We’re pleased to announce some dates for matches for the rest of the season, including the Predator Pairs open. They are:
Things won’t be quite the same. We’ve reduced the pairs league from five rounds to four because of the time we’ve lost. The matchplay won’t take place this year but we’ve fitted in an individual match in November, and this will be the qualifier for next year’s matchplay, which will start in spring.
We’ll be sticking to the Angling Trust guidelines on lure matches. More details on exactly how it will work will be posted when booking opens.
Look forward to seeing you all on the bank again soon.
Fishing will resume on LACC Waters on Wednesday 13th May, with some restrictions in place:
Everyone fishing MUST be a member or have bought a day ticket online before fishing.
DO NOT fish on narrow sections of towpath where social distancing from others using the towpath would be difficult.
DO NOT fish near moored boat.
All Angling Trust guidelines on fishing should also be adhered to. See Below.
All fishing on LACC waters was suspended on March 25th 2020. No angling should take place on any of our waters until restrictions have been lifted by the government. A full version of this message is available in several languages below.
Small perch dominated the winning catch returns in round 1 of this year’s pairs league at Knowle.
The venue traditionally produces a match dominated by small perch. However, this year the shoals were concentrated in a few small areas and were hard to find in numbers.
No Wasps Here of Steve Wilson and Derek Holmes ran out winners with 438cms after landing on the biggest shoal of the day. Team No Name of Vidar Thomassen and Alan Brown plundered the same shoal and found five ruffe to run in second with 363cm. Team Lure Tour of John Cheyne and Gary Palmer were third with an all-perch catch of 257cm.
Some decent zander also came to the net toppoed by a 61cm fish for Tomek Cichowska of Realistic Shad. Best perch went to Gyorgy Brachna with a 35cm fish.
And a final mention has to go to the capture of two gudgeon, one for Alan Brown and one for Piotr Sroka.
Thanks to the 15 teams that fished yesterday’s match.
It’s time to set out on the road of wresting the LACC pairs league trophy from the hands of Vidar Thomassen and Alan Brown.
Round 1 of the 2020 pairs league on 14 March at Knowle is open for booking.
It’s traditionally a perchfest – both big and small – with plenty of zander and the odd pike showing up too.
We meet at the King’s Arms near bridge 70 at 8.15am and fish up to bridge 72 Kixley Lane. All members are welcome but please book your places ahead.
The water will be closed for practising from March 6.
Please park on the grassed overflow car park at the back of the pub where possible.
The pub doesn’t open to the public for breakfast until 9.30am. However, breakfast will be available before the match for anyone that prebooks it.
Please message the LACC or Derek on Facebook at least 48 hours before the match if you would like to be booked in.
