111lb 15oz at Blake Hall – Capricious yesterday makes Simon Griffin our latest member of the Staffs Match Fishing “100 Club”.

The Staffordshire Match Fishing – 100 Club “Not Just for Northerners”

Congratulations to Steve Hanson who has moved up from the smoke to “God’s Own Country” (The North) and wasted no time in securing his place in the Prestigious 100 Club Hall of fame.

Steve caught 104lb 5oz on Big Max at Old Hough Fishery last week; apologies for missing you out

Staffordshire Match Fishing club operates an inclusive policy and is in no way prejudiced against southerners.

An Honourable mention also goes to:-

Simon Griffin with his highest weight so far of 92lb 13oz yesterday on the Raymar Canal at Hanchurch Fishery

Two More do the Ton-Up

Congratulations to both Jamie Martin and Neil Wain who both caught over 100lb in a club match this weekend

Made more impressive by the fact that this week’s match on Big Max at Old Hough Fishery was only 5 hours rather than the usual 6 hours duration.

Jamie Martin Winner of the Match with a Weight of 176lb 3oz
Neil Wain Runner-Up in the Match with a Weight of 122lb 8oz

May 23rd Heronbrook

This Sunday we were booked to fish Pisces at Heronbrook (which has not been fishing well) Due to members work and personal commitments however we are not expecting a large turnout. With the lower numbers Neil Dale has been able to squeeze 10 of us onto a different water (shared with another match), which may fish a little better.

If you are attending it might be worth bringing a feeder/ waggler rod with you – just in case!

Times will be as usual

Book In 08:30

Draw 09:00

All In/ Out 10:30/16:30
