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 7 – Aston Eyre 13/06/2020

Quarry Pool

15 fished

With the wind blowing into the shallows pegs 3 to 6 and 30 to 32 were contentiously favourable draws. Our socially distanced draw took on a new format with angler’s names being drawn followed by their drawn peg, thanks go out to adjudicator Trev, and draw machine Mickey for keeping an orderly draw.

So Guy did it again! He weighed in 152-8 to take 1st place in the frame from peg 3 which makes him the first member of the done a ton club this season, well done mate. It was good to watch 👀.

He finished ahead of Terry who put 80-0 into his nets to take second place on peg 6 Terry included a 15-0 carp 🐬caught on the pole, and so puts him into the running for the biggest individual fish. Simon weighed in with 58-8 to claim third place from peg 30.
We weighed in a total of 632lb at this match.

Many congratulations to Terry for posting a hat trick of wins. He continued his good form on the Swallow Pool at Monkhall, by putting 104-0 onto the scales from peg 2. Simon Harris took second place with 90-0, narrowly beating Barry who weighed in with 88-0.

Terry’s consecutive wins have catapulted him 😉 up to second place on the leader board behind Guy who remains at the top with consistent match points. We weighed in a total of 801lb at this match.

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 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

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

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

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.

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.

WyattsPool

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

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.
