EoH Charity Fancy Dress Match

August 13, 2018


The last day of June was the date for the Earl of Harrington's annual charity, fancy dress match on Allestree Lake. This year I dressed as a Frenchman, complete with a string of garlic and as always there were some great outfits. After weeks of hot, dry weather the fish weren't very active. A few nice Carp basked in the shallow water not far from my swim, but I couldn't tempt them away from their morning sun bathe. After coming 4th last year, helped by a nice Tench, I only caught a Roach and a Perch this year, but as always it was great to attend the event and be out on the bank.


My other session this month was an afternoon-evening session at Woodrows a week before the charity match. I did fairly well, landing some nice Rudd and Perch. It had been another hot day, but it cooled down a little in the afternoon leaving a pleasant evening for my partner and I to enjoy our picnic.
