Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 1 – Moss Farm (Maddison) – 24th Feburary 2019 – 16 fished

A new venue to start off a new season. The fog coming from Middlewich over to Irlam was like driving through pea soup, but all got there safe and sound, with the weather looking to clear up before the start.

A warm welcome from all the staff there and a great cafe on site.

Which a large breakfast at a very reasonable price, started the day off with a treat.

With a GREAT turn out again […]

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 10 – Old Hough (Upper Benbo) – 19th November 2018 – 17 fished

Another great breakfast with 12 out of 17 of us showing up to get some warm food at the Turnpike…

With a draw slightly earlier that scheduled and a great venue with no need to take any pegs out, 17 of the pegs out of the 24 were drawn and fished.

With a cold start to the morning, the hope was that the weather would warm up, with the sun coming out and temperatures […]

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 9 – Fields Farm (Big Beam) – 21st October 2018 – 17 fished

Well what an amazing start to the day, full English, unlimited toast, juice, tea/coffee after that fishing was just second best !!

Meeting down at the lake, most of us having never fished it, advice was taken from those who had, and we decided to take all the pegs down the centre of the lake.  Reports of plenty of room and easy access being the options.  (this later transpired that maybe we shouldn’t […]

30th September – Buntys

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 8 – Buntys – 30th September 2018 – 14 fished

Weather reports were dismal on the lead up to this match, with a heavy chance we were all going to get wet… but the Midport AC luck held out and a small drizzle early on was all we got.

With most of the league never fished or even seen this venue, this match would not be down to insider info, it would all depend on the peg and the methods used.

A few moans from the “old […]

9th September 2018 – Old Hough (Lucky and Prospect)

First

Third

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 7 – Old Hough – 9th September 2018 – 17 fished

With this being a local venue for our club, there was promise of weights upwards of 100lb in previous matches (not from our club thou).

A lot of entries had been fishing these lakes for the last few weeks, wanting to test baits and tactics before this big match.

I glorious day showed some promise.  Deciding to take all evens with 1 extra peg on Lucky and the draw was made.  A lot of noise about […]

5th August 2018 – Blundells (Hawthorn and Willow)

First

Second

Third

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 6 – Blundells Fishery – 5th August 2018 – 16 fished

A short walk round the 2 lakes did show some promise.  With a few good reasons why we had both lakes booked as we would have struggled to get all 16 of us on one.

Pegging out was done and the draw a little delayed, but all setup.

Few fishermen (or boys) moaning about their peg, as they struggled to fit their huge boxes.  But by 9.30 all-in and settled.

Fishing was slow to start with Hawthorn […]

8th July Border Fisheries – Meridian Canal (20-64)

First

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 5 – Border Fisheries – 8th July 2018 – 18 fished

What a fantastic day !!

We started at 7.30am in the Cafe for a full English at the very reasonable price of £5.50..

With full bellies we drew at the water, and what a water it was.  The were carp topping all over the canal, every peg had something to give.

With the blazing sun, the fish looking hungry, we knew it was not going to disappoint.

Shortened match of only 5.5hrs […]

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 4 – Fields Farm – 10th Jun 2018 – 17 fished

Not the match lake, but that didn’t matter.

The sun was bright, the day was hot.. a little too hot.

Seems the big fish wanted to stay down one end of the lake, where the was only 1 person, and it had to be a new comer with beginners luck on his side.

With almost all catching, and those that didn’t catch, caught the sun instead.

Looking to the next match now, […]

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 3 – Holmston Hall – 15th Apr 2018 – 17 fished

Well what a venue…

All panic on the runup with only 18 spaces was not a problem, with only 17 managing to make this match.

Early morning recy showed that peg 4 was in need of some pruning, as such was left out of the draw.  All pegs were hard, stable standing, with some nice boggy grass to get to them.

Fish were rising, the air was cool.. This was going […]

Pegs, Weights and Points

Match 2 – Brookside fisheries – 25th Mar 2018 – 18 fished across Kingfisher and Meadow

What a lovely start to the day, losing 1 hour in bed with almost all fishermen remembering to put their alarm clocks forward.

The sun was shining, the owner of Brookside walked us around the 2 lakes ensuring we had the right pegs for the best chance.  10 on Kingfisher and 8 on Meadow hoping to be a great day.

Draw at 8am went great, with […]
