This was our annual Christmas match. Fished over 4 hours, so not a bad result considering the recent weather.   We had a fantastic table of goodies brought in by members and many thanks to the committee for their donation. So everyone walked around the table and took whatever they fancied. A good day was had by all.

Unfortunately one of the DNW’s was Roger Butler who had a fall near the Tesco’s staging and he fractured a bone in the lower leg and ankle. He is in hospital at the moment. Our best wishes go to him. The things some people do so that they don’t have to fish next week’s match at Totham Pit.

Howells | 21 Oct 2014 | 20 anglers attempted to fish

This match was switched from the Tesco canal in an attempt to move small carp from Howells to the neighbouring stock pond, unfortunately the weather had other ideas.  Keith takes up the story:

We had 20 anglers around the lake at 9.15am . Conditions were pretty poor but we started fishing at 10.15.  As the day progressed the weather got worse. The car park area to the entrance became impossible to fish because of waves in excess of 6″ high made any presentation impossible, also becoming dangerous with branches coming down. By 12.30 9 anglers had packed up understandingly.  At 1.30 I asked everybody left if any fish were caught?  Nobody had had a bite.  Plenty of tackle was damaged.  I blew the whistle about 1.45 and nobody objected.  A very disappointing day was had by all. I rang Denise to get a message to Paul to tell him the tank would not be needed. I am sorry that there was no result but everyone had made an effort.  The change in the weather from the date that we made for the exercise had a great  deal to do with it.  My apologies for a disappointing day. Hopefully next August/September will be better.

On arriving at Rook Hall the first thing we saw was a complete covering of floating weed, and the water was at the lowest that we have ever seen it. Never the less we drew and went to our pegs  and spent the next 30 minutes clearing our swims. Several  tench  were caught and the rest were roach, rudd and perch.  Some of the roach were good netters.

A very good result . Unfortunately because of the high attendance we had to fish 2 lakes. The best weights came from Wood lake. Lily lake’s weights were considerably less.  Our numbers have increased since the venue was booked, so the 2nd lake had to be used.

This has to be the most evenly matched result at Slough House Farm that I  have seen over the last 4 years. Several carp and tench were caught, also some quality bream but most catches consisted of ide, roach and some quality rudd.

Anticipation mounts at the draw for the Alf Burton trophy.

Carp were the main species on the day, very few silvers. Plenty of carp were lost. Surface fishing was difficult because of the algae on the surface.  There were a few trophy presentations from previous matches.

Not bad for the  first match of the river season with some reasonable weights.  Not a blank but there were plenty of perch including the best fish, a fine perch of 1lbs  0ozs 8dms caught by Les Drury. People are not putting their names down and making pegging difficult.  As you can see  numbers are getting high. There are  4 people on holiday and these numbers will certainly crowd some of our venues so make sure you get on the list and be safe.

The fishery had  plenty of swims and plenty of weed but we had a result. Some quality tench to 3lbs 4ozs.  A sign also that the Ide are packing on some weight.
Members going over to the fishery would be advised to take a weed rake with them, then  sit and weight for the bubbles.  Worms, corn and red maggots will do the business.

The best fish was a tench of  4lbs  4ozs  8dms this was caught by Bill Woollcott. The ends of the lake fished well and the front 4 pegs, but most of the back of the lake fished  bad. There was a few quality roach and perch caught  but mainly small roach and  rudd were the order of the day. Warmer weather will almost certainly improve catches. It was good to see 20 bums on seats, and with still 6 people on holiday etc.

Being a silver fish match naturally the carp wanted  to get some of the action. Most of the anglers were fishing with light tackle so none were landed.  Casters hemp and maggot were used by most.

Nice to see 19 people enjoying themselves. Best fish for the £5 was a 1lb 2ozs roach caught by Jimmy Edwards, also a bream of 2lbs 13ozs. Jack Morley had the Golden Peg which was no .1 but he had a good net of gudgeon.

Needless to say  it was not a good day. We were supposed to fish Paper Mill Lock but as you know the Chelmer was carrying flood water. So we changed to Brown’s Wharf,  I checked it out Monday and found 10 foriegn  visitors with caravans and cars had parked themselves along the bankside so we could not fish there. So I had to change to the convenient Tesco’s.

Graham  Webber was the winner  with 2lbs  15ozs  0dms and he also won the series of points matches with a total of  108 points  winning the series Salver.  He also drew the golden peg no 10, and guess what he went on and took the pool of £80, also the biggest fish a 9oz perch for £5 and the sweep for £15. He is still in the clouds.  His namesake Brian Webber had 106 points for 2nd.  3rd in the points was Dave Harley with 105 points.  Then we had our monthly meal at the Duke of Wellington, Graham did not buy drinks all round tho’.

This is Allan Knight going to the island and getting his top 3 back. We were fishing Oakford and think he was groundbaiting the margin.  We do not encourage swimming on our own lakes.
