June 6th – Beechwood Kingfisher

This was the first match of the Summer League, it was nice to see many returning faces and a few new ones.

As we arrived at the pond it was clear that the Carp only had one thing on their minds and it was spawning!

The match got under way with Tony Males hooking into a fish straight away from his margin but that was it, it as if the pond was void of fish. As the match progressed Craig Logan on Peg 32 was starting to put a few fish together, fishing pole to the Island.

However, it wasn’t until the last couple of hours of the match when people were starting to catch the odd Carp, Carl Wilson on Peg 14 caught a couple of quick Carp on the feeder, then a switch to pole fishing shallow saw him catch 3 more. Jim Marcer on Peg 36 was starting to catch the odd carp but it was last year’s Summer League champion Ian Bradley who was making a real charge – Ian was fishing pole to the Island and catching big Carp but it wasn’t enough to to catch Club Favourite Craig Logan who took 1st place.

Condolences to Ade Knighton, Mick Burke, Dave Perry, and John Low for blanking…. You wouldn’t think it possible to not catch a single fish at this time of year – better luck next time chaps 😂

Well done June for getting the better of your better half yet again.. 

1st  Craig Logan – 87lb 10oz

2nd  Ian Bradley – 61lb 15oz

3rd  Jim Marcer – 26lb 03oz

It’s the responsibility of every club member to read the rules before fishing. Recently there have been a number of members caught breaking many of the rules by our bailiffs. The rules are there for the welfare of the fish and to give fellow members a relaxing days fishing without confrontation from others. Anyone breaking the rules or fishing without a book will be asked to leave.

What a fantastic league this has turned out to be with more than half of the competitors in with a chance of framing going into the last match. Because of the fantastic attendance over £2,400 has been paid out over the 6 matches.

A message from our sponsor…….


I would like to start by introducing myself to all members. My name is Neil Wright and a fellow member of Stanton Fishing Club. It isn’t just the fishing that attracted me to the club, where else in the area can you find 3 secluded ponds and canal stretch surrounded by trees and wildlife. I actually feel honoured to be a member of this club!


My 40-year career has been in the clothing industry so it is in my blood that fellow members would be equally as proud to display the club logo on their fishing attire. After discussion with the committee, we produced a small range of samples which you may have already viewed on this Facebook page. I have to say, after just one hour the response was amazing and I thank you for making your comments.


It appears that many of you are quite eager to start displaying the club logo as soon as possible which is a fantastic reaction. The initial range of products will be live on our website next week and are aiming for a launch date of Wednesday 3rd February.


The committee have made the decision to offer 2 colours, Grey or Green in a range of different items such as Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Polo shirts, Shell jackets, winter hats and peak caps. (No other colours available unless announced by the committee) By offering just 2 colours, it keeps the price down and keeps the ‘uniformed’ look running through the club. Other items may be added throughout the year but the colour range must remain as Grey or Green.


Where to buy? It couldn’t be easier or more convenient for you to get these products…….
