2016 - GREENHILL ANGLING CLUB sponsored by Midlands Angling Supplies - Ashpole , Cosby 15th May

Had not been out pole fishing since the WAC match on the GUC Glen Parva for the Ivan Marks memorial match . Decided to meet up with MAS anglers John Kilby and Andy Porter for a mornings fishing. The morning was cold which has been fairly typical in recent weeks however the sun was promised and it did deliver. The late afternoon brought more cloud cover and the fishing was better.

Peg 26 was my choice as i have experienced some great weights on a 100b from the peg before.

Sunday lunch for the fishes

I started to catch small roach/rudd from the off and loads of Perch but the constant changing sun in and out kept the fish wanting to not feed.

The days finest fish amounted to 4 Chub and 5 Tench which amounted to about 20lb+ with the silvers it got close to 25lb. Not a brilliant catch by Ashpole standards but its getting there , we just need consistent warm weather .

Two chublettes

 Tinca tincas

 The big one must have been close to 5lb

Quality Roach to 1lb

Caught at all depths to amass a reasonable weight can only get better !
