2014 - June 20th Ashpole Spinney - Ian Chadburn gives it a go

          Saturday the 20th and Midlands Angling Supplies Ltd Northern manager Ian Chadburn came down to the Midlands to have a session on the Greenhill AC Ashpole Spinney water . The purpose of this was to see what he could extract from this difficult water which has a huge weed problem like so many other waters. The clubs committee and helpers have toiled endlessley to maintain the weeds growth and just when you think you have won the battle it returns so quickly. it looks like the clearance clans of GAC will be up in arms soon attacking the problem yet again.
        Ian chose peg 25 for his session and could reach the island with 16m , he also had a 9m and 6m line. Maggots / casters / feeding hemp and also some ground bait that kick started his peg. He started off taking small Perch then he took a few roach/rudd and small Tench until he settled on the 6m and margin lines where he took a handsome 10lb carp and a amount of Tench to 2.5 lb .

These Tench were tough to take out with so many weed banks it was hard to steer them away.

Dam ! lost it !

 Ian soon got into the swing and started to measure the fish by getting his elastic tighter giving the fish less manoeuvre .

After sticking in the weed the Tench was extracted.

 The days top fish
