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 11 – Larford 19/08/2018

14 fished

Match Pool – Burr Bank

Our club match record was broken for the third time this season, twice in this match!

With 5 anglers recording  over a 100lb catches, an overall club record was on the cards as well as potential individual record.  The match was won by Dan Podmore off peg 64 by catching on the inside from the start of the match. There were also loads of claims of anglers losing fish – some lead us to believe they could have even doubled their weight if they landed every fish that they hooked.

We weighed in a total over 1,052lb. Well done everyone.

Match 10 – Monkhall 11/08/2018

13 fished

Lark Pool

The session got off to a great start, before everyone had set up on their pegs, Brian threw his keep net in forgetting that he needed to keep hold of the open end LOL (he did manage to retrieve it and set up okay after that). Once the whistle went  everyone was catching from the start.  Some on feeder, others on pole either long or short, so everything looked in favour of big winning weights.   Banter around the pool, was that Rob, Dan, Terry, Mickey and Simon were all catching well, it would be down to the stamp of fish they were all catching to determine who would make the frame.

Mickey was fishing feeder to the island, and was hitting the mark every time, impressive casting – which was being rewarded with good fish throughout the match.  Rob was plundering carp on the tip of the island on long pole. Terry was catching well on feeder to the island on the opposite side of the pool to Rob.  Meanwhile Martin and I were being frustrated by margin carp – tails in the air – sail away bites and nothing on the hook.

We weighed in a total over 773lb. Well done everyone.

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

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.
