Today was round 3 of Dippy Wards Winter League (pictured wearing a new hat courtesy of Nigel Bond). With rain forecast until 4pm we had a low turnout of 24 members who braved the conditions. With the recent windy conditions this was always going to spur the resident Carp into feeding & so it proved with 18 members weighing in excess of 100lb. With a Superb sport for the time of year. In fact everyone who fished today has had a nice day. Despite the wet weather. Back from two weeks fishing the Maver & Preston Innovations Festivals was Mick Lees who made no mistakes from peg 88 on lake 6 with a superb 223lb 9oz, catching initially on the feeder tight over before switching to the short pole & a strong finish down his margins. Second today was out of form Andrew Williams who weighed 198lb 13oz from end peg 76 on lake 5. A great start at 5m on soft pellets saw him put 65lb in his nets after 1 hour 15 minutes before switching to the feeder & then soft pellets at 7m, before a steady run down..
SAD NEWS Dear Members and Friends Sadly I have to report that one of our members has passed away last Tuesday. Many of you will remember Paul Derry who ran a Plumbing and Heating company based in Newark. Paul always supported the club and was the first to help if we needed it. I am sure you will join me in offering my condolences to his family in this difficult time. He will be sadly missed at the fishery.
Dear Members Please find below the latest itinerary for the Glebe. We are nearing the end of many events so there are plenty of lakes to have a go at before it gets cold. Safest be to catch plenty as it gets colder are Glebe Pools 2,8,9 that are fishing brilliantly. Don’t forget as it gets colder smaller pellets will be often better that big ones to feed and catch on. If you want to know the best places to fish you can always give me a ring, it’s not a problem. Dippy News As you know Mr Dippy Ward tries to run our winter league with some Adult Supervision. With Andrew Williams away, yet again we have witnessed a disaster. Last week, Baz the Bomber Cox was appointed Dippy’s carer, would have been better to ask my dog Molly to assist. I have tried my very best to try and support Dippy even though he has been demoted on several occasions. We all have to accept that multi tasking is not in his vocabulary. Last weeks episode was not unusual. At the payout Dippy was short of money,(nothing new)..
