Get Into Fishing – 24th July

On Saturday 24th July the club will be celebrating our 140th anniversary. 

On this date the Stock Pond will be closed to allow the Angling Trust to run a “Get into Fishing” event. Angling coaches will give 30 minutes of teaching to anyone wanting to get into fishing. There will be tackle to give away to juniors and they will then have the opportunity to try out our waters. If you would like a 30min slot click on the link:

There will be club clothing available to buy, a second hand tackle stall and a raffle with some fantastic prizes.

Hope to see you Saturday.


Robinswood Lake 2 -18th July

All eyes were on the draw this week after the Golden Peg was drawn on Peg 15. Peg 15 is an absolute flyer and frames most weeks and whoever was going to draw it had a really good chance of winning and collecting the bonus money. So when Ian Bradley drew it he couldn’t contain his excitement and was at his peg and set up in record time. The rest of us thought the worst and knew we had it all to do to beat Ian!

The match got underway and Craig Radford on Peg 8 had a Carp first put in but that was pretty much it as the first 2 hours were incredibly slow. The 3rd hour saw people starting to catch – Carl Wilson on Peg 3 and Tyla Reynolds on Peg 5 were matching each other fish for fish. Craig Radford was starting to catch down his margin and looked to be putting a big weight together. Ian Shaw on Peg 24 was also starting to catch down his margin but was having problems with lost fish.

Going into the final hour Club Favorite Craig Logan was catching well on his short line but all eyes were on Craig Radford who was really bagging.

As for Ian Bradley, the curse of the golden peg struck again as he didn’t have a fish for the first two hours and had very little for the next three. He not only lost to the next peg but also lost two side bets with Craig Radford and Ian Shaw, who both couldn’t wait to get stuck into him.

Stanton Canal 4th July 2021

Another big attendance this week saw us using both sides of the Canal – Pegs 1 to 29.

Because the matches are always so close all eyes were on the draw to see who would get the golden peg and the lucky angler with the chance to with the extra winnings was Ian Shaw.  Ian was over the moon and knew he had a big chance with his Peg 21. 

The match got underway with Jim Marcer on Peg 13 catching an early Tench followed by a second soon after, which he unfortunately lost in the lilies.  As the match progressed news on the bank was Ian Shaw was catching and was admitting to a nice Barble and a Carp over 6lb.  Club favorite Craig Logan on Peg 11 was putting a few fish together but was cursing losing a 6lb Tench at the net.  Everyone looked to be catching but in the end it would come down to who could catch the bonus fish to get them in the frame.

At the weigh in Craig Logan was winning until they got to Mick Burke on Peg 19 who was the last to weigh in.  Mick nearly didn’t fish the match due to feeling unwell but he was glad he did after having a fantastic day, catching a real mixed bag and a bonus Bream to top it off – well done Mick!
