Stan wins Championship for the 4th year:

Once again another season's match calendar has come to an end and I would say it's been a pretty memorable season with new records and lots of welcome new faces. The top few places of the Championship were closely contested but only Matt Young could have knocked me off the top...but for the last match he was committed elsewhere leaving only the next four places to be claimed on our last match at Felmersham. As you can read in the write-up, this was a hard day with our lowest weights of the season, a shame really as several members have reported roach and dace bags up to 25lb in recent months and chub to nearly 7lb have come out to members prepared to hunt them down. And well done to Paul Bangs for a great 2nd place on the day with Brian moving into 3rd.

Looking forward:
Will next season see Josh Blavin's five-hour record of 422lb be beaten? Will we have an event where more than 3,666lb is weighed in and will we have a match with more than 18 ton-plus weights recorded. Who knows, certainly with increasing numbers looking to join in the fun the match committee will need to look for larger venues. Also, will Matt (pictured right) take the Championship next season? With four wins, two 2nds and a 3rd out of 10 matches he's more often than not the one to beat. Unless, that is, when Nick Darke joins us, fishing two matches and winning both, one with a 17lb catfish on the pole, the other with 410lb of carp.

If you have any suggestions for suitable venues, ideally not too far from St Albans and able to accommodate close to 30, please let Brian or Stan know. It might be one we've not heard of or considered and we are always willing to keep options open with new venues and new challenges.


A reminder that, due to demand, booking for ALL MATCHES is vital. This must be via email or text, don't just mention it whilst weighing in two months earlier and expect us to remember. And, if you fail to turn up, you will be liable for the peg fee.
