Bungay Tennis Club happy with life

16:27 16 February 2012

A GOOD season in the Lowestoft and District League was reported at the annual meeting of Bungay Tennis Club.

Club captain Juliet Whyte said the team finished a creditable third in the third division with herself, Ian Forder, Craig Frost and Sarah Watts and others when necessary. In the coming season Juliet looks to include others whose standard has risen greatly this season. As well as the Lowestoft League mixed team, Bungay will also re-enter a men’s team in the City League in Norwich.

Treasurer Paul Cunningham reported the club was reasonably placed financially, but with fundraising ideas discussed – including a sponsored cycle ride, stall at the Diamond Jubilee and the annual quiz set for October 13.

Winter play is Monday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Saturday summer play starts April.

Officers elected: president Terry Reeve; chairman Ian Forder; captain Juliet Whyte; secretary Sarah Watts; treasurer Paul Cunningham; City League captain Jamie; tournament committee Paul Cunningham, Juliet Whyte, Ian Forder; committee member Craig Frost plus two others; BDSA representatives Ian Forder, Paul Cunningham, Juliet Whyte.

Sam Honeywood caught this fine-looking 17lb 1oz pike on a smelt dead bait. Sam was at a stretch of river in Norwich nice and early and managed to catch this fish within the hour. His friend James Hubbard managed to land one around 9lb as well.

So, what was so special for you anglers fishing in the Norfolk Broads and rivers during 2015?

The Quay kept to its up and down face at Beccles, sometimes in five or six swims really good fishing, making 30lbs of mainly small bream, but 40 yards away only a moderate bag. Certainly the most prolific area has been sitting down where the boat is behind on the grass, or nearer to the Harbourmasters building when the tide has fallen away. This week quite a few good catches came from out on the waggler with the skimmers tending to wait until the bait to build up before coming in. Perch are the bonus and to a good size in the swims where only the odd skimmer passes through stopping to feed up nearer the river end taking a whole worm amidst the cupped choppy feed. Still craving for the colour to provoke a feeding frenzy the roach shoals roam the river never seemingly settling long anywhere as pike packs push them around at speed.
