26th Glebe Payments

Just a reminder as we have at least one reserve desperate to get on the Glebe!

You have until Monday 13th July to pay Keith £100 in total.

NB - Billy, Alec £65 as only staying one night and fishing 2 not 3 days
       - Ste G £70 as booked his own accommodation before I did he was so keen!!

At July's meeting we will be drawing the teams for the Ronnie Ashbrooke trophy and sorting the pegging, lake draw and any seeding of anglers to make sure we can share the winnings around.

I am sure you can appreciate 23 anglers, teams of both 2 and 3 (to make 23 work), all seeded, with sections across 6 lakes over 3 days, hotels and peg fees to pay takes a bit of planning so please sort Keith out by 13th July and confirm attendance as we will struggle to replan after than and you will loose your deposit as we are paying Roy and the hotel upfront.

I'm there with H, Robbo, Col Cook and Ste B on 6th and 7th July so I'll do my usual update on how its fishing but based on a few trips already its business as usual with probably less fish on feeder lines and more than ever on pole lines with corn and pellet still doing the business.

I fished the TF 2 dayer with H and Robbo and we had 149lb, 142lb, 136lb, 111lb, 60lb, 40lb weights from average draws

13th June - Hampton - Long Island

The talk at the draw was had they spawned and with a few regular WBAC stars on holiday or at the races everyone had loads of space and the forecast heavy rain all day looked like it was going to miss us.

For most it ended up being a tough day with no-one being able to really find a line that would keep producing bar Jason Jones who caught small stockies on pellet on the long pole and  added a few edge fish to finish first out the frame with 33lb. Ian Simpson managed to keep rotating a few lines and worked out you could snare a better shallow fish then had to leave it and move before going back to get another shallow fish and these 6-8lb fish as well as a few stockies, F1's and tench from the margins and the deck saw him run out a winner with 50.5lb.

Kenny Stuart struggled on the long and short pole lines but managed to find some corn margin fish willing to feed in 2 and 3 fish bursts and ended with enough to take 2nd with 43.6lb. Billy Gore completed the frame with the late late show finding some willing margin fish having struggled in open water and on the feeder but 39.5lb was enough.


1st - Ian Simpson - 50.5lb
2nd - Kenny Stuart - 43.6
3rd - Billy Gore - 39.5lb

23/5 - Lloyds - Badger

By all accounts a tough day for most with 5 DNW's and an average of 15lb including a section won with a 1lb eel!!!!

That said the frame looks good and Barry and Pete in particular made great use of their end pegs and well what can I say about Bucketman.......Trev weights 55lb+ for a second week running and takes the win and moves upto 3rd in the Matchman of The Year race.

Nothing more I can say as I was with the wirral raiders with MFS at Rolfs to tackle the munters.......Robbo, Ste B, and Ian S weighed in nearly 320lb taking 1st and 5th in the process and H chipped in with over 40lb in the last hour!!


1st - Trevor Allpress - 56.5lb
2nd - Barry Davis - 44.7lb
3rd - Pete Canavan - 40.5lb

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.
