Sherwood Forest Fishery (Holmedale Lake) – 31st May 2020

  1. Greg Wain               86lb  3oz
  2. Charlotte Baker      80lb  9oz
  3. Mark Baker             75lb  8oz

This was the club’s first match on Holmedale for at least ten years. It was also our first club match of the season following the lockdown as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

A total of 21 RoTAS warriors turned up and enjoyed being back out on the bank in the lovely sunny weather. The draw had taken place the night before over Zoom, which saw 13 of our club members tune it. Overall, the venue fished well and produced a close-run thing for the top four positions. Greg Wain took top spot with 86lb 3oz and also knocked Mark out the KO Cup in the first round. Greg also managed to prevent Charlotte from winning her first club match! She put in a great performance, catching throughout the day on the hybrid feeder. Although a little disheartened not to win, Charlotte was smug in the knowledge that she beat her husband Mark, yet again!

A mention should also go to Craig Rumford and Tom Skelton who have re-joined the club after a 15 year break – welcome back lads.
