10th September 2017 – Folly Lake produced another storming match result today – Pully pulled off a runaway victory with 233lb from peg 14 on caster over maggot and set a new lake record while M Wood banked a respectable 138lb from peg 28 and Trev McGlocklin 112lb from peg 20. Midweek evening pleasure catches have been topping the 100lb mark so there’s no surprise the record went this week as fish go on a feeding frenzy.
