2020 Championship: Round 7

Points Match 7 Reach Lode, Upware 13th September 2020 Without considerable effort from Ken, Glen, Mike, Simon and Trevor, who diligently raked all swims during the week prior to our visit, it would have been impossible to fish. For anyone who hasn’t visited Reach Lode for [...]

Points Match 6, The Cam, Horningsea Boats, 30th August 2020 Apart from an obvious abundance of streamer weed, conditions seemed near perfect with some colour in the water and a medium flow. John had put in some midweek practice and reported that good roach, skimmer and [...]

2020 Championship: Round 5

Points Match 5, Mepal, 16th August 2020 Our previous match here on 7th June had been a disappointment for many, with 6 DNWs and only The Mepal Marvel recording double figures. This had persuaded several of this week’s challengers to try the Marvel’s double worm feeder [...]

2020 Championship: Round 2

Points Match 2, The Old West, 5th July 2020 Trevor had to check his watch as Paul managed to turn up a whole 5minutes before the draw. This obviously unsettled Trevor as he announced that we were going to fish a five hour match from 9am [...]

2020 Championship: Round 1

Points Match 1, The Cam, Baits Bite, 21st June 2020 Waiting for the draw we watched streams of bubbles rising from the depths for as far as the eye could see, was a large shoal of bream/skimmers patrolling? Thoughts went to last year’s new boy Russ [...]

Sweepstake Match 3, Reach Lode. Upware, 15th December 2019

Sweepstake Match 3, Reach Lode. Upware, 15th December 2019 We were down on numbers for this match but those missing it also missed a good day’s fishing! Despite near freezing overnight temperatures for the past week and a blustery wind across the left shoulder, i.e. not [...]
