Additional update following today’s members match. This is hot off the press from Roy Marlow & it’s feedback following today’s members match about Dippy Ward who Roy defends every week but as you can see from the email received just now, Roy is no longer able to defend his good mate :- “I don’t normally criticise Dippy Ward but today I will have to make an exception. My mate Dippy drew what is the most consistent peg on Pool 8. I went to advise him twice but my words were lost. As you know I never slag him over his pathetic performances but today I have to tell how bad his angling ability was. I told him it was the winning peg before the draw because it has been the best peg on the lake for several weeks and yesterday one of our older members (not quite as old as Dippy he was 72 ) fished it and caught 22 carp. The book of excuses came out half way through the match and catching the dividing rope and dragging it in with his “light” hook length certainly didn’t help. Then there..
Good Evening Everyone, Today we had 24 members attend the lat st members match that was fished in very blustery conditions. Helping Mr Ward today was the in form Barry “The Bomber” Cocks. So thanks Barry for helping Mr Ward today. Russ Gunbie (pictured) was today’s match winner from peg 67 on lake 4 catching on both bomb & bread and the long pole on pellet. With a superb 114lb 12oz. Not far behind was Rich Wells from peg 85 on lake 5 catching most of his fish down his right margin to weigh 112lb 6oz. With a Baz The Bomber Cocks Third today with 107lb 14oz from peg 86 on lake 6. In fact looking at the weigh sheets (attached) the lakes that had been exposed to the wind fish really well considering we are nearly half way through January already. Mr Ward looks forward to seeing as many members who wish to join us a week today, Sunday 20th January.
Official Match Report for todays event. There were 25 anglers today in Mr Dippy Wards fishing event. Thanks to Roy who was appointed adult supervisor to Mr Ward the draw went smoothly. The problem was the anglers because some didn’t listen to Mr Wards announcements of what lakes would be used and the different numbers for pool 8. To make matters worse Mr Ward was also in a state of confusion because he didn’t even know what lake he was on after he had drawn his peg even though he has been fishing at the Glebe since 1996. I understand that daughter Julia gives him written and verbal instructions on how to find his way to the Glebe because without it he would probably go to another venue if he was lucky. Back to the fishing, it was always going to be very hard with very clear cold water on all of the lakes and again no wind to stir them up for the last several days. This meant that a good draw was essential, that was if a good angler was on the peg. In todays case it was sometimes difficult..
