Match 10 – Pipehill 09/08/2015

Alders Pool

19 Fished

Jack on the pole

Jack Cheadle finished 5th with 19-0-0

 Summer was finally back for this match. There was another fantastic turnout as this venue was anticipated to provide good weights all round. There is a good head of fish in Alders.Alders holds a good head of common and mirror carp, some which reach 22lbs with a decent number of fish in the 11lbs to 15lbs range and a lot of fish around the 5lbs to 6lbs mark. In general, Alders holds the biggest fish of the Pipehill waters.  There are also good numbers of crucian carp to 2lbs with plenty of fish around the 1lb mark but, despite the large stock of crucians, catching these fish can sometimes be erratic but they provide great sport when they are on the feed.  However, after the first hour, following some instant success, the talk around the pool was that most were either struggling for bites or losing fish for one reason or another.

Oh fishing and the banter…
It seems as though everyone wanted an end peg at this match.  But it wasn’t an end peg that won it in fact it was the ‘flyer peg’ drawn by Kev Lees that won the match with 40-0.  Followed by the two end peg anglers Jack and Trev on each side of the pool.  At the end (no pun intended) it was generally agreed that only two fishable pegs were omitted from the match.  With many struggling on the pole the majority of fish were taken on feeder methods.  However, Kev continued fishing the pole and won the match with a 6-2-0 margin.  There were squeals of delight when Red managed to land a giant crayfish, I didn’t land one but the b*st*rds sat on the bottom knitting with my rig, which was a total write off once I struck, I did see the pincers rise above the water and then it dropped all the stitches and left me with a mono-filament birds nest.  Meanwhile Rob on the other bank gave his the size 10 treatment, see you Jimmy, splash!
The result means Baz stays top of the leader board but the chasing pack are closing the gap. Don’t forget to give this page a rating by clicking on the title and selecting the 5 star rating and you can leave comments too.
