OPEN MATCH RESULT HELD ON BRIDGE POOL 16th NOVEMBER 2017

19 anglers turned out today for the second open match of the three match series. An overnight frost and calm clear conditions made fishing very difficult for all anglers. With skimmers reluctant to feed the winning weight came from Paul Haines who managed to tempt several carp to the net for a winning weight of 38lb.05oz from peg 29.

Paul caught a few small skimmers on pole fished maggot then he changed to the pellet feeder fishing close to the island to tempt the carp.

OVER 55S AND DISABLED  MATCH RESULT HELD ON BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 9TH NOVEMBER 2017

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled match series has taken place on Bridge Pool. A bright calm and cold day greeted 21 anglers this week not ideal conditions. As predicted the fishing was very difficult. Coming out on top this week was Steve Dawson with a very respectable 18lb-07oz from peg 27. Steve started on pole fished pellet but soon realised that this method was not working. Steve changed to fishing the waggler with red maggot catching roach and the odd bonus skimmer. Towards the end of the match  Steve was broken by a carp so stepped up his tackle to tame a 9lb-15oz carp to win the match. Full result below.

OVER 55’S AND DISABLED SILVERS ONLY MATCH RESULT

OVER 55S AND DISABLED SILVERS ONLY MATCH RESULT HELD ON BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 28th SEPTEMBER 2017

 

 

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled match has taken place on Bridge Pool. A clear calm autumn day greeted 17 anglers this week with bright sunshine many thought that the fishing would be difficult. This was not the case as some superb weights were caught. Once again coming out on top was in form angler Steve Dawson. Steve drew peg 3 on the road side and weighed in a fantastic 32lb 04oz mixed bag of skimmers and some really impressive roach. Steve started out fishing pellet over ground bait laced with micro pellet at 10 metres. Half way through the match his bites dried up so he changed to caster over loose fed caster at 5 metres to consistently catch fish right to the end of the match. Full result below.
