Cost Cutter Match 31/10/19

Club Chairman Alan Smith has organised a series of Cost Cutter matches for the 60's and over. These matches are held on a Thursday and if you would like more details contact Alan and he will be able to help you (Alan's number is in your membership book). Read below Alan's report of the third match in the series.

The third cost cutter match in the series on 31st October was held in near impossible conditions on Jurassic Lake. The lake was still flooded and chocolate brown with all pegs around the lake under water. To top it all we also had a frost when we arrived. Rather than call it off we decided to fish the bank with our backs to the field as at least we could sit on the path and fish over the pegs. 

Needless to say the fishing was dire and Chris Shaw needed only 13oz to win. 

As Age Concerns AGM is being held next Thursday (7/11/19) we will not be holding a match on that day but will resume the week after (14/11/19) on Jasons Lake. 

 

 


Kilworth Toilets Closed

Just to let everyone know, the toilet at Kilworth Fishery has now been closed for the winter. This is to prevent the risk of frost damage over the cold months. It is usually reopened in the spring.


Cost Cutter Match 24/10/19

Club Chairman Alan Smith has organised a series of Cost Cutter matches for the 60's and over. These matches are held on a Thursday and if you would like more details contact Alan and he will be able to help you (Alan's number is in your membership book). Read below Alan's report of the second match in the series.

The second of the new cost cutter matches was held today on a miserable, rain sodden, B J’s lake. The downpour never stopped all day and to make matters worse the only fish feeding were small perch and the very odd roach. Yours truly won the day with around 40 perch and half a dozen roach for 3lb 6oz. 

 

Let’s hope for better weather next Thursday, when we tackle Jurassic. Good catches of roach and skimmers have been coming out recently so let’s hope they feed next week. 

 

 


 

Cost Cutter Match 17/9/19

The first of the new Thursday over 60’s cost cutter matches was held on 17th October at Frisby. As all the lakes were flooded except Colver and Smiggies we needed to switch the match from BJ’s to Smiggies. The prospects were made even worse as we experienced the first real frost of the winter. The lake fished hard to say the least but Mick Farmery managed to find several bream for a winning weight of 15lb 1oz.

  

Next Thursdays match will be held on BJ’s if the water levels are back to something like normal.

 


Rod Found

We have some good news. Barry Page reported an unfortunate incident when he lost his rod and reel whilst fishing on BJ's lake recently.

Lost Rod

One of our "long time" members Dimitar Dimitrov was fishing on BJ's and after hooking into a "bite" he was very surprised when he landed the aforementioned rod and reel!! .

Barry is delighted to be re-united with the tackle, that he thought he had seen the last of!! . Many thanks to Dimitar .


Net Drying

You may have noticed that on the front page of the Website we issue a notice asking members to ensure that their keepnets, landing nets, carp sacks, unhooking mats etc. Are thoroughly dry before you start fishing.

We do not request this to be awkward or sticklers for rules and regulations. We are trying to prevent the carrying of disease or transfer of invasive species from one water to another.

This includes moving between lakes on our own waters.

There have been local outbreaks of the carp disease KHV.

So please lay out your nets for at least 30minutes before starting to fish at any water you may be fishing. And, if possible, dry your nets in the sun when you get home.


Lost Feeder Rod

Barry Page had an unfortunate incident whilst fishing on BJ's about a week ago. Barry was fishing the feeder on the Smiggies side of the lake and whilst getting off his box to answer the call of nature his rod flew off into the lake....Fishing rod that is!!!. Before he could get to it the rod reel and fish had disappeared.

So if you do come across this rod and reel Barry would be most grateful for it's return. If you do find it  please return it to Barry or contact me on webmaster@broomeanglingsociety.co.uk  and I will put you in touch with Barry.

 


Lily Pad Removal (Updated)

The work to remove the lily pads on Colver will take place on Tuesday 30th July. There will be large machinery involved in this operation, Therefore pegs 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, and 23 plus the two disabled pegs (19 and 20) will be closed to all until the work has been completed. Also the access at that end of Colver will also be closed until the work has been completed and the machinery removed from site.

I have had a message from Terry Branston that Smiggies Lake will also be closed on 30th July as the contractors are going to remove the lily pad roots from there as well.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Matrix Pairs

The Matrix pairs Match, sponsored by Paul Edwards, to be fished on Sunday 28th July has been switched to Holly Farm, Gills Lake. If you would like to fish this match please contact either Keith or Paul.
