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.

Dan weighed in 45-8 to take 1st place in the frame, it was a difficult match due to the amount of rainfall in the 48 hours prior to the match. He finished ahead of Simon who put 26-0 into his net for second place. Third place went to Guy, who weighed in with 19-4. Many thanks to everyone who attended despite the atrocious weather.

Quarry Pool

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.

Don’t forget to set your clocks back 1 hour for the next match which is at Broseley, Lodge Lane on October 27.

Can someone donate a 3rd prize for the match as there won’t be any pay out’s. We’ve got a 1st and 2nd prize can you let me know who is going to donate as I don’t want to have loads of bottles to take home 😉

Entry peg fees will be £15 for the match and I would like everyone to have a couple of goes on the football card at £2 a team £30 for the winner – or if someone wants to donate bottle of something for the prize it would mean more money to go to the club funds thanks.

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.

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 believe 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.
