Mark Broom sent us a photo of a rainbow while fishing at Beckerings Reservoir this week and that has rather typified the conditions with plenty of sunshine and showers keeping many anglers indoors.

Continues to fish well for those on the right bait and if your name is Luke!. Luke Bowman had a 27lb personal best mirror along with a 20lb 8oz common both caught using Thripster baits.

Luke Marvin fished Thripster Berry and was rewarded with 7 carp to 20lb along with 3 bream. Luke Marvin managed a further 3 hour trip to the reservoir tempting a 23lb mirror on Thripster Berry.

We have seen on social media that Lee Moore has caught the Shadow Common at 32lb 2oz which is Lees first 30lb+ fish after trying for so long to catch one, so well done to him.
Ethan Griffiths seems to catch at will and has sent us a selection of photos from captures in recent weeks.

Chris Thripp continues to catch on the Thripster mixes.

If you like trotting a stick float catching quality roach, perch and big dace then the river at Biddenham is the place to go and I stood watching a retired angler on Tuesday morning doing just that with a fish a chuck and some nice specimens that needed the landing net put under them.

The Grand Union Canal at Ivinghoe proved moody and out of sorts after recent rain for Abbey Lads visit there on Sunday 10th September with weights very disappointing

Luton Angling Club Weekly News Report for the Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire & St Neots Cambridgeshire Area - Week Ending 10th September 2017

A good week for catches despite the weather giving us all a good soaking on occasions

Paul & Braidan Tidmarsh fished Kempston Lake for 48 hours Braidan had 10 carp & 5 bream best fish were commons of 19lb & 22.09 and mirrors of 23.09 & 23.10. Paul had 5 carp best an 18lb mirror plus 1 tench. During their session they both had double hook ups. The pair went through 5kg of Innovate nut mix and 25kg of particle.

Chris Thripp had another good common on the Thripsters mixes.

James Cole tempted the mirror known as the Wanderer at 30lb 4oz.

David Steed sent in some photos from his last couple of trips which included the common known as Popeye at 25lb 8oz.

Tommy Pattison landed mirrors of 19lb & 20lb 4oz

Luke Marvin had a lovely scaley mirror on Thripsters mixes

Daniel Szeszko landed a nice perch

Andy McCreary banking a specimen of 3lb 3oz

Good nets of roach and bream from the Grove marina but very light lines and small hooks are the order of the day with many visiting anglers not getting their tactics right and wondering why they struggle, start off on a size 20 hook and 2lb line with a 1.5lb bottom and you won't go far wrong.

A good turnout and great feedback at the latest Lets Fish event.
Message from Graham Payne after attending the latest Lets Fish event today on the Grand Union Canal at the Three Locks - Huge thanks to the Luton Angling Club for our introduction to fishing. A great morning out and a very excited and happy Albert. He was over the moon with his monster perch.

Message from Marcus' mum Sam - Thank you for a great morning on the canal . Boys loved it and we are now all signed up!
