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.
