Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes 25th April 2017

25th April, 2017 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

James Rogers reports plenty of action at Worthington Lakes despite the level being dropped for inspection works. Using a maggot feeder and double red on the hook he caught fourteen bream to 3.5lbs along with some quality roach. Regular carp catches although no records are being broken.

Mike Pritchard who dramatically had his previous week's session cut short on Statham Pool when his wife locked herself out of the house more than made up for it this week. He fished his usual small waggler tactics using maggot and finally caster which brought on better stamp roach to the 10oz mark plus a bonus carp of around 8lbs that gave him a few nail biting moments on his 18's hook to 1.5 hook length. He had about fifty fish and reports a lot of small pike activity so probably worth a visit.

On the 1st May the committee are introducing some changes in an effort to improve peg accessibility for members during the summer months on Sandiway lakes. It means simply that those ending their night session must leave the water by 12noon on their last day and those coming on for the night must not access the fishery before 2pm. The idea is that this gives everyone a chance of a peg and prevents pegs being handed on to mates.

Our Disabled & Over 60's match fished on the Bridgewater Canal at Daresbury on Monday was a close run thing with barely half a pound between the first four places. John Dagnall led the field with 3-10-8 taken on pole and alternating between bread and pinkie. Lenny (End Peg) Dutton was less than an ounce behind in the runner up spot with 3-10-4. Catches were mainly roach and small skimmers with the exception of Stan Charnock who weighed an eel of 1.5lbs. Please note there is no match next week due to the bank holiday.

Please note there is a working party at Grey Mist Mere this weekend and it is closed from 10am Saturday morning and only those who attend the working party can fish Saturday night.

There is also one on Sunday morning at The Mount starting at 9am. There is a regular group of volunteers so if you fancy joining them please ask for Derek Cowell or Brian Jones on site.

WAA Headquarters at 52, Parker Street are open as usual every Friday between 7 & 9pm for new members, subscriptions, night permit renewals, and any queries. Please email catch details to frank@warrington-anglers.org.uk or give me a ring on 01928 716238.

18th April 2017 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

18th April, 2017 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes

Andrew Beddeson had Wide Hole all to himself on Good Friday where he spent an enjoyable four hours or so hours catching plenty of roach and perch plus three bream around 2.5 to 3lbs as a bonus. All were caught fishing caster over pellet. Although very happy with the sport on this Association owned fishery he was less pleased about the rubbish left by non-members. We are looking for volunteers to help out on this fishery so if any members fancy getting involved please drop me an email.

Regular contributor Eric J Smith took the week before Easter off work and managed to fit in three sessions on Cicely Mill Pool and three on Grey Mist Mere. Apart from one day on the Mist sport was on the slow side. Eric reckons that his favourite water Cicely still hasn't come to life yet but nevertheless he caught three hybrids on his first session, four tench all about 3lbs on the second, and three crucians the next day. On his first visit to Grey Mist Eric sat for nine hours without a bite then had six tench in six casts. The best three weighed 7-8-0, 7-10-0, and 8-1-0, all three beat his previous P.B. which had stood for years at 7-6-0. The next day produced one tench, again over seven pounds at 7-11-0 and Thursday was a blank.

Eric fished a maggot feeder with red maggots on the mist and his usual method feeder with hemp sprayed over the top on Cicely. To sum up his week I would think four tincas each beating his previous longstanding PB was a result.

It really is encouraging to see that more adult members are now taking youngsters for free taster sessions on the four designated fisheries which are Woodshaw Reservoir, Ackers pit, Bridgewater Canal, and Offa's Dyke Fisheries. Any adult member can take any youngster aged 12 years and under on a one to one basis on these fisheries for free.

Please note there is a working party at Sandiway Lakes this weekend and Big Sandiway only is closed from Saturday at 10am until about 4pm on Sunday. Only volunteers who put themselves down for the working party can fish on Saturday night.

WAA Headquarters at 52, Parker Street are open as usual every Friday between 7 & 9pm for new members, subscriptions, night permit renewals, and any queries. Please email catch details to frank@warrington-anglers.org.uk or give me a ring on 01928 716238.
