to all our members
Well once a
gain its been a year of mixed results for
members fishing the club waters.
the clubs main
match water has produced some mixed bags of
roach, Rudd, perch & Ide, with the odd tench,
summer matches being won with weights of 7-8lb,
this year added to of the normal stocking Horton
also received a stock of 300lb roach from
Fontburn, most fish averaging 10oz but with
quite a few well over the pound. So well worth a
try winter or summer.
This is the
oldest of our ponds and is well stocked with
bream carp tench Rudd, ide and roach, but can be
a bit finicky at times, but with the right
approach a good days fishing can be had all year
This pond had
a lot of work done to it to make it deeper and
improve the platforms. The pond is a bit of an
unknown quantity at the moment as its only been
stocked recently and not a lot of anglers fishing
it, despite there being a good head of roach
Rudd tench bream and small carp.
The QE2 has
had one of its best years ever, not only for
carp but pike, bream and roach.
found himself with lots of time on his hands and
was able to put together a great carp campaign.
Almost every method worked for him, solid bags
and single hook baits being top of the list. The
key was to find the area that the fish were in.
He had fish to 23lb 12oz but other anglers have
caught 24lb and 25lb fish. It was not unusual
for Chris to catch 10 plus fish in one session.
that that were stocked many years ago still make
the odd appearance. Each year they have put on
even more weight, with some now over the magical
10lb barrier and reports of one now being over
fourteen pounds in weight.
The club had
a successful QE2 Trophy Match where over 5 lb
was needed to get in the top 3. These sorts of
bags of Roach and Rudd were common for pleasure
Alan Reed showed the way during October with two
pike over the magical 20lb barrier, but there
were reports of a 25 lb pike being caught in
the first carp stocking from VS Fisheries. This
fish strain having been bred by SKY Sports
Thinking Tackle contributor and Fish Scientist
Simon Scott. A further order has been placed for
2015 but will be the bigger year group C5
(14-16lb). It is hoped that this fast growing
strain will push through and become some of the
biggest fish in the North East.
But the club
is not just about the fishing, these waters need
to to maintained, so If you can spend a few
hours to attend a work party and do what ever
you can. it would be greatly appreciated.
all our members all the best for the new year.
