds (although he switched to pellet on the bomb for the last hour because he ran out of Micros !). Third place went to Phil Price with 75 lbs 8 oz fishing face on to the wind from peg 7. Phil’s approach was method feeder and Wafter.
