Good evening members.
As you know it's the last match of 2019 this coming weekend at Partridge Lakes on Covey 5, our traditional 'Fur & Feather' match.
We have some great news, club member Mark Shazzam BIbby has kindly agreed to sponsor the match, so in a variation to past matches we can advise the following for this match only.

1st Place wins £150
2nd Place wins £100
3rd Place wins £50

We will also have section wins (not eligible if you are 1st,2nd,3rd) to be agreed when we know match numbers on the day.
Pools/Golden Peg money collected on the day (usual £3) will contribute to section prizes.
Peg fee, this match only £8.00
Golden Peg - we will have three numbers drawn instead of the traditional one to increase chance of winning (£200).
Please note - Only current club members are eligible to enter, ie 2019/20 licence holders as of 17/11/19.
If you are eligible and plan to fish, please ensure you pay for match and pools (£8 match, £3 Pools/GP) by 8.45am, draw will take place at 9.00am and the match will fish 10.00 - 3.00 (confirmed/agreed at time of draw).

3rd November 2019 - Facebook Update
   

Quick update for members and friends.
As well as Penketh & Old Hall Angling Society facebook page, we have now replaced our 'pohas seniors' page, as it was a closed group and unfortunately we couldn't get access to change it, having tried to communicate with Facebook without success.
So we now have 'pohas match group' which is primarily for any of our members who fish matches or members who would like to fish matches to put their comments, this is an open group available to anyone.

As it is an 'open' group, we would appreciate that no bad language or profanities or derogatory comments of any kind be posted. Any such posts will be deleted.
Thanks for cooperating.
Tell your angling friends about the page, they may like it.

We will stop adding items to pohas seniors page at the end of November. Members in the old group we suggest you remove yourself to save any confusion.

13th August 2019 - Final Coach Trip
   
As most match members will know, this Saturday see's the last ever POHAS coach trip.
We have had some great trips over the years, many of them thanks to Colin and his company Tarbock Travel.
Colin sold his company last year with the aim to enjoy retirement, don't think he's relaxing too much yet, however the repercussions to us and many others being that trips are now extremely expensive and cost prohibitive, when you add the cost of peg fee's at the fisheries, breakfast, tea and a few beers, the cost is now too high, so hence, this will be the last on Saturday (17/08/19).
For those who are on it, enjoy it, for those who can't make it, treasure the past memories and hope to see you on future matches (car trips of course).

After a short illness he passed away in Whiston hospital at 5am last Saturday.
He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all those that knew him.
His dry wit, the talent to create parodies of songs with a fishing theme, tell great stories and could sing. A great bloke to know and a friend to all.
Paul 'Roly' Rowlands

Date - Tuesday 9th July 2019 at St Stephens Church, Orford, Warrington. which is located in Sandy Lane, Warrington, WA2 9HS.

At 1.00pm family and friends are welcome at the Maltings Pub, Bewsey Farm Close, Warrington, WA5 9PB to remember Roly, celebrate his life and have a drink for him.

If you wish to give flowers they will be welcome, or alternatively the family have set up a 'Just Giving' page which goes to Vasculitus UK, if you wish to make a donation, click on the link below.

17th March 2019 - Dogs Bollocks Team Match 2019
   

Yesterday saw our annual team competition eloquently known as our 'Dogs Bollocks match', as the winner, is of course, the Dogs doodahs.
As ever, Partridge Lakes hosted the event for us (thanks Barbara & Dave), the teams this year with POHAS, were Eccles, Richmonds and Woolston.
Fair to say the weather was atrocious today with heavy rain, and a freezing wind blowing across the complex, so thanks to all forty eight anglers for turning up and putting up with the conditions the Almighty gave us today.
Congratulations to the winners Eccles, it was a very close match with Eccles edging out POHAS by one section win.
Click on the image alongside to view/download PDF of match results.
Look forward to doing it again in 2020, hopefully with more favourable weather - Tightlines.
