For the third successive week the weather was bitterly cold with a strong NE wind driving down the lake, so once again the match was fished on “the deeps”.

In spite of the continued bitterly cold weather, there were fish caught from all areas of the match, which was fished on the “Deeps” And “Pump” banks of the lake.

The first midweek “NISA Feeders” Open match at Meadowlands on the magnificent Lambsdown Lake was a success in spite of the awful weather, when anglers awoke to a temperature of -3C, which rose to around 6C in the afternoon. Amazingly, in spite of this and the fact that the wind kept switching directions, there were fish caught throughout the match length (pegs 1 to 31).

The first match this year (after “Lockdown”) and the final NISA Feeders open match at Makins Fishery went off very successfully with 25 anglers fishing over three lakes.   Unfortunately the weather failed to co-operate, and after the previous day’s blistering sun, it was a bitterly cold and overcast day with a strong NE wind.  At least it remained dry.
