NAC Report 28-11-16 Walcott

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.

Well done to all who fished next weeks match is at Kelling meet at the gate at 6pm, please make sure to book in asap and book your bait early.

Congratulations is also in order to Charlie’s Angels, headed up by Captain Charlie Needham, Russell Taylor, Richard Hipperson, Dene Conway and Paul Kendrick, who managed a 10th place as a team out of 30 teams, with some of the best anglers in the country competing.

Also thank you and well done to Richard Chapman who stepped in to assist North Norfolk lads team as one of their team members wasn’t very well. With the club growing and more members taking an interest in the match circuit if anyone would like to know more about upcoming open events please let one of the committee know, it may be time to put together another team of five for future events.

The AGM will be held in January and all club members and family are welcome to attend this is your chance to have your say and of course it will be a social evening with food being served, prices for this event are £12 per person it will be held in Overstrand at the Kingswood Activity Centre, all monies for this need to be in by 7th of December so please make this a priority for next week’s match for more info contact club secretary Simon Bone

NAC Report 21-11-16 Salthouse

NAC Match Report Salthouse 21/11/16

16 anglers descended on Salthouse to do battle once again with the whiting and dabs and with the wind off our backs and a generally mild evening all were expectant of a good match. making his debut for the club tonight was Adrian Bordianu who was looked after and entertained by Ben Nicholson and Ian Childerhouse either side of him, this makes new members feel welcome from the start and can only increase our membership.

From the off fish were coming in with plenty of undersized fish as well as some cracking whiting upto 37cm and some good sized dabs, going back over the results you could see it was a tale of two halves with the lower pegs struggling to find more quality fish, as you can see from the stats picture below (yes way too much time on my hands today), now going on where we pegged the lower numbers were where the first hump used to be. Anyway back to the results.

Out in front on 20 fish for 7lb 6 was Leon Smith (peg 9) taking top spot this week and an extra £1 from Dene for their on going challenge, second place and as previously stated making his debut was Adrian Bordianu (peg 13) with 16 fish for 5lb 9 2/3oz, narrowly pushing Ian Childerhouse (peg 12) into 3rd place also 16 fish for 5lb 9 1/3oz.

The top ten spots or so were dictated by one or two fish and some by ounces, so a very close match with everyone doing well and a thoroughly enjoyable evening once again, well done to everyon.

Next weeks match is at Walcott, please make sure to book your bait and to book in early, big teams of five finals weekend this weekend also so bait will be by order only.

NAC Report 14-11-16 Cley


18 anglers arrived at Cley, and as some had already fished the day before at the teams of five match, which wasn’t particularly good fishing, expectations were not great, although we were in darkness and tonight’s match was a length only match who knew how it would pan out.

The influx of good sized whiting as is normal this time of year, just have not made their appearance yet, so pin whiting and small dabs were the mainstay.

Being a length only match this allows club members to concentrate on numbers rather than weight and also gives experience for those who travel away to other parts of the country where length only matches are the norm.

The match was pegged left and right of the car park, and from the off dabs and tings were showing, nothing big and no consistency to distances for some, but a few managed to find the odd sweet spot which resulted in a steady flow of singles, doubles and the odd triple shot.

There was a quiet spot half way through the match due to slack water but as soon as the tide started to push again the fish were back on the feed.

This turned into one of the best matches NAC have had in a long time, with most carding and most finding a good number of fish and some excellent battles between people, notable performances came from Neil Haynes with 18 fish for 366cm, Luke Childerhouse with 17 fish for 350cm and Will Sprules with 15 fish 316cm, some struggled to find the fish early but came good towards the end of the match.

It was also a new experience for Lee Morgan fishing his first club match also managed to save the blank with a couple of fish, welcome to the mad house.

Out on peg 1 was Charlie Needham who was battling with Simone Bone on peg 4 , but using the end peg and blank peg advantage he managed to push Simon into third place with 20 fish for 428cm, giving Charlie second place with 20 fish for 444, but it was Dene Conway on peg 14 taking top rod honors for the second week in a row carding 26 fish for 526cm.

All in all 189 fish were recorded in 3 and half hours and everyone enjoyed a great evening and an excellent match.

Next week’s match is at Salthouse and is a normal club match everyone welcome.

NAC Report 7-11-16 Weybourne

13 anglers arrived at Weybourne for this week’s Norfolk Angling Club match as several members are away including our very own Kimberley Lawn who is currently representing England Ladies at the World Shore Angling Championships in Ireland so good luck to her and all the home nation teams.

After a few days of rough weather, unfishable seas and bitter cold winds, it was nice to see the waves had diminished somewhat, the wind had died down totally and the rain had stopped, so no fear of cancelling this match which was to be a roving match catch and release format as normal. From Weybourne carpark to the left we were spread out, and our hopes were set on the arrival of some good whiting, dabs and flounders and whatever else may be thrown up this time of year as it can be very unpredictable.

Fishing the flood tide in moderate to rough seas, we all set our shelters and gear up on top of the shingle bank in case of any rogue waves, but after the first cast and the realization that there was a tremendous amount of red weed in close, most decided to take their rod and stand to the waters edge and keep them up high to avoid the waves and weed, this proved to be the only way forward for most to allow time to connect with a few fish before the weed ripped your grip lead out and off you trotted washed up or buried in the shingle.

Richard Hipperson (the coach) had a surprising start with a nice 30cm sole, along with Dene and Simon all three were directly over from the carpark and were slowly picking out the odd sizeable fish, a slack line bite for Dene resulted in plump 27cm Pout, but it was nip and tuck between these three right up until the last 30 mins when Dene managed to card a double of good dabs and a single on the last cast. Meanwhile up towards the wreck Charlie Needham had not found a sizeable fish by 10pm but managed to scratch out 5 fish in the last 30 minutes to secure 3rd place with 2lb 1 1/3oz just showing that no matter how bad the match is it can all change in the last few minutes so perseverance and patience can sometimes be rewarded.

Meanwhile back at the cliffs, the two Pete’s (Durkin and Hansell) had called it a day and departed before the fish came on, but it was back at the other end where father and son duo were battling once again, it was Ian Childerhouse who did the business finding 9 fish for 2lb 13 1/3oz giving him 2nd place overall.
Also, up that end was Richard Chapman who had a nightmare of a match losing 8 or so sets of leads but still fought on to save the blank, well done mate.

Taking top spot this week was Dene Conway managing 8 fish for 2lb 15 2/3oz, a close-run battle with Ian Childerhouse with only 7pts separating 1st and 2nd place.

All in all it was a pleasant evening, hard fishing conditions and certainly not for the faint hearted so well done to everyone for sticking at it. Some good-sized whiting and dabs were also recorded so it shouldn’t be too long before the winter fishing is in full swing with big weights on the cards each week. In total 43 fish were caught and returned.

Next week’s match is scheduled for Cley and is a length only match, if for any reason this needs to be changed announcements will be made on Facebook and via text message, please make sure you book in early especially with bait orders.
