Match fishing has finally resumed and many local venues have opened up to competitions.

Fen Lakes in Metheringham had a busy weekend with matches on both lakes.

The Sleaford Legionnaires fished fen lake with carp few and far between but lots of silvers feeding.

Results: 1 Elliot Panell 46lb 13oz, 2 Taza Upton 23lb 6oz, 3 Graham Massum 21lb 9oz.

Meg lake hosted the open match with plenty of bites to be had despite a harsh frost.

Results: 1 Stephen Garrard 87lb, 2 Andy Mitchell 57lb 9oz, 3 Ray Pauley 46lb 4oz.

Open Matches are held every Thursday. Click here for details.

Angling is going through a boom with a huge increase in licence sales during 2020.

Sleaford tackle dealer Fishing Evolution has responded by doubling in size with a full refit.

Lots of tips and advice as well as the latest gear are available at the Hadley Road store.
