This weeks match is on the spring Pool at The Willows Fishery. For new members that have not fished it before the venue impose a few restrictions  See Rules Below). Having said that, the carp tend to be in the 5lb plus bracket and on a good day the winning weight can be well over the 100lb mark. (Club Record from this venue 265lb 6oz)

The first time it can be a little difficult to find so here are some directions:

Postcode for the Sat Nav is ST19 5QJ (Bickford, Penkridge,)

  1. As you come into Penkridge on the A449 from Stafford you will see a black & white Tudor style pub (The White Hart) on the left – turn right into Pinfold lane.
  2. Go under the railway bridge, round over the river bridge and keep following the winding road for maybe a couple of miles up to the swan pub (on your right)
  3. Just past the swan pub turn left, follow winding lane carefully for about half to two thirds of a mile
  4. The fishery is on your right. The entrance is a simple farm gate immediately after Bank House farm Kennels

I dropped in at the venue on Thursday (a warm sunny day) and saw countless carp basking and cruising on top.

Chatting with the bailiff he told me 112lb won Wednesdays match – mainly F1s with carp taken in the margins later on mostly caught on meat. Other methods he recommended were pellet shallow and also paste,  particularly on the deeper – siltier side of the lake, if it starts to fizz.

Hope to see you all there on Sunday

Venue Changes 6th August & 1st October

Two changes to the match calendar have been made for 6th August & 1st October this year. The new venue for both dates will be  OTHERTON FISHERY.

Our match secretary Alan Duke has been to check it out and spent a day fishing  there. Returning with a positive report, we believe this venue will be an improvement on the original venue booked; where catches have not been good for some time.
