“Dodd’s Record Breaking Haul”


Remenham Anglers travelled to Alders Farm Fishery

 last weekend

Set in a picturesque valley near the village of Great Brickhill,

 Nr Milton Keynes, Alders Farm Fishery offers a great deal to

 the Match Angler. The spring fed lakes cover a total of 3 and

 a half acres and offer a full variety of sport. As a direct

result of the mineral-rich spring feeds, the venue has built

 a reputation of producing bulging match weights.


Graham Dodd got off to a relatively slow start in this match however very quickly turned this round. Dodd’s initial approach was to feed pellet in open water and whilst this brought the fish in large quantities, they were difficult to catch. A change of tactics were required therefore Dodd swapped to fishing meat down the edge on the pole feeding lightly, the response was instant. Dodd battled with Alders Farm carp in the 3lb – 8lb range with the largest around 10lb to amass an amazing total record breaking weight of 458lb 10oz. Dodd, a renowned and highly respected Matchman for many years, was totally exhausted at the end of the 6 hour match and thought he had sprained both wrists however as realisation of his fantastic achievement set in, the pain disappeared and ecstasy took over. This is a new Club record and not far off the UK Match Fishing Record, so many congratulations to Graham.


Other results on the day, runner up was Dave Whiteman, another local Match Angling Ace, with a very respectable 309lb Carp caught on pellet and corn fished up in the water at 4 meters and a close third place went to John Hobbs with 295lb 14oz caught on similar tactics. Overall, 12 anglers who competed caught and amazing total weight of 2,563lbs averaging over 200lb per man.
