26th September NAC Report for Mundesley

26th September NAC Monday night league report from Mundesley

Another fantastic turnout with 22 anglers at Mundesley, expectations were not high, with flat calm conditions and crystal clear water, and to add to that you could see the weed close in, but everyone was still keen to get started, even the chairman managed to stay until nearly the end and on a sand venue that’s pretty impressive.

A few new faces tonight joining the NAC ranks, Steve Farrell, Stuart Gotts,and Ian Childerhouse who has fished the estuary league but first time out on a monday with us, welcome to you all.

As the match progressed surprisingly a lot of fish were being caught, with reports of bass, flounders, dabs,sole, couple of smooth hounds and a sprinkling of pin whiting. The match was fished to a length only format with everything over 18cm counting towards your end tally.

65 Fish were caught and returned these included some nice bass the biggest being 58cm.

Another relatively new member Ben Nicholson on peg 3 managed a nice sole at 31cm and a smutt pup at 31cm, but it was Stuart Gotts on his first day with us, who managed a podium spot with 5 fish for 170cm, knocking Billy Rush into 3rd place with 5 fish for 149cm including a 57cm bass, but in the last 30 or so minutes it was that man again Neil Haynes who pulled it out the bag with 6 fish for 202cm, including a cracking bass at 58cm the biggest of the night.

The match was close throughout with the majority managing to get over the 50cm mark, which at this time of the year can be difficult. Well done to all who fished.

Points raised on the evening: A fly fishing instructional day will be organized by Leon Smith and assisted by Richard Chapman, giving all club members who wish to learn the basics a chance to do so, and hopefully give us some knew skills to apply to bass fly fishing next season, every club member is welcome to attend, dates , times and pricing wiil be posted up as soon as possible.

Next weeks match was scheduled for the Old High, but this will now either be at Heacham ( if no weed and a few fish about) or Sheringham Boulevard to the left , confirmation will be posted on Saturday.
