Match 7 – Aston Eyre 13/06/2020

Quarry Pool

15 fished

With the wind blowing into the shallows pegs 3 to 6 and 30 to 32 were contentiously favourable draws. Our socially distanced draw took on a new format with angler’s names being drawn followed by their drawn peg, thanks go out to adjudicator Trev, and draw machine Mickey for keeping an orderly draw.

So Guy did it again! He weighed in 152-8 to take 1st place in the frame from peg 3 which makes him the first member of the done a ton club this season, well done mate. It was good to watch 👀.

He finished ahead of Terry who put 80-0 into his nets to take second place on peg 6 Terry included a 15-0 carp 🐬caught on the pole, and so puts him into the running for the biggest individual fish. Simon weighed in with 58-8 to claim third place from peg 30.
We weighed in a total of 632lb at this match.

Match 6 – Broseley 06/06/2020

Lodge Pool

14 fished

So our start to the season finally commenced at Broseley, the same venue that we finished off last season with our fund raiser. It was a cloudy, blustery day with the odd rain shower, but generally the weather stayed fine. It was good to see the other club members on the bank, and to see plenty of fish being caught.

Guy weighed in 82-4 to take 1st place in the frame from peg 9 which included 10-0 of silver fish – as if he needed them! He finished ahead of Simon who put 55-4 into his nets to take second place on peg 8. Paul weighed in with 37-0 to claim third place from peg 6. There was also Mickey, Simon and Mel who all finished on 27-8.
We weighed in a total of 404lb at this match.

All in for the new season

We are pleased to announce that with the recent lifting of restrictions on organised match fishing, we start our season this year at Broseley, Lodge Lane on Saturday 6th June with a draw time of 8:00 AM.

Obviously, I’m sure that you do not need reminding that things will be done differently with regards to social distancing, especially when it comes to paying your fees, drawing pegs, getting to your peg safely and weighing in. These are all important items that have been addressed by our committee in consultation with respective fishery owners, and the new ‘normal’ will be applied to all matches until further notice.

The main thing is that for those that can join us, this is the start of the new season and a chance for us to get match fishing again in a safe manner.

Stay alert, control the virus, save lives.

Match re-arranged

Our match at Monkhall on the Swallow Pool has been re-arranged for 31 October, 2020 (hopefully). Mickey has been working behind the scenes to try and get matches re-arranged where possible. 👍
