The rain from the weekend had stopped when the draw was taking place at 9.00am but by lunchtime the heavens had opened. The rest of the week seems bit hit and miss with Tuesday forecast rain and Wednesday and Thursday looking to brighten up (fingers crossed).

It’s the final day of the Ladies Festival and the week has been great fun, the girls have been in high spirits and the big weights have been pouring in.

The weather took a turn for the worst as the rain set in, that mixed with the warm temperature made it very muggy and uncomfortable, but that didn’t affect the quality of the fishing.

The points have been really unpredictable, being top one day and bottom the next, making it almost impossible to guess who the overall winner would be. But I’m pleased to announce in first place was Leanne Knott with an overall weight of 289lb 13oz and very closely behind in second place was Gaynor Mills with 233lb 3oz and in third place Melanie Bates had an overall weight of 190lb 6oz.

Well done ladies! A big thank you to Walls Sollero for once again sponsoring the festival All the ladies who entered the festival went home with a prize including cash for the top 3.

Thank you to all the Ladies who entered for supporting this event and making it what it is, I hope you had as good a week as we all did in the Fishing Lodge.

Cheers, Lorna
