4th annual Norfolk Sea Angling Festival

The  4th annual Norfolk Sea Angling Festival took place on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of April, along the coastline of North Norfolk, boundaries were from Cromer Pier to Cley, with 39 anglers competing to catch the single heaviest fish each day, and then combining their daily weights for the two day overall position and a chance to win the top prize of £500 (subject to entries).

Other prizes on the table this year were the heaviest flatfish over the two days and the heaviest single bass which was a catch and release conversion due to current EU laws. 4 juniors and 4 ladies also competed for separate prizes, and with prizes down to 10th place everyone has a chance in this fun family event ran by the Norfolk Angling Club. Sponsorship and Support this year was again from Colmic UK and Rite Gear Angling Centre, so a big thank you to Shaun Stockley and Adam Nurse from Colmic UK.

With spring finally in the air and the last few weeks throwing up some decent codling, bass and dogfish expectations were running high and maybe this year as with 4 years ago some spring codling would make a welcome appearance.

Onto day one we were greeted by a lovely sunny day , light winds and perfect spring conditions, as anglers began returning with fish rumor control had already been rife with talk of a 3lb plus codling being caught by Gary Medlar this turned out to be a nice fish at 41cm but a tad short of the rumors, Helen Molloy had caught a nice dogfish on her first cast and this rumor proved to be correct much to the disdain of her young England international son Adam Molloy who apparently now must wear a wig for the next teams of five match, as usual within our area there is always plenty of banter, with some good friendly rivalry.

Sadly only 18 anglers managed to find a sizable round fish on day one and that included 3 of the 4 juniors, and 2 out of the 4 ladies, showing the men how it’s done, the biggest fish of the day was Helen Molloy with a cracking dogfish of 1.005kg.

Onto the second day and its all to play for those that blanked knew they had to find a sizeable fish to card if they had a chance of getting in the top ten, and the pressure was also on for those who carded on day one as they needed to add to their weight on day two, decisions needed to be made whether to try for the top ten or try for the flatfish or bass prize, or as many would do just go all out for a big fish.

Top fish on the day was Chris Clare with a lovely codling of 1.435kg, and reports filtered in that a sizeable bass had been caught by junior angler Curtis Taylor with a cracker at 45cm, measured, photographed and returned, it was turning out to be lads beating dads as Chris had also beaten his dad Chuff Clare over the weekend, Curtis beating his father Russell Taylor, Fynn Betts also beating his dad Darren Betts, so well done to all.

A big well done to all competitors who brought fish back to the scales, as the care given to these fish with regular changing of water throughout the match meant that more than 60% of the fish caught were in fact returned alive and those that didn’t make went to local families and business owners for free.

Onto the final combined results from each day, we started the presentation with the Juniors, as always we try to make sure all get a prize and this year was no exception, 4th place went to Adam Molloy, 3rd place to Keiron Edwards 2nd place to Curtis Taylor and Top Junior of the weekend and in his first competition was Fynn Betts, well done to all of you.

The Ladies were next to take the stage with Ros Stanley taking 4th place, Nicole Conway 3rd place Stephanie Erison 2nd place and top lady of the weekend was Helen Molloy.

Biggest Bass of the weekend went to junior rod Curtis Taylor with a 45cm specimen

And biggest flat was a 33cm flounder for Michael Gill

Onto the overall winners Gary Medlar managed to add to his day one weight with a nice dogfish giving him a combined weight of 1.555kg taking 3rd place overall , Ian Nelson also in the frame last year managed a dog fish on both days and took 2nd place overall with a weight of 1.585kg and taking top spot this year and the new Norfolk Angling Festival Champion 2018 was Ian Childerhouse again managing to card both days for a total weight of 1.690kg.

Full results are listed below.
Let’s hope next year’s event is even bigger and better once again thank you to everyone who supported the event, including all competitors and all sponsors.

NAC Report 6th Feb 2017 Mundesley

First match of the new season , saw a great turnout of 24 anglers with two new members , Dave Hall and Roger Cunnington a big welcome to both of them. The match stretch was left and right of the slipway at Mundesley, and with flat calm conditions we were expecting it to be tough. We could not have predicted how tough it would be, only 6 anglers managed to find sizeable fish.

Top spot and his first ever match was Dave Hall who was coached and assisted for the evening by one of our novice development officers Richard Hipperson, this paid off for him with a nice 32cm flounder for 13 1/3oz sadly his only fish but enough to take the top spot. Second place went to league runner up Leon Smith also with one flounder at 31cm for 12oz, and third place went to Russell Taylor who managed to winkle out 3 rockling for 11 2/3oz.Adrian Bordianu was in 4th place with 2 fish for 9 1/3oz one a whiting of 29cm. 5th place went to Dene Conway who sneaked a flounder out on his last cast of 26cm for 6oz and finally in 6th place was Iain Molloy with a solitary rockling for 1 2/3oz.

A disappointing night for the majority, but that’s fishing, heaviest flat on the night picking up £12 was Dave Hall and Heaviest round was Adrian Bordianu also picking up £12.

Next weeks match is at Cley, please book in asap especially with you bait orders.

NAC Report 30th January Kelling

NAC Report Kelling 30th Jan 2017
The final match of the winter season, which runs from September to end of January, and it is so close at the top anyone of about 6 people could take top spot honours after lowest match deductions, so it was all to play for and with another excellent turnout of 19 fishing and the pegging being left and right of the carpark, who would come out on top.

As we all know Kelling can produce fish in numbers but we also know that if you’re on a bad patch there is nothing you can do but hope that as the tide changes you may well start to find the fish. The evening was nice and calm with a slight swell rolling in, hardly any wind and no rain, weed was minimal a slight patch now and again on the leader knot but nothing to make it unfishable, the tide pull was strong and from the off the fish were on the feed, especially the pin whiting and undersized dabs.

A couple of new members again tonight with Matt Lawes making a welcome return and Ciprian A a warm welcome to you both.
On with the match and the night produced some great battles between individuals in contention but it was Simon Bone who took top rod honours for the 2nd week in a row with 17 fish for 6lb 4 1/3oz, Dave Mathers showing he hasn’t lost the touch took 2nd place with 13 fish for 4lb 13oz and the ever-consistent Leon Smith also with 13 fish for 4lb 9 1/3oz.

An excellent match for the last one of the season with 146 sizeable fish caught and returned for a total of 53lb, next week’s new start summer season will be at Mundesley, please book in early as this helps us get everything ready on Saturday morning.
Results of final standings will be posted up asap once deductions have been worked out.

NAC Report 23rd January Bacton

MATCH REPORT BACTON 23/1/17
A low turnout for this match no doubt partly due to freezing temperatures on a venue not known to be prolific in winter. It was decided to turn the match into a rover but everyone stayed fairly close together in any case.
Fishing was hard with Dabs being the main prize as most whiting turning up were very small (having decided to keep size limits for whiting, bass and that bearded fish I can’t remember the name of, think it begins with a C..!). Kim Lawn did add a touch of variety with an 18cm Coalfish, something much more common in the North-East but a rare shore catch in Norfolk.
Top angler on the night was Simon Bone with 5 Dabs for 105 points, Will Sprules second with 3 fish for 79 points and Adrian Bordianu third with 3 fish for 65 points.
The flat calm conditions clearly didn’t help fishing and from what I gather online this area is greatly affected by longshore drift so it may well be the beach has shallowed (or at least larger sandbanks) following recent tidal surges?
Anyway tough fishing but always good to experience different types of match and I’m sure we all agree and arguably we learn more scratching than when the fish are in numbers.
Placings are as follows;
Simon Bone 30pts
Will Sprules 29pts
Adrian Bordianu 28pts
Ian Childerhouse 27pts
Ben Nicholson 26pts
Gary Moore 25pts
Leon Smith 24pts
Luke Childerhouse 23pts
Dean Gibson 22pts
Kim Lawn 21pts

Paul Rickard 5pts
Billy Rush 5pts
Russel Taylor 5pts
(other names are crossed off scorecard but anyone else I’ve missed for 5pts just let me know 🙂

NAC Report 16th January Kelling

NAC Report the Tidal Surge Aftermath – Kelling

With many venues, out of bounds or cut off, our only option this week was to move to the haven of Kelling yet again, the storm surge that came through our region on Friday caused a lot of flooding including the coast road, cutting off venues and generally damaging access to others, Sheringham was our planned venue but too much damage had occurred to the promenade so no access signs were in place. Undeterred the committee quickly announced and informed all members of the switch.

With everyone assembled at the gates of the Muckleborough collection, our concern now was how much debris, weed and grass would be swirling around along the match stretch, would it be unfishable, or would we be in for a brilliant match.

Pegging tonight was to the right of the carpark spreading out towards the wreck, and 17 club members spread out along the now flat shingle bank, after the last tidal surge of 2013 the sea and beach seemed to be like a bowl with water in it sloshing back and forth and no structure to the wave or swell format, tonight was no exception and many of us thought the odd rogue waves may push up and cause havoc, but luckily we were all positioned just out of reach of the slight swell.

From the off it was clear NO WEED or very little, so now all we needed to find out was if the fish were ready to feed or had indeed feasted over the last few days of rough seas.

Welcome back to Robert Durrant who has had way to much work on to fish of late, also Chris Orders and new to club but not so new to angling Paul Thorburn.

Again, the shingle lived up to its reputation of being one of the hardest apprentices in match angling to master, as fish were coming out in all sizes, to all manner of bait and at all distances, some were plagued by mini dabs and mini whiting while others were straight into sizeable fish, some only managing to card a few fish in the last hour or so.

A brilliant match with plenty of action for the majority with 152 sizeable fish being caught and returned for a grand total of 55lb 2 1/3oz, so well done to all.

Top rod on the night and his second win was Ben Nicholson with 17 fish for 6lb 6 2/3oz, second place went to Will Sprules with 15 fish for 5lb 5 1/3oz, and final podium spot went to Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse with 13 fish for 5lb 2 1/3oz

The “Fine Master” has now begun his reign of terror, Charlie will be posting up those who were fined and for what misdemeanor, remember this is a bit of fun and banter, no one will be fined more than 25p per fine to a maximum of £1 per week , some will escape a fine and not everyone will be targetted each week , unless your “the coach” then its a given…
.
Next week’s match is Bacton, please book in early especially with bait orders, meet at Red House Caravan Park if in doubt meet at shop and follow one of us down.
