24th December 2016 - Seasons Greetings
   

Well, that's almost another year over and another hectic one!
It only remains for us to thank everyone who has been involved with the club throughout 2016 and there are far to many to mention, from members to tackle shops, tackle manufacturers, friends, family, sponsors, 'Young Brian' our coach driver, our friends in the media, our local pub the Hoop & Mallet for hosting our meetings and supporting our events, as we say the club wouldn't be the club without everyones help, that's why we think of ourselves as a 'community' club, because our local community are the life and blood of the club.

That's it for now, we hope to see you all soon, have a great Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year

12th September 2016 - Senior Matches 2016-17
   
At long last we can confirm our Senior matches for the forthcoming 2016/17 season.
Majority of venues based upon members votes at our December and June club meetings. Lingmere was booked two years ago in 2015 due to their popularity and members mentioning the venue as a fishery they would like to go to.
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.
Our inaugural year of midweek matches in 2016 has had an amazing response and that will continue into 2017. We are sorting venues and dates, once we have them, we will update our website and of course our followers on our Facebook pages.

Here's to another great season!

24th May 2016 - Summer Sizzler - Meadow View
   

The club committee would like to thank Alan Lamb for offering to supervise/run this weekends Summer Sizzler at Meadow View on Sunday 29th May.
Unfortunately both Chairman and Secretary are unable to attend, so as well as match referee duties Alan is also administering the match.

On that note, we would appreciate any members fishing this match please ensure you arrive IN TIME for the draw which will take place at 4.00pm.
If you ain't there, you are unlikely to get a peg. Alan will have his work cut out, so stragglers are unlikely to be accommodated.
Please don't text Chairman or Secretary as they are not in attendance and won't be able to pass on messages.

Once again, thanks Alan, for stepping up. hope everyone fishing has a great match - Tightlines All!

3rd May 2016 - Midweek League - Results
   
Today saw the first ever midweek match for us and couldn't have had a better venue or better weather.
We were unsure how popular this league would be although we were hopeful it would attract other club members who may prefer midweek to weekend matches.
Needn't have worried, upon arrival fifteen members were waiting for us! A pleasant mix of match and pleasure anglers, just as we wanted.
After a bit of admin with Nellie & Mel at Partridge Lakes, we got the draw completed and your's truly left for work.
Attendee's were left in the capable hands of Tony and Rob to officiate the match.
I managed to get back for weigh-in, where Jon Green also turned up to help (cheers Jon). Links below to relevant info, you can also navigate using webpage buttons.
See you on the next match! - Tightlines.

21st April 2016 - Garbolino Club Angler
   
Apologies to the guys who took part in the above qualifier at Lindholme Lakes last Friday 15th April. work commitments having delayed website update.
Both Alan Lamb and Mark Davies who represented our club put in a stirling effort against 145 other anglers with only fifteen qualifying for the final at Barston Lakes, Solihull, Birmingham.
Mark amassed 44lb on his section with the winner on his section eventually having 60lb so a brilliant effort from Mark on his first attempt.
Alan hauled out 59lb with others on his section in the fifties but not enough to catch Lammy, so he has qualified for the final.
On behalf of all committee and members we would like to express our thanks and congratulations to both Alan and Mark for representing POHAS, and another pat on the back for Alan who after several years trying has got through to the final where he will face 44 other club anglers. The date for the diary, 15th July. Tightlines All!

21st April 2016 - Brownlee's Workparty
   

Thanks to Marc & Callum Fearnley, Barrie Armstrong, James Bryan and me (Paul Bryan).
Yesterday evening our workparty at Brownlee's Pool cleared all paths of mud and leaves. The mud being caused by the huge amount of rain we have had over Winter which had washed down onto the paths.
We will in due course be re-stoning the paths on a future workparty to get them back up to the standard we desire.

We had scheduled a further workparty for next Wednesday 27th April also at our Brownlee's Pool. This is currently on hold, if it is to go ahead, we will advise on Facebook and here on our website.
Thanks again to those who helped last evening.

22nd March 2016 - Dogs Bollocks Team Match 2017 - "Summer Edition"
   
Hot off the press, we are pleased to announce by popular demand our now traditional Dogs Bollocks match which takes place in March each year has now been extended in 2017, we will now have an additional match in Summer.

The Dogs Bollocks team match was originally created in 2014 with four like minded clubs wanting a bit of fun prior to the season, hence the March date. We have four teams each with 12 anglers fishing across three pools at Partridge Lakes, they are Marsh, Spey and Covey 6.
The match has been so popular with the teams a question was asked this year if we could also have a Summer match, when hopefully it will be a bit warmer and the fish more forthcoming!

Was a big ask to find a convenient date to suit all four clubs and get the same date across three lakes on one fishery during Summer months.
After a conversation with Partridge Lakes we nailed 15th July 2017 and fortune favours the brave and it also suited all teams. So there you have it, next year we have two 'DB Matches'.

Looking forward to it immensely. Teams, put the dates in your diary 18/03/17 for 1st match and 15/07/17 for Summer match.

Our new club licence is now in effect and has been from 16th March. If you are planning to fish our waters and/or future club matches you need to make sure you have your new 2016/17 club licence and within a week or two you will also need to renew your Rod Licence for 2016/17 via the Post Office.
Club licences can be obtained from our bailiffs, club chairman or online at no extra charge from our online shop. No licence no likey!

Also and very important to our match anglers. Due to popular demand our match angler membership numbers have increased along with general membership, we are now very close to maxing out on bookings for our forthcoming Spring/Summer League matches.
We are at a point now if you haven't paid a bond yet or pay monthly, pegs are going thick and fast. The day where you could just turn up and fish is becoming a thing of the past.
So if you want to fish our matches, I would urge (a) make sure you have a valid club licence, and (b) speak to Frank Davies our Chairman to sort out your bond while there are still places available (07586 341004).
We don't want to be in a position to disappoint nor turn anglers away, we are hoping to ensure know one is disappointed, but doing the above and confirming with Chairman is your best route to fishing with POHAS.
All contact details and information can be found elsewhere on this website (About Us button), you can of course message us via facebook, or e-mail us, or be radical, pick up the phone and ring Frank! - Tightlines All

   
20th March 2016- Dogs Bollocks Team Match - Results
 
Dogs Bollocks Teams 2016
Pohas enjoying their reward for winning match along with fellow anglers
   
A great day was had by all at the third 'Dogs Bollocks' team match.
Four teams of twelve anglers took part in the match held at Partridge Lakes yesterday on three of their pools, Marsh, Spey and Covey 6. The weather was overcast with a light, but in places chilly breeze with the air temerature maxing out at 10 degrees C, or 50 degrees F in old money.
The teams involved were Richmonds, Poplars, Watergate AC and of course ourselves. Congratulations to all of those who picked up money, including a 'super pools' organised by our very own Mark Bibby, affectionately known as "Gobsh*te".
In the third year of running, POHAS finally succeeded in lifting the trophy, well done to our team whose names are shown alphabetically below.
We also had a 'one off' individual trophy this year for the angler who had highest weight across the pools. This was the Jeff Clare trophy in honour of Jeff who passed away earlier this year and was an angler well known to many of us who fished for several clubs over the years predominantly Richmonds and was also Phil's Dad, so this was a mark of respect to Jeff which we were honoured to do. The winner of this great prize was our very own Alan Lamb who fished peg 3 on Spey Canal and had a winning weight of 77lb 10oz, congratulations Alan!

Whilst in 'thank you mode', thanks to our captains for picking a winning team, thanks to all those club members who attended the practice last week and took time out to compete for a team place, thanks also to Kieran and Leon who attended yesterday as reserves just in case any team was a man down, fortunately all teams were fully manned so we hope Kieran and Leon enjoyed a day pleasure fishing at Partridge Lakes courtesy of POHAS.
Finally thanks again to everyone who took part and the great sport in which it was contested. We will do it all again in 2017, so watch this space for details.
