Season 2017/18

With 8 matches in the season, these matches are held at good venue’s and are very enjoyable. Sadly in recent times the number of members attending these matches has dwindled and the Committee would like to advertise these events to all Female members to attend either at the Ladies Matches or with your Partner at the Mixed Pairs Matches.

To book a place at these Matches, details of which are all shown on the 2017/2018 fixture list in your handbook, or for any queries please call Nick Mitchell on 07970 606558

Attendance to these matches would be greatly appreciated and would help save the events from cancellation.

Ladies Match

Ladies Match – Windmill Lakes Field Lake – 23rd June 2018

Numbers were a little low due to other commitments with only two attending, other than that it was a lovely sunny day but none of the Carp or Bream were showing for the Ladies, however have a look at the Juniors report as they had more luck.  Silvers were the order of the day with some nice Rudd and Roach showing too.  As said the numbers are still low but we know there are plenty of Lady members out there, so we would love to see you attending these matches.  The end results of this match are as follows with some photos too.

Mixed Pairs Match

Sadly due to various personal issues, we had two late cancellations for this Pairs match, which left us a short term blip.  There was some evidence of the Tench that this venue is known for, however they stopped as quickly as it started and it was then left to the smaller fish to make up the weights, which at the end of the match were as follows and there are some photos of the weigh ins, which are always filled with the happy banter.

Ladies Match

We had three Ladies attending today which was great and we were all looking forward to fishing this venue with great swims and lily pad areas the catches should have been good however with the really sunny weather and the match not starting until 10am by the time we started they were not feeding. We all persevered until the end however the final catches were not great and as follows with some photos of fishing and weigh in also attached.

Mixed Pairs Match

First match of the 2018/19 season and we attended this popular venue and had three pairs in attendance, which was really good, although we would love more members to attend.

The May weather sadly let us down as it started with bright sunshine for set up but near enough as soon as the whistle started the match, the heavens opened and we had rain until the match ended. There were mixed results around the lake with some people catching at the start with others not and then with a flip of a coin it all changed. It was great to have Wendy and Alan returning to pairs matches following Wendy's successful shoulder surgery and it was great to meet up with everyone and even with the bad weather had a really enjoyable, fun day.

The results were as follows

Kathy Chisnall & Nick Mitchell                     51lb 15oz
Debbie &Kevin O'Flynn                                 47lb 12oz 
Wendy & Alan Upson                                     37lb 0oz
