To All Members
The five members who attended Round 25 at Smith’s Pond on Wednesday were greeted by an unwelcome surprise as Bailiff Ted advised us that a layer of green scummy algae pretty well covering the entire pond had appeared in the last 24 hours. It was certainly not pleasing on the eye, but we had all made the journey up the busy M27 and were determined to get some fishing in, although at times it was a bit like trying to fish through a hole in an ice flow!
Undaunted, we fished on in testing conditions but I am glad to report that everyone caught although it was mostly small silvers, with a few small bonus tench and a few lovely little scrappy crucians. John had the best fish of the day a good tench at 1 lb and Derek lost a decent fish, probably a tench which took off to the right, towards Graham’s swim and taking lots of elastic before everything flew back as the fish shed the small hook.
This was the last of our six scheduled visits to Smith’s Pond that Eastleigh Angling Club have allowed us again this year and I hope we can continue this arrangement in 2017 as , despite the sometimes arduous trip to get there, we have had some good fishing at this pleasant, tucked away water. So a big Thank You to the Eastleigh Club for continuing to support our Horizon Club.Smith’s Pond Results Full Members: 1st Derek with 3 lbs 6ozs (12 pts), 2nd John with 2 lbs 2 ozs (7 pts), 3rd Tony with 2 lbs 0 ozs (4 pts) Associates: 1st Paul with 3 lbs 0 ozs and 12 pts, 2nd Graham with 2 lbs 14 ozs and 7 pts LEAGUE STANDINGS: With 3 match/meetings remaining, Derek (99 points) opens up a bit of a gap on Colin (82 points) and Dave in third spot on 57 points. In the Associates section Graham (140 points) has closed the gap on leader Denis (147 points) with Paul on 97 points in third place. With a maximum of 36 points available over the next 3 events it looks like top honours will go to Colin or Derek and Denis or Graham but it is still too close to call at this stage. In the Total Weight tables Colin (65 lbs leads from Derek (43 lbs) with Tony now in 3rd spot (26 lbs). In the Associates section Paul (75 lbs) leads from Graham (60 lbs) and Denis (57 lbs).
We move on to THREE OAKS on WEDNESDAY 5th OCTOBER for the NEXT MATCH/MEETING (Round 26)
Hope to see you all there
Good Luck and Tight Lines
Match Organiser Horizon Angling Club for the DisabledFunny story......Does this remind you of anyone we know? An rural doctor who really enjoys his fishing and is famed for his catches of big fish was out fishing again when he got a call from a farmer in the next village saying that his wife was about to give birth. The doctor packed away his fishing gear and said he’d be straight over. After a short while the doctor successfully delivered the baby. As the farmer had no scales to weigh the new arrival so the doctor said “Don’t worry, I can use my fishing scales” after which he proudly declared “It’s a boy and 21 lbs 14 ozs!” Sounds like Colin’s scales!.....no offence Colin ================================================================================================
