The start of the season at Blake Hall on the 1st May and it was Blustery Cold and Wet. Fast forward to the 8th and we were basking in Full Sun and 25° Heat at Izaak Walton Fisheries on the Canal Pool.
The carp were cruising around in groups ready for spawning, so for some it was a frustrating day.
Derek Taylor and Steve Randle: with 73lb & 49lb respectively; showed however that a good weight could still had.
It’s Carneys on the Damsel pool next week; a favorite with many anglers as good weights are always on the cards given favourable conditions.
We have had one or two enquiries from potential new members who may be joining us there as guests. I am sure they will be made to feel most welcome (general abuse and banter being reserved for more established members).
Hope to see you all bright and early next Sunday
Sunday 1st May 08:30 at Blake Hall’s Capricious Pool, is the opening draw of our 2016 Club
Match Season and with the weather starting to turn fairer we’re hoping for a good turn out.
The Capricious Pool is the first one you arrive at, on the right as you enter the Blake Hall Fishery complex.
The draw however is normally made at the lodge where a fresh brew or a cooked breakfast can be had to set you up for the day.
As with any of our matches if you have never fished with us before you can come along and be our guest. (Call Adam Harborow on 07802 703087 to reserve a peg)
You need only pay the peg fee (usually £10) for your first time with us; before deciding whether to join the club.
You could even get your club membership paid for you – by winning the match (Membership is currently £16 P.A ).
