Warrington Anglers’ Association
11:52am Thursday 17th May 2012 in Angling
LAST week I reported that rumours were circulating that ‘the big one’ made a recent appearance from Moore Quarry.
Andy Weston not only had a PB tench of 10lbs 4ozs 0drs but as a bonus was also the captor of the 34-10-0 mirror, also a UK best taken in the same session.
Ralph Bennett fished an afternoon session on the Mount in blustery wind and showers mixed with bright sunlight, a real weather mixture and not ideal conditions for fishing.
His small method feeder and double corn offering produced nothing but strands of weed.
He changed to single and added a yellow foam ball to his hair rig which brought about an immediate result, a 4lb tench followed by three others along with four carp to around 3lbs.
New member Stuart Dunning, on his first visit to a WAA fishery, had a common of 7lbs plus three around 14lbs while his mate had eight carp.
Charles Gould fished Grey Mist Mere for the first time last week and smashed his tench PB twice with fish of 6-3-0 and 6-5-0.
His son James only managed one tench at 6-9-0 taken on waggler tactics.
Both our teams were knocked out of the Angling Times Supercup Competition.
Warrington Black came close with a 4 section apiece score but were defeated on a weight count back by the local team Isaac Walton, 260lbs to 238lbs.
Highlights were Stuart Hardman, who won the match with 68lbs, and Nathan Rowles, who won his section with 47lbs.
Our Warrington Blue team were at the wrong end of a 5 - 3 result against Mersey Dockers but Neil Davies was second in the match with 22-2-0 and our young star Jake Fowles won his section with 20lbs.
The Disabled and Over 60s match fished poorly this week with winner Barry Owen needing only 4lbs to take the top prize.
Our Fish of the Month competition for April was won by Adam Whelan with a common carp caught from Cicily Mill Pool weighing 21-8-0.
