Last comments & guesses are at 8.00 AM on Saturday morning BEFORE the draw..Yes just to make a bit more difficult for you, you won’t know which peg the angler you are backing is on, so it could be any ones game, we will be live feeding the draw at 9.00 am on Sat so you can see where the angler you are backing has drawn!

The vouchers can be used in the Tackle & Bait Shop, the Cafe or on peg fees – match or day ticket with no expiry date!

P.S If you haven’t got a clue who anyone of the above names are but want to win the £50.00 vouchers then just pick a name at random to be in with a chance of winning, all entries welcomed!!

With £1,309 already in the prize pot from the additional £1’s collected throughout the year from entries… and £1,120 to be added to it from the £35 entry (minus £7 peg fee = £28 x 40 anglers) AND the £1’s collected from this last qualifier ANDDD Tackle Guru prizes to be won, this is sure to be a good final!!

(Anyone who has qualified from the list below who hasn’t paid their £35 please can you drop it into Nellie in cash ASAP!)

We will be running a Facebook competition once the final name is added to the list below on Sunday, where you can guess who you think will be the 2018 Partridge High Flyer and win yourself £20 Partridge Lakes Gift Voucher & a Guru bucket filled with lots of winter tackle goodies!!
..So keep an eye out who’s doing well on the open matches and of they are on the list below to see who you are going to back to win the final!!


The 2018 Partridge High Flyer is where the qualified 40 anglers throughout the year fish off against each other on Covey 1 – 4 in our All Winners Final. 

We run the High Flyer Qualifiers alongside our weekend open matches, there are 40 dates/ chances to qualify (alternate Saturday and Sundays – see dates list below) where you can pay an additional £1 when fishing an open match on the specified dates. Then all you have to do to qualify for the prestigious final is place highest out of the anglers who have paid their £1!

The Final will be held on Saturday 20th October 2018

The £1 entries are collected over the year and create a big money pot for the payouts & it is £35 on the day of the Final to fish to bump up the big cash prizes to be won, along with Guru prizes!

For more info call 07950057613, or if you would like to book on to our weekend open matches – the list goes up the weekend before, in peak season to secure a place it is recommended to call the weekend prior to the weekend match you want to fish!


Who will be the 2018 Partridge High Flyer?!?! See below for the 2018 qualifiers already…

Steve Openshaw won the 2017 Partridge High Flyer Final and is the current title holder!!
(Along with being the Fishery Record Holder with 291.06 lbs off Covey 3 peg 52!!)

I think everyone can agree that Ste who fishes for Mosella UK well & truly deserves this title after topping the board more times that we can count but will he keep it up in 2018?!

The 2017 was a VERY close final…..

1. Ste Openshaw – peg 78 – 81.10 lbs
2. Mark Tregear – peg 95 – 80.08 lbs
3. Shaun Cooke – peg 89 – 75.00 lbs
4. Barry Rogers – peg 42 – 71.01 lbs
5. Chris Weeder Jnr – peg 100 – 70.01 lbs
