Eric Bates Memorial.18/10/20.R.Severn Coalport. 31fished.River condition + 18ins,water temperature 10°c.
On the day the river was pushing through,the colour looked half decent.
On the last runoff on the RDAS water Steve Slade set out his stall to float fish mid river on the maggot.From the start of the match the chub lined up and gorged on Steve’s bait and with 26 chub and 3 stray barbel in the keepnet the scalesmen recorded Steve’s winning weight at 39-4-0.
Fishing a peg in the 50s,the one with an attractive fallen tree to the right-hand side of the peg, Gary Farmer set up a balsa bodied float to long trot the maggot down the swim, every chub Gary landed dived to the right for the sunken tree, most were netted for fine 34-7-0 and second on the day.
3rd. Mr reliable Dave Dickinson fished below the sewerage bridge for 27-6-0
4th Keith Jones fishing below the twin cottages weighed in 4 barbel and 3 chub for 26-13-0

River Severn Coalport. 24 fished.River conditions + 3ft rising,coloured.Water temp.12°C.

Five days prior to the contest it was requested that all competitors wear face covering at the draw.l must now personally thank the Chairman who ensured we had additional masks if needed and to all the lads on the day for following the request.

The storm clouds had cleared for the 8-30 draw,after the draw the pegging board showed that 11 competitors were in the bottom meadow and as you would expect nearly all the pegs in Barbel Alley had been taken.

The winner Ash Meekcom was in Barbel Alley opposite the sunken tree trunks,last January in the same peg with 8 ft of flood water on the river Ash won the match by banging a 6 oz lead to the far bank,today that method was proving difficult with leaves and rubbish catching the line.With two canoeists approaching Ash retrieved his gear and with a under arm cast dropped his pellet/wrap under the nearside bank, immediately the rod whacked over,with four more barbel coming to the landing net, Ash was top rod with 31-4-0.

Iveagh Dickens knows the bottom meadow(Kites) inside out and consequently made no mistakes with a respectable 19-11-0.

Dave Dickinson is rarely outside of the frame, Dave was also pegged in Kites Meadow and weighed in 17-2-0.

Last year’s aggregate winner Geoff Jones fishing three pegs up from the end of the RDAS waters had two barbel for 14-14-0.

Annual Cup.20/9/20. R.Severn Coalport.35 fished.River conditions + 3ins, slight tinge of colour,water temp.16°c
There were great expectations from the competitors fishing the Barbel Alley pegs,but on the day like all the other barbel pegs on the stretch those expectations crashed and burned with the barbel simply having a day off from feeding.Way upstream on the Culvert Peg it was Steve Slade’s day,forty minutes into the match he was on his way to take a thumping 21 chub to the scales for a resounding winning weight of 60lbs.Steve fished his peg mid river with a wire stem stick float, feeding and fishing the maggot for the first hour he then switched to the meat to tempt chub up to 5lbs.
Fishing one of his favourite pegs below the cottages Ken Tromans dipped his bread on the caster,he dropped his feeder near the far bank to tempt 12 chub up to 6lbs and one stray barbel for a splendid 44-8-0.

Match Report.

Barbel Alley strikes again by producing three of the top weights on a rising river Severn.Top rod on the day was Mal Williams with 4 barbel and one chub for 29-8-0 Mal fished meat and pellet casting past mid river.Mal managed to miss the keep net with one barbel,the excuse was, his specticals steamed up,or something like that.

At the top end of the water on the first bay Kevin Jew the clubs chairman set up a whip and barbel rod. First off Kev baited up for the bream,he decided to let the inside swim settle,first cast on the feeder rod, bingo, a barbel, the rest is history 23-11-0 for second place.

Back to Barbel Alley with third place going to Kevin Sidaway netting barbel and a stray chub for 20-3-0.

River conditions.Below summer level,water temperature 20°c.
Top rod Geoff Jones does the business again,he picks a peg that hasn’t seriously been fished individually/ matches for donkey’s years and nets 9 barbel for 38-9-0 on double 8mm pellet,feeding 4mm in the feeder.Geoff stated, you know when you are on a winner when the rod whacks over on the first cast.Match results show that from 9 matches fished Geoff has finished in the top five match placings eight times.One of the smaller barbel, say 1•5 lbs in Geoff’s catch had the blue blotch on it’s underside,this indicated it was one of the EA’s Calverton barbel stocked on our waters last December.
Simon Marvin was downstream and within shouting distance of the winner and also on a peg that lost it’s form ages ago.Working a cage feeder packed with sweet corn on the 3/4 and middle line of his 9 ft deep swim Simon netted 2 barbel,1chub,and 3 bostin big bream, all taken on sweet corn to weighing at 27-15-0.

On match morning news filtered through that on the previous day a match on the K.D.A.A. waters at Bewdley had been won with a low weight of 11lbs.On many occasions this phenomenon can be repeated on many venues along the Severn Valley for many days later, including Coalport,in fact, on the day many of our front line pegs failed to show, but never the less that didn’t stop Kevin Hodgetts from netting the top weight with 29-6-0 from the well known beach peg.Three pegs below and casting over to the sunken tree’s in Barbel Alley lveagh Dickens did the business with 21-14-0.Jim Wilson float fishing a peg behind the chain link fence and framing for three in a row, weighed in 19-1-0 Fourth place in Barbel Alley went to Mick Smith netting 16-15-0.

On all matches the match stewards have their numerical disc numbers drawn after all competitors have drawn first,is this a disadvantage,just ask Geoff Jones after fellow match steward Kevin Jew draws his disc,and calls out No.2.With the first competitor choosing peg 80 Geoff was gifted his favourite peg in the 70s.Casting a feeder packed with 4 mm pellet and two hair rigged 8mm pellets over to the sunken tree bows with his ancient Mal Storey Mark 2 feeder rod the match was won,Geoff netted 6 barbel & 3 chub for 37-8-0.
Due to family commitments Mark Tyler was away from the match scene for a number years and on today’s match he recorded his best match weight since his return with a respectable 29-9-0 by netting 5 barbel on hair rigged luncheon meat.

Local member Phil Lowe, based up the road from Coalport, and well within cycling distance uses no other transport to travel to our Severn Bank Fishery,we now call him,The Bicycle Man.Today Phil dipped his bread from the peg just below the cottages with an all barbel catch of 35-5-0, best barbel 10lbs,all taken on spicy meat prepared by his good wife.
At the draw Geoff Jones drew disc No.35 leaving him last in numerical order to pick his peg,Geoff used this to his advantage,just two weeks ago when individually fishing peg 79 he spotted barbel rolling two or three pegs above,say no more that’s where Geoff fished.From the off barbel fell to double 8mm pellet cast to the far bank,two hours into the match and with the river rising, those barbel shut off,leaving  six barbel in the net for 34-9-0.

Originally this match was cancelled back in October due to flooding and was re-scheduled for Jan.19th.
With the R.Severn in flood for 15 weeks, inclusive of today’s date, the lads decided to bite the bullet and get this match on the road.
Top rod on today’s match was Ash Meekcom, fishing the flooded peg 95, Ash fished the nearside on the maggot feeder for two small barbel, a tactical switch to a 6oz lead and a 14mm hair rigged pellet cast to mid river and holding bottom at approx 45° did the business with two more additional match winning barbel to grace the landing net for a total of 14-10-0.(photo.Ash and his 4th barbel).
Geoff Jones was on the boiling and swirling peg 50 fishing the straight lead and hair rigged meat, then at precisely mid- day the tip twitched twice and then wrapped over to the lunges of a 9-4-0 barbel, and second place on the day.
Recently Kenny Tromans lost his lovely wife Jan and all thoughts of fishing went on the back burner, but slowly Ken’s getting back in the groove,fishing the meat and straight lead on peg 75 Ken netted two barbel for 8-6-0 and third place on the day.

Aggregate.The final countdown.
Prior the match Dave Dickinson was leading Gary Tarr by 12 points
(327) to Gary’s (315).
Dave fished peg 38,section 3 on the day,a peg that pushes through even more so with 12ins on,depth 3•5 ft.its a popular float peg for chub.
Gary fished peg 87, section 9, just the opposite to Dave’s peg,10ft deep with a sunken tree opposite, it’s a good winter or flood peg on the feeder or straight lead for barbel and a few bream.
The match stewards confirmed all section weighin boards are back in  after the match, Dave Dickinson weighed 6-4-0 against Gary’s 25-14-0.The aggregate winner is to close to call so it’s back to the Green Man pub to bash out the full match results.

What a cracking match to end our calender year,nineteen double figure weights, with Trevor Smith topping the list with 49-15-0 from the peg we know as Des Taylors Peg,his match winning catch consisted of 12 chub and 3 barbel.Typically on the Severn now you can have five barbel for 12 lbs or like Dave Burford you can put  four barbel on the scales for 32-10-0 which included the best barbel on the day of 11-10-0 all taken on luncheon meat from the so called, Car Park Peg.

Trevor Skeldon fished his favourite peg in the 80s on the float and meat for a walk away winning weight of 38-10-0 which included, 8 barbel and 2 chub.The consistent Dave Dickinson pegged in the bottom meadow netted 8 chub and 4 barbel for 24-10-0, which also increased his overall ponts lead in the aggregate to 27.It was interesting to note that the barbel count on the day was 68, that’s the best this year.Mark Shrimpton just missed out on the best barbel in the last match, but he made it this time round with a 8-10-0 fish.

The Environment Agency River Report for the Severn at Coalport on Sunday was spot on, so no surprises, except for the continual strands of free weed cluttering the feeder and hook bait throughout the five hour match. The river conditions suited the barbel with 55 caught on the day, chub were well below parr at 36.
Congratulations go to Mal Williams who was top rod on the day with 8 barbel and 2 chub for 42-4-0. On the notorious snag bound Rock Hole  Ash Meekcom netted 4 barbel and 1chub for 22-6-0 but cursed his luck at being sawn off by six other brutes and had to be content with second place overall plus the best barbel on the day at 8-4-0

I must admit that on the day all the plaudits go out to our chairman Kevin Jew who gave me a right roasting with a 15-6-0  against my miserable 2-1-0, but never mind it will give me great pleasure to present Kevin with the rose bowl dressed with twelve blood red rose’s at this year’s prize presentation in November.
On the day Kevin fished just below the sewage bridge and with plenty of streamer weed in his swim Kevin fished mid river for the first two hours of the five hour match on the  Waggler taking just a couple of small Chub,but Kev had noticed the flashing dace on the inside line, so out came the whip and damage was done,no matter Kev that 4lb chub that smashed you on the final whistle must have been on my side.
Cheers Kev, from Roy a roasted secretary.

River conditions, normal winter level,water temp.4°
1.Gary Farmer. 9-10-0.On a cold river Gary searched the swim for chub on the bread without success,a switch to bronze and red maggot fished down the middle on the waggler produced a chub  of 3-8-0 with three more to follow in the second hour of the five hour match.

2.Mick Tarr. 7-10-0.With chub in mind Mick fished the blockend feeder to 6lb reel line a 4lb hook length to a size 16 hook and bronze maggot
all cast to the mid river.Mick’s lean spell on matches finally came to an end with two chub the best being 4-1-0.

3.Lecky Lester.7-3-0.Mid river blockend feeder and liquidised bread and taking no chances with 10lb reel line 8lb hook length size 12 hook with bread flake or cheese paste wrapped around a stonfo, that was Lecky’s  line of attack.Three Chub in the net by the second hour a fourth close to the final whistle all had a liking to bread flake and the old fashioned winter bait that cannot be ignored, cheese paste.

4.Roy Woodhouse.5-3-8.With slack water meeting the flow in mid river Roy decided that was the best spot to drop a small cage feeder packed with liquidised bread and flake on the hook to tempt a chub, after forty minutes and with no joy it was time to try the cheese paste cast out to the same spot, with Roy being  distraction by a kingfisher the rod whacked over and the fish self hooked, it turned out to be the best fish and chub on the day, that’s the way to do it.

1.Julian Gold.8-14-0.Julian fished the feeder & straight lead on the near side with meat & paste on the hook, but with little success and getting snagged up in weed Julian cast to mid river, and much to his surprise he hooked two fish in the fast water but pulled out of both,but with luck on his side Julian had another two takes and with no mistakes this time around he netted 2 barbel to win the match.

2.Steve Slade.7-11-0.Steve’s set up was nice and simple straight lead and hair rigged plain luncheon meat cast to mid river to take 1barbel and a chub in the the third hour of the five hour match.

3.John Smith 6-1-0 it was the maggot feeder that did the business for  John on the day he had a run of small Chub and single barbel from in front and to the right of his deep back swim.John was unlucky to lose one of those monster Coalport chub at the rim of the landing net which in all probability cost him the match.
4.Kevin Hodgetts.5-2-0.One bite 1 chub on a hair rigged 8mm pellet, plus it was best fish on the day, Kevin that’s the way to do it.(see photo)
