(shame they were only small roach) but at least now you've broken your duck Scott and the only way now is upwards.

The Raffle Raised 30 today.

Next match is on the 10th August (2 weeks) on Moors Pool at Moorlands Farm.
Draw is at 1pm in the Cafe.

Sorry this report is late but the nice people at NTL have been kicking me offline after less than 5 minutes since i got in yesterday and seeing as this has taken nearly 2 hours to do they aint helped much.

See you all in 2 weeks.

Well I was DETERMINED to catch on saturday and even though i look less than well impressed, my plan of half a joker worked!!! icon_smile.gif

Im not sure if Dave and Kev were impressed at my bleak bagging impression of Tommy Pickering or just lost for words!!! icon_smile.gif

As you guys say, its a start and Ive got a bit of catching up to do now, but now ive got my eye in lets catch somemore!!!icon_smile_big.gif

Churt, good match mate. Your suposed to be after the tubby golden brown uns not the slimy green uns.

Malc. Great match mate and Im looking forward to moorlands. I'll bring my squats again.... just in case icon_smile_tongue.gif

Thoroughly great day out again, creak 'crack' and im doing ok in the raffle (2 bottles of sherry in 2 trips) maybe i should just come for the raffel!!! icon_smile_approve.gif

See you guys in 2 weeks!!!!

Just a quick note to say i enjoyed the match, was worth the drive about 400 miles round trip :eek:). Yu could call me a virgin to this type of fishing and those who fished around me will vouch for that. Lost to many fish down to not having the correct hooks for job(Any advice appreciated).

Cheers

TO MD'S JIMBO

Nice to meet you at last and hopefully in the remaining 3 matches yourself Tim and Dave can put a few more fish in the net to make the long drive home a bit more enjoyable.

Regards hook choice personaly i only use 2 types for all Carp work and they are either Mustard Method Feeder or Kamasan Animal hooks.
But a lot of people rave about the Preston PR range.

Thanx Malc. I was using PR22's i would get them so far and then the hook would straighten. Never mind it was still a great learning curve, watchin my rod get pulled of the rest about every 20 minutes. I will be stocking up on those Method hooks, a couple of people have mentioned them now.

Cheers Jimmy

Jimmy,
If you like the Preston hooks,have a look at the PR29's as these are the strongest in the range.

Jimbo,

Personally I prefer the pr27 for fishing corn or meat but that is a personal choice.The animal hooks are good and if i am really bagging(not very often) then the method feeder hooks.Be warned though the method hooks are very big for there size.

Malc,

What a day,lovely weather,shame the fish did not materialise though.Keep up the good work Malc,Its still a pleasure to fish with you all even if there was a few strange faces on saturday.Was expecting to catch tench on the pole as there are hordes of them on this line but not a sniff.

Still just about holding a lead but with some cracking venues coming up it is still up for grabs if anyone makes a move.Will have to keep an eye on the chasing pack.

Nick.

Was that supposed to read member of dismember.

Steve

Disappointed you gave up red without a fight.

Keith.

You need good foundations for any structure, and the North Yorkshire contigent are holding you all up...

Great day again, shame a snotty bream spoilt my sun bathing, quite frustrating watching Kev, Churt and Steve all catching well hooking anyway...

Could'nt buy a bite, well thats fishing...

See you all at Moorlands...

PS Malc Tims on holiday for that one, dont worry he's lulling you all into a false sense of security, only to win it from the final two matches...

PPS The mileage to fish ratio is not looking to good...

Poles,

Welcome back hope you had a good one.

Stranger things have happened.

Keith,

Strangest face is normally mine.

Seriously though the guest's were asked so as to fill the pegs and save me losing to much more money on peg fee's and also to put a bit more money into the raffle.

quote: Was that supposed to read member of dismember.
RED wont like that Keith
-----------------------------------------------------

Teepee,

Whats a few mile's icon_smile.gif (ask Dave he's been travelling from York)

-----------------------------------------------------

Dave,

quote:You need good foundations for any structure, and the North Yorkshire contigent are holding you all up...
And a fine job your all making of it
quote: PPS The mileage to fish ratio is not looking to good...
Can only get better from now on as were away from the reservoires and the next one should be a good one (I HOPE)

Cheers to one and all for the support shown even if the fishing has not been the best the fun has more than made up for it.

Well i was damned if i was going to blank AGAIN!!!! But its my please not to have overtaken you in the league icon_smile.gif

As you say, 100lbs at Moorlands, Stockton and Holly farm should give Kev, Keith and Paul something to worry about icon_smile_wink.gif

Strange things often happen to me Malc but 114lbs and 14 dry nets??!! more like 15 silver eyes on a 16 B611 and 2 casters!! All those days on the T&M paid off!!

I must agree with eveything thats been said to congratulate and thank you for whats been a great summer series. Ok, the fishings been a little patchy but thats not your fault, the 'crak's ' been great, I made some great mates and met a load of top blokes.

Well done Malc!!! See you all at moorlands

Malc,

I did not want it to sound as if I was knocking but it may have come across that way.As far as i am concerned more the merrier.I know you booked 20 pegs for all the venues and if they are not filled it causes you great personal expense.That is the last thing we want.

You are doing a sterling job,organising,arranging,posting info and still trying to get a few photos(which means walking the banks when you should really be fishing).Keep up the good work and i will see you at Moorlands.PS Andy is back for that one so if the guests are still available please encourage them to come along.

Keith

Keith,

Don't worry mate i never took it as a knock,
(after running matches for years i grew a thick skin, it's just the legs i need to grow a bit now)
i just thought i'd better let every body know why there were a few strangers fishing, seeing as they claimed 3 of the top 4 places on the day.


At the moment as far as i know we should have 5 maybe 6 guest's for Moorlands which should mean there will be 17 or 18 of us.

And hopefully we can all get a good days fishing in and catch you up at the top, and even
you off


And as a special note for
Churt
Moorlands have a lience and sale beer in the club house so you've no worry about missing your pint after the next match

Just to say that the laugh that i have had in the matches has more than made up for the patchy fishing but one thing has puzzled me is how scott got that squatt on a size 10 method feeder hook and then gat a pair of eye balls to to swallow the afore mentioned big hook it impressed the hell out of me LOL
