Martin Sutton fished Moor Farm on the 1st August and send us the below report.;
Arriving at the car park at 7.30am I was surprised to find that I was the only one there. I set up on the first peg and could already see fish cruising around on the surface. I rigged one rod with a Method Feeder and initially halibut pellet bait, whilst the other rod had a controller float and dog biscuit. Although the fish were active on the surface it was the Method that brought the first result – a Common weighing in at 3lbs 12ozs. This was soon followed by another two others weighting 4lb 12ozs and 4lb 6ozs. It then went quiet for a while and around 30 minutes later the other rod sprung around and I took another Common , tipping the scales at 4lbs 10ozs, from the surface.
The cloud cover started to increase, the wind got up and bites dried up. Some 2½ hours later, on my last cast before packing up, the Method worked again. A long slow battle ensued and eventually the fish came to the net. This one was a very fine Mirror which was a very respectable 10lbs 8ozs. Moor Farm continues to provide excellent sport and entertainment. Also fishing at Moor Farm on Saturday the 1st was Chris Cannon, Chris who was fishing the middle lake started the day with a Common Carp of just under 4-0-0 and lost a good fish at the net, Chris's day got progressively worse apparently and the wind and rain steadily increased and seemed to put the fish off.
Despite the weather Chris stayed at the venue until the evening and is glad he did as he finished the session with a Mirror Carp of 15-10-0 caught on floating crust.

Mike Dibble fished the River Adur below White Bridge on the evening of 25th July. Using banded 6mm pellet he caught Bream of 2lb & 3lb before a quiet spell prompted a change to corn. This produced a Hybrid, Mike then lost a fish & ended the session with an Eel.

Mike Dibble fished the Rother at Hardham on 19th July. In his own words it was "hard fishing" with the river running very clear despite the recent rains. Legered pellet never tempted a bite & switching to a worm/corn cocktail only produced a large Eel. A bored Mike then set up the stick float & took seven Gudgeon on worm. No sign of a Chub or Bream on this outing.
19 July 2009
Mark Dibble fished the River Arun at Washingham on 19th July. Using groundbait feeder & pellet he managed just two proper bites during the session but they both produced a nice Bream. The first was about 5lb & the second weighed 6lb 2oz.
