Match Fishing - Seniors
The match calenders for 2019 and 2020 can be opened using the link in the side bar.
Once again we will have a pre-season warm up match at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries. This will be held on the 30th March on Lake 3.
All members are welcome to fish the matches. The matches are not taken too seriously and take place in a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of banter and fun!!
The first match of the season is the Work Party Trophy. Although the match is open to all members, only those who have attended a work party can actually win the trophy and acquire points for the league. Work party dates will be announced in the near future in the News section.
We now have six away matches planned in 2019 at some fantastic venues, all within an hours drive away. To book on a match please contact the Senior Match Secretary - Eddy Hegarty. Book on early to avoid disappointment!
Firstly we have the Work party Trophy at Orcheton House Fishery in Wigan. This is a fishery that the club have not fished before. This is an open water giving everyone the opportunity to use rods and pole. It is a mixed fishery but with the main target being carp and F1's. 100lb plus nets are on the cards!
Once again, by popular request, we will return to Moss Farm Fisheries in Irlam which we have fished for the last few years. Again we will fish Madisons lake.
We then have Lake 3 at Bradshaws, which we are familiar with from last few years.
We will then return to Whitmore Fisheries to fish East Lake. We last fished this in 2017. This is the water in front of the cafe and holds large carp and huge barbel.
For our final match of the summer league we will return to Partridge Lakes in Culcheth to fish Covey 5. This is one of their regular match waters, again which we have fished in 2019 and usually throws up big weights comprising of carp, F1's and ide.
For the second time we are introducing an away match for the winter league. This will be held on Bradshaws Lake 4, again which we are familiar with from last year.
Again, please book on this with Eddy to secure your place but at a push we can take up to 18.
All of these fisheries have great facilities including cafe and bait shop (apart from Hall Lane). More information on these venues can be found using the links in the side bar.
Once again we have arranged a ’home and away’ challenge match against Rochdale Walton Angling Society for 2019. These matches will take place at Healey Dell on the 30th June and Lane Head on the 14th July. The top 8 anglers on points in the Championship just prior to the match will qualify to fish.
