NAC Match Report 28/11/16 (Walcott) Weybourne
Walcott was the venue for the club match this week, however upon arrival it was deemed unsafe and unfishable, so the committee sprang into action and contacted all members on route to change course for Weybourne and back on the shingle, 7:30 was the proposed later start but everyone managed to get there and on their pegs with time to spare, originally going to be a length only match it was deemed easier to fish for sizeable fish as we were expecting the whiting and dabs to be out in force.
A clear sky with little wind and temperatures dropping, if the fish didn’t turn up this could be our first frosty winter match.
New member Tim Walthew was warmly welcomed to the club and Paul Rickard offered to assist him throughout the match to get him used to the club environment and show him the ropes so to speak.
From the off fish were coming out and in some respects tonight’s match was about stamina and pockets of good fish versus pockets of smaller fish as the stats show. With everyone reporting doubles and triples of the smaller fish I think the majority would have carded over 40 fish each had it stayed at length only.
Some excellent whiting up to the 37cm mark along with some cracking pouting and dabs, blow lug, mackerel, yellowtails seemed to be doing the damage and all at various ranges, bait presentation went out the window for some members in an attempt to get back in the water quicker, tonight it really could’ve been anyone’s match.
The Childerhouse men have a great battle each week, but once again it was Ian “The Daddy” Childerhouse overpowering Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse, both with 18 fish but Ian grabbing 2nd place podium spot with 7lb 6 1/3oz to Luke’s 6lb 15 1/3oz for 3rd place podium, great banter before and afterwards, and Luke may need a brighter headlamp to come out from his dads shadow and win, fair play to both of you for a well fished match.
Only the second match for this new member with last week’s 2nd place and this week taking the top rod honours was Adrian Bordianu with 21 fish 7lb 11 2/3oz, certainly a name to watch not just in the club league but on the match circuit.
