Open Juniors Match – Ellingham Lake – 5 August 2022

Ten young Anglers turned up for the Junior Event on Friday 5th August.

It turned out to be very keenly contested.
Ethan started off well and was definitely ahead at the half way point but William kept his nerve and a late run of fish meant he just pipped him at the final whistle.
Will managed to catch throughout the morning and came home third, just!

First, William, 19lb 13oz
Second, Ethan, 17lb 7oz
Third, Will, 15lb 14oz.

In total the ten young anglers caught just over 100lb. A great result! In addition all the young Anglers demonstrated patience and commitment to the task in hand. Well done to all!

A special mention for Jared, one of the youngest Anglers, who decided to fish for silvers rather than Carp, he recorded 46 Roach and Perch, just short of his target of 50.











These events cannot go ahead without help and support. So a few thanks are required.
Firstly to all the parents for ferrying the young Anglers to and from the Event, thanks also to Dads and Grandad, Ben, David, Julian and Malcolm, who stayed for the morning to help not only their own boys but also some of the others.


Thanks to Club Chairman Glenn Shiplee and LVP Dave Gladwell for help and support during the Event.

Many thanks to all Club members who donated tackle prizes, particularly, Will, Alan, Andy, Dave and John (apologies to any I’ve missed).

All the prizes were greatly appreciated and I’m sure will now get a lot more use.

Special thanks to club members who offered help particularly Rikki who turned up and spent the morning helping some of the less experienced young Anglers. I’m confident catch rates increased as a result of Rikki’s suggestions.

Special thanks to the Guys at Avenue Angling, Jeannette at Angling Direct (Beccles) and Julie and Team at Crossways of Ellingham for their continued support and generosity.

And lastly thanks to the ten young Anglers who turned up, a comment made by more than one of the Adults there ‘it’s great to see so many youngsters on the bank enjoying themselves!
