    Default River Steeping matches

    Open matches on the River Steeping will be run every Sunday from Nov 5th until the end of the season. everyone welcome..
    There will aslo be sweeps run on Wednesdays, if there is enough interest. first Weds one will be Nov 8th,
    Draw 9am prompt Wainfleet market place, fish 10am--3pm. £10 sweepstake.
    It wont be as easy to run the matches from now on- as the EA in all thier wisdom have taken out all the platforms on the match length, although they have put 5 new ones in on the School house bend, but doing this has not helped us at all--it makes it difficult to run an even match on this stretch.
    But there are still several areas of flat bank that can be used, it just means a bit more care and effort to set up. and parking will be more difficult.
    But as already stated we arent put off and will be pressing ahead with the matches.

    Its a long story and I have been hassling the EA for the last two months or so about it. -but basically no club or local council would take the responsiblity for them, the EA`s stipulations were so strict it just wasnt practical, and on top of that -the public liability-they reconed it cost them £3000 a year to maintain them--which is debatable..-, my gripe with them wasnt that they took them out-it was that they had left the banks so steep there are places that are unfishable. and also reeds growing so far out that you couldnt get at the river to fish it-I keet on to them and eventually they got a digger in and cleared most of the reeds so you can get at the river where the bank is flat enough..I dont know if they were going to do it anyway-( which I doubt- as they havent for the last 10 years)or the fact that I kept moaning at them---there was 43 platforms on the stretch--they have put in 5 new ones at a cost of £5500 near a lay-by where you can park, I would have though that could have put 20 in for that price--but what do I know.

    PS: I doubt I`ll be doing much good in the matches -as I seem to have lost the plot at the moment--maybe cos ive been thinking more about hassling the EA than my fishing.

    I bet they are all really pleased that you are preoccupied with the EA & only got 1 eye on the ball
    They must be cuffed to bits to not get totally stuffed 😆😆
    Keep it up Derrick blow by blow report next time

    Thanks Col--I actually nearly packed up after 2 hrs I only had about 20 small fish and everyone else looked to be catching, but I started to pick up the odd fish after 2.5 hrs and caught steady till the end.--pretty pleasing to win from a middle peg too. usually the end pegs are favorite. No one was more shocked than me when my weight was read, I tought I maybe had 7-8lbs.

    Nov 8th Result - Dovecote,,, 6 anglers
    1st peg 2 Pete Harker 12lb 9oz -150 Roach pole and punch
    2nd peg 5 Derek Skinner 12lb 5oz -188 Roach 4m whip and punch
    3rd peg 6 Alec Rawlings 9lb 5oz Roach waggler and maggot
    4th peg 3 Denis Houghton 6lb 7oz pole and pinkie
    5th peg 4 Mark Cook 6lb 2ozz pole and pinkie , and worm
    6th peg 1 Len shucksmith 4lb 8oz, perch -pole and worm
    Conditions were perfect at the start, calm cloody and a steady run. Pete caught steady all match, Derek caught well for the first 1,3/4 hrs averaging a fish a minute, then it stopped running, and struggled only picking up odd fish the rest of the match.. Alec caught steady to start then caught well when it stood.
