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.

Match 8 – Park Farm 15/07/2018

17 fished

Lodge Pool

Yet another glorious day for fishing, another chance for more record breaking weights at Park Farm, Broseley. This is an excellent pool run by Dawley Angling Society.

The carp in this pool, all put up a great fight even on heavier tackle, we had rods ripped off rod rests, pole sections smashed, and poles ripped out of the hands of anglers as the fish saw an easy meal and seemed to be on an all out hit and run for the trees or reeds to shed the tackle that they collected.

We weighed in  a total over 882lb.
