7th Over-50s Match – Wedgehill (5th August 2021)
Fourteen members used all the fishable pegs on Wedgehill Middle Pond. The day was overcast and after two hours the drizzle turned to heavy showers with a blustery wind. John Read (72lb) on peg 17 caught carp steadily on method feeder through the afternoon to top A section. Dave Perkins (60lb) won B section on peg 23 also used method feeder to the island. Generally catches were better than in the previous matches with 6 weights over 50lbs , though some poor results were also recorded. Colin Seviour (53lb) included a fine 11lb common and secured the Leffman Cup with 9 points that included 4 section wins plus a second and third. Jon Bass (57lb) was Series Runner-up with 12 points (2 firsts, 3 seconds and a fourth), just overtaking Keith Baker with 13 points (2 firsts, 2 seconds, 1 third and 1 fourth).

Hucklesbrook 22nd July 2021
2021 Veterans Match – Holtwood (14th July)
Ten members enjoyed this annual event in the warm sunshine at Holtwood, though catches were affected by the recent storms which had raised levels in all ponds. Keith Baker (10lb 1oz) continued in good form with lots of small roach and rudd from Millers 24 to comfortably win the Sir John Mills Trophy. Dave Perkins (7lb 1oz) was runner-up from Shambles 4 with a similar catch and Mike Gotobed (6lb 9oz) was 3rd with mainly small tench. Dave Perkins fired-up the BBQ and members enjoyed sausages, burgers and a modest drink afterwards provided by CAC as the Cup and prosseco were presented to Keith Baker. Fittingly, Dave Perkins also had a bottle of prosseco for being runner-up.
Next match in the Over-50s Series is at Hucklesbrook roadside bank (Thurs 22nd July), 11am draw. Please contact Dave White (07719654103) or Jon Bass (01305 852585) by Tues 20th July to book your peg.
Over-50s Wedgehill 8th July
Holtwood 24th June
Eleven members fished on a warm calm day with sunny intervals. Holtwood was looking great, with several repaired platforms, grass cut and strimmed. Catches were lower than in the previous Holtwood match with fewer tench though Colin Seviour (13lb 4oz) again easily won his section this time with roach on Shambles 4. Dave Perkins (6lb 14oz) made a welcome return celebrating with a section win from Millers Pool 26, taking small rudd plus two late tench.
Leading the Over-50s Series after 4 matches are Keith Baker and Keith Rawlings both with 9 points, followed closely by Colin Seviour (10 points) and Alan Snook (11points). Next match in the Series is at Wedgehill (Thurs 8th July), please contact Dave White (07719654103) or Jon Bass (01305 852585) to book your place.
Hucklesbrook 10th June
Wedgehill 27th May
The latest match in the over 50s series was held at Wedgehill on Thursday 27th May
There was keen anticipation before the match as carp swum lazily around the middle lake basking in the warm sun. Surprisingly, few were willing to feed and were perhaps thinking about spawning. We always need an excuse when not catching much!
Dave White (26lb) drew the unfancied dam area to win with a modest catch, followed by Mike Gotobed (23lb 4oz) that include a fit bream that leapt a couple of time before being landed. The dual for 3rd ended in a draw (17lb) between Alan Snook and Keith Rawlings with Alan later discovering a small unweighed roach still in his silverfish net, oops! Keith kindly donated a set of digital scales for our use in future matches.
Members on the top lake and not in the match failed to catch any carp, but enjoyed the fine weather. Our next Over-50s event is on the roadside bank at Hucklesbrook on 10th June, pending the water re-opening in time (11am draw, fishing noon to 5pm).
Please book in through Dave White (07719654103) or Jon Bass (01305 852585) by Tues 8th June
Holtwood Pools 13th May
The best result at Holtwood for some years with all twelve members competing weighing-in a total of over 90lb. On his first CAC match Colin Seviour (21lb 8oz) had a clear win taking 10 tench on feeder from Millers Pool. Jon Bass (15lb 12oz) was runner-up fishing the pole for another 8 tench from Millers Pool. ‘Mr Reliable’ Keith Baker (11lb 6oz) was third taking mainly small fish from Shambles Pool closely followed by another newcomer Glyn Jones (10lb 12oz) and Keith Rawlings (10lb 9oz).
Members expressed their hope that Dave Perkins will be out of intensive care soon, on the road to recovery and looking forward to fishing again after his sudden illness. The next match in the Over-50s Series will be at Wedgehill (Thurs 27th May) with the draw at 11am, fishing noon until 5pm. In the short-term please book-in by the 25th May either through Dave White (07719654103) or Jon Bass (01305 852585). The top pond will remain unpegged and available to members not in the match.
