Day 1 - 2022 May Bank Holiday Festival (Silvers, Willow & Canal Lakes)


So day one of the festival and we arrived to an early morning frost and then high pressure . The sun soon burnt through but the fishing was moody at times with everyone having to work hard for it.

Some really close weights today on all lakes and there was all to play for with two more days to go.

Highlight today and fair play to Simon Denmark, at the weigh in his carp net slipped off the peg and disappeared under water, he was down to his boxers in no time and straight on after it. I think his comment was , I’ve worked hard for them and not losing them now.


Well done to all section winners today,

Day 2 - 2022 May Bank Holiday Festival (Silvers, Willow & Canal Lakes)


Day two of our festival today.

With no overnight frost, no wind and a mild overcast day the weather gods were on side for a very positive day

Draw complete and everyone was keen to get going, in fact most were set up ready to go with 30 minutes to spare.

Whistle blown and the bites were almost instant with poles and nets shipping in and out all over the place. We were definitely in for a solid day.


A new lake record in the Canal from Stuart Thornton with 152lb 1oz and good to see Marv Price break the 100 on silvers with 106lb 1oz, Ash Welsh almost bit the 100 on Willow with 92lb 15oz , great angling gents.
