5th September – Interworks Match

This year the Interworks match was held at the Lake View fishery over three ponds.  For those that don’t know, the Interworks Match dates back over 60 years and was arranged by the steel industry.  Unfortunately, none of the iron works are still around but the last surviving fishing clubs still run the match.  We entered two teams this year but this is a venue that we don’t normally fish so needed some tips to help us out. The teams looked for inspiration from Team manager Ade Knighton.  Ade put a plan in place for the teams to fish for Ide on maggots, before trying to catch the carp later on in the match.  However, it turns out that there is only Ide in one of the ponds!  Needlessly to say we didn’t do very well.  Well done to the Stanton B team for beating the Stanton A team.

If anyone is interested in managing the teams next year feel free to get in contact, you can’t be any worse than the one we have now…  😉

Match Result 30th August – Robinswood Lake 2

Twenty anglers fished the match this week so this made for good pegging, with everyone having a spare peg to one side.  Ian Shaw had drawn the Golden Peg this week and fancied his chances on Peg 5.  Our last club match at this venue was won on Peg 18 so it was definitely the peg to draw again this time.  Craig Logan was the lucky recipient and he caught from the off, fishing down his margin.  Apart from Craig, it was a slow start for most.  The Tornado had drawn end Peg 32 and caught a quick carp but couldn’t keep his good run of form going.  Ian Moon had drawn Peg 14 and was getting plenty of bites but frustratingly couldn’t get them in the net.  In the 3rd hour several anglers starting to catch down their margins, including Ian Shaw who was now catching carp to 17lb.  Ian Moon was stating to land fish, Andy Kerry was putting a run of fish together and Dave Harris was now catching but frustratingly was losing more than he landed.  The final hour saw Rob Wright on Peg 9 catch really well, fishing pellets short.  The Tornado called time and it was clear Craig had won the match but it would go down to the scales to separate the rest of the competitors.

Match Result 24th August – Brailsford Horseshoe

Another good turn out this week.  The matches on Horseshoe are normally won with over 100lb and great back up weights.  All the anglers were eagerly awaiting the draw to find out what peg they had for the day but more importantly to make sure they hadn’t drawn next to The Tornado Ade Knighton after his previous week’s performance! Craig Logan was happy to draw two pegs away from him but unfortunately could still see and hear him… 😉

The match got off to a good start for Glen Homes – catching two quick carp – but everyone else seemed to be struggling.  With two hours gone it was turning out to be a real struggle with just the odd fish being caught and a lot of foul hooked fish being reported.  In the third hour Craig Radford on Peg 9 and Carl Wilson on Peg 8 were starting to put some fish together fishing shallow.  Also The Treble John Lowe on Peg 30 and The Tornado on Peg 31 were matching each other fish for fish on paste.  The Tornado was trying something new this week, playing fish standing up but the pond was still fishing incredibly hard.

The fourth hour saw Ian Bradley on Peg 20, Ian Shaw on Peg 21 and Danny Gaetto on Peg 17 all starting to catch in the margins.  Dave Perry on Peg 22 had drawn the Golden Peg this week but only seemed interested in catching crayfish, at least that what we all thought.  But then to my and everyone’s surprise it went a bit “Quentin Tarantino” 😱 – I felt sorry for the crayfish and will never look at him in the same way again….  He has now earned the nickname KILLER PERRY.

In the final hour Craig Radford and Ralph Marshall on Peg 11  looked to be the only ones catching, then with 20 mins left the fish finally turned up for club favourite Craig Logan down his margin and he made the most of it catching 5 more Carp.  There will be a collection this coming Sunday to buy a new battery for The Tornado’s watch as it seems to be running a bit fast!  Well done to Ollie for beating his Dad and good luck going back to school – it’s been nice having you attending the matches and we look forward to seeing you back in the holidays.

1st  Craig Radford – 51lb 5oz

4th  Craig Logan 30lb 9oz

Section 1  Ralph Marshall – 30lb 6oz
