WARRINGTON ANGLERS' ASSOCIATION: Mount at Buckley provides excellent sport all year

First published in Sport

IF you missed the working party on Moore Quarry two weeks ago there is another chance to get involved this weekend, meeting Sunday at 10am on the car park.

The Mount at Buckley has attracted a large number of members since the fishery was completely turned around a couple of years ago with quite a large introduction of carp.

It changed overnight from a hard water to one where excellent sport is now taken for granted due to the fact that the resident fish must now compete for their food.

However some anglers forget that seasonal weather changes will effect sport such as the present crystal clear water conditions when approaches need modifying to suit.

Phil Hancock was back on the venue again this week when he stuck to his successful small maggot feeder approach.

It was a slow start but regular feeding with reduced amounts of bait and the fish eventually latched onto his offerings. When they did it was quite literally a bite a chuck with a roach or a perch every cast.

Occasional carp are feeding and Phil witnessed a fellow member land one that was possibly a mid-double.

There was a different approach to our popular Mersey Series on Sunday when the match was changed into a rover.

A new winner, Pete Jones took the laurels (and the money). He fished a groundbait feeder from peg 68 to include a couple of hybrids for 3lbs 5oz 0drs.

Please note there no Mersey match this Sunday due to exceptional high tides.

Our Monday Disabled and Over 60s match on the Bridgewater Canal saw well known veteran angler Danny Sixsmith have a comfortable win on his first outing in this popular series.

He put a mixed net on the scales for 5-2-8 almost doubling the weight of runner-up George Barber on 2-10-10.
