In the Spotlight, Mickey Meah.

Mickey Meah is our club chairman, so when I thought about doing an angler interview feature, where better to start than with the man himself.

PP: So, when did it all start, when did you start fishing?
MM: I started fishing when I was 12 years old.

PP: And can you recall the first fish that you caught?
MM: Yes, it was a small perch at earls wood lakes.

PP: What was your favourite ever match, and why?
MM: That was when I was 17. I made my first trip to Ireland (Virginia co Cavan) a rod, a basket and a tub of worms. 62 anglers entered the contest on the river black water. I was fortunate to win my first ever contest with 65 pound of bream.

Solhampton Match

Annual Outing Arrangements

The annual outing is at The Old Hough.  The tackle van will be at the Unicorn car park on Friday 21/07 between 6:00pm and 7:30pm.  Please can all anglers who require this facility please meet here to load their tackle onto the van.

On Saturday 22/07 the mini bus is scheduled to leave at 7:00am.  Breakfasts have been arranged at a local Wetherspoons where the draw will take place.  Then hopefully a full day of action packed fishing.  Followed up with a few pints at various pubs on the way back to Dawley.

This year we want at least one group photo to add to the site!

Breakfast at Monkhall

The on-site cafe, which serves hot food, hot and cold drinks, will open for our match tomorrow if we get there early enough. Don’t forget the draw time is 11am. Read more of this post
