Match 1 – Woodlands View 09/04/2017

High Pool

19 Fished

The problem faced by all of us who fished this match was that there was a Fish o’ mania qualifier held on the complex, on the Saturday.  That said the top end of the pool was where the top five weights came from.  The weather could not have been better for our opening match of the season, the hottest day of the year so far. There were even anglers fishing with their tops off sun bathing.  So is that why they didn’t catch so many fish?

There were plenty of double figure carp caught at Aston Eyre, during the match there were a possible 4 lumps vying to beat the 15-04 largest fish that was currently winning with 3 anglers sharing the spoils.  Well finally, to save a fish off in the pub car park Guy Jones landed a 16-0-0 lump to take that title for this year.

Match 12 – Solhampton 04/09/2016

Kingfisher Pool

15 Fished

Well he can draw a peg, can’t he, as long as it’s peg 8 on the Kingfisher.  Even though he couldn’t remember fishing here before, Terry returned to Solhampton Kingfisher pool to win from the same peg that he won from last year. From the outset Terry started fishing pellet feeder to the island taking small carp, before catching on the pole in the margins, but it was one of those days for him where he couldn’t go wrong whatever he fished.

Banter over a beer – Rob of the Hill vs Hadley Tez!

The annual outing was full of promise until the weather intervened and although it was not as bad as we expected, it did have a detrimental effect on the fishing.  Especially with the pool having two ‘bowls’ with one bowl having waves on it and the other a mill pond in comparison. The fish followed the tow of the water and this was evident at the weigh-in. The match was fished over 5 1/2 hours, and 42-00 was the winning weight, which was not even challenged by the second weight in the frame. Read more of this post

Oak Pool

Well he can draw a peg, can’t he! Kev was back on track drawing the corner peg of the oak pool, fishing long pole, Kev put together the winning weight of 34-00.  Paul was second fishing feeder under the willow tree to put 25-00 in the net at the end. He was closely followed by Barry who weighed in 23-14.
