Over 50’s Series

Hucklesbrook 10th June

On a warm overcast day twelve members attended and most got off to a fast start with sport fading after two hours. Catches averaged over 6lb of mainly good size roach plus a few bonus tench. Jon Bass (17lb 4oz) had 3 tench to top-up his net of roach and lost a fourth tench. On the next peg Keith Baker (11lb 10oz) took roach narrowly beating Colin Seviour (11lb 8oz) who included one tench amongst his roach.
The next match in the Series is scheduled for Holtwood (Thurs 24th June). Those wishing to fish please book-in by the Tuesday through Dave White (07719654103) or Jon Bass (01305 852585)

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.
