Hi Everyone, Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who supported our Annual Ivan Marks Memorial event last week end. It is unbelievable but this is our 15th year of staging this event. I hope everyone enjoyed the two days fishing in what was reasonable weather. Over the years anglers have contributed huge amounts of money to the various charities we all support. At The Glebe we stage several charity events each year and in addition clubs and other organisations also hold special events. I haven’t a total of all the monies raised but I do know that last year the total exceeded over one hundred thousand pounds in total from all the events staged at the fishery since we opened in 1996. This is a fantastic effort and everyone has my sincere thanks. Last weekend Linda Marks thanked everyone and told the anglers what charities this money goes to. Last year the fund also sponsored a new bench at Papworth Hospital in addition to more local charities. I still receive monies for our various charity..
Good Evening Everyone, Today was day 2 of Ivan’s. We had 83 anglers fishing today. Despite being 10 more than yesterday, we expected the 130lb weight from Saturday would be bettered & it was. Dom Lanni fished a great match on peg 75 (Ivan’s bench) on lake 4 to weigh 183lb 13oz & on another day this would have been enough to secure victory but over on peg 83 on lake 5 Jason Dunworth registered the only 200lb weight of the weekend finally weighing in 210lb 13oz catching initially on the feeder before switching to his left deep margin on paste then his right margin on maggots & groundbait. Finishing as the well deserved Ivan Marks 2019 winner (Jason is pictured with the trophy along with Linda Marks & Roy Marlow). Well done Jason, well deserved. Thanks to everyone who helps make this event possible this is you the anglers who’s entry fees go to charities of Linda’s choice. Roy for opening up his fantastic fishery specially for the weekend. Ross Nursey for sorting the ticket allocation..
Good Evening All, today was the first of our charity matches. We had 73 anglers fishing today on lakes 1 to 9 on The Glebe. With fish spawning on most lakes it was always going to be a fishing match & hard to predict what lake you wanted to be on to have a chance of getting your hands on the coveted Ivan Marks trophy. As well as raising money for Linda Marks charities. Anyway when Internet sensation Dippy Ward was left with peg 109 on lake 7 surely this was his day. Well enough said other than he will be in front of the committee tomorrow after his 70lb ! Today’s match winner was Steve Marshall from peg 87 on lake 6 weighing 130lb just ahead of his mate Dean Revill who had 120lb from peg 102 on lake 7. Here are today’s weigh sheets. Along with today’s match winner with Linda & Roy. Day two tomorrow. Please ensure you are paid on by 8:45hrs as today we had a few late arrivals that delayed the draw.
