DAVID Bradley landed his first ever salmon whilst fishing the Rushes on the Warwick Hall beats of the River Eden last Wednesday his fish caught on a fly weighed 13½lb.
There were two other salmon caught at Warwick Hall last Wednesday the first captured by Paul Hurst from the Otter Stone weighed 12lb and was captured on a fly. The second was taken by David Bamford who fished a flying C in the Gravel Bed to land an 8 pounder.
Upstream on the Yorkshire Fly Fishers water George Nobblett landed a brace of salmon on Monday, his first a 14 pounder was taken in the Gravel Bed. George’s second a 12 pounder was landed at the Otter Stone both fish were taken on a small Scottish Flea. Also on the YFF water there have been reports of the capture of a 7lb sea trout during the last week.
Thirteen anglers fished Friday night’s CADCAC match at Crofton Lake in first place with four bream some roach and perch was Bernard Irving with 21lb 14oz.
Bernard fished peg 5 and all his fish were caught on the pole. There was a tie for second place with club Chairman Dave Gillies and Carlisle’s Sean Corless both weighing in 19lb 3oz.
Dave fished peg 20 and caught bream, perch, roach and a good carp. Sean fished peg 29 and caught bream perch roach. Emma Humleby, nine, recently landed a 6lb 4oz bream using float fished maggot. Samantha Johnson, seven, caught a 5lb bream on peg one using a five-metre whip with two red maggots on the hook, it was her very first bream.
And then it was Courteney Johnson’s turn. Courteney, eight, also caught her first bream using the same whip on peg 45 again using red maggots on the hook.
Carlisle and District Coarse Angling Club members are reminded that the second match of the CADCAC Summer League takes place at Whins Pond on Sunday and judging by recent evening match results at the fishery near Penrith it could be a very interesting match.
Last Tuesday the younger anglers continued their domination of the King of Whins League.
Nick Oliver, 16, drew the ‘snowball’ peg number 11 and landed a large bream plus two smaller ones on spicy shrimp and prawn boilies for a winning weight of 11lb 12½oz and a very handy pay out and the points earned on the night moved him up to fourth in the league.
Barry McKenzie drew peg 15 and targeted tench on his own special boilies. Barry landed 3 fine specimens for 11lb 12oz just half an ounce behind Nick. Phil Ramsden aged 16 third with 8lb 02oz, Phil picked up four points, which takes him to the top of the league.
Mike Clusker netted 5lb 6oz for fourth, Kelvin Taylor was fifth with 5lb 5oz and Glen Martin was sixth with 5lb.
This Tuesday 16 anglers fished, GCSE exams accounting for some notable absentees amongst the younger league leaders.
Barry McKenzie drew peg 27 and fishing a pop-up boilie 30 yards out he landed a carp of 11lb 7oz and his first win of the year. Mike Clusker drew the field side once again and fished his favourite feeder and maggot combination landing a bream and a tench for second place with 9lb 2oz.
On the sea angling scene there have been reports of school bass being taken along the Cumbrian coastline as well as cod to 4lb.
