Today’s match result from Orchard Farm Lake 6 and Random Pairs trophy.
15 anglers fished today’s match on a very busy match lake with every peg taken which kept the weights down compared to this usually prolific venue.
In first place was myself with 72 lb of carp and F1s mainly caught fishing shallow on the pole.
Second place and with his best match result to date was Gary Bushell who caught on the feeder and weighed in 69lb and in 3rd place just missing out on his hat trick of match wins was Billy Hargreaves with 65lb 15oz.
Just when Gary was looking forward to a quiet drive home having beaten travelling partner Billy, the Random Pairs draw paired Pilly with Ray Brown who’s combined weight of 130lb 14 oz was comfortable enough for them to take the Random Pairs trophy and I think that’s Billy’s first ever trophy since he turned his hand to match fishing.
The next match is at Sams Lake on July 23rd.
