Match 13 – Willowmarsh 1/09/2019

Dragon Fly Pool

15 fished

Martin ensured this one didn’t get away.

Guy managed to land most of the fish he hooked at Willowmarsh on Sunday. He weighed in 54-0 to take 1st place in the frame. He finished ahead of Billy and Simon who both put 36-8 onto the scales, to claim joint second place.
There were many stories of loads of lost BIG fish causing frustration among those that were catching. Bites were few and far between for most of the club members which made things worse, waiting long periods for bites, before being smashed – whether you were fishing feeder, pellet waggler or pole short in the margins, or just in front of you. If they had all been netted it could have been a different match, and I’m sure the biggest fish of the year would have featured at this venue.

Guy opened up the lead at the top of the leader board over Terry who is now 14 points behind. We weighed in a total of 306lb at this match.

Match 14 – Willow Marsh 30/09/2018

15 fished

Dragonfly Pool

Although the weather was pretty favourable, Dragonfly pool didn’t fish well with a lot of us struggling for bites.  Many different methods were put to use, as we all rang the changes. Swapping between long pole, shallow / short pole on the deck, pellet and cage feeder, bomb and pellet waggler.  Most methods would produce but not with any consistency.  Rob was the eventual winner, pipping Guy by 6lb with Martin catching well in the last hour landing 3 carp for just over 30lb making up his final weight.

Note that the next match is a pool change we are on Chestnut pool at Cob House.

A reminder to all anglers to return any trophies as we move into the last few matches of the season.  Time to lovingly, clean and polish them for the last time; before returning them to Trev, before the next presentation night.

We weighed in a total of 284lb. Read more of this post

Normal service resumed as Rob and Kev piled on the points at Willow Marsh on Sunday.  As soon as the pegs were drawn, almost everyone had Rob down for the win as he drew the end peg and had one of the islands in front of him,  everyone except Kev and Jack probably. The end result means that Rob extended his lead over Kev at the top of the leader board to three points, he’s now got 102 points.  Jack was third in the frame with 35-06. Simon had three double figure carp to finish in fourth and probably would have framed if he’d landed another ‘lump’ out of the margins.

It was like Polling day all over again, a bright day, a very good turnout and a good day for the two Scottish anglers.
Rob McKee trounced the rest of the competitors with a brilliant display of casting feeder through the large willow tree to the island to finish the match with 59-12.  In second place, Rob Gittins weighed in 25-0 closely followed by Martin on 24-0.  One casualty was Rob McKee’s landing net handle, probably from overuse.  The result means that Martin is still top of the leader board.

1.  Rob McKee

Peg: 30

Peg: 24

3.  Martin McHugh
