Happy new year.
Was the first match after the Xmas break, it was a quiet one as many of the regulars had been away fishing the Asso open in Kent at the weekend and were understandably tired or wanted to spend some time with there family.
8 anglers did turn up though and the location was changed to weybourne , pegging was to the left of the pipe.
With some large waves at times and the weed making an appearance towards the end it was a hard match and the lack of sizeable fish didn’t help things either.
When the fish did turn up every now and again there was some nice size ones in amongst the usual undersized with almost all carding a 30cm+ whiting or two but it fell to Adrian to find the biggest of the night with a 37cm.
Still a lot of dabs around, most under 23cm but young Jimmy Shaul managed to find a 24cm to give him biggest flat of the night.
Adrian Bordianu 30pts
Russell Taylor 29pts
Adrian Charlie Needham 28pts
John Catchpole 27pts

The last NAC match before Christmas, 15 anglers turned out for an epic battle at Salthouse, with tonight’s match being a length only match high numbers of fish were expected, and we were not disappointed, from the first cast to the last doubles & trebles of dabs, and whiting , with the biggest about 36cm and 30cm dabs mostly in healthy condition.
There was a slight lump on the sea but wind was minimal and temperatures hovered around the 2 degrees, almost bikini weather, pegging was left and right. 336 fish were carded for a total length of 8338cm a thoroughly hectic evening enjoyed by all.
Top rod on the night was Russell Taylor with 36 fish for 902cm, second place goes to the currently on form Adrian Bordianu with 33 fish for 883cm, and final podium spot went to the ever consistent Simon Bone who really should learn to fish till the whistle is blown (bad lad). Biggest flat again was shared between Will Sprules & John Catchpole both with a specimen of 30cm, and the biggest round went to Will Sprules with a nice 36cm whiting.
Next match is the 8th of January at Kelling, but many members are fishing throughout the Christmas period so please post up in group if your planning to go somewhere.
January 12th at 7pm is the AGM membership monies will be collected on the night from those who attend. All members should attend this if possible as it is your once a year chance to put proposals forward and select a committee, a raffle will also take place so please bring a bottle etc.
On a personal note I would like to thank everyone for your continued support of the shop and events that the club runs, we really do have a fantastic club, with some excellent anglers who have come along way in the 4 years the club has been going.
Merry Christmas to you all and I hope to see you over the Christmas period and good luck to all the club members traveling down to the Asso two dayer in January see you all there.

Another great turnout for the NAC with 19 anglers assembling for what was expected to be a hectic match, with the recent heavy seas now calming there should be an abundance of fish, we were not disappointed as the results will show.
Pegging was again left and right of the main gate and from the off fish were coming in all along the match stretch, albeit with a mixture of sizable and undersized.
Welcome to new member James Ward Bishop, and nice to see guest anglers like Paul Kendrick making an appearance, remember everyone is welcome to come and fish as a guest and see if you wish to join in the new year.
Anyway on with the results in 3rd place with 18 fish for 7lb 1 1/3oz was Henry Randell on peg 6 who also had a nice whiting at 38cm giving him heaviest round for the night. 2nd place was Ian Childerhouse on peg 18 with 25 fish for 8lb 12oz, but taking top rod honours this week was Adrian Bordianu on peg 17 also with 25 fish for 10lb 10oz. Heaviest flatfish of the night was shared between Kimberley Lawn and Will Sprules with a 30cm dab each.
260 sizeable fish were recorded and returned between 19 of us, not to mention the amount of undersized fish that were also caught and returned, once slack water came most of us were glad of the break of action.
Well done to everyone that fished not a blank card across the match stretch but once again Kelling shows that at this time of year if conditions are right you can expect hectic competition.

19 anglers braced themselves for a chilly night on the sand. With a good sea running we all knew it maybe a struggle to find sizable fish and this was the case. Pegging was to the left of the wall. Although it was tough most manged to card a fish or two. In third place this week with 5 fish for 1lb 10oz was Russell. In second place with 6 fish for 2lb 4oz was Simon. And in top spot this week was Henry with 8 fish for 2lb 12oz2/3. Well done to all those who stuck it out in the cold and hope to see you all next week at Kelling.

17 anglers turned out for the latest adventures of the Norfolk Angling Club, this time it was on the beach at Cley, pegging was left and right of the concrete hut,numbers slightly down due to several members having fished the Eastbourne teams of five finals, we would be fishing to size limits again,and it was a struggle from the off to find the sizeable ones for many, with trebles and doubles of undersized dabs coming in, very frustrating for most.
Little pockets of sizeable fish did come out with the biggest whiting of the night being a couple at 32cm and the biggest dabs were 27cm, the pots for these were divided up between 5, 3 on the dabs and 2 on the whiting.
Running up into 3rd place overall was Luke Childerhouse with 11 fish for 3lb 3oz, second place went to Simon Bone with 13 fish for 3lb 9 1/3oz, but taking top rod this week was Dene Conway with 12 fish for 3lb 15 1/3oz.
Top Junior on the night was Jimmy Shaul winning a couple of quid.
Welcome also a new member Nathan Drewery who also managed to card even though he arrived late , well done mate see you next week.
Next weeks match is at Overstrand please book in asap when the post goes up on Friday.

With a weekend of North Westerly gales, the sea state was fairly rough and as we were due to be on the sand at Mundesley, a quick committee decision to change venue to the shingle proved to be the right choice.
Although Kelling the sea was still rough , on an ebbing tide it should have been easily fish-able, this was the case but some struggled with the waves, the weed was manageable albeit annoying as mixed in with the weed were lashings of razor fish meat, making cleaning it off your line all the more frustrating. With the fish obviously gorging themselves on razor meat, some resorted to tipping off with bits of razor straight off the weed.
As always Kelling proved to be an “If your on them” match, with some good patches and some very poor patches.
16 of us were out tonight, with pegging left and right of the gate, a very slow start compared to last weeks match here, but this can be the norm after a storm on the shingle.
Top rod on the night was Adrian Bordianu using his end peg to great advantage and finishing a country mile ahead of everyone else, with 26 fish for 10lb 5oz, running up in second place with 15 fish was Richard Hipperson with 15 fish for 6lb 4oz, Third place was a draw with Paul Thorburn and Russell Taylor both finding 9 fish for 3lb 8 2/3oz.
Heaviest Flat of the night went to Paul Thorburn with a cracking 30cm Dab and heaviest round fish went to Barry Iseton with a lovely 36cm whiting. In total 114 fish were carded for total weight pts of 2153
Although the fishing was hard at times with waves and weed causing problems, but these conditions can test your skills and can make you a better angler so well done to all who stuck it out.
Next weeks match is at Cley, please book in asap.

A special night for the club, with the Joc Goudie Matchmans cup being up for grabs for the first time, 23 anglers graced the shores at kelling with the pegging left and right of the car park but not stretching as far as the wreck to make it as fair as possible for everyone, a minutes silence was held in memory of Joc at the beginning of the match.
This match would be competitive from the off, we just needed the fish to play ball, and we were not disappointed.
Doubles and trebles of good sizes whiting and dabs, along with the odd pouting made for a very enjoyable match with numbers caught and points by the end looking as if we had fished a five hour match to 18cm rather than 3 and a half to size limits.
Down the lower numbers looked like it would be a fiercely fought battle with Simon Bone on Peg 1 , Leon Smith on peg 2, Dene Conway on peg 3 and Russell Taylor on peg 4 all capable of switching up a gear if the fish are there, this battle played out right up until the end and 2 or 3 fish separated them all, other good battles were emerging along the match stretch with Adrian Bordianu peg 13 , Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse peg 14 and Richard Hipperson peg 12, and the last few pegs were Henry Randell peg 20, Matt Lawes peg 21, Roger Cunnington peg 22 and end peg for Gregory Kiddell, to be fair everyone on the beach had their own battles with members next to them which made for a great match and as usual plenty of banter.
New members tonight were Kieth and Jimmy Shaul (junior) who both managed to card and enjoyed themselves, welcome to the NAC lads.
Anyway onto the top rods of the night, in 3rd place was Dene Conway with 24 fish for 9lb 2oz, 2nd place went to Henry Randell with 25 fish for 9lb 6 1/3oz, but in top spot was Simon Bone with 26 fish for 9lb 14 2/3oz , this clearly shows how one fish can make a difference and battling on to the very end can change your fortunes in any match.
Heaviest round fish on the night was shared between Russell Taylor and Ian Lambert both with cracking whiting of 38cm, and the heaviest flat was shared between 3 , Dene Conway, Dave Mathers and Kieth Shaul all having a 30cm dab each.
380 sizeable fish were carded with a total weight of 142lb 5 1/3oz
Next weeks match is at Mundesley hope to see you all there and maybe an elusive codling or late bass with show.

17 anglers assembled in Red house car park, pegging would be to the right of the last revetment, with a fair swell running the fear was would the weed be a pain. Our fears were proved correct with lumps of red weed dragging you round and for some dragging you into the groins. The whole match proved to be hard work with very few sizeable fish being carded, top rod on the day was Russell Taylor who secured victory with a sizeable bass and two whiting, narrowly beating Leon Smith by 1/3oz , 3rd place went to Simon Bone floundering about and sneaking in a nice 31cm flounder which also gave him heaviest flat, heaviest round went to Russell Taylor with his 36cm bass.
Out of the 17 who fished only 6 managed to find some sizeable fish so all in all a bad night at the office, next weeks match is the Joc Goudie Match mans Cup at Kelling, hope to see you all there.

Due to favorable tide times it was decided to change venue from weybourne to heacham to give the boys who normally travel an hour or more on a Monday night a chance for an early night.
12 arrived on a beach that had no water on it but we was assured it would arrive in time for the start of the match and sure enough come 7pm it arrived unfortunately it didn’t bring any fish with it as most of us hadn’t carded for the first 2 hours.
High tide was around 9.30 and it was around that time when news filtered down the beach that the fish were now starting to make an appearance but not in numbers, the odd flounder and the usual eels.
It was John Catchpole who managed to find the most fish carding 3 fish for 1lb 10oz but unfortunately only got him into 2nd spot as this weeks winner was the other half of the childerhouse duo Ian who managed top spot with 2 fish for 1lb 13 1/3oz, 3rd place went to Dave Mathers with 2 fish for 1lb 2/3oz
Ian also had biggest flat, a 35cm flounder and Will Sprules picked up biggest round with a 47cm Eel.
NAC on tour, showing off our winnings, tough fishing yesterday, good couple of days though with good lads… SAMF GB Masters Skegness 2017
