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.

Match 7 – Cob House 30/06/2018

17 fished

Wyatt’s Pool

The annual outing was held at Cob House this year, following a healthy breakfast in the Mayfly Cafe, pegs were drawn for the match on Wyatt’s Pool.

The conditions were fantastic for a days fishing, and surprisingly not many basking carp were seen.  Almost everyone favoured  fishing the pole onto the second shelf as a starting point.  Some were fishing long pole shallow, and some started fishing the method.  Meanwhile on peg 15, Jason started plundering the shoal of carp that were willing to feed in his peg. When weighing in, he commented that the first keep net that we put on the scales was in the first hour, that was 50lb 8oz.  Needless to say, he continued with his method and added over 100lb to that first net.  Well done Jason, you’re banned 😃.  In the club result Terry on peg 5 was starting to connect with the carp being spurred on by his old man who started showing him the way, pulling carp out of the pool with ease despite his bad back.  They were like a wrestling tag team with fore-arm smashes being traded with any carp that wouldn’t submit to the net.

Match 6 – Aston Eyre 16/06/2018

16 fished

Quarry Pool

Once again the Quarry Pool at Aston Eyre produced some great weights.  Although the weather did not help anyone fishing the pole, as the wind got up and as the venue is an open water it did whip up some waves.  Fishing pellet waggler was not really an option today either, which then left feeder methods available to entice the carp to feed.

We weighed in  a total over 779lb.
