MAY YOU ALL HAVE A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.
RODS and REELS.
The match this was an open match, and fished on the Rio Segura at Eden canal.
It was transferred from Benijofar as the river had overflowed it´s bank there.
Again, the weather playing a major influence as to where we fish.
The day in itself wasn´t bad, temperatures up to 20 degrees.
However come 1 o´clock the wind got up and caused some damage like, 3 people had their poles broken.
Along with that, Bill ( I can´t get up ) Botting, who brought Jim ( The Chairman ),
arrived some 1 hour late. Both started fishing and Jim on a good peg,
caught one of the local animals that are resident in this stretch and after managing to steer
it clear of the weeds and snags went for his landing net, to find the wind had blown it into the river.
Undeterred he guided it to the bank to hand net it, only to find in the last moment a quick
swish of the tail, and it was gone.
Jim has since written to Father Christmas and asked for a landing net with a magnetic handle,
so it will stay firmly attached to his box !!!.
Winners on the day.
1st Stan ( The Man ) Roberts fishing the pole using maggot for 6.080 kilo´s.
2nd Paul ( Poco Loco ) Baxter same method with 4.400 kilo´s.
3rd John ( aka Johnny M ) Marsh same method with 2.700 kilo´s.
Anglers Together continues to grow as a club with firm friendships being formed over the last 2/3 years.
Many members fish regularly and report they are pleased to rejoin a sport they followed in their youth.
We have the occasional organized outing but the aim mainly is to introduce members to find fishing companions, and to assist in finding the venues.
The joining fee is €10 for new members and €5 for renewing members.
If you are interested in joining or finding out more about Anglers Together,
then either come along to one of the meetings or contact Alan below.
SHORE and BOAT FISHING.
A few members spent each week during November/December fishing off the beaches around Mazarron
without catching anything to talk about.
They used bread as the bait and would have expected to catch good size Mullet at this time of year,
but that was not to be.
Boat fishing at the start of November was good with several fish caught from Dolphin fish to Trigger and Bass, all large enough for the dinner table.
However, at the end of November the fishing was poor with a couple of small rock fish caught.
That time of year has normally been good fishing for both boat and beach so we can only continue
each week and see what happens.
No meetings will be held in January. Next meetings are February 5th and 6th - further details coming.
