Glebe 2015 Update

Glebe details
- £50 Deposit due to be paid to Keith by 28th Feb at the latest, it was going to be by 1st Feb but due to the fact I didn’t get this note out early enough I have extended it. If you haven’t paid reserves will be allowed on.
- Final payments will be due by Monday July 13th again reserves will be allowed on if you haven’t.
- Final dates agreed as Wednesday Aug 5th to Friday August 7th
- Limited to 23 anglers
- On Wednesday and Friday we are on Lakes 5,6,7 and Thursday Lake 1,4
- We were looking at dropping the Longshoot and going elsewhere but given I managed to get the rooms at £15 per person rather than last years £29.50 per person its the Longshoot again this year. The only difference is breakfast is not included so you can a) pay £7 at Longshoot b) go to Morrisons (about £4-£5) or c) go to Pat’s cafe in Barwell (about £5-£7)
- Two nights and three days fishing will be £100
- One night and two days fishing will be £65 (Billy and Alec)
- Fishing times to be confirmed but probably something like draw 9.30am first day 11.30 – 5.30 with draw in the bar the night before on the others
- We agreed to do the Ronny Ashbrook trophy on the Thurs-Fri and with 23 fishing its yet to be finalised but we will probably do something like “base it on overall weight and agree teams of 2,3,4 based on seeding to even it out i.e. 3 teams 4 lower seeds v 3 teams 3 higher seeds
- As usual I will try and work out some way to peg the sections and lakes to have it seeded (I’ll have to think about how best to sort 23 though!)

Any questions let me know.

24th Jan - WL6 Lloyds Kingfisher

The banter started at breakfast with Rick apologising for being late as he had stopped to get diesel......the room fell silent and most anglers realised Rick van Diesel had committed the cardinal sin by getting fuel before fishing and no one wanted to shake hands. Rick laughed it off saying he'd wash em and he'd be fine to much amusement that 'didn't he realise diesel was porous and it was too late'

On to the fishing and a reasonable day with the low sun a problem on the house side and a difficult side wind at times but still able to fish 14-16m. Steve Brew drew on the house side on the top island and after a few indications and foul hookers eventually worked out how to snare a few, mainly on the tip with corn and maggot to run out an easy winner with mainly carp and a few chub and skimmers for 32lb.

Jason Connah drew the far side on the first island and despite being plagued by foul hookers and small roach eventually some carp and chub arrived on the long pole line and Jason went on to beat the pegs either side by c5lb with a 19.5lb return. Ian S drawn on the house side and first island started well with an early chub and a carp at 16m on maggot before being roached out and then blinded out by the low sun. Having come closer and moved to avoid the sun a run of skimmers on pellet was enough to pip Ian Lloyd and Phil Henry to finish with 16.5lb.

Oh and Rick van Diesel.......well enough said.......chipshopped and a nasty slick was seen in his peg everytime he fed or baited up......even the ducks refused his fuel ridden bread......Come on coach you should know better.

A final word......welcome to Kieran Smith who has been out with us a few times already and he was taken into the heart of the club as a new member this week as he peppered the aerator with his feeder, several times landing it in the hole and he is know known as Kieran 'The Cube' Smith. Lots of hints and tips on how to flowed to much amusement as the casting was a bit like dobbing....lets try here, lets try there etc etc.....but all in a good spirit (and before anyone says it just like Simo!)...welcome Kieran 'The Cube', consider yourself duly inducted.

Only one more entrant to the KO 20lb challenge as Mr Brew joins Billy, Phil, Ian S, Dougie. Everyone has until April to weigh 20lb to qualify for the next round.


1st - Steve Brew - 32.4lb
2nd - Jason Connah - 19.5lb
3rd - Ian Simpson - 16.5lb
