Sweepstake, Milton Country Park, 21st May 2017

Sweepstake, Milton Country Park, 21st May 2017 Several of us had managed a practice outing to The Deep Pool during the preceding week, expecting catches like Jason’s 30 lb+ net of rudd 3 weeks earlier. Most, however, had not had a bite, the best result being [...]

Sweepstake, Mepal, 23rd April 2017 A few regulars were still in hibernation so we were down in numbers but Mark had been granted last minute leave from babysitting, because he said his wife found it a cinch and didn’t need him, and Dave Keedy paid a [...]

2016 Championship: Round 14

2016 Championship: Round 14 With several competitors having had very poor practice sessions during early March there was a fairly negative atmosphere at the initial gathering.

Sweepstake, The Cam, above Byron’s Pool, 19th February 2017

Sweepstake, The Cam, above Byron’s Pool, 19th February 2017 After such fantastic fishing during the two weeks before, this match was a test of patience for anyone. How can it be that on the coldest day of the year chub were lining up to be caught, [...]

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, [...]

2016 Championship: Round 11

2016 Championship: Round 11 After a very hard ‘practice’ session on Thursday my expectations were pretty low for good match weights, although they were raised slightly by an excited Trevor returning from pegging the swims reporting that fish were topping everywhere. Hopes were indeed on the up [...]

2016 Championship: Round 10

2016 Championship: Round 10 The colder overnight temperature of just 6°C was probably responsible for the much slower sport this week compared to our last few matches. Top weight of 7 lb went to Simon Deal who included a few decent rudd in his net to just [...]

2016 Championship: Round 9

2016 Championship: Round 9 Despite crystal clear water the fishing was excellent, even better than the last match at Upware with nearly 144 lb between the 17 anglers, an average just shy of 8½ lb a man. First place went to Glen Freeman with a stunning 25½ [...]

2016 Championship: Round 8 This proved one of our better matches so far this season, with over 100 lb caught between the 13 anglers, an average of nearly 8 lb each. The top weight of 13 lb 9 oz went to Trevor, surprisingly because he was complaining [...]
