well this weekend we headed out into the wyre forrest to a fishery called sion farm. the mist was down and we couldn't even see the pool when we arrived but that soon lifted as the sun came out. before we started gordon spotted a bad tempered heron on top of dave preeces car which went on to crap all over john goodes car roof we named the herron alfie as it was a bad tempered buuger just like mobbsie as seen below on daves car anyway the draw was made we alwaays put the less abled bodies in the first pegs and i always put one more than needed in the draw which gives someone else a chance to fish without to much of a walk, guess who drew it? yes me the stick started flying around even before the off i drew peg 2 almost in the car park as seen below. peg 2 what can i say anyway with jim langston not being able to make it it threw the aggregate open again so a few of us had a lot to fish for again. below we find alfie and his moaning apprentice tony kibble talking tactics before the off. well on the day the carp didn't want to come out and play with only about half a dozen of em being caught so it turned into a silver fish match which made a nice change. to my left stan was putting together a good double figure all roach catch taken on worm and john poole to my right banging out small skimmers every catch. i was catching steadily with mainly small skimmers and roach taken on corn, paste and red maggots. here we find tony not had his best season by his high standards buts he alwas puts a good few fish on the scales. big petes turn weigh in. nice to see one of our old boys back. andrew kibble fished as a guest and kicked his brother tony arse on the day another grumpy looking bugger mr gordon at the weigh in, it's going to be a hard choice to pick the winner of the victor meldrew trophy this year, might give it to that bloody heron big stewart with another bag full of monsters well done stewart mate. this chap is having his best season for a long time mark was second on the day. what can i say i had such big hopes for neil this year, where did it all go wrong mate gordon thinks to him self i wish i had gone on holiday again never mind mate im sure you'll put it right at the next match. neil trys on dad peters willy warmer which seems to amuse mr kibble my partner in the doubles final john goode at the weigh in john your supposed to have some fish in your bloody net! john it's not funny we got beat oh well we had a good run of 2 years together lets hope i draw him again next year yes alright mr horner i know you and micky have beat us now stop rubbing it in, stupid boy! paul got off to a flyer being the first to land a carp but it all went down hill from there our star man mr preece once again put a good bag of fish on the scales and could yet win this years shadow league. good luck dave. one word " GIT " well done mick alf needs stans help to haul out his catch i think it's love! stan had one of his better days john poole as per normal had a good bag of fish. don't say a word colin i'm not talking to you! and you can shut up as well mr kibble john decided to get over our loss by having sex with his rod bag! my arse yes you lot i know it's not enough to beat em in my net stan pulls his big net of roach onto the bank. well thats it for another match well done kids see you all at blythe waters in 2 weeks time. thanks once again to john poole for taking all those great pictures.
