FOUNDATION LAKE NETTING & POOL 9 UPDATE Firstly can I thank everyone who has already paid their subscriptions for next season. The early payment is very important, especially this year because we are investing a huge amount in our fishery and cash flow is at a premium. Update on Progress Lake 9 The major work on Glebe Pool 9 is complete and we are slowly filling the lake up. I believe this will possibly be the best looking lake at The Glebe. Its design which includes 10 pegs on the West bank should make for very comfortable fishing. The Bottom Car Park This is taking shape and when the weather permits it will be stoned to make parking very safe and easy. The car parking space will be greater than it was before. Pool 9 – Stage 2 Those of you that have seen the construction will have noticed a ledge that will be the final water line. This is to facilitate the planting of the bank side vegetation in the form of reeds and rushes. As soon as the weather permits we will arrange a work party..
Today was the final round of the 2017 winter league run by Mr Ward at The Glebe fished in very mild conditions. Although the cold water temperatures & lack of colour meant it was going to be tricky. We had 24 members fishing today so we spread out, to give everyone plenty of room. Andy Thompson AKA Man With No Box (pictured) fished a good match to end with 85lb 2oz from peg 4 on lake 1 catching all his fish tight over on double maggot in conjunction with a small feeder. One fish behind was Assistant Fishery Manager Ross Nursey who fished the bomb & bread tight over on lake 5, peg 80 to finish with 80lb 8oz. The overall league result went down to the wire. But in the end this is how it finished :- 1st Graham Elliott 77 points 2nd Nick Mossop 76 points 3rd Gordon Parker 74 points 4th Stu Johnstone & Ross Nursey 73 points Pictured are the top 3 along with the match organiser Mr Ward. We have Members matches now every Sunday, so all members welcome to join us. Weigh sheets from today also..
We had 27 members attend round 9, the penultimate round, of The Glebe Winter League run by Mr Dippy Ward, who won the silver fish prize today with 17lb 11oz from peg 6 on lake 1. The cold weather & bright sunshine would yet again make fishing a challenge. Today’s match winner was Andy Boffin (pictured) who put together a weight of 86lb 1oz from Jamie’s hole, peg 101 on lake 7, catching initially on the tip before a switch late on in the match that he had been priming by pinging pellets & fishing banded pellet on the hook. Second today was Clive Hamilton from peg 99 on lake 7 & Graham Elliott from peg 77 on lake 5 who both weighed 72lb 13oz. With Baz “The Bomber” Cocks weighing 60lb 9oz from peg 79. So with the final round set for Sunday 3rd December, all members welcome, in terms of league standings, we have :- Nick Mossop leading with 76 points & potentially dropping 9 points. Graham Elliott on 75 points & potentially dropping 8 points. 3rd place is very tight with Gordon Parker,..
