Match 16 – Aston Eyre 12/10/2019

Quarry Pool

10 fished

Guy weighed in 89-8 to take 1st place in the frame, it was a difficult match due to the number of fish that were lost – the size of fish always impresses at Quarry Pool, there are some big monsters in there. He finished ahead of Simon who put 83-8 into his nets for a close second place, probably only one fish behind. And Mel weighed in with 68-2 to claim third place from peg 5, 4, 3 and 2 😮 😆 eh Rob.
We weighed in a total of 466lb at this match.

Match 13 – Willowmarsh 1/09/2019

Dragon Fly Pool

15 fished

Martin ensured this one didn’t get away.

Guy managed to land most of the fish he hooked at Willowmarsh on Sunday. He weighed in 54-0 to take 1st place in the frame. He finished ahead of Billy and Simon who both put 36-8 onto the scales, to claim joint second place.
There were many stories of loads of lost BIG fish causing frustration among those that were catching. Bites were few and far between for most of the club members which made things worse, waiting long periods for bites, before being smashed – whether you were fishing feeder, pellet waggler or pole short in the margins, or just in front of you. If they had all been netted it could have been a different match, and I’m sure the biggest fish of the year would have featured at this venue.

Guy opened up the lead at the top of the leader board over Terry who is now 14 points behind. We weighed in a total of 306lb at this match.

Match 11 – Haye Farm 11/08/2019

Curtis Pool

10 fished

Terry held off the challengers and the rain

A mixed bag of weather and fishing fortunes on Sunday at Haye Farm. Despite the sudden downpours, Terry started catching from the inside margin on big pellet. Barry started off well opposite Terry, but couldn’t sustain the pressure on him. Meanwhile further down the pool Rob was having a nightmare with lost fish and tree snags. But he persevered to beat Mel into third place.

In addition we all wish Mickey a speedy recovery.

Guy remains on top of the leader board followed by Terry who is still chasing and waiting for more slip ups. We weighed in a total of 242lb at this match.

Match 10 – Larford 28/07/2019

Match Pool – Burr Bank

14 fished

I couldn’t belive my eyes when I arrived at my peg, as soon as I stepped onto the wooden platform to setup the number of carp that spooked into the bay was like a tidal wave. Permanent peg 66 is a bit of a kamikaze peg, an end peg more suited to a left handed angler. So I setup a pellet feeder and 3 rigs for my margin pole, when the whistle sounded the all-in the carp were still visible in front of me, so I started on the pellet feeder. The first five chucks, I landed five carp putting approximately 25-0 into the net.

Guy remains on top of the leader board followed by Terry who is still chasing and waiting for more slip ups. We weighed in a total of 485lb at this match.

Match 8 – Cob House 29/06/2019

Chestnut Pool

15 fished

Cob house fishery hosted our annual outing this year. After a really good breakfast in the Mayfly cafe which set us up for the day fishing on the Chestnut Pool.

We used the permanent pegs for the match, which had been selected by the fishery bailiff. With a supply of fishery feed pellets, we made our way to our pegs after picking up fishery supplied keep nets and landing nets.

The pool aerator was running throughout the match, due to the high temperature – 34 degrees poolside which could be classed as normal if you’re on holiday abroad but not when you’re match fishing in England.

The pool has a very good stamp of carp of all varieties as well as bream and tench. I know Billy got off the a great start taking two carp with his first two chucks on the pole. But I think it was Mickey that landed the first fish of the match which was a bream, and he went on to catch 44lb of bream at the weigh in. The fishing got better as the match progressed, with some very big carp being caught on pole and feeder tactics.
