Kelvin’s great year for Tench and Ide continues at Slough House Farm

Continuing a great year for Tench this time at Slough House with these six, biggest 4lb 9oz including (pretty sure) my old mate “Chin Tench”.


Also weighed these two Ide at 2-6-4 and 2-10-8 s two for just over 5lb.

 

First Coaching Day for Angling Coaching Initiative – 19th May

Our first coaching day for ACI, and what a result. The first event for our voluntary coaching for Juniors and Adults alike, and the culmination of a lot of hard work by everyone, but this was the fun part!

We had 11 learners and seven of us to teach them, on a beautiful sunny day over at a small enclosed, tree lined water, Slough House West just north of Maldon. So all the tackle we’d acquired or bought with the Sport England Grant finally got an outing and did us proud for results. Everyone caught fish from the start, with roach being the main species, there was one lovely tench, plus perch, rudd and a few gudgeon and even the odd eel too. The carp though proved elusive, even the one that was hooked proved too much for the four metre elasticated whip it was hooked with and made its escape.

We heard lovely comments about how the day went, such as from one Dad “he had a great time, he’s been bragging to everybody he caught more fish than me!”  One girl caught far more than her brother too and she delighted in reminding him of it throughout the whole time.

Everyone loved it, and are rebooking to join us again. Interested? Then join us; enrol, book in with us or let us know if you’d like to learn more. Whether you’re just starting out, or wanting to get back into fishing again now, we cater for every level of ability! Join us long-term too, we can expand your skills as far as you wish!

Kelvin’s best ever day at Rook Hall

After raking out endless blanket weed at Rook Hall today, ended up having my best ever day at Rook Hall. 18 Tench, biggest 4.75lb smallest 2.5lb and a few Rudd and Roach. Too many for my unhooking mat so I made a fish friendly mat/container out of all the weed I had pulled out. Don’t think I’ll ever better that, have to find a new favourite venue now – Kelvin
