  • James maude angling club 1969 - 2019 springvale fishery


    Saturday 8th June 2019 Spring Vale Fishery, First Spring Lake.

    Weather: Bright start to the day with heavy rain throughout the day, with strong winds and feeling colder.

    Call Out The Trumpton Fire Brigade
    The action takes place in the fictional town of Trumpton, a short distance from the equally fictional village of Camberwick Green, the focus of the first series in the Trumptonshire Trilogy. Each episode begins with a shot of Trumpton Town Hall clock:
    "Here is the clock, the Trumpton clock. Telling the time, steadily, sensibly; never too quickly, never too slowly. Telling the time for Trumpton"
    The fire brigade is perhaps Trumpton's most-recognised feature. Captain Flack's roll-call was recited in all but one episode:
    Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, DIBBLE, Grubb.
    Well the action took place in the picturesque settings on Bevercotes as Springvale Fishing Lakes was more like Wintervale with the weather throwing everything at the anglers on show today all except some snow, as temperatures dropped, strong winds and heavy showers for most of the day, this was not a day for the faint hearted as the Maude’s Men made their first visit to this majestic fishing complex. And after Captain Flack’s (Skelly’s) role call it was time to get down to business.
    The Trumpton Fire Brigade were on standby as not even the very heavy showers could put out the man on fire at the moment, one of Trupmton’s very own crew DIBBLE took the spoils with back to back wins.
    Scott fished casters on two plus two all the match to net a combination of mainly Ide and some Carp for 92lb-15oz from peg 3. Very well done Scott.
    Second place the only angler to fish in a Mill pond, as peg 17 was out of the wind, Pete Lambert took an impressive 86lb-14oz to the scales. Well done Pete.
    Third place going to Gary Summerscales with a cracking bag of Ide weighing 50lb with a second net making his total of 79lb-8oz from peg 21. Well done Gary.
    So on a day when not even the weather could dampen the spirits of the dedicated and loyal James Maude Men, thank you all for you determination in sticking this one out, you are a credit to the club.
    The results are as follows:
    Scott Dibble 92lb-15oz peg 3

    Special thanks to Sue Bloom for the very kind greeting we received upon our arrival, making all the Maude’s Men very welcome. Your care and attention to detail combined with your commitment makes this Fishery a great venue for the club matches. The quality and condition of the fish caught today were impeccable; this is testament to your consideration of fish welfare and all things that benefit the anglers. We thank you.

    Summing up not a bad match considering the horrendous conditions, good winning weight and good backup weights.
    Next Match Saturday 15th June Sherwood Fishery Holmedale (Skellydale).

    Couldn't agree more with your comments about the venue. Sue has done a cracking job and is a lovely person. Will be complete when the Cafe and tackle shop are up and running.
