9th December 2014 - Morrison's Bag Pack - CANCELLED
   
It is with much regret that we have to advise the planned bag pack at Morrison's which we undertake on an annual basis to raise funds for our Junior members has had to be cancelled this year due to lack of support.
We only had two Junior members interested in helping, unfortunately this is not a viable number, so therefore the committee has taken this decision.
So we would advise members, unless you are doing your shopping, don't turn up at Morrison's Warrington on Thursday 11th December, as we will not be in attendance.

5th October 2014 - Adam Hill 'Marathon Man'
   

Evening all dear members.
For those in our club and in particular at our Presentation Night on Friday.
We are please to say that club member Adam Hill did his first (and only so he say's) marathon in Chester earlier today.
He completed the course in an excellent 3 hours 25 minutes and 7 seconds which is an excellent time. He got to half way in 1 hour 40 minutes.
Adam said from 20 miles onwards was difficult and the last 2 miles were ridiculous!
More importantly Adam managed to raise sponsorship of nearly £600 which goes to Cancer Research UK.
On his journey today Adam was supported by his girlfriend Sarah, James Bryan and work colleague Martin (who also did this marathon in a ridiculously quick time).
So well done to Adam, thanks to all the sponsors and his support crew. Hopefully he will recover in time for our first Winter match next Saturday 11th October at Wrightington Fishery. Enjoy a rest during what remains of this weekend Adam!

Photo's from last night's event are now available to view, click on the photo alongside or you can of course go via the gallery page to see these and all our other photo galleries.
Final thanks to Mark and Maureen our hosts at Roosters Club, Warrington who fed and watered us throughout the evening.

Just a brief note from all Committee, Members, Family & Friends of club member Alan Lamb and his Girlfriend Emily, who tomorrow go off on a trip of a lifetime to South East Asia and other countries besides. Not something you do in the usual two weeks, so they are off for four months! First stop we believe is Singapore, hence why we said goodbye in Malay, one of the many languages spoken there.
All the best guys! Keep in touch and let us know how things go, may even put some of it on our website if you are happy for us to.

Have a great time "selamat jalan".

Alan & Emily

31st August 2014 - CADG 2014 Senior Pairs Match
 
John & Neil
Club members John Bryan & Neil Pritchard
 

Many members/readers may know that POHAS are a member of CADG (Cheshire Angling Development Group) along with several other Cheshire based clubs. The aim of the group is to introduce more Juniors into the sport and where possible encourage them along a talent pathway to develop their angling skills.
Earlier today CADG held a pairs match at Border Fishery near Crewe to raise funds for the work that the CADG whom we are a member can continue to grow and develop.
Member clubs organised twenty five pairs for today's event which was held on Meridian Canal a 64 peg Canal. Each pair paid £30 to fish with £20 going into the pools fund and £10 going towards the CADG for funding future Junior events. The match was being judged on combined weight for each pair and there were cash prizes for the top five, £150 for 1st, £120 for 2nd, £100 for 3rd, £70 for 4th and £60 for 5th.
Thanks to all those anglers who entered, you have helped raised £250 for the CADG which will be spent wisely on future events.
Many thanks to all the staff at Border Fishery and BMAC (Bay Malton Angling Club for hosting the event and providing the pool free of charge, special thanks to Stewart and Rob on the day and to Darren from the Angling Trust for his assistance. Also to Karl in the cafe who provided a tasty breakfast to set us up for the day!
Our club entered five pairs, although a sixth pair entered under Lymm Anglers are also POHAS club members. Our pairs were:-

John Bryan/Neil Pritchard, James Bryan/Alan Lamb, Sue Nicholson/Phil Morris, Mike Lewis/Paul Morris & Andy Kennedy/Carl Moriarty. John Osborne/Mark Davies entered via Lymm Anglers but are also POHAS members.

The match fished from 10.15 - 3.15 and it was a tough day with fish few and far between. Apparently yesterday's match was also tough. The pool up until last week was being won with weights up to eighty pounds.
So whilst we didn't get big weights we certainly had a close match and it was tough to call.
Unfortunately your scribe doesn't have a full set of the results but more may be published soon on BMAC website.
We are pleased to announce however that our anglers John Bryan and Neil Pritchard (pictured above) walked away with the first prize of £150, well done guys! None POHAS members picked up 2nd - 4th places with John Osborne & Mark Davies of Lymm Anglers (and POHAS) picked up 5th place. James Bryan & Alan Lamb followed closely in sixth but unfortunately no prize but well fished all the same. Congratulations also goes to all of our teams who took time out of their weekend to fish, tough though it was, we hope you enjoyed it.

The total combined weight of our winners was 28lb 8oz, that shows how tough it was.

Well done all, same time next year hopefully!

14th April 2014 - Spring League 2014 - High Heyes Fishery

League 'A' for majority of our matchmen and League 'B' catering for other anglers either new to club or who are not that bothered about such a competitive league, but who still can win pools money and possible Golden Peg.

16th March 2014 - 'Dogs Bollocks' Team Match
 
Dogs Bollocks Teams 2014
 
Our inaugural 'Dogs Bollocks' team match took place yesterday at Partridge Lakes Fishery using Marsh Canal, Spey Canal and Covey 6.
We had four teams of twelve anglers split across the pools in sections of four.
Teams battling it out for this trophy was Poplars, Richmonds, Marketgate AC and ourselves.
It was a tough day although the temperature was around the twelve degree mark and the sun made an appearance from time to time, this was all negated by the gusty wind conditions, which at about 20mph made life difficult for anglers, particularly those on Covey 6 and some anglers had breakages and incidents along the way.
The draw took place at 8.30am and the match fished from 10.00am - 3.00pm.
Cash prizes today were for the top three (by weight) on each pool (Marsh, Spey, and Covey 6 was split into 6A and 6B). Finally the main prize of the team trophy was based upon the twelve sections of four. Points awarded one for first place down to four for fourth place. The team whose' total points are lower win, and if two teams are equal then we count back on section wins.
After the match and the weigh-in, the scores were added up and the results as follows:-

1st D Mannion Poplars 39lb 13oz

Thanks to all the clubs and members for making this such a great event.

The team result was close between Marketgate AC and Richmonds, both of whom had twenty eight points each, so the section wins were counted and Richmonds won the day with five section wins against Marketgate AC's three section wins. So well done to our winners and thanks to everyone for a close, well fought but friendly competition.
Hopefully we can do a similar event next year and our worthy team winners Richmonds will have the honour of organising. We all look forward to it.

9th March 2014 - Partridge Hunting
 
Several of our club members and match anglers, including Alan Lamb, James & John Bryan, Adam Hill and Neil Davies have been getting some match practice on Partridge Lakes in readiness for our team match at the very same venue next Saturday.
The weather this weekend has been great getting up to about 20 degrees and blue sky, especially today where the wind was negligible.
Some of the lads also had success both yesterday and today with 'rewarding' results from their sections so well done to those anglers, so we have fingers and toes crossed for next weekend.
We will of course bring you a report and the weights as we do for all official matches.

22nd February 2014 - Brownlee's 'Knock Up'
 
Some of our members today decided to have a little knock up on Brownlee's Pool to dust off the cobwebs, and to help the day along we took the BBQ along to provide Bacon and Sausage butties and our trusty kettle for a warming brew!
Weather was quite kind today at about 5 degree's going up to about 9 degree's by Midday and a slight breeze, for the most part we had blue skies although we did have a rain shower just for a couple of minutes.
Suffice to say our new Perch didn't make an appearance, no doubt sulking after their early morning introduction, but they will provide some sport in the weeks, months and years ahead.
The match fished from 10.15am until 2.30pm and the results can be seen below.
No prizes for today's match just for the fun and the banter.
