Match 1 – Monkhall 03/04/2021

Swallow Pool

15 fished


Cloudy start with sunny spells later on with a high temperature of 11C and a low of 8C with a moderate Northerly wind of 9mph

Good bags of carp from around Swallow pool

A great start to the season, with a brilliant attendance for our opening match of the 2021 season at the brilliant Monkhall fishery.

We had a lot of catching up to do as there have been no presentations, and no AGM in 2021. So Trev and Martin did the honours and presented the trophies from the back of his van (Julie is well pleased). Following the presentation we welcomed the new members to the club. A big welcome to Gavin and Allan oh and Jack is back! (just in case nobody noticed). Following the proceedings and taking all the subscriptions, Martin proceeded with the draw, we opted to draw names and then peg numbers from hereon (COVID is still here).

Things got off to a good start for Terry, winning the first football card (PNE), then Martin drew peg 1 for him and he then went on the catch more than a ton and win the match. Not easy when you’re fishing next door to Guy (no pressure eh Tez).

There were plenty of carp and ide being caught, to pole fished short and down the track either on the deck or up in the water. Paul and Gavin we having good fish on the feeder as well.

Don’t forget to consider transportation options for the Annual Outing, I know it’s not until June, but we’ll need time to organise and tentatively make a booking.
Nominations for a new vice chair-person will be accepted via the WhatsApp group or by contacting Trev or Martin directly.

We weighed in 782lbs or 354kg.

Match 17 – Monkhall 31/10/2020

Swallow Pool

8 fished

Report by Trev.

Fishing conditions were atrocious on the day with high winds and rain, the results were a bit of a miss mash. Within the first two hours I think everybody would have packed up and gone home as brollys been blown inside out and sections of poles blown across the paths.

The better results coming from the right-hand side of the pool, with Terry, Martin, Dan and Dave, but I think everyone was relieved when the all-out whistle was blown. Simon Garbett had already packed up and left early. Although we were all having a laugh and joke about the conditions of the day when we finished.

As there will be no presentation night due to the COVID we will have a mini presentation at the AGM in Jan all being well .

So the committee myself, Micky and Martin would like to wish all the members a safe and happy Xmas and New Year, we will be in touch later with a date for the AGM and where it will be held

Match 16 – Aston Eyre 17/10/2020

Quarry Pool

10 fished

Report by Trev.

Very hard fishing as a lot of rain fell during the night which affected the fishing, as you can see in the results, hope it improves for the last match of the season at Monkhall.

Dave did have 8lb 12ozs of bits with some nice roach in there. There were a few lumps pulled out but nothing to beat Terrys big fish last time we fished here.

Been in touch with Monkhall we have agreed to change the draw time to ⏰ 9a.m. then fish 🎣 10a.m. to 3p.m. on Saturday 31st October πŸ“†.

Hope to see you all at next match.

Match 15 – Woodside 04/10/2020

Island Pool

8 fished

Report by Trev.

Very hard fishing as a lot of rain fell during the night which affected the fishing, as you can see in the results although I (Trev) did manage a 3lb perch which was a highlight of the day πŸ˜‚. Even guy found it hard going for a change.

All trophies to be cleaned and returned at next match please. πŸ†

We are on the look out for new members if anybody can help for next year as Bobby, Billy, and Ted have sadly parted company with the club.

I would like to wish them all the best as they have been great servants to the club and will be sadly missed. 😒

Match 13 – Bells Mill 06/09/2020

Match Pool

12 fished

A new venue for us and by all accounts it should be one that we revisit again. There was added interest in this match as it was also the doubles fixture.

Simon Harris recorded his first match win of the season, putting 61-8 on the scales, beating Guy into an electrifying ⚑ second place by 1-8, so close we feel your pain! There was a tie for third place, Simon Garbett and Terry could not be separated at the weigh-in, both with 58-8.

With the individual winning weights being so close, what would be the result in the doubles pairings.

Match 12 – Broseley 23/08/2020

Lodge Pool

9 fished

Improved results from Lodge Lane pool this week, allowed Guy to continue his winning formand recording his 6th win out of 7 matches fished.

The framing weights came from the far end of the pool, pegs 7, 9 and 15 with just over separating Guy, Mickey and Trev respectively. Well done Mickey and Trev for giving Guy a run for his win. Probably the closet match he’s had in awhile.

We weighed in a total of 289lb at this match.

Match 11 – Froggatts 09/08/2020

Marlpit Pool

13 fished

There were mixed results from Marlpit, which was expected to fish better than it did. So Guy continued his excellent season taking his 5th win out of 6 matches fished. So nothing new there.

Si Garbett enjoyed this match trying to land the carp that he hooked, often getting smashed by carp that did not intend going into his net. The surprise was Carol, who was overjoyed to take 3rd place in the frame from peg 11, although she was kept in suspense as the weigh-in continued around the pool πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

We weighed in a total of 320lb at this match. Who’s looking forward to the next match πŸ™.

This one nearly got away!
