18th April - Partridge - Covey 6

Result (proper weight details to follow once I have them from Rick)

1st - Steve Brew - 35.0lb
2nd - Mike Richardson - 31.5lb
3rd - Ian Simpson - 30.5lb

A bright and sunny day on Partridge but with a very cold easterly wind it meant everyone sat there with fleeces on and it made presentation difficult on this F1 dominated water. With lots of room as there are c40 pegs and only 20 fishing most set up lines across, down the track and to the next pallet.

Steve Brew had a few down the track but generally struggled until he went long to the next pallet with groundbait and worm and managed to catch not only F1's but also two lump carp (well for Partridge at 5lb). It was a close call but Steve ran out the winner with 35lb with Mike Richardson close behind with 31.5lb caught on the method and on the pole shallow with maggot. Mike was one of the few who could make it work on the day.......many tried and most failed. Ian Simpson ran out 3rd just pipping Paul Robinson and Dougie Walsh by a 1lb with 30.5lb. Ian caught well in spells on pellet across but they were a small stamp of fish compared to Steve and Mike's.

Well done to Trevor........section winner again on Covey 6......its becoming a habit.

11th April - Weston - Stretton

Result

1st - Ian Lloyd - 60.5lb
2nd - Jason Davies - 52.8lb
3rd - Keith Williamson - 48.8lb

Not much I can say by way of comment as I was off catching hippocrocopigs at Rolf's Lake with H, Steve B and Paul Robinson.

Looks like a good match though with an average of 36lb per angler.

The Wirral Raiders did okay in Oxford as well though coming back with a 1st, 2nd and 4th in the MFS match!!

I can't comment much not being there but the backing weights were very good too with an average of over 25lb per angler being a good start to the WBAC 2015 year (excluding the WL of course)

21st March - WL11 - Conway

The last match of the WL calendar had left the league with 3 possible winners and any one from six could be second but as it happened our newest and youngest member showed the field how to empty Conways margins fishing maggot for some right lumps on light gear and elastic and his win also meant the league never actually changed much on the final match.

Steve Brew drew next to the point yet again and proceeded to catch well on waggler and bomb for a few hours until the fish backed off to were it was safe i.e. Dougies peg. He chose to ignore the obvious signs they were shallow for over 3 hours before finally overcoming his illness, going shallow and bagging for the last 90 minutes (blew a flyer there Doug its won the last two matches!!!! lol)

League places based on the best 5 from 11 went to Ian Simpson who chipped away at the fast starting Phil Henry's leading and finally overcoming him at WL10 and neither improved this week so Ian took the title. A similar story for Billy Gore top three throughout the series with his first 5 matches being his best but stood still once it came down to dropping results. That said a sold third place for the ever consistent Mr Gore.

Result

1st - Kieran Smith - 78.4lb
2nd - Steve Brew - 54lb
3rd - Dougie Walsh - 40.0lb

Well done to Kieran with a tremendous weight and showed a clear pair of heels to the rest when it came to fishing the margins at Conway!!! A new PB for Kieran!!!!
