News - December 2018
Joe's Prospect had a hard match on New Barlows on November 18th, with Bob Johnson winning with two fish for 11lb, with Tony Scott's single 9lb carp enough for second place. Stacey's Match Group had a slightly better match there on December 9th, with a top weight of 40lb by Matt Butler, although there were a number of blanks and weights less than a pound. It's amazing how the large number of both small and large fish caught in the Summer can just disappear as soon as Winter comes.
Joe's Prospect also fished Whitehouse on November 25th, with Andy Ivens coming out on top with 54lb, well clear of Mick Palk's 16lb and Roy Beales' 11lb.
Keith is currently setting up a WhatsApp group for Stacey's Fishing Club members. Initial trials have now started.
Stacey's Charity Events
The Charity Match fished on August 12th 2018 was again a big success, with over £1,500 raised on the day for St Michael's Hospice. Some of the participants are pictured below enjoying a post-match hotdog, burger and drink.
Next year's main Charity event will be fished across all lakes on Sunday August 111h 2019.
Diamond Quality Care Services
....... are a group that supports the rehabilitation of people who have suffered serious head injuries. They are being allowed to fish Stacey's waters on Tuesdays through the summer, and are looking for volunteers to help out on the day. Again, if you would like to help or can provide some fishing tackle, please contact Keith Brown.
