Stanton – Roughs Pond 01/08/21

The match this week was on Roughs pond and due to the popularity of home matches it was full to capacity yet again.  The match got off to a great start with people catching from all over the pond.

Shaun Fogg on Peg 1 was making a good start catching Carp, fishing to the net on pellets.  Carl Wilson on Peg 24 had a quick look down his margin and was straight into a Carp on corn.  Dieter Woodings on Peg 18 also got of to a good start catching a big Carp on his first put in.  There was also loads of silver being caught and everyone seemed to be catching.

As the match progressed Carl Wilson and Shaun Fogg were still catching well and looked to be the ones in front.  John Low on Peg 2 was starting to catch Carp, fishing paste and Ian Shaw on Peg 15 was catching in spells, going into the last hour.  Club Favorite Craig Logan on Peg 21 had been catching Skimmers steadily but was now starting to catch Carp and F1’s and was really putting the pressure on both Carl and Shaun.

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!
