A host of personal bests reported
AN EXCELLENT week of catches saw many anglers who visited Town Parks Fishery returning for more sport.
Both lakes fished well with many anglers reporting personal bests as well as heavy bags!
The top Match Lake produced numerous 100lb-plus bags from various pegs, although the dam wall pegs produced the most constant sport.
Carp to the 12lb-mark fell to pellet offered mid-water from the dam with some anglers taking up to 15 carp an hour!
