today was a special day as we all rememberd the late alfie mobbs sadly missed by all his mates on the bank first up a picture of the old boy enjoying himself doing what he loved "FISHING"  at one of our matches a few years ago at fisherwick on the streams pool.

anyway on to the report of the days match. we start a lot closer to home. now my lots navigational skills are not brilliant to say the least! Rolling Eyes  this had to be a new low though, we had lost half of em just getting of the bromford estate and on to the tyburn road scratch . anyway we managed to find em all and off we set down the aston express way one finger salutes as we past villa park lol! following the pershore road all the way to alvechurch fishery.on arrival phil the gaffa at alvechurch likes to get you all together in the club house to explain the rules one being only 60lb of per net at which point we get the normal coments of we  won't fill all our nets with 60lb ! he's never seen our club fish Embarassed lol!
well  coments like that came back to haunt one of our daft members. Rolling Eyes
well of we trotted to our pegs after the draw.  drew peg 11 towards the top end of the island on the river side. i had big jim langston to my right and big belly colin horner to my left lol!
i was quite happy with the peg i drew to far for pole to reach so pellet feeder was the way i was going today.
i started well landing a stockie early on but then went on a run of losing fish Sad first hour only 2 in the net and 5 lost, 2 at the net. time was getting on and caught a couple more and lost a couple more!scratch decided to go up from a size 16 pellet banded hook to a 14 which seemed to do the trick and i started landing  a few. trouble was all could hear to my right was loads of splashing as mr langston landed fish after fish. he was catching carp, barbel , some good bream plus tench. he hit one big un that snapped his elastic as it made for the island.i could see the bubbles in jims swim is was like someone had tossed a full tin of alka salsa , he was putting together a bloody good weight , while to my left old big belly horner was also banging out a few good fish.from the other side of the island i could'nt see em but icould hear stuart berrows squeaky voice and none stop laughter from mark poole and tony walker. seemed every one was having a good day for a change Very Happy
in the end jim kicked our asses by putting a good mixed bag on the scales which went round 82lb plus . on the other side of the island dave gordon the dopey sod pulled his net out to find he had 74lb in one net! he knew the rules and phil the gaffa was fair about it and knocked his weight down to the 60lb limit, dave was ok about it and accepted he had broken the rules , in the end it made no difference to the result as he would have weighed in just over 80lb with his silver fish net, i think he weighed in 66lb in the end. a special mention to our elder statesman mr john poole 82 years of age and weight in 61lb well done sir. evryone caught a few fish enjoyed the day. a big thank you to the boss phil who looked after us and did  a great job on the scales, we'll be back next year for sure.
so onto the pictures.
first up we have dan constables grandad who came along as a guest. his name is morris or is it maurice  lol!  not sure lol! anyway he managed to land a lovely 9lb plus common, well done that man.
