Well another season came to a close and what a nice way to end it.  The match was switched from the main river to the lock cut due to the rising river.

He had 8 good skimmers on the pole with maggot and worm. Second spot went to Chris Webb. He had one skimmer on the pole and big bag of bleak on whip with maggot. Steve Pope was third with a few skimmers on the pole and bag of bleak on the whip with maggot.

Fished in very difficult conditions, it was nice to see a few fish coming out on a rising river. It was also good to see a new name on the trophy.

Kevin Simpson alternated between maggot and worm on the feeder and had 2 bream a chub and some big roach.

Pete Jackson Memorial Cup
Sunday 30th August 2015
River Thames, Sandford
18 Fished
The Thames was in a dour mood with the distinct lack of roach . Which is a real difference to last years match which was a roach bonanza. Pete Clarke peg 17 came out top again with a big stripey (which proved to be the only one caught by any of the 18 anglers ) along with a net full of small fish to give him a winning weight of 8.15.0 . Second close behind on the peg next to the winner was Paul Bowers peg 16 who had a identical net of fish without a bonus fish weighing 8.2.0 caught on the whip at 7metres . Third was match organizer Tony Gee peg 22 on the high bank with 8.0.0 of small fish caught also on the whip at 7/8 metres . The match has become a great favourite with anglers already booking in for next years match . Thanks to Drennan international and Acorn Angling and Littlemore A.S . 300 was raised for this years charity Cancer Research .

Tony Perks Roach Cup
Sunday 23rd August 2015
River Thames, Sandford
17 Fished

With the lack of flow and rainfall so far this season, in hindsight it might have been better to fish this match in a few weeks time. The vast shoals of roach were reluctant to feed and the anglers struggled to catch. Brian Hutchings claimed the trophy for the fifth time with hard earned net taken on hemp and tare on the pole and waggler. Don Spearpoint was second. He caught all his on the long pole with hemp. Chris Webb was third. He also opted for the pole and waggler and caught all his on hemp.

A Good turnout at Sandford saw local rod Kevin Dolton record a good win by just 4 ounces and a much sort after 25 Top Tackle points! Fishing the pole with hemp and tares he had 9lb of roach plus 2lb perch on the chop worm. Brian Hutchings pushed Kevin all the way and just fell short at the end. He switched from waggler to pole when the wind picked up, and had a good net roach on the seed. Like most of the Thames at the moment, weed is a problem and Pete Clarke done well to find a few fish in the gaps. He fished waggler with hemp and tares and claimed third spot.

Paul Goodall kept up his form and had 1 carp and a few silvers for second. Mark Smith claimed 3rd place with a mixed net of Crucian carp and silvers. All his fish fell to worm.

Brian Hutchings claimed the last round of the Spring League and won the League overall. Boddingtons resident carp just didn't respond so it was a case of picking off the odd one and fishing for the roach. Brian had 2 carp to 6lb on the method with maggot. He then switched to the pole and had 12lb of roach. Mark had 2 early carp on the pellet waggler. That died off and he went for the roach with maggot. Bruno went for the roach from the start with maggot and was rewarded with 3rd place for his efforts.

Brian Hutchings started off the new season where he left off....Another win! On a new venture for the club we traveled over to Bishops Bowl were the wind played havoc with presentation. However Brian had the wind off his back for most of the match, and caught tight to reeds on the pole with pellet. He had 10 carp to 6lb for the win. Kevin Dolton was second but could easily have won the match. He fished tight to the small island but realised a big shoal of carp were in the outlet pipe in the margins. He fished shallow with banded pellet and had 20 carp to 4lb. Carl French, fishing his first match at the club, caught steadily all day. He had carp to 8lb and skimmers on the pole with pellet and worm for third place.
