Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 22/7/18
The Old Lake is in good form leading up to the 24-hour Pairs Carp Match this Sunday, producing plenty of fish, mostly upper doubles with a sprinkling of 20s.
Andy Wiltshire, from Reigate, did a 48-hour session on peg 2 and landed 17 to 22 lb on Urban Bait Nutcracker boilies, using PVA bags of free offerings and loosefed pellets.
And Richard Bray had four carp, also to 22 lb and also a mirror, on an overnighter at peg 75, on 22 mm NashBait Candy Crush boilies.
There are still tickets left for the Old Lake’s Pairs Carp Match this Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29, the draw for which will take place at 5pm on Saturday, with fishing from 7pm until 6pm on Sunday.
Entry costs £100 per pair, payable on booking, and if 12 teams take part, the winners will collect £300, with £150 for second and £100 for third, £50 going to the captor of the biggest fish. Optional pools of £25 will be available.
Pegs will be drawn as pairs of numbers, giving one favoured swim and one lesser one, as in past years, to ensure even distribution of hotspots. Pairs can decide which angler will fish which of the two swims drawn.
