August the 10th saw the first open match take place on the reservoir since the closure in April and the 38 eager tip anglers were not disappointed.  Marius Vrubliaukausas  won the match from the Garden Centre section with 29kg.

Otley Feeder Festival

Next up was the first of the three day feeder only festivals and the Yorkshire lads’ annual pilgrimage to the venue for the Otley Feeder Festival.  Sensas angler Julian Kendrick from Edenderry smashed the first festival fished solely on the Greenway with 68,540kg over the three days.  Fantastic fishing which has seen catches for the majority of the field in double figures. Long may it continue.
