Match 4 – Coppice Lane 22/05/2016

Bridge Pool

12 Fished


Rob McKee came close to a hat-trick of wins (20-08), but Kev beat him into second place with (21-00) at Coppice Lane on Sunday.  Victory didn’t come easy for Kev though as I understand he broke his No 7 section of his pole on one fish, which meant that he had to revert to fishing the feeder.   This means that Kev closes the gap at the top of the leader board to two points.  Simon was third in the frame with 16-04. This was our lowest attended match this season with only 12 anglers fishing, meaning more points were available for the lower placed anglers like me and Trev.

Match 1 – Coppice Lane 10/04/2016

Bridge Pool

17 Fished

As the fishing wasn’t much to talk about, an interesting topic of conversation was what everyone had bought for the start of the new season. A lot of new seat boxes were on display, Preston and Maver were well represented. As it was the first match it was quite funny to watch everyone putting their gear together on trollies back to front or not fitting properly. Probably the last to turn up were Brian and Jack.  Jack paraded his new seat box and then Brian towed out his new trolley.  Read more of this post

Match 1 – Coppice Lane 12/04/2015

Becketts Pool

19 Fished


Becketts Pool

Another good attendance for the opening match of our club season at Becketts Pool on Sunday, it was a difficult match mainly due to the wind, which brought temperatures down, and made fishing the pole impossible for some. Many anglers were sitting it out on either 1 or 2 feeder / bomb rods for the 5 hour duration.

Barry caught the heaviest fish of the season so far which went to 11-8 on the scales. This also helped him to 2nd place on the day. Dan got off to a flying start from peg 22 landing good sized carp within the first hour finishing the match in 3rd place, however at the top end of the pool, Martin was regularly landing enough fish to win the match with 51-0, and start the season top of the leader board.
