Match 15 – Cob House 14/10/2018

9 fished

Chestnut Pool

A match not to miss – but due to holidays and other commitments unfortunately too many did miss this historic match. A match which saw Dan Podmore catch a double ton, and take the individual match record which has been broken several times this season already, and land the biggest single fish this season so far a carp of 16lb. Taking second place was Rob McKee with a total of 192lb 10oz, and third place goes to Guy Jones with 180lb 10oz.

In fact six out of the nine anglers that fished, broke through the ton barrier making it an exceptional match for individuals and the club as they all contributed to the biggest weight for a club match weighing in an incredible total of over 1,162lb.

Note that the next match on Aston Eyre will need all of your available nets and ensure they are dry for inspection by Tony.

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.

That’s not Rob, he’s busy catching fish behind the tree.

Rob McKee won his second match in a row at Cob House on Sunday.  Rob took advantage of the island feature with method feeder to weigh-in 116-02. This win catapults him to the top of the leader board (no pun intended).  An impressive display in the peg next to Rob as well from Mickey Meah with 65-00, that practising came in useful, closely followed by Kev Lees with 63-10 at the opposite end of the pool.  There were lots of big fish caught and lost on the day, what’s the biggest fish so far this season Trev?  Read more of this post
