Stillwater report: The main lake at the Warren is still fishing well for carp, with father and son duo Tony and Shaun Gilbert again enjoying success, catching a combined 219lbs of carp in a two-day session.

Their catch included six carp over 20lbs, along with bream up to 4lbs and tench tipping the scales at 7lbs.

The fish were caught quiver tipping using the favoured sweetcorn and the logs area was the hot spot.

The best fish of the week was a 3lb 4oz crucian carp caught by Adam Batterham, and also a quality catch of bream were included in his day's fishing.

Reports indicate that the Square Lake is still producing with Arron Patterson catching four fish to 19lbs, Chris Silver catching a fine leather of 17lbs, and John Covill catching his personal best mirror of 22lbs 8ozs.

Early morning and evening anglers fishing the match lake are having a field day with tench and bream.

Also, the whip has been producing good catches of roach with caster and maggot.

Tylers Common has also been fishing well on all four lakes and the margins have been producing good results with carp to 20lbs plus, from the Wagtail Lake, along with some quality barbell.

The Ash and Willow Lakes are still performing to their usual high standards, with plenty of double figure catches being had on pellet corn and paste.

River round-up: The Thames at Putney is producing fish on the stick and feeder, maggot the main bait. Richmond and Barge walk is also giving club anglers worthy catches.

The Cam at A and B sections at Baitsbite Lock are producing on caster hemp and tares. Some quality roach in the catches.

The pro-master angling open pairs match held at Hawkhurst fishery, Road Lake proved a match angler's dream, with a total weight of 1,800lbs at the 2 x 3 hour match.

The winner was Gareth Huth with 682lbs. This was the highest recorded match weight in the UK. He used pro-paste hookbait, pro-pineapple hookers, maggots casters pellet and loose feed.

In second place was Geoff Penny with 285lbs, third was Dave Bass with 190lbs 4ozs. I would think that this weight would take a few years to beat.
