Match News

As you may or may not no I am no match angler. No reason in particular really I have just never really fancied it that much. I have however participated in one charity fishing match. That I was EXTRAORDINARILY shit at, in a pairs match over 30 hours, I caught a grand total of zero fish. I did, however, drink loads of Old Thumper’s, and I also got some hilarious footage of my team mate dressed in an Alan Sugar disguise pretending to masturbate; so swings and roundabouts really.

This year I will be entering 2 matches, completely out of the blue. The first match has been organised by the Carp Crusaders in memoriam of David Moss. David Moss was sadly lost to us when he was taken ill and drowned during a fishing session.  Whilst I did not personally know Mossy, as he was affectionately known, I have entered the match as it will be a great way of raising money for Mossy’s family and it will be a good bloody fishing knees up in memory of David. This match will be taking place at Moreton Fisheries in Congleton shown below.

The second match I will be competing in will be the Back Of The Landing net spring match. This is the real grudge match after blanking in the Summer Charity Match, with my old fishing buddy Jack Greener, I am going to try my best to win the match. My strategy is to put a hook in some bait, then put this bait in the water then if the rod moves lift it up and catch a fish. I aim to do this about 60 times and this should win me the match. This match is being held at Todber Manor Fisheries in Darrrset on the runs water Wadmill. Despite being coined as a runs water there is some monster carp and pike in the lake and who knows what will happen. Actually, I do know what will probably happen, I won’t catch any fish and the other boys will laugh at me again 😦
