Season 2019 Round up
Guys and Girls.
As my season has closed, it is time to take stock. My season started in March with my first trip to Wintons.
A low sixty gracing the bank on an overnight session.
April saw our first fish-in of the year at Wintons, myself and great friend Dan Tully fished on Heron lake to allow more members to participate. Sadly the fish didn’t play ball, though we did have a laugh when Rob Shickle set off one of Dan’s alarms, during Dan and Beccy’s fab barbecue. Probably the fastest a lot of people have seen us move !
May came along, and later in the month saw another Fish-in at Par fishery in Essex, big thanks go to Rob Shickle for organising the pegs etc. As I couldn’t make the Friday, a good few cats came out, unfortunately none of the big girls.
I have posted blogs regarding these events previously, so feel free to take a look to see full details.
June came around and once again Dan Tully and I fished Catfishing against Cancer at Furnace lakes. Fellow rep Ryan Dennison and his brother Scott also attended, however due to Ryan’s shoulder issue, he was unable to fish.
Unluckily we drew Kiln lake, which holds the smaller cats, however it is for charity and we had great fun, including me telling Dan, that the cats come in close at night, and dropping a livey in the margin and having this one on the first night.
sadly this devastating tactic failed for the rest of the session 😀 Whilst Dan seemed to get a run every time I wandered to his swim !
Good times, and lots of money raised for a great charity.
I also had a fun session at Wintons in peg seven on Mallard, the night was quiet but at first light it all kicked off, with me hitting four fish in the space of an hour, two spat the hook, but I landed these two mid fifties.
July passed quietly due to limited fishing time and a holiday in my Northern homeland.
Onto August and time for myself, Andy Jenkins, and Dan to cross the bridge into the Principality.
Dan has already posted a great blog about this, so I shall just let the pictures do the talking 😀

I also had another trip to Wintons and managed to bag a new PB at eighty pounds on the nose from peg three.
A target achieved, onwards to bigger and better. I hope..
September concluded with our final fish-in of the year at Wintons, another great event, seeing some PBs broken, again I have previously posted a blog regarding this one, so feel free to take a peek.
In conclusion, on a personal level I have thoroughly enjoyed my season, spending bank time with friends old and new and catching the odd fish.
From a WCC standpoint another great season with the group hitting over seven thousand members, and a big thanks goes to all who take time to contribute.
Roll on Spring 2020 when we can do it all again !
Tight lines all.
