2019 Championship: Round 1

Points Match 1, The Cam, Baits Bite, 16th June 2019 A gusty downstream wind made presentation in the middle ½ of the match length very difficult for most of the match, with many resorting to ledgering when a pole became impossible to control. It was frustrating [...]

Sweepstake 2 Block Fen Mepal 2nd June 2019

Sweepstake 2 Block Fen Mepal 2nd June 2019 Only 7 eventually fished this match, others had mostly good excuses, but it was a lovely warm day with baby grebes and emerging dragon flies to entertain. With carp counting in full and with minimal obvious activity from [...]

2018 Championship: Round 14

Match 14, Reach Lode, Upware 10th March 2019 I’ve only just thawed out from fishing in what were the worst conditions I’ve experienced for several years. The strong and gusty wind snapped my umbrella stem early in the match, after which I got progressively wetter and [...]

Sweepstake, Reach Lode, Upware, 24th February 2019

Sweepstake, Reach Lode, Upware, 24th February 2019 Due to holidays and other commitments only ten of us were able to attend the match but at least this meant no one had to move too far downstream towards Wicken Fen; as usual for this time of year [...]

Sweepstake, The Cam, The Boats at Horningsea, 20th January 2019

Sweepstake, The Cam, The Boats at Horningsea, 20th January 2019 While it turned out to be a bright sunny day, the overnight temperature drop to -6.5°C and watery hanging mist had certainly dampened everyone’s expectations for a ‘good’ day’s sport. We knew it would be hard [...]

2018 Championship: Round 13

Match 13, The Lark, Prickwillow 6th January 2019 With no one really wanting to fish upstream of the moorings Trevor managed to fit all 10 of us into the usual swims down to the bridge. This did mean we were close, in my case within a [...]

2018 Championship: Round 12

Match 12, The Cam, Clayhithe, 9th December 2018 Those who could make it were blessed with a bright, sunny day, albeit a bit breezy although this did not affect presentation too much because it was generally an upstream wind. Eight people fished and to minimise swim [...]

2018 Championship: Round 11

Points Match 11, The Lark, Prickwillow 28th October 2018 This was very much a divided match, those lucky enough to draw one of the old familiar pegs below the boat moorings and those unfortunates in the ‘new’ swims above the moorings. It was therefore similar to [...]
