Another good turn out this week with even more new faces fishing with us for the first time. They must have heard about the friendly members, well run matches and light hearted banter – either that or they have found out that we’re pool fodder…😂 Regardless, it’s nice to see new faces fishing the matches. The match this week was at the popular Kingfisher Pond at Beechwood, with more good pegs than bad. There are always good weights and plenty of close battles and this was no exception with only ounces separating anglers at the end.
Junior member Ollie Flindall drew next to club favourite and all round good guy Craig Logan and he wanted revenge for the last time they fished by each other. Craig Radford offered £10 to Ollie if he could beat Craig – easy money some might say. Ollie got off to a great start catching three quick Carp in the first 15 minutes and putting the pressure on Craig. Unfortunately for Craig he had Golden Oldie – AKA” The Tornado” – Ade Knighton pegged the other side of him, who was having problems playing Carp in his own peg and must have thought it would be easier playing them in Craig’s. Apparently those WHITE CARP are hard to play! A letter of complaint has been sent to the committee.
Meanwhile, Adam Logan on peg 12 and Ian Bradley on peg 13 were having a good battle matching each other fish for fish and only ounces between them both at the end. There was another good battle going on at the top end of the pond between Ian Moon, Dave Perry, Lee Daft, and “The Treble” John Lowe – all four were catching well on the pole and at the end all four where admitting to 50lb plus. First place went to Lee Daft on peg 24 – this was his first match with the club. Lee fished meat down both his margins for most of the match catching Carp to 6lb. Second place went to Dave Perry on peg 26 – Dave switched between fishing pellet shallow and on the deck before moving to his margins. Third Place went to Adam Logan – Adam fished the feeder for most of the match but also caught odd Carp on the pole. Special mention this week goes to Ollie who not only beat Craig off the next peg but also beating all the anglers around him, and was just out of the main money – well done Ollie.
