FLE Fishery - fishing match report - K2 Open, Sat 1st Feb 2014


With all of the Top Mouth Gudgeon now gone from the FLE Fishery and the canals open once again it has been really nice to have our regular match anglers back fishing at FLE. We have also seen many new faces coming and seeing just how good the fishing is here and we have a feeling that 2014 is going to be an amazing year!

FLE Fishery

Due to all the fish having been hand picked and put back into the canals after their time in the Top Lake we now have 4 canals stocked just how we want them.

On Saturday we had 22 anglers visit FLE and book canals 2, 3 and 4.  It was nice to see one of our Team FLE members back on the box after taking a break for the summer from match fishing and in true style he came back and did the team proud!  This is the first year that FLE has put together a match team to compliment our successful Carp Team and there is a real buzz around the place at the moment.

Another angler to mention is the ever dominant Pete ‘Kingfisher’ Newman.  Once again he showed his class in a strong field of anglers and showed why he is the ‘Kingfisher’.

One last mention has to go to the father and son combo of the Mayers.  Both came second in their section and since we have opened both have shown that they know how to bank a carp or two from FLE.

If you would like to book a canal for your match group the cost is £50 per canal and all bookings need to be made via the FLE website.

Winning tactics:

Most anglers chose to fish fairly similar tactics and those that did best fished long pole to the far bank.  Bait for most was maggot which in the winter is a hard bait to beat and by searching the swim by lifting and dropping the bait it allowed anglers to find the pockets of fish held up in the far bank.

Remember fish light and don’t feed much in the winter, the fish slow right down and do not need to consume as much as they do in the summer months, feed to much at the start of the day and you could shoot yourself in the foot!
