2nd Steve Jackson. 59lb 11oz
3rd Geoff Brierley. 59lb 2oz
4th Nigel Fielder. 58lb 7oz

The last of the close season 'Knock Up' matches at Top Barn was a very wet affair but probably the closest finish this year with 5 anglers all in with a shout at the final weigh in.Jason Ford took top spot from his favourite peg on the point with carp caught mainly in the margins on method feeder. Steve Jackson was runner up for the second week running from the life buoy peg. Steve's catch again featured some very large carp caught in the margin next to the fallen tree. Geoff Brierley was just ounces behind in third place from the middle of the long bank. Nigel Fielder and Adam Vaughan also placed 50lb plus weights on the scales from pegs by the car park and middle of the long bank respectively.

The next outing for Willow Creek members is the opening day of the season 'knock up' on the river at Seckley. The draw will be held on the bank at midday. Hopefully the rain this weekend should not affect the river levels too much.

2nd Steve Jackson. 67lb 10oz

3rd Geoff Brierley. 60lb 2oz

4th Adam Vaughan. 53lb 0oz
10 fished around the point on a bright and sunny but also very windy day. We shared the pool with another large match for the second week running and despite many fish clearly spawning, weights were very much improved on last week.

Reigning Bewdley Festival champion Phil Baker took full advantage of the point peg and comfortably took top spot with a catch of quality carp to 11lb 2oz. Phil caught on meat and pellet method feeder tactics and incredibly landed every fish he hooked. Runner up Steve Jackson also had a net of large fish from the life buoy peg next to the large bush at the far end of the lake on similar tactics. Geoff Brierley was third from the first peg next to the car park taking smaller carp on method feeder with a couple on the waggler when the wind eased.
Adam Vaughan then led a string of good back up weights from a peg in the middle of the long bank.
There is one more match at Top Barn next week.
Meet and draw on the bank at 9.00am
We will then be returning to the river for an afternoon match on the opening day of the season Tuesday 16th June. Contact Jason Ford to confirm time and location of draw for the river match.

3rd Adam Vaughan. 31lb 15oz

4th Dean Rutter. 28lb 1oz


10 fished around the point in a chilly breeze. The colder than expected conditions combined with a very busy lake with another 25 plus anglers opposite made for lower than expected returns.
Winner Geoff Brierley was pegged in the small bay just before the point and caught carp mainly on method feeder with a couple on the pellet waggler. Bewdley Tackle's Steve Musset was second from the peg on the left hand side of the point facing the sticks. Steve also caught his fish on method feeder tactics. Adam Vaughan was close behind in third from a peg facing the long bank.

10 fished along the roadside and long bank in bright sunny conditions. The final weigh in was a tight affair with Geoff Brierley just clinching top spot from the second peg on the roadside bank. Geoff took mainly small carp on method feeder with 6mm pellet and crucially a couple of larger fish from the margins on meat in the final stages. Nigel Fielder fishing on the next peg on the landing stage adjacent to the car park also caught mainly small carp on method feeder with pellets and meat. There were only ounces in the fight for third with Chris Taylor just pipping Dean Rutter who had a number of large carp to 11lb in his catch. Both Chris and Dean caught on method feeder and were pegged on the long bank under the trees.
