As soon as we have information to share we will put it on our social media and notice boards. Please don’t listen to idle gossip. The Stanton Fishing Club is one of the oldest fishing clubs in the country with over 140 years of history, the committee are very much looking forward to the future of the club.

Winter League – 25/10/2020

This was the first round of the Winter League and because of it’s popularity the match was split over Roughs Pond and the Canal.  The league is being run on points, with one point for a section win down to five points for last in section.

With the temperature dropping and the cold rain the day before it looked like it was going to be hard going, and it was difficult to know which water would fish better.

By the end of the match it was apparent that the anglers on Roughs Pond definitely had the better day, with nearly all competitors having a good days fishing and in with a chance of good section points.  The Canal on the other hand was really hard going, with leaves making good presentation impossible for the anglers pegged in the low number.

Roughs section 1 – won by Pete Beard on Peg 5.  Pete started the match on maggots catching small roach and skimmers.  He then dropped onto chopped worm and casters line, catching a bounce Tench and Bream.

Roughs Section 2 – won by Sue Reid on Peg 14.  Sue carried on her great run of form framing yet again.  Sue fished the pole feeding soft pellets and switching between hook baits to catch Carp and F1s.

Roughs section 3 – won by Adam Logan on Peg 21.  Adam started the match fishing soft pellets catching the odd Carp and big F1s, before switching to his chopped worm line and again catching Carp.  He continued to switch between the two, not only win his section but the match overall.

Canal section 1 – won by John Aldred on Peg 3.  John fished pole catching odd Roach before hooking into a bonus Bream.

Canal section 2 – won by Craig Logan on Peg 17.  Craig fed ground bait over two lines at the start and rotated between the two, catching small Bream and Roach for the whole match fishing.

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.

1st  Craig Logan – 95lb 3oz

2nd  Ian Shaw – 64lb 15oz

3rd  Rob Wright – 45lb 13oz

4th  Andy Kerry – 38lb 3oz

Section 1  Tony Males – 24lb 7oz

Section 2  Ian Moon  – 35lb 8oz
