TWAPS Orchard Farm Match – Match Results – 1st May 2022 – Points Match

Match No. 4 at Orchard Farm, Lake 6

On Sunday 1st May 18 anglers fished Orchard Fram, Lake 6, which is our biggest turnout of the season so far.

I would also like to welcome Richard Higgins who fished his first match with us today and hope to see him again with us.

The match was won by myself with 77lb 11oz of carp caught on method feeder tight to the gap in the rushes on the island. In second place was Paul James on his first match of the season caught 63lb 8oz of carp on the feeder to the the island. In third place was the busiest man in the world on the day, Dael Hall who caught 54lb 10oz of skimmers and a few carp shallow on the pole with maggots.

Also I would like to give a massive well done to Jim Beaconsfield (the “Happy Wanderer”) who worried the other anglers by staying in his peg all day and catching a good bag of carp.

And finally I’m sorry for the tightness of some pegs yesterday at Orchard Farm.
