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.

1st  Craig Radford – 133lb 13oz

2nd  Craig Logan – 55lb 11oz

3rd  Tyla Reynolds – 39lb 3oz

Section 1  Ian Bradley – 33lb 15oz

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!

1st  Mick Burke 18lb 13oz

Stanton – Roughs Pond 27/06/2021

The Match this week was on our own waters – Roughs Pond – and it was nice to see some new faces.  Our Club waters are the only waters that we match fish that can be classed as a real mixed fishery and it makes for a nice change from the Carp puddles.

The match got under way and Mick Burke on Peg 8 got off to a great start catching a number of Skimmers and a couple of Carp. Adam Logan started the match fishing shallow at 16m and was catching the odd Carp and F1s.  Going into the second hour Club Favourite Craig Logan on Peg 13 made a switch to fish his margin and was rewarded with a couple of Carp. Jim Mercer on Peg 3 and Dave West on Peg 15 both decided to fish for silvers and both were catching Roach and Skimmers regularly.  Going into the last hour it was incredible close with nobody looking to be running away with it.  Dieter Woodings on Peg 14  started to catch a few Carp and small Tench and Carl Haslam on Peg 18 caught some big Bream.  Ralph Marshall on Peg 10 caught a few carp from his margin swim.

Well done to Ade Knighton on catching his first Carp in 3 weeks 😃

1st  Adam Logan – 28lb 1oz

2nd  Ralph Marshall – 21lb 8oz

3rd  Carl Haslam  – 18lb 3oz

Robinswood – Lake 2 20-06-21

Club favourite Craig Logan was hoping to make it a hat-trick of wins this week, but as soon as he was given Peg one at the draw he knew he had little chance in competing with the better pegs on the lake. Even drawing the Golden Peg couldn’t improve his mood…

It was apparent from the off that the bottom end of the pond was fishing better with most competitors catching from the start with Dieter Woodings on Peg 15 and Mick Burke on Peg 24 getting off to a great start.

As the match progressed Jim Marcer on Peg 8 was starting to catch really well from his margin and looked to be the one to beat. Ian Bradley on Peg 5 was struggling to catch in open water so was having to fish into a snaggy area to get a bite but was catching.

Going into the last hour Jim was still catching well but Ian Shaw on Peg 10 was really making a move. Ian switched to fishing paste down his margin and it paid off catching several big Carp.

1st  Jim Marcer – 82lb 9oz

2nd  Ian Shaw – 57lb 1oz

3rd  Ian Bradley – 43lb 1oz

4th  Mick Burke – 36lb 4oz

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

4th  Carl Wilson – 24lb 07oz
