I’m not a Glebe member although I did join one year and I never went... waste of money that was! 😂
I fish some (not all) of the annual charity matches in May and have fished the odd MFS match on there in the past.

Nah mate, someone’s having you on 😬
I fished the New Year’s Eve match a couple of weeks ago but that’s the first time I’ve fished it since May last year I think.

just hope it comes upto expectations
Nowhere is ever guaranteed Pete, you should know that. Never fished it myself but will enjoy it as It's a new venue to me.
Might even manage to take a couple of Nuggets home if all goes well. ;)

Is there room for one more Whisker,if so I will have it.
How do chaps and chappeses.
Following a bit of ping pong email tennis with @Scribe, I have booked Lake 1 at the Glebe on Saturday 23rd October 2021 which should be approximately 3 weeks after the 2021 Pork Pie match (details for which are coming soon).

There are 30 pegs on Lake 1 and given the time of year, I'll cap this match at 18 to give everyone fishing some extra room.

In true Maggotdrowners spirit, the match will be as fair as possible for all abilities and a staggering 50% of you lucky anglers will go home with some dosh.

The format will be:
  • 6 x teams of 3 anglers
  • 1 member of each team in each section
  • Each angler will draw a ball that says (for example) T4 S1, which means that angler will be fishing in Team 4 and fishing in Section 1
  • Once all teams have been selected, the anglers will then go on to draw their pegs
  • Each angler MUST weigh in as the winning teams will be decided on total TEAM weight
  • There will be nice envelopes containing said dosh for the Top 3 teams

Peg fees to be paid by 30th September (details nearer the date).
I will send reminders nearer the date but I will not chase you after 30th Sept.
Anyone not paid on by then will be removed from the list and a reserve added.


The cost for this fantastic event is an eye watering £20 all in, comprising of £10 peg fee and £10 pools.

This leaves us with £180 to pay out to the top 3 teams, as follows:
1st £90 (£30 each)
2nd £60 (£20 each)
3rd £30 (£10 each)

If someone wants to run an optional superpool, let me know and I'll point people in your direction on the day.

I need to see Roy about where we can do the draw, hopefully outside the marquee if there's no other matches and likely fishing 10.30am - 3.30pm.

I have 1 set of scales, weigh net and bar, @ulladubulla has kindly offered to bring a set. I'd like 1 more set so we have a set for each section if possible to speed up the weigh in.
Any help with weighing in equipment will be greatly appreciated but won't guarantee you an envelope! ;)

@Dave please add to MD Match calender, thank you.

And there you have it... match full. Welcome @160642fishing
Now taking names for reserve list.
Brilliant effort mate well done. (y)

Have just read the Match rules.

Rule 2 No Barbel of any size to be held in nets. Barbel do not count towards a match weight. That's me snookered then. :(

Not that I wouldn't want to keep a Barbel in a keepnet anyway, Barbel are my friends.. :D:D

Have had them at Jansons and pound for pound they fight like hell, especially on the pole. :D

Yes, I like Aubreys for the good mix of fish. Hard work to get a decent weight, I had 84lb and was cream crackered by the end of the match! Never been so glad to hear that bloomin’ whistle... 😆

There’s something about an MD match that makes it a pleasure to be an MO Pete 👍

Agree with that mate, despite the work that needs to go on behind the scenes, it's rather special to be involved with an MD match either as MO or participant.
