    James Maude Angling Club Springvale


    Saturday 4th August 2019

    Weather: Dry start to the day, overcast with a slight breeze, warm & dry.


    William Cavendish, 1st Duke of Newcastle upon Tyne (6 December 1592 – 25 December 1676) was an English polymath and aristocrat, having been a poet, equestrian, playwright, swordsman, politician, architect, diplomat and soldier. He was born into the wealthy Cavendish family at Hands worth in the West Riding of Yorkshire; it had a good relationship with the ruling Stuart monarchy and began to gain prominence after he was invested as a Knight of the Bath, and then inherited his father's Northern England estates.

    Henry Pelham Fiennes Pelham-Clinton, 4th Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne KG (31 January 1785 – 12 January 1851) was a British nobleman and politician who played a leading part in British politics in the late 1820s and early 1830s. He was styled Lord Clinton from birth until 1794 and Earl of Lincoln between 1794 and 1795.

    On his return to England in 1807, he entered on life with many personal advantages, and with a considerable fortune. He married at Lambeth, 18 July 1807, a great heiress, Georgiana Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Miller Mundy of Shipley, Derbyshire. He served as Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire from 1809 to 1839 and was also Steward of Sherwood Forest and of Folewood Park. In 1812 he was made a Knight of the Garter.

    And so following the arrival of the 4th Duke of Newcastle some 184 years prior to the James Maude Angling Club taking to the banks, the name has become synonymous with Springvale Fishery. Springvale Fishing Lakes at Bevercotes, Nottinghamshire are uniquely set in 100 acres, with tranquil surroundings and picturesque landscape, as the woodland area creates a rural haven for peace and quiet. A Big thank you to the owner Sue Bloom who has a vision to make this the best fishery in the country, and she is well on the way. Thank you Sue for all your help.

    The Duke Lake takes its name from the former land owner The 4th Duke of Newcastle, Henry Pelham-Clinton. It was this lake that the James Maude faithful with pegs 15 to 34 would endeavour to fill their nets. So who would be crowned King of the Duke, Well that honour fell to the fourth match win on the trot Gary Summerscales pegged on 32 Gary took 109lb of silverfish and topped this off with Carp caught down the edge late on to boost his weight to 157lb-3oz. Well done Gary. A little side bet of a Cheese & Beetroot cob did enough to encourage Roger Summerscales and Dave Lilliman pegged on 28 & 29 to battle it out in a monkey see monkey do scenario with the Cheese & Beetroot Cob falling into the hands of Roger Summerscales with 102lb-5oz from peg 29 Well done Roger. Third place went to Dave Lilliman pegged on 28 with 88lb-1oz. Well done Dave.

    Today also saw the semi final of the Terry Cheeseman Individual knockout competition sponsored by Andy Wootton Jones Float maker. This was contested between Roger Summerscales, Tony Smith, and Paul Skeldon with the lowest weight being eliminated.

    So it’s a well-done done to Roger Summerscales (102lb-5oz and Tony Smith (67lb-15oz) with the top two weights through to the final. Match to be arranged.

    Today’s results are as follows:

    Gary Summerscales 157lb-3oz peg 32
