Shelt Hill Farm & Fishery

Woodborough Annual Fishing, Thursday 8th – Sunday 11th July 2021.

Thank you to the Marshals S & PW & JB for their friendly welcome and the organising and running of the Rally. Special thanks to SP & SW? for their excellent catering for the Saturday evening social. This was a huge success and due to the glorious evening sun, we were all able to eat and drink outside.

15 units attended, (the largest for a long time) pitched in a ‘U’ shape. The grassy site was well maintained and level. The ground was soft in places due to the recent rain, but this caused no problems.

Throughout the Rally the local Barn Owls, Kites, and Buzzards were a magnificent sight soaring on the thermals up to great heights.

Within 10 minutes walk were the local Pubs ‘The Nags Head’ and ‘Four Bells’ and having visited ‘The Nags Head’ for Friday lunch we can highly recommend for good food at great prices.

Saturday day was focused on the Angling Competition. Again, another warm sunny day albeit dark overhead on occasions. The results are as follows:

Heaviest net –    Ladies – SW with 13lbs 8oz       Gents – RS with 46lbs 5oz

Heaviest Fish –   PR with 7lbs 1oz                           Match cup went to RS.

Pool. 1st – RS .    2nd – PR.                                            Total Weight 205lbs.

Presentations were at ‘Flag’ on Sunday at 11:00.
