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 [...]

2016 Championship: Round 7

2016 Championship: Round 7 We were down on numbers with some on holiday (Ian and Kevin) and others traumatised (Rob having spent three hours on the old west earlier in the week) We arrived on a warm day with some decent cloud cover with a degree of [...]

2016 Championship: Round 6

2016 Championship: Round 6 To say that for me this match didn’t quite go to plan would be an understatement. I arrived early to find myself unable to open the padlock, a frustrating 5 minutes only ended when Trevor, smiling his head off, showed me how. Be [...]

2016 Championship: Round 5

2016 Championship: Round 5 Before the whistle, under near perfect conditions, Steve Palmer was practicing for night fishing by plumbing the depth with his eyes closed, hypnotised trying to feel when he’d hit bottom as his head nodded in synch with his pole(!) This proved a big [...]

2016 Championship: Round 4

2016 Championship: Round 4 It’s not unusual to report incidents about raking your swim and after this match there is clearly still much to be learned.  Hearing of others loosing rakes because they had forgotten to hold on to the rope when ‘casting’, poor John Reed tied [...]

2016 Championship: Round 3

2016 Championship: Round 3 Kevin Saunders certainly made the most of his end peg swim near the A14 bridge this week; his 39 lb net being almost as much as the other 18 anglers could manage in total!  His best three bream weighed 12 lb 12 oz, [...]

2016 Championship: Round 2

2016 Championship: Round 2 Conditions were near perfect for this week's match and expectations were high as practice sessions during the week had yielded tench to nearly 4 lb, bream to 3 lb and plenty of good rudd. After much heavy raking and weed clearance there was [...]
