The region is now in full swing as the members pursue some quality coarse fish. Some very good Bream, Tench and Carp have been caught this last month by Dave Greally, Bruce Turnbull, Paul Proctor and Chris Graham. Dave Gardner has had good success on some of the local waters and Mike Bell caught some nice Roach and Rudd at a Lake District venue. Steve Sandiford has been trying his luck down on the River Wye with reasonable success.

The first of the club's annual Summer matches took place during the month. The highly sought after Golden Maggot trophy was contested by eight of the members at a local water. On the day the weather was extremely warm and the fish were not in a cooperative mood. Low weights all round for those who did catch. The winner on the day was Dave Greally who retained the trophy from the previous year.

Our Summer series of matches will be taking place in July and August and we will be reporting on the results of these events in future region updates.
