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:-

It is a few years since we last held a club match on this venue, so a few members recently had a day fishing here to check it out. Happily, we can report that the small stockies we were catching back then have all increased in size to good weight builders and the F1s were responded well to expander pellet on the hook and feeding micros. It looks positive then for our match on on April 4th when I look forward to seeing you all there.
