well we all met up for the final leg of this years winter league to be fished on the kingfisher pool at blythe waters fishery. well first surprise of the day it wasn't raining, not yet anyway
i gathered the lads together outside the fishery club house to inform them all of the date of alfies funeral. dave gordon decide to take charge of a collection for alfie. a very big thanks to gail at blythe who made a donation ,thank you young lady.also i must say a big thank you to one of our new boys adrian constable who finished 3rd on the day and donated his winnings to alfie's collection a man he had never even met, thank you adrian a very kind gesture.as for the match well to say it fished badly is an understatement. it started well for me and a few others for the first couple of hours but then the temp dropped and the fishing just died
on the other bank from me dave gordon never had a bite and packed all his gear up apart from his ledger rod with an hour to go. john goode was having a good day in the top corner of the pool dragging a good few carp from the water. anyway with about half an hour to go we could see a huge dark cloud on it's way in our direction. everyone had just about had enough it was cold and windy and all we needed was a good soaking
while everyone was packing up before we got soaked dave jammy git gordon had his line tugged his first fish of the day in the net
and then to make things worse the git landed another two before the whistle went and won the bloody match!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well done dave
funniest moment of the day was micky davis falling on his arse in the mud trying to cock his leg over a rope barrier , wish i had my camera at the ready
