Q10 Thorney Weir

Eliminator - 26/07/2019

This is a beautiful lake of 17.5 acres lined with mature trees and offering a great many features to fish to, including islands both large and small, sunken barges, plateaus, gravel bars, and weed beds.

Four carp have been banked over the 40lb mark with ‘Chubbers’ (published in Carp Talk, May 2000) regularly weighing in at 46lb+, and there are at least 100 thirties in the lake with some fantastic looking scaled fish among these. The big Ghostie has been banked twice that we know of at over 37lb. All of which are backed up by a large head of twenties and many double figure carp.

Pre Match Report

Post Match Report

It was nice to be back at this popular Colne Valley carp water. This ended up being another match where the fish were evenly spread across the lake. The top three pairs had 10 fish between them. The following seven pairs had a single fish each and only 2 pairs blanked.

Chris Holmes and Neil Rivers took the honours in this final qualifier of the pairs competition with five fish for 73lb 6oz. They went into an early lead which they kept for the duration of the match. Next camr Karl Palmer and Liam Morgan with two fish for 46lb 4oz. Third place went to Thomas Bottyan and Istvan Steierlein with three fish for 41lb 15oz. The next seven pairs all registered valuable BCC ranking points by catching a single fish apiece. Again another tight competition where it was still wide open going into the Sunday morning, however on this occasion the Sunday morning proved fish-less for all competitors.

The top three go through to the Barston final on August bank holiday weekend.
