Broome "AGM Knock-up"

As has become a bit of a tradition there was a "knock-up" on Colver after the completion of this years AGM. There were ten starters and it was Steve Roberts who came out on top with 46lb 7oz from peg 27. It was quite close between first and second as Geoff Harper, on peg 21, took the runner-up spot just 4lb or so behind Steve with 42lb 7oz.

Keith Macfarlane took Section 1 with 23lb 12oz from peg 3. With Section 2 going to Den Porter on peg 13 with 15lb 1oz.


Broome Committee Changes

Thanks to all those that turned up to the AGM this year. There are some committee changes to make you aware of.

Paul Edwards has taken over from Paul Cooke as Assistant Match Secretary with immediate effect due to Paul Cooke's other commitments. Thanks to Cookie for his help at the Matches over the past few years.

Ian Watson has had to give up the position of Minute Secretary due to work commitments, again we thank Ian for his valuable help taking the minutes at the meetings.

This means, of course, that we are now looking for Ian's replacement!

The Minute Secretary's job involves taking the minutes at the twelve, monthly, committee meetings (the first Tuesday of each month at Birstall Social Club), at the November Half Yearly Meeting and the April AGM. And then presenting them for reading at the next meeting.

If you would like do this important job and join the committee you will be able to have your say in the day to day running of the club.

If you are interested and would like any further information regarding this position then please contact Alan Smith otherwise, you will find Alan's telephone number in your Membership Book.


Away day at Peatling Lake B

Last Sundays Away Day took eleven members to Peatling Fisheries once again and It was Lake B that provided some great sport in the warmer weather. It was a pretty close competition with Gavin Norton coming out on top for the second week in succession. Gavin weighed in with 113lb 8oz from lucky peg 13. Den Porter was not to far behind on peg 20 with 106lb 8oz.

Section 1 was another ton weight, Keith Macfarlane netting 104lb 13oz from peg 6. Paul Cooke taking Section 2 from peg 16 with 89lb 3oz.


Fly Tipping at Kilworth Sticks

 We are having to report that there has been an incidence of "Fly Tipping" at Kilworth Sticks. Rubbish has been left on the carpark at the rear of Currans Loop. As you can imagine the land owner is not at all happy.

It is highly likely that this has been done by a Broome Member as whoever has done this must have come through our gate.

We do not want to loose the lease at this fishery because of one persons selfish stupidity.

If you saw this happening or if you know who the culprit is please inform one of the committee, all phone numbers are in your membership book.

If you visit the  fishery please help us by keeping an eye out for any suspicious behaviour.

As there are numerous CCTV camera's at this venue we are hopeful that we will be able to identify the culprit.


Away Day at Peatling "Lake A"

 There were twelve members at the latest "Away Day" match, fished at Peatling Fisheries "Lake A" or Boat Lake as it is also known. It was a chilly still day and the lake was surprisingly clear after reports of 100lb+ catches from a midweek match. For such a normally prolific water it was, apart from the top two, very tough going.

After a slowish start Mark Akiens on peg 32 started catching some of the F1's that were seen swimming about in his peg before the start!!. It wasn't long before the odd Carp also decided to join in the fun and with a weight of 88lb 6oz to take to the scales, Mark was well in front of the field.

Paul Edwards was also catching well, fishing toward the sunken island on next peg 35. Paul was getting mostly F1's and the odd Skimmer but they came pretty quickly.  But for five decent Carp hooked and lost in the margins toward the end of the match Paul could well have challenged Mark for top spot. 53lb 4oz, though was easily enough for second place.

Completing the trio on the 30's bank, Kev Hirons took Section 1 with 31lb 5oz from peg 37. Section 2 going to Den Porter with 24lb from peg 10.
