BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 3RD AUGUST 2017

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled match series has taken place on Bridge Pool. A windy but dry day greeted the 20 anglers that took part this week which would make presentation difficult for anglers using the pole. Weights were a little bit down on the previous match this could be due to heavy cold rain the day before the match. Although fishing was a little slower there were still lots of fish caught and coming out on top this week was Alan Jones with a weight of 21lb 06oz from peg 16. Alan caught on worm over ground bait laced with chopped worm and casters at around 9 metres.

OVER 55’s AND DISABLED SILVERS ONLY MATCH RESULT HELD

ON BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 25th MAY 2017

The latest round of the over 55s and disabled match series has been held on Bridge Pool. An absolutely beautiful day greeted all competitors which could have made for a very difficult match. Steve Dawson who won the last match was the winner again and unbelievably he drew the same peg and won with the exact same weight. (what are the odds of that). Steve drew peg 29 and had a very slow start fishing soft pellet on the deck with little success. After a couple of hours Steve started loose feeding maggots at 13 metres and started to catch small roach and perch up in the water and gradually the bigger skimmers started to feed and Steve caught steadily for the rest of the match finishing with a weight of 32lb.00oz.

Steve caught skimmers to 1.5lb in the first half of the match on 6mm expander pellet over pre soaked 2mm pellet.

ROUND SIX OF THE BATHAMPTON AA  SILVER SERIES

HELD ON BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 16TH MARCH 2017

Well at last decent conditions for the final match with everything to play for between the top 5.

The match itself was won by Steve Dawson with 26lb 8oz off peg 15. Steve started the match catching roach and chub on caster but bites tailed off after a couple of hours. Steve then changed tacticts and fed a pot of maggots which produced quality skimmers on and off for the the remainder of the match although it did slow down in the last hour.

2nd –  Dave Wilmott with 24lb 6oz peg29

3rd – Dave Wride with 23lb 13oz peg 6

joint 4th and 5th 23lb 12oz was Tony Rixon and John Fuidge off pegs 8 and 28 respectively.

The series winner was Callum Dicks with 9 points, joint second with 10 points each was Mike Nicholls and Steve Dawson but Mike takes second place on weight (76lb 12oz to 73lb 13oz),  so Steve finished 3rd, Tony Rixon 4th with 11 points and Dave Wride 5th with 12 points. Really close and the final result wasn’t decided until the last match.
