Match 16 – Aston Eyre 27/10/2018

14 fished

Quarry Pool

Our last match of 2018 season was at Aston Eyre which usually provides a ton of fish for the winner and or the biggest fish of the season. What a difference a couple of days, and quite a few degrees Celsius makes, whoa it was feckin freezing, and as five hours passed almost all of us were packing up to try and keep warm. Two had already had enough and left early, leaving more points available for the final leader board, and Bobby (Nudd) Tranter was ecstatic with his fish!

Match 15 – Cob House 14/10/2018

9 fished

Chestnut Pool

A match not to miss – but due to holidays and other commitments unfortunately too many did miss this historic match. A match which saw Dan Podmore catch a double ton, and take the individual match record which has been broken several times this season already, and land the biggest single fish this season so far a carp of 16lb. Taking second place was Rob McKee with a total of 192lb 10oz, and third place goes to Guy Jones with 180lb 10oz.

In fact six out of the nine anglers that fished, broke through the ton barrier making it an exceptional match for individuals and the club as they all contributed to the biggest weight for a club match weighing in an incredible total of over 1,162lb.

Note that the next match on Aston Eyre will need all of your available nets and ensure they are dry for inspection by Tony.

Match 14 – Willow Marsh 30/09/2018

15 fished

Dragonfly Pool

Although the weather was pretty favourable, Dragonfly pool didn’t fish well with a lot of us struggling for bites.  Many different methods were put to use, as we all rang the changes. Swapping between long pole, shallow / short pole on the deck, pellet and cage feeder, bomb and pellet waggler.  Most methods would produce but not with any consistency.  Rob was the eventual winner, pipping Guy by 6lb with Martin catching well in the last hour landing 3 carp for just over 30lb making up his final weight.

Note that the next match is a pool change we are on Chestnut pool at Cob House.

A reminder to all anglers to return any trophies as we move into the last few matches of the season.  Time to lovingly, clean and polish them for the last time; before returning them to Trev, before the next presentation night.

We weighed in a total of 284lb. Read more of this post

Match 13 – Heronbrook 16/09/2018

17 fished

Bridge Pool

Terry continued his good spell of form, he was into the fish from the start, catching on pellet feeder to the far bank on Bridge pool permanent peg 28, then once the wind strengthened, he changed tactics focusing on the margins and taking carp and barbel on the pole close in.  Mel fished a similar match, taking a good stamp of mixed carp and barbel for second place.  Meanwhile Guy added a third place in the frame to extend his lead at the top of the leader board.

A reminder to all anglers to return the trophies as we move into the last few matches of the season.  Time to clean and polish them for the last time; before returning them to Trev, before the next presentation night.

We weighed in a total of 491lb. Read more of this post

Match 12 – Woodlands View 02/09/2018

16 fished

High Pool

Welcome to fantasy fishing, the ‘Dream Team’ appeared together for our annual doubles match at Woodlands View.  Pairs were drawn at random, and paired Guy Jones and Rob McKee together to create the ‘Dream Team’, fishing opposite each other, on each side of  High Pool.  Starting the match as firm favourites to win the doubles trophy so who was going to challenge them?

Simon Harris would have a go, if only his doubles partner could catch as well, or Terry Eardley on fancied peg 4 would also be in with a chance not only for the doubles trophy, but also the individual match too.

We weighed in a total of 461lb. Well done everyone.

Match 11 – Larford 19/08/2018

14 fished

Match Pool – Burr Bank

Our club match record was broken for the third time this season, twice in this match!

With 5 anglers recording  over a 100lb catches, an overall club record was on the cards as well as potential individual record.  The match was won by Dan Podmore off peg 64 by catching on the inside from the start of the match. There were also loads of claims of anglers losing fish – some lead us to believe they could have even doubled their weight if they landed every fish that they hooked.

We weighed in a total over 1,052lb. Well done everyone.

Match 10 – Monkhall 11/08/2018

13 fished

Lark Pool

The session got off to a great start, before everyone had set up on their pegs, Brian threw his keep net in forgetting that he needed to keep hold of the open end LOL (he did manage to retrieve it and set up okay after that). Once the whistle went  everyone was catching from the start.  Some on feeder, others on pole either long or short, so everything looked in favour of big winning weights.   Banter around the pool, was that Rob, Dan, Terry, Mickey and Simon were all catching well, it would be down to the stamp of fish they were all catching to determine who would make the frame.

Mickey was fishing feeder to the island, and was hitting the mark every time, impressive casting – which was being rewarded with good fish throughout the match.  Rob was plundering carp on the tip of the island on long pole. Terry was catching well on feeder to the island on the opposite side of the pool to Rob.  Meanwhile Martin and I were being frustrated by margin carp – tails in the air – sail away bites and nothing on the hook.

We weighed in a total over 773lb. Well done everyone.
