Charlie and Zoe Take the Prizes

Today, we held our 2nd junior match of the year at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries Lake 7, where we had 8 of our juniors taking part. Once again, we split the match up into 2 sections; Section 1 Advanced Juniors and Section 2 Up and Comers.

With a decent weather forecast for a change, we were hoping for an enjoyable day on the bank. The draw some a few repeat pegs from match 1 (Charlie and Peter), with Lucy in her first ever competition drawing the β€˜death peg’ (as sportingly informed by her older brother – but fortunately actually related to a different lake 😊).

The match started off fairly slowly across the whole lake, but then each person started to work out how their peg was working. Surprisingly, it varied significantly across the lake with maggot working in some areas and pellet in others – plus we had a few showers that weren’t welcome.

In Section 1 – Advanced Juniors, Charlie took the top spot with a weight of 43lb 3oz followed in second by Harry L with 12lb 13oz.

In Section 2 – Up and Comers, Zoe took first place with a weight of 34lb 12oz (individual PB), second place went to Rory with 18lb 11oz, and 3rd place was Peter with 12lb 8oz.

Well done to all who took part today especially Charlie and Zoe on their great wins 🎣🎣🎣🎣. Also, a special well done to Lucy fishing her first ever match and working hard all the way through to the very end.

Thanks to all the coaches and supporters for giving up their time to help today, much appreciated. And a special mention to Colin, who has become the clubs diving champion today πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Cheers

Team Rammy Take the Win

Whitmore East Canal was the chosen venue of City Social for the second leg of the inter-club match. Following on from our home leg on Bradshaw Fishery Lake 4, Team Rammy were trailing by 15lb 6oz, so the guys were up against it. As normal Lee ordered in some foul weather, but tried to pass it off this time as not being his fault!! The word on the street was that heavy feeding was going to be the order of the day, and so gallons of maggots were ordered in to make sure we were all prepared.

Well, it turned out that the complete opposite was to be the case, with heavy feeding killing the swim straight away. It proved to be a tough day fishing, testing everyone to their limits to work out how to get a bite, but the boys did us proud by winning the match with 199lb 15oz to City Social 118lb 14oz.

This gave Team Rammy the win by 81lb 1oz, which meant that we retain the trophy for another year by an overall weight of 66lb 11oz. Well done to Gary and his team of 10.

And a special well done to Charlie, one of our three Junior musketeers representing the club, on winning the match overall with 48lb 3oz (this lad is one to watch out for in the future).

Thanks to Tom and the anglers from City Social for once again brilliant enjoyable inter-club. See you all again next year.

Great Turn Out for 1st Junior Match

On Sunday 19th May we held our first Junior Match of the year at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries Lake 7 with a full complement of 12 juniors taking part. With a wide range of experience on show we split the Juniors up into 2 sections, Section 1 Advanced Anglers and Section 2 Up and Coming Anglers. Lake 7 can be a bit tricky, but if you find the right approach on the day it can be productive.

The sun Gods shone down on everyone and a very enjoyable days fishing was had by all.

The winner of the Advanced Anglers was Harry B with a weight of 30lb 4oz
And the winner of the Up and Coming Anglers went to Jess B with a weight of 22lb 10oz

 

Well done to all who took part and a big thank you goes out to all the Coaches, supporters and parents for the help and support.

The next junior match will be Saturday 1st June on Bradshaw Lake 6

A Hat-trick of Wins for Jason Wright

Saturday 18th May saw our fourth senior match of the season for the G&N Auto trophy, held on Sycamore Rowan with 10 anglers taking part. This water can be tricky venue as the fish tend to spook very easily, but there are a good few lumps to be caught so judging the right tackle and approach can be difficult.

Despite the forecast, the day proved to be quite pleasant which made a change from the previous matches!!

Results:
1st place and completing his hattrick of wins was Jason Wright with 50lb
2nd Graham Walsh 38lb 12oz
3rd Simon Ward 35lb 9oz

Well done to all who took part… Next week we take on City Social in the second leg of the interclub at Whitmore (East Canal).

Senior Match 3 Results

The third Senior match, (and the first League match) took place on Lake 9 at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries on Saturday 27th April. Although the Match Secretary (Lee Long) had informed everyone that he had booked the weather, I’m not sure where he had booked it from as it was extreme; incorporating rain, wind and being bitterly cold. Congratulations to all 17 anglers who stuck it out in the testing conditions.

Following his win in Match 2, Jason Wright again took the honors with 46lb 6oz 

2nd place went to Matty Waddy with 43lb

3rd place was Lee Long with 39lb 15oz

Section wins went to Gary Wright (again) and Jake Pope.

Well done to the framers and all who took part.

 

Next match is a 10 man club match against City Social on Sunday 12th May, Bradshaw Hall Fisheries – Lake 4. Captain Gary Wright will be notifying those who have made the team over the next couple of days.

Second Senior Match Results

The second Senior match took place on Lake 6 at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries on Saturday 13th April. The weather had been improving over the previous few days, but a combination of the number of anglers taking part (16 out of 18 pegs used) and the cold wind meant that yet again it was going to be hard work.

This proved to be the case, with the wind in particular playing having with fishing at distance and the cold water not conducive to the fish feeding.

Winner of the match with 32lb 12oz was Jason Wright

2nd place went to Brent Cargill with 20lb 15oz

3rd place was Aaron Wright with 15lb 14oz

Section wins went to Gary Wright and Barry Unsworth and Paul Choppy missed out by 5oz again!!!!

Well done to the framers and all who took part.

 

Next match is on Saturday 27th April, Bradshaw Hall Fisheries – Lake 9, which is the first League match of the season. Draw is at 9am sharp – if you are late, we will draw without you.

First Senior Match Results

The Senior match season kicked off at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries on Lake 6. Due to the number of anglers taking part it was a pole only match. Normal service was quickly resumed with Lee Long drawing a flyer and Paul Corser stuck off in a corner!!

The recent increase in temperatures had seen some bigger weights coming off the Open competitions, but it proved to be hard session with the water going very quiet for long periods of time. However, everyone stuck at it and it was good to shake off the cobwebs and to knock the dust off the equipment.

Winner of the Royston Cup with 39lb 9oz Aaron Wright who fished Peg 18 worm on the deck at 14.5mtrs

2nd Barry Hill with 33lb 15oz Peg 10

3rd Ste Kenyon with 33lb 7oz Peg 7

Section wins went to Lee Long and Paul Corser

Well done to the framers and all who took part.

Next match is on Saturday 13th April, Bradshaw Hall Fisheries – Lake 6
