  • River Steeping Opens

    River Steeping Opens will be running again this winter. despite all the EA`s efforts to prevent us fishing. ( or should I rephrase that as lack of effort to help us despite me havinga right go at them-with no joy.).
    The EA have had a machine down and cleared the reeds from both banks of the whole river--all apart from the roadside stretch which is accesable to anglers, and we use for matches--so we are having to clear reeds and make flat bits of bank as we go along.

    But we wont be beaten and the Matches will run every Sunday and Wednesday, (weather and River condintions depending) until the end of the season.
    Draw will be as usual, In Wainfleet market place at 9 AM prompt fish 10 till 3. £10 stake all paid pegging fee.

    We have had two small taster matches,

    Sun 4th Nov Chainbridge
    1st Alec Rawlings 9lb 5oz. Roach and Perch Including a 1lb plus Perch
    2nd Pete Harker 9lb 3oz all Roach
    3rd Paul Yarwood 8lb all Roach
    4th Derek Skinner 6lb 6oz all Roach
    5th Ian Brodie 3lb 13oz all Perch

    Weds 7th Nov Crows Bridge
    1st Derek Skinner 10lb 13oz all Roach
    2nd Nathan Watson 7lb 6oz ( Roach)
    3rd Mark Cook 3lb 15oz (Roach and Perch)

    Hopefully there will be better turnouts when anglers get thier heads in to winter (river) mode

          December 2nd Dovecore 10 fished
          1st peg 2 Alec Rawlings 16lb 12oz wag and mag Roach and Perch
          2nd peg 3 Kev Wilson 12lb 13oz Roach whip and pinkie
          3rd peg 10 Paul Yarwood 10lb 15oz Roach pinkie and punch
          4th peg 9 Mark Cook 10lb 8oz Roach whip and pinkie
          5th peg 5 Ian Brodie 10lb 2oz Roach whip and pinkie
          6th peg 1 Kieran Cook 10lb Roach and Perch pinkie and worm
          Lowest weight was 7lb 13oz
          The wind got up after 2 hrs,and made it very difficult --makes you think how much better the weights would have been if it had been properly fishable for the full 5hrs.
