2017 Championship: Round 2

2017 Championship: Round 2 - Match 2, Reach Lode, Upware 18th June 2017 The hottest day of the year so far, combined with no flow at all other than from the very occasional emptying of the lock, meant dissolved oxygen levels were very low. This in turn [...]

2016 Championship: Round 13

2016 Championship: Round 13 This was probably the hardest fought match this season, with just 5½ ozs separating first from last of the eleven competitors. There was almost no flow, which with a freezing misty rain all day made conditions far from ideal, the few fish that [...]

2016 Championship: Round 12

2016 Championship: Round 12 Pleasure fishing during the weeks before resulted in clear predictions for where the winning weights would come from and for this reason the pools payout was split into two, one from those drawn on the boat moorings and one from those not.   Indeed, [...]
