Match Result

For Sunday 22/06/2014

1st Geoff Brierley      12lb 7oz    Peg S15
2nd Jason Ford         11lb 7oz    Peg S13
3rd Adam Vaughan    8lb 4oz     Peg S16
4th Dean Rutter         6lb 12oz   Peg S17

13 fished on a match that was held using only the Seckley water due to some unforeseen access problems on the Trolls stretch with fallen trees.
A low clear river combined with bright sunny conditions and sweltering heat made for difficult fishing conditions. Feeder fished ambush pellets was the winning tactic that accounted for the Barbel that were caught.

The next match is this Sunday 29th June.
Urgent work is required to gain access to some of the pegs on the trolls stretch. Any members with free time during this week who are able to support bank clearing work should contact Jason Ford.

River Season Opening Day Knock Up Result

 1st Geoff Brierley      16lb 11oz   Peg S10

2nd John Knight        15lb  5oz    Peg S2
 3rd Andy Waller        13lb  8oz    Peg S15

8 Willow Creek members fished an opening day of the season 'knock up' match on the new club water at Seckley. The river seemed to be in perfect condition having fallen to only 8 inches above summer level during the week and still had a tinge of colour. Predictably, the resident barbel were not in a feeding mood but the result was close at the weigh in. Geoff Brierley drew on the ford below Victoria Bridge and caught 4 barbel feeder fished ambush pellets. John 'The Silver Surfer' Knight made a welcome return to the river and placed 2 barbel on the scales (including one of over 9 pounds) to take second spot.
