Match/Meeting report 5 22nd March 2016

It was really good to see 8 members turn out to fish round 5 at Three Oaks on Tuesday 22nd March. Conditions were good; warm and bright with little wind and, after a couple of dry weeks, all round the lake it was a mud free zone unlike the last outing there which resembled the Somme ! Almost everyone caught and there was plenty of activity with lots of silver fish. Graham was first to land a carp in a match this year with a nice 2 lbs 8 ozs common. Colin also had a 1 lb 12 ozs common during the afternoon. It took until 5th May last year before anyone landed a carp in a match/meeting. There were some decent silvers coming to the net as well with Denis B and Colin both having skimmers of over half a pound and Derek also had a fine 12 oz roach. There was the usual “what might have been” as a decent carp took most of Derek’s pole elastic out before shaking the hook in a snag. Overall, I think everyone had a good day out and it was good to see Fred and Richard come along for their first coarse outings this year. Credit goes to Roy for his measures to alleviate the recent mud issues and improve access to the swims. Results on the day 1st Fred Monck 4 lbs 14 ozs and 12 pts 2nd Derek Wood 3 lbs 1 oz and 7 pts 3rd Colin O’Mara 2 lbs 14 ozs and 4 pts Associate Members Graham Titheridge 3 lbs 12 ozs and 12 pts Denis Bloodworth 0 lbs 9 ozs and 7 pts Full Member League Standings: Derek 21 pts, Aaron 14 pts and Colin 13 pts Assoc Member League Standings; Denis B 35 pts, Graham T 21 pts and Denny 6 pts NEXT MATCH/MEETING is at HAMBROOK on Tuesday 12th APRIL Don’t forget the AGM at the clubhouse on THURSDAY 7th APRIL Cheers and Tight Lines Derek Wood Match Organiser

Match at Hambrook 8th March

Horizon Match Meeting report   Hambrook 8th March Members awoke to a second consecutive sharp frost before they set off to Hambrook for Round 4 of this year’s match meetings. 5 anglers, Dave, Denis, Aaron, Colin and Derek all took up swims at the top end of the lake. Conditions were very soggy underfoot and both Dave and Aaron in their wheeled vehicles found it difficult to get across the relatively short section of grass to the lake itself. However with a little help here and there everyone was in position to start fishing. Feeder tactics seemed the order of the day initially with a variety of hook baits. Sadly the carp were not in a feeding mood and bites were hard to come by, maybe down to the drop in temperature. Derek alternated between method feeder and a pole approach which resulted in regular bites and eleven perch to worm and maggots on the pole. These were the only fish of the day. Denis, reported a few knocks on his feeder rod later on and Colin’s float went off and under but unfortunately didn’t manage to hook the fish. Denny came along to see how everyone was doing in the afternoon. Colin lost his footing and very nearly became the first to go in the water this year. The under foot conditions made life tricky at Hambrook especially when trying to get Dave and Aaron back to the car park and thanks to those who assisted with that. Hopefully the ground will be better when we next go to Hambrook on 12th April. Aaron and Derek top the Full Members League with 14 points each with Colin 3rd on 9 pts. Denis B is still way out in front in the Associate Members League with 28 pts with Graham T on 9 pts. The next Match Meeting 5 is at Three Oaks on Tuesday March 22nd I look forward to a good turnout for that one Cheers and Tight Lines Derek Wood Match Organiser, Horizon Angling Club for the Disabled
