Sunday the 17th of June saw a few anglers venture out in the wet morning weather for a few hours fishing, strangely most of the anglers at Goose Green descended on Lake 3, Simon Parker under the watchful eye of his uncle Spike, fished the short pole with maggot on the hook for a mixed net of small Roach, Rudd, Skimmer & Perch, fishing in the adjacent swim to Simon was Sandy Emery on her first trip to Goose in over two weeks, Sandy also fishing the short pole caught Roach, Rudd, Skimmers and a solitary carp of 7lb, all on maggot.
On the far bank of the Lake another family outing was taking place, Adam Tester fished the pole toward the outflow pipes from the field bank of the Lake for a net of Skimmers, bream and small silvers, his dad, Anthony Tester, however showed Adam how it should be done, Anthony fishing in the margins with pellet on the hook, put together an impressive net for the conditions, his net comprised Carp (at least two) to 7-0-0, Crucians, Skimmers, the famous Goose Green Flying Bream, plus a steady succession of Roach & Rudd, Anthony's final weight is unfortunately not known.
Mark Tester was to be found fishing towards the reed bed on the Dam wall, having lost a couple of good fish in the reeds, mark did eventually land a carp 6-0-0, which led him a merry dance for a short time, Mark also included Bream and skimmers in his haul.
