31st December 2012 - Happy New Year!
   
Hard to believe but another year is almost over and from a club point of view another great year having fished with some good mates at good fisheries, the membership is healthy our Juniors are doing well and we have renovated our Brownlee's Pool for the benefit of all of our members which will last for many years to come.
2013 is going to be another great year and is our club's 30th Anniversary year with we hope some suprises in store and events to commemorate our 30 years as an angling club.
It only remains for us to say to all of our members and families, stay safe and have a very prosperous and happy 2013, we will see you again in the new year.
Happy New Year!
   
21st December 2012 - Merry Christmas
   
Before everyone bowls headlong into the Christmas festivities, we thought it time to wish all our members, their families and all the people that support us, from our local pub, fisheries and their managers, tackle shops. Whoever you may be thank you for your support in 2012, may we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Look forward to seeing you in 2013. Merry Christmas
   
21st December 2012 - Morrison's Bag Pack
 

Junior and Senior members gathered at our local Morrison's Store yesterday evening to conduct what has become our annual bag pack. All the money raised from this event goes towards our Junior Development Fund which is used solely for our Junior members and helps us to continue providing free matches to encourage more Junior members from our local community to take up fishing and also goes towards funding free tackle and equipment we give out to our Junior members at our annual prize night which takes place every October.
As usual we bag packed from 5pm until 8pm last night and raised a total of £266.40 which is excellent in such a short space of time and given that people in general have less disposable income.
We would like to thank Morrison's for allowing us to do the bag pack in particular Store Manager Mark Roberts, checkour supervisors Steph and Liz and all the checkout staff, of course the Morrison's customers who gave so generously and our members who gave up their evening on what was a diabolical night weather wise with heavy rain. Our members in no particular order were Frank Davies, Paul and James Bryan, Ken Whibley, Joe and Ollie Maddock, Matt Sutch, Kieran and Leon Charnock, Alex Donaldson, and Ed and Jordan Mahoney. Thanks also to parents for ferrying the Juniors back and to the store.
Thank you all very much on behalf of all of our Junior members.

11th November 2012 - Happy Birthday Chairman
   

It's been a bit of a hectic weekend for our Club Chairman Frank Davies.
He retired on Friday, he's in the process of having three parties incorporating his 65th Birthday which actually is tomorrow.
No signs of slowing up then!
Last night Frank along with several members of the club celebrated in our local pub The Maltings.
You can see to the right Frank reading a card signed by many members of the club along with a gift of £100 of vouchers for him to spend on whatever he chooses.
It's fair to say for once, Frank was lost for words, and those that know him will realise that doesn't happen very often.
All the best Frank from everyone in POHAS we hope you and Angela enjoy a long and happy retirement.

If you click on the photo alongside, you can see a gallery of photo's from the evening.

9th November 2012 - Construction 'still' continues
 
Brownlee's Decking Construction Brownlees Decking Construction
A bit boggy underfoot, but getting there - 09/11/12 Clearing the spoil - 09/11/12
 
Work is still progressing although not finished due to the weather, or more particularly the rain. Construction will continue next week with the surfaces being finished and compacted and surrounding landscape being tidied up.
 
9th November 2012 - Matchman League
 
Just to advise members that the above league has had the scoring revised.
Due to the fact that Winter League matches this year are split scores, ie, effectively two matches with two 1st's, two 2nd's etc in each match, we had applied same points to Matchman as we have on Winter League, this is incorrect. The matchman is based on highest weights from 10 points down to 1 point irrespective of points awarded in Winter league. We have therefore amended the Matchman league to correctly reflect this. The Winter League remains unaffected. See here latest league.
 
8th November 2012 - November Club Meeting & AGM

The construction of our new decking at our Brownlee's Pool continues.
You can see above the restraining boards going into place. After they are complete the ground is to be backfilled and a compacted surface will be added. Which will be more robust and long lasting.
If everything goes to plan work is due for completion tomorrow. We will of course keep you updated via this website.
 
5th November 2012 - 30th Anniversary coming soon
   
We are now in November and 2013 is just around the corner.

Once we have confirmed prices and availability we will post more details on the website. Members will be able to order clothing. Details coming soon.

25th October 2012 - Rip It Up!
   
Well we have spoken about it for long enough and today's the day when it eventually happened.
Yes, some of the old decking at Brownlee's has now been ripped up and is to be replaced with hard standing which will last a lifetime and be better to fish from without getting snagged in the chickenwire.
The process may take up to two weeks, but it will be well worth it.
Will keep you updated as work progresses.
Up comes the old decking

However after five gruelling hours POHAS 1 beat the opposition to take the honours, our second team finishing in seventh position also did us proud. Below you can view/download the results.

You will recall in the news at the end of August we announced that two of our Junior members were due to fish the above match as part of the Cheshire Angling Development Group team, the match taking place on Saturday 1st September.

However Jordan Mahoney fished in the reserves match which he won with a weight of 820 grammes. So well done to Jordan, also to Ethan Neary our other Junior member fishing that day, and of course to everyone involved for what appeared to be a great day's fishing. Finally thanks to Martin James of CADG for his assistance and attendance on the day.

2nd September 2012 - Lammy the Record Breaker!
   
Congratulations to club member extraordinaire Alan Lamb who smashed the club's match record weight yesterday at Solhampton Fishery in Worcestershire.
If you haven't read yesterdays report Alan was one of seventeen members fishing one of our Summer League matches.
The previous record which had lasted several years was 98lb held by past club member Ian Armstrong.
Yesterday Alan blitzed that with a total weight of 179lb 2oz in our usual five hour match.
In total Alan had six nets in the water to contain his catch and he didn't stop catching from the all-in to the all-out.
We would like to congratulate Alan on this fantastic achievement, well done 'The Laminator'.

9th August 2012 - CADG Junior Team Match
   
Six of our Junior members battled it out yesterday on the River Weaver, Hartford, Northwich along with four other clubs as part of the CADG Team match competition.
It was always going to be tough particularly as we don't generally fish Rivers. For once the weather was absolutely brilliant with more or less wall to wall sunshine and a temperature of 24 degrees Celsius which is 75 degrees Fahrenheit, no wind to speak of, only a few rowers from the local club to deal with and occasional canal boat.
Well done to everyone who fished particularly our team of Steven, Tom, Kieran, Leon, Matt & Ed, also to all the other teams and their supporters. Lastly to Frank and Angela who ran the BBQ whilst your editor was off taking photo's.
Well done to Prince Albert who won, to see all the results go to the CADG website.

3rd August 2012 - Brownlee's Work Party
   
On the subject of Work Parties, whilst our chief photographer was on his hols, club members Frank Davies and James and John Bryan planted up the recently introduced floating Island at Brownlee's.
Avid members and viewers of this website may recall that we installed the island at the beginning of July with the assistance of our local Environment Agency friends. Now it looks good with the plants added which will soon grow and develop on the island.

3rd August 2012 - Whitegate Work Party
   
Many thanks to club members Frank Davies, James Bryan, Paul Morris, Stephen Tatlock and Ken Whibley for lending a hand last night at our Whitegate Pool.
Hedges were trimmed and a mass of blanket weed which was beginning to choke large areas of the pool were removed along with some of the water lilies.
Long term the lilies are receiving treatment which should over time vastly reduce their prolific growth across the pool and spoiling fishing for our members.
Thanks also to club member and bailiff Ian Maddock who wasn't available this evening, but who also spent a few hours during the week removing weed from the pool.
Work parties will continue and additional works will be carried out on both of our pools.

2nd August 2012 - July Highlight
   
Backlog of news following your editors two week holiday.
At our last Summer match at Heronbrook where our papperazzi was absent, club member Kev Smith decided to lean a bit too far forward on his peg and took a dive into the murky waters, trashing his mobile phone and losing some of his catch in the process.
Whilst our paperazzi was absent club member Paul Morris was on hand to record Kev preparing to exit the water. As ever Kev took it well and here's the evidence for all to see.

Today members of the Environment Agency came along to Brownlee's Pool and with willing club members constructed two floating islands which are new features aimed at giving cover for the fish and extra features for anglers to fish to.
In due course the island will be planted and over time will look like a natural feature.
We must thank club members James and John Bryan, Alan Lamb, Brian Gort, Alex Donaldson (and Dad), plus the two Ian's from the EA.
We have done a photo gallery which can be viewed by clicking on the picture alongside or by visiting our gallery.

2nd July 2012 - Garbolino Club Angler 2012
 
Garbolino Club Angler 2012
 
You may recall in an earlier news item, club member Alan Lamb qualified for the final of Garbolino Club Angler 2012, which was held at Lindholme Lakes on Friday 29th June. Forty five anglers battled it out in the final for the title and the chance to win a £2,500 Garbolino Pole and cash prize as well.
Whilst Alan sadly didn't win, he managed a section win to earn himself £50 and of course the knowledge that he had competed in a prestigious final. With him on the day offering support and advise was club member and close friend of Alan, James Bryan. Well done Al from everyone associated with POHAS and thanks to James for his support.
We don't have all the results as they will be published in Match Fishing magazine. But well done from us all.

14th June 2012 - What Fishermen do when not fishing?
   

The answer to the above question is dress up as Batman and Robin and go to France!
Along with about a dozen other mates club member James Bryan, brother John and others are heading down to Lemans to watch the world famous 24 Hours Race.
God help the French that's all I can say.

Joe Worsley look out!

11th June 2012 - We need plastic bottles!
   
A strange request but we are hoping club members may be able to help.
We will soon be adding a Floating Island to our pool at Brownlee's as a valuable feature to fish to.
Part of the construction requires a quantity of the small plastic pop bottles usually about 500ml size, typically Coke, Fanta etc.
If any club members get through these size bottles, we would appreciate it if you could save the empties and let us know. We require approximately two bin bags full, so you can see that is quite a few bottles. If you can help, contact us and let us know. Please note bigger sizes are NOT REQUIRED.

24th April 2012 - CADG Junior Spring League - Trent & Mersey Canal
   

A team of six Juniors from our club took part in a new Spring League series organised by the Cheshire Angling Development Group.
Other teams from Northwich, Warrington, Bay Malton and Prince Albert took part in the event which was the first in a series of four matches taking place during April and May.
The event was organised to help forge links between clubs and encourage our Juniors in the sport and get them used to team events and of course to give them more competitions to enjoy.
Although the weather wasn't ideal with rain, hail and a stiff breeze, it picked up later in the day and more importantly all those involved enjoyed the event and are looking forward to the second match which takes place this coming Sunday on the Bridgewater Canal, this time hosted by Warrington Anglers.
Thanks to all those who took part including Anglers, Officials, Parents and the helpers which made the event run smoothly.

The league is currently headed by Northwich Anglers and when we get the results through we will post here on our website.

We have uploaded some of the photo's from this first match and click the photo alongside and you will get to the photo gallery.

Finally thanks to our team members Ethan, Steven, Tom, Jordan, Liam and Ollie who took part on behalf of our club.

16th April 2012 - Environmental Page
   
Many anglers both members and non-members are now becoming more and more aware of the environment that in general they enjoy whilst fishing the length and breadth of the UK. That goes for all types of fishing from Coarse, to Carp, Specimen, Fly Fishing, Sea Fishing and any other variants available to today's angler.
In many respects the Angler is also the eyes and ears of the environment and all of us should be aware of what's going on outside of our front door.
With this in mind we have pulled together some information extracted from other websites to whom we have asked consent and to whom we are greatful, which details in particular non-native and invasive species which are having a negative effect on our environment, you can read more on our 'eco page' and even more at the NNSS website from where the information was extracted. We have added a button on the side of most of our web pages for convenience.
We would encourage everyone, particularly Anglers to have a read, and if there are any questions, let us know or contact the relevant authorities (eg NNSS or Environment Agency).

2nd April 2012 - Environment Agency Rod Licence
   
A polite reminder to all anglers wether you are a club member or not, don't forget that to fish anywhere in the UK you require a valid Environment Agency Rod Licence. The latest 2012/13 issue came into effect from yesterday 1st April and lasts until 31st March 2013. Please make sure you are up to date, as failure to provide evidence when asked by an EA officer you could be subject to a fine up to £2,500.
Don't think they won't get you, because we know of people who have.
You can click on either the Post Office or 'EA; image and you will go direct to the Post Office website where you can purchase your licence and find out more information.
You can of course also visit your local Post Office branch, where they will be happy to help.

19th March 2012 - Litter Problem
   
To all members, we have been seeing litter occuring on our pools recently which we would like to see either taken home or deposited in bins that are available on site for convenience.
The last instance being bread scattered as you can see from the photograph, this was at Brownlee's last Friday. Whilst we understand that this could have been done by anyone we would like to think that everyone has enough common sense to take away litter or dispose of in a proper manner. Certainly leaving food waste is not going to help and causes environmental issues. So please, take your litter home, or if you see anyone dumping or leaving litter, get in touch and let us know. Thank you.

17th March 2012 - Winter Drizzler 2 - Lymm Dam
 

To say this match was disappointing is an understatement. The day started fine after what was a rubbish weather report saying heavy rain and looking out of the window at 6am to see heavy rain, the thought was to go back to bed, however by 6.30am the rain had stopped, the car was loaded and by 7.40am we were at Lymm Dam with broken cloud, blue skies appearing and some sun with little or no breeze, the day seemed to improve. After a sausage sandwich at the butty bar (thanks Kev), the day was improving...... All-in was whenever you were ready, and all-out was at 2.30pm. There isn't a match report as such as there was nothing to report on but five hours of no fish and no bites! Only one person caught that was Colin our coach driver who had a single one pound Bream. An absolute disaster of a day, don't think we will be going back any time soon, it appears as though the only thing catching fish has been the Cormorants.

That's it, next match see's the start of our Spring League which starts on 14th April at Highfield Fishery and then on 28th April we have our final Winter Drizzler at Lloyd's Meadow. See you all soon. For those who want to see the results and league for this Winter Drizzler series, follow the links below.

13th March 2012 - Fishery Update
   
Yet again bailiff Ian Maddock has reported in today that this morning on Brownlee's was again a good time to be fishing.
Within the space of two hours he caught thirty two fish of which twenty two were Crucian Carp.
Given the quite mild conditions we have had and look to continue for the remainder of the week we would expect the fish in both of our pools to become more active.
So if you have a little time on your hands, get down to one of the pools and try your hand, if at Brownlee's maybe pellet on the bottom.
Don't forget licences need renewing from Friday 16th March, prices same as last year, £15 for Adults, £10 OAP's and £5 for Juniors (aged 16 or under on 16/03/12). Available on-line at no extra charge via our shop and pay securely with PayPal, you don't have to have a PayPal account to order.
You can of course also see one of our bailiffs at the pools, so take your money with you.

No money or "I left my licence at home" or "I spoke to **** he said I could fish". Sorry, you will be asked to leave in fairness to all of our members who stay within the rules (off our soapbox now).

2nd March 2012 - Club Licence Error
 
An eagle eyed member has spotted a typographical error in our new licence.
On pages 20/21 which shows the Senior Matches, under the heading of Summer Sizzlers we have mistakenly left in the 2011 dates instead of entering the 2012 dates. Apologies for this oversight, copies of licences awaiting issue have been amended. The correct dates are of course shown on our matches page here on our website. Well spotted Lea!

27th February 2012 - Club Licence 2012-13
   
Whilst we are a couple of weeks away from the official start date for the new 2012-13 club licence, we can advise that the licence is available now on-line from our shop.
Prices are the same as last year, £15 Adult, £10 OAP and just £5 for Juniors. There isn't a closed season so you can fish all year round which works out to a little over 4 pence a day for an adult member. Value for money or what!
Don't forget we restocked both of our pools in November and we have already had catch reports from members saying how the fishing has improved and we are still in Winter.
To get you licence on-line at no extra cost, click on the shop button and order your licence safely via our secure shop. Payment goes via PayPal, but you do not need a PayPal account to purchase.
We hope you enjoy your fishing.

6th February 2012 - Summer League 2012
 
Important note to our match fishing members. Due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to revise two of our matches in this years Summer League. The dates affected are 14th July and 4th August. Originally we were going to Lindholme Lakes on 14th July and Heronbrook on the 4th August. These have now been swapped around, so it's Heronbrook on 14th July and Lindholme Lakes on 4th August.
Apologies for the inconvenience but we had no control over the matter and the above is the best conclusion we could achieve. This change has been applied to our matches page, and of course will appear in the forthcoming 2012/13 club licence.

News from bailiff Ian Maddock who was fishing on our Whitegate pool last Friday morning. He tells us it was a good mornings fishing with a few good sized Roach and seventeen of our new Carp in the space of a couple of hours!
Good to see the Carp have settled in.
