The season got of to a fine start, for those who had it the breakfast was excellent, the weather forecasters got it wrong as the expected rain didn't turn up which is a bit of a change for a Reel People match, and to put the icing on the cake I won the match, which is a bit of a novelty these day's

Special thanks to Shane and Craig for doing the weigh in.

Yet another fine day weather wise and a very close fought match between the first three, Dave Crowson obviously got fed up with looking at his watch so he dropped it in the lake, along came his knight in shining armour (me) who rolled up his sleeve and got the watch first dip, pity the bloody carp weren't as responsive for me, onwards and upwards to the May Day match at Lords Lane in a fortnight.

Special thanks to the Float Fish Farm owners and staff for doing the weighing in

Once again we enjoyed an un Reel People weather day, a slight breeze and warm with it, mind you we had the inevitable whirlwind which apparently took Robs top kit for a swim, thanks to Andy Raspberry for rescuing it. Thanks to Dena, Florence and all the helpers for the warm reception, free tea and coffee and for weighing in.

Well I can only put it down to climate change,four matches fished and no rain,all day sunshine and a gentle breeze,which for Float Fish Farm is a miracle in itself and with two weights over one hundred pounds what more could one want,thanks are due to the Float Fish staff for weighing us in as usual and looking forward to fishing the new lake there in September.Brian Ogden came to have a look at us on his way back from Duxford,but as he was flying at 4,000 feet we must have looked pretty small !.
