Points Match 5, Reach Lode, Upware 5th August 2018 This time thanks went to Ken Whitmore for his heroic raking efforts during the preceding week, using his ‘saw blades on a pole’ device, to clear most of the streamer and blanket weed from all of the [...]

Points Match 4, OLD WEST, Stretham, 22nd July 2018 With Ian on his holidays I have the dubious pleasure of reporting on our recent match. Conditions looked good with some good cloud cover unfortunately the river was backing up rather than flowing which I think impacted [...]

2017 Championship: Round 14

Match 14, Reach Lode, Upware 11th March 2018 This was certainly not our best match on this venue, with only the very early pegs finding anything bigger than a ½ ounce roach. A surprising flow and biting wind resulted in no bites at all for many [...]
