7th October 2017 - Presentation Night
 
Last night we held what was our final Presentation Night. This event has taken place every year since 1989, sadly due to the demise of Junior members, it was decided that this will be the last. Not to be downhearted, everyone had a great evening, the usual fishing banter doing the rounds. We would especially like to thank Wayne, Landlord at The Hoop & Mallet pub, for stepping up at short notice to offer the pub for this evening. Our previous hosts decided to close down without notice! Too many thank you's to do, but we must thank our sponsors over the years who have supported us, in particular our Juniors, they are Tommy Horan, Paul Brittlebank, Mike Towney and Wayne @ the Hoop & Mallet. To all the Juniors and parents/grandparents who have supported the kids across the years, some now Seniors and still fishing with us. What the future holds, we don't know, but one sure fact is the club remains and we hope will continue for many years to come. One thank you we forgot, Phil Morris (Sue Nicholson), for providing a buffet for tonight's bash. To Roley aka Paul Rowlands who as ever was our master of ceremonies for the prize giving, done the only way Roley knows how, with humour!
Have added photo gallery to website as well as on our Facebook page.

We hope you like them, see you all soon on a match - Tightlines
 
Presentation Night 2017
 
1st October 2017 - 2017/18 Club Licence
 
As we have the previous couple of years.
From today, 1st October until the end of the current licence period (15/03/18), we have reduced the price of our club licences by up to 50%.
So if you haven't got a club licence and fancy some Autumn/Winter fishing on our pools, now is a good time to get one.
Go to our shop page where you can make your purchase, or purchase on behalf of a family member or friend. We don't charge for postage, just the cost of the licence, which from today is Adults £8, OAP £5 and Juniors £3.
Grab yourself a bargain.

29th September 2017 - Presentation Night 2017
   

As mentioned yesterday on our Facebook page.Due to circumstances beyond our control, our annual prize night which is being held next Friday 6th October has had to be relocated to The Hoop & Mallet Pub, Callands Road, Warrington. WA5 9RJ.
We are very grateful to Wayne and the staff at the Hoop for allowing us the use of their pub at such short notice.
That said, you will appreciate there is limited space available and will be on a first come first served basis.
Due to the change of venue our 'usual' evenings entertainment won't be happening, however the important bit of presenting trophies and the presenting by Roley (Paul Rowlands) will happen.
We suggest members/families arrive for 7.30am, as we will start presentation at 8.00pm.
Whilst we don't have a buffet, we will be having Pizza served at approximately 9.00pm.
The event is free to enter, we look forward to seeing you and apologies once again for the hasty change of venue which, as mentioned, is beyond our club's control.

Venue Change
   
28th September 2017 - Midweek League 2018
   
Notice to members who fish our Midweek matches.
In 2018 we are changing the meeting/match time which we hope will help alleviate the issue of facing rush hour traffic and make travelling to matches a little less stressful.
From 2018 meeting time at venue will be 9.00am, draw at 9.30am and match fishes 11.00am - 4.00pm (subject to match referee's decision).
You will see from the news item below, majority of 2017/18 matches are booked, with a few midweek ones to be confirmed. Keep an eye on our website for updates.
   
28th September 2017 - Senior Matches 2017-18
   
At long last we can confirm our Senior matches for the forthcoming 2017/18 season.
Majority of venues based upon members votes at our December and June club meetings.
Hopefully all of our match members are in agreement with us in that we have some great venues booked and something for everyone.
As ever we have three fantastic coach trips, something very few clubs do.
We are still finalising venues and dates for our Midweek League, once we have them, we will update our website and of course our followers on our Facebook pages.

Here's to another great season!

Only a couple of days to go and it's our third and final Spring League match.
A new venue for us and an alternate day! Lingmere on Sunday 14th May.
For members fishing this match it's pretty easy to get to, I typed in postcode and my satnav took me right to the entrance.
Shortest route takes you via Kingsway tunnel in Liverpool, so gonna cost you £1.70 each way in a car.
Also as Frank and I (Paul) will not be attending, Alan Lamb and James Bryan are running the match. We would appreciate if ALL MEMBERS show respect and give the lads chance to get sorted, this is pretty much a first for them, so your understanding is appreciated. Of course, make sure you are there for 8.00am, food and bait available, any queries, contact the fishery 0151 677 7911 or 07766 651817.
Final note - This match is fully subscribed, so if you are not already booked on, apologies but no room for additional anglers, sorry.

Good afternoon anglers/members.
It can't have escaped your notice that we are only a week away from the start of our 2017 Spring League.

If you have paid a bond, or are paying monthly and you can't make the match, let us know Wednesday prior to match date
If late notice, tell us before the 8.00am on matchday either phone/text etc as soon as you can (not whilst driving).Failing to attend or being late without prior notification may mean you forfeit £10 match fee. Your support on this matter is appreciated. Our contact details are in licence and here on website.

Dogs Bollocks Anglers - March 2017
 

Last Saturday 18th March saw 48 anglers from four clubs compete for our Dogs Bollocks trophy which has become a fixture in the calendar with this being the fourth year it has been run.
It was a tough day weatherwise which made fishing even more difficult.
All anglers stuck it out with only one DNW, so well done to everyone who fished with great spirit.
After five hours of windbashing we are pleased to say that our POHAS team won the match by several points, for a second year in a row. Thanks to Richmonds, Poplars and Marketgate for making it a great match.

Thanks to our team who were (in no particular order):-

Alan Lamb (Jt Capt), James Bryan (Jt Capt), Mark Davies, John Osborne, Mark Bibby, Leon Charnock, John Bryan, Adam Hill, Rob Healey, Dave Newton, Mick Astbury and Dave Hunt. Also to Mike Roylance who was substitute, but wasn't required, appreciate you coming down Michael.

Dot with husband John and Daughter Helen, ran Cheshire Angling in Latchford for several years and was well known in the local fishing community.
We would like to send our deepest sympathies to John, Helen and family at this sad time.

Dot's funeral is to be held at Walton Lea Crematorium on Friday 3rd February 2017 at 12.20pm, and afterwards at Woolston Legion on Manchester Road, Warrington.

Family flowers only, any donations to be made to Diabetes UK.

16th January 2017 - Winter Matches 2017
   

Winter matches for 2017 are all booked. I know we have only just finished Winter 2016, but have to be ahead of the game, so see dates/venues below:-

30th September - Lindholme Lakes - Loco Lake
15th October (Sunday) - Lingmere - Match Lake
21st October - Fir Tree - Fir Water
4th November - Hall Lane - Merlins Pool
2nd December - Partridge Lakes - Covey 6

Observant readers may notice the first match in Winter League is Lindholme Lakes - Yes folks, we are doing a Winter coach trip!
At the moment this is a one off event and a thank you from the club to our match anglers who support us. Even better news, this coach trip is only a tenner! Yes, you read it right a tenner, and this is a one off, so put a note in your diary for this match.
In this instance, and only this instance, if any member wants to fish the match but travel in their own car (Dunno why you would for a tenner) you can.
Being repetitive I know, but the tenner cost and use of own car if you choose, applies to this Winter coach trip only, and NOT our regular Summer trips.

15th January 2017 - In Memory of Jim Morris - 1936 - 2017
   

RIP to friend and former club member Jim Morris who sadly passed away earlier today.
Jim was a great character,
born in Warrington and came fishing with his lads Paul and Phil and Phil's partner Sue.
He loved a sing song, and was more than happy to give us his rendition of 'Mack the Knife'.
RIP Jim, thinking of you and your family, Jane, Phil, Paul, partners and grandchildren at this sad time, but we had some laughs and that's what we will always remember.

Tightlines old friend.
