The match scheduled for 19th March has been postponed until 16th April because there is a canoe event on the same day. If you want to take part please check in with the match secretary, details are on your permit.
During the last few days two exciting stocking events have taken place at Rawlings Retreat. Following the removal of large carp to Bellwood, 340 small carp from 1lb to 3lb were introduced, the intention being to restore the match and pleasure fishing to previous levels. During the netting bream to 10lb were discovered in Willows along with some large crucians.
Today 76 bream around 2lb each were added to Alders, to increase pleasure weights, these fish are expected to be safe from cormorant predation.
Rawlings in now going to be very different to fish, Alders developing nicely as a silver fishery, Warwicks with a population of growing crucians, and Willows should become a better match fishery.
The annual Help for Heroes match on Enborne Canal on 24th September and a grand event it was as usual. 30 Anglers from local clubs and members from as far as Stratford upon Avon and Shipston on Stour turned up at the Lamb Inn on Enborne Road for Bacon Rolls and the draw. The match was fished on Enborne Canal and everyone caught fish and the result was spectacular. 3rd on the day was Mervyn Burrows with 6-14-0, 2nd was Chris Coleman from Shipston with 9-2-0 and the winner was Dave Smith with 22-12-0 made up of Perch to 2.5lb a 3lb Tench and Roach to 14oz. Dave and Mervyn clearly benefitting from the over 60's match on the same water 3 days earlier. Back at the Lamb Inn a full hot Dinner was laid on and then the anglers set about the main event of the day which was to raise money for H4H. A large Raffle was organised which had been well supported by Tony at Thatcham Angling and Kevin at Tadley Angling as well as donations from club members. A grand total of £701 was raised and a cheque for that amount will soon be on its way to the H4H offices. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
