well 12 hardy souls turned up to fish at coppice lane on becketts pool . conditions were good for kite flying but little else.it was like fishing out on the sea in gale force winds well we got to meet our 2 new members father and son dan and adrian constable. they must have been well impressed i thought i'd buggered up with 13 instead of 12 fishing and after paying the fishery boss an extra 4 quid i realised i had stewarts name down twice!! back to jamie the fishery boss to ask for the 4 quid back. things could only get better, couldn't they! well no i told colin to put 15 peg numbers in the bag when we only had 12 fishing and dave and tony pegged out 15 as well, dohhhhhhhhhhhhh. well at least the rain held off after seting up i looked left onlt to see jim langstons arse eclipsing the sun to my right i had tony for company and stewart to my left. to say this match was hard work was an understatment.the wind made pole fishing a total waste of time and even jim through out a feeder. anyway we was'nt going to let a little bit of wind stop us in the end jim made it 3 out of 3 winter match wins, can anyone stop this man winning the grand slam? tony did well to come second and gordon put over 15 lbs on the scales to come second. well done lads it was damn hard work out there in that wind. below we find new boy adrian ready to battle the wind and did very well coming 4th just outside the pools money. next we find jim without his ample arse on show and here we find new member number 2 mr constable the younger who also put some weight on the scales, well done dan. mr gordon had a hard day out in the wind stuggling for a few silvers. and his arse is no where near as big as jims looks like it's silly hats time again eh stewart and to my right we have tony kibble who was ready to go home after an hour till he started catching, well done mate. well john goode had a strange day 2 fish first 2 casts then no more bite for almost 5 hours, thats fishing john next we find mark who managed a couple of carp on the day well done young man. gordon had one of his better days coming third well done my son. now don't laugh but this is dave gordons cath which was good enough to beta four of us the new weighing in team gordon and stewart doing a great job, thanks lads here they are again at work enjoying the sunshine! gordon showing off his third place catch. well it was damn hard yesterday but we all battled on to the end well done all , see you all in 2 weeks time at blythe waters and lets hope we get some sunshine for a change.
