OVER 55S AND DISABLED  MATCH RESULT HELD ON BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 20th DECEMBER 2018

The last match in the 2018 series has taken place on Bridge Pool. 19 anglers turned out this week for the final match of the series the weather was damp and a little breezy but improved as the match went along. There were no big weights this week which was expected due to the time of year but anglers were catching quality skimmers in the 1-1/12 lb bracket also some decent size perch were caught. First on the day was Paul Haines with 31lb-12oz from peg 27. Paul caught carp and f1s alternating between the long pole and feeder. Full result below.

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled match series has taken place on Bridge Pool.  A cold frosty start greeted 17 anglers this week with the temperature close to freezing and the water clear all thought bites would be difficult to come by. That would turn out to be the case for all anglers except one, Tony Rixon fishing peg 11 absolutely blew the rest of the field away with a fantastic weight of 122lb-7oz to win the match with ease. Tony caught most of his fish just off the island using bread and triple maggot. Although the last hour went quiet for Tony the damage had already been done. Full result below

OVER 55S AND DISABLED  MATCH RESULT HELD ON BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 13th SEPTEMBER

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled series has taken place on Bridge Pool. A beautiful autumnal day greeted 21 anglers this week but a drop in the temperature was going to slow things down. Winner this week was Mike Nicholls from peg 29 with a very respectable weight of 98lb-8oz. Mike started the match fishing for the silvers but at the halfway point had only around 7-8lb in his keep net. The second half of the match Mike changed tactics and decided to fish for the carp which proved to be the correct decision weighing in more than double than the second placed angler. Full result below.

JUNE 2018

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled series has taken place on Bridge Pool. A fine day was forecast for the 24 anglers who turned out this week. Due to the fine bright conditions the silver fish were difficult to catch so carp were the target for most of the anglers. Coming out on top this week was Tony Rixon with a fantastic weight of 94lb-00oz from peg 30. Tony caught carp to double figures using the pole at 17.5 metres using pellet on the hook towards the island. Full result below.

APRIL 2018

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled match series has been held on Bridge Pool. A dry clear day greeted the 20 anglers that turned out this week and with the weather starting to improve expectations were high. Coming out on top this week was Tony Rixon with a fantastic weight of 80lb-01oz from peg 28. Tony started on the pole at 13 metres catching skimmers on maggot and worm over ground bait and the odd f1. Half way through the match Tony started fishing banded 6mm pellet feeding 4mm pellets at 17 metres towards the island to land plenty of f1s to win the match.
