Match 8 – Cobhouse 27/06/2020

Oak Pool & Laurel Pool

16 fished

Our annual day out trip still went ahead, although a completely different day out from our normal transportation, breakfast, fishing, and beer affair this year due to COVID-19. Even the draw, which was held online via Zoom so that we were organised for the match ahead of us and seemed to go well.

The match was split over two pools, Oak and Laurel and on arrival at our pegs the heavens opened, and it looked likely that it was going to be raining all day. Thanks to a gusting wind the rain ceased and we were basking in sunshine after a good soaking.

The match was incident filled throughout right until the weigh in! Dan Podmore lost a top 2 of his pole which was swiped out of his grasp by an edge dwelling carp on Laurel. Quite a few of us were having foul hooked fish, as the carp moved up in the water to feed. On Oak, Terry was battling with double figure carp again! The best method of the day was right in the edge and top 2 shallow as by now the carp were in a feeding frenzy.

Guy was stalking fish, in his purpose built ‘hide’ and it was working, ending up with 7 nets in front on him.

Guy’s ‘hide and seek’ method worked a treat!

Dan was having similar success, and they were both filling their nets throughout the entire match. Over on the Oak pool, Simon, Terry and Barry were emptying the pool.

As the weigh in progressed around the 2 pools our club record was broken twice on the Oak Pool – with Terry putting 237-0 on the scales and Simon Garbett weighing in 334-14 with the weigh in moving onto the Laurel Pool, first to weigh was Dan who was rumoured to have over 340-0 in his 7 nets, however the first net he pulled out had nothing in it other than a bloody big hole in it, which his catch had used to escape from. Unlucky or what, Dan ended up with 272-8 to beat his previous club record set last season. Ryan, was a guest on the day and weighed in 103-0. As the weigh in arrived at Guy’s peg did he have 7 nets full of fish?

Match 8 – Cob House 29/06/2019

Chestnut Pool

15 fished

Cob house fishery hosted our annual outing this year. After a really good breakfast in the Mayfly cafe which set us up for the day fishing on the Chestnut Pool.

We used the permanent pegs for the match, which had been selected by the fishery bailiff. With a supply of fishery feed pellets, we made our way to our pegs after picking up fishery supplied keep nets and landing nets.

The pool aerator was running throughout the match, due to the high temperature – 34 degrees poolside which could be classed as normal if you’re on holiday abroad but not when you’re match fishing in England.

The pool has a very good stamp of carp of all varieties as well as bream and tench. I know Billy got off the a great start taking two carp with his first two chucks on the pole. But I think it was Mickey that landed the first fish of the match which was a bream, and he went on to catch 44lb of bream at the weigh in. The fishing got better as the match progressed, with some very big carp being caught on pole and feeder tactics.

Match 11 Solhampton 22/08/2015

Annual Outing

Kingfisher and Valley Pools

The annual day out is never a dull affair even the threat of thunder and lightning couldn’t dampen the mood and enthusiasm to win this auspicious occasion. Burgess, the owner of the pool suggested that because we had 20 anglers taking part we could split the match over two pools, originally we had booked the Kingfisher, but now we could also use the Valley pool. So a narrow vote decided to split the match over the two pools. Payouts would be 1st and 2nd on each pool with two sections on each pool. The golden pegs would be drawn as normal, and when they were there was one from each pool, so it couldn’t have worked out better.

Simon landed 20lb of fish in the last half hour of this 5 and half hour match so in real terms that probably means another net full. So the honours on the valley pool went to Simon ‘do I need another net’ Garbett, followed by Barry ‘wha choke!, I had the golden peg’ Podmore and there was more controversy to come on the Kingfisher pool. Terry weighed in 61-8 on peg 8 and it was at peg 26 when adding the weights of the two nets together Ted thought he had 62-4 to win the pool, however his actual total was 61-4 to come second, just 8oz behind Terry. Oh, for anyone interested Ted has some Preston hooks to nylon for sale. Visit the gallery for more photos of our day out.
