Sport hotting up nicely in good weather; COARSE ANGLING.


IT is a good time to be a coarse angler! The warmer conditions have resulted in an massive increase in sport and catches across the region with excellent nets and quality fish being reported!

Killingworth Lake, an often ignored local water, has shown its true potential by producing a great catch of bream.

Will Andrip put in the research and effort for a session which ended with six good bream - the best three weighing in at 9lb 6oz, 9lb 12oz and 10lbs.

Betso Benson enjoyed his first session of the year at Dissington Pond.

Targeting the ide, Betso fished single white maggot to take fish of 4lb 10oz, 4lb 12oz, 5lb 3ozs and finally a colossal catch of 5lb 8ozs!

Darren Watson endured arm- aching action at Eden Grange when he fought and eventually landed a cracking carp of 20lb 10ozs on a pole!

The first of the BWAC Senior Citizen / Disabled Series on Dissington Pond was won by Roy Small with 3lb 15ozs, followed by Steve Freer with 2lb 13 oz and Allan Cowan with 2lb 7ozs.

The latest three-hour Open on Tuesday at Eden Grange saw Tony Dowson take the win with 34lb 8ozs.

Paul Neave ended up second with 32lb 11oz ahead of Tim Michale and Danny Cunningham, who both recorded 24lb 10ozs.

Steve Woods won the Knock-Up at Whittle Dene last Sunday with 22lb 7ozs.

Sean Lister was second with 20lb 8oz and Chris Gowling followed with 19lb 6oz.
