  • James maude angling club sherwood fishery holmedale lake


    Saturday August 1st 2020 Sherwood Fishery Skellydale

    Weather: Bright start to the day, with strong gusty winds and the odd shower, staying warm.

    SOLAR ECLIPSE of August 1, 2008

    A total solar eclipse occurred on Friday, August 1, 2008. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface.

    The Origin Of ‘Calm Before The Storm’

    The phrase ‘calm before the storm’ likely originates from a weather phenomenon. That is, sometimes there is a serene period that comes shortly before a storm hits. You may have experienced this for yourself before. While outside, dark clouds fill the sky. Yet, things appear tranquil—no wind is blowing, no rain is falling; the air is still and quiet. It even looks as though the birds have packed up and left.

    However, not long after, the wind suddenly picks up and heavy rainfall begins. Indeed, that peaceful time is over and now a hefty storm has arrived! This sort of occurrence in the weather is applied figuratively to other situations. More specifically, situations that have a calm period that leads into a louder, more chaotic period.

    Okay, so how old is this expression? It was in use hundreds of years ago, so quite old I’d say. For example, this phrase makes an appearance in the play The Dumb Knight, written by Lewis Machin and Gervase Markham, around 1601:

    Well the Merry Men of Maude we’re back on home territory once again as Skellydale awaits their arrival. But the Lull before the storm was put in reverse as the overnight heavy thunderstorms bought very heavy rains, making for low oxygen levels across the fisheries, resulting in lower than normal catch weights. The low pressures this combined with the high pressure as 22 of James Maudes Ac’s finest ambled down the bumpy track to the very well now organised rolling draw. A steady stream of eagerly waiting anglers with heads full of tactics for the days adventure ahead. First compliment of the day goes to Kim Pearson for the crack of dawn catering with the finest Bacon & Egg Cob and her deliveroo boy Dave. The lads really appreciate your commitment.

    We talk about the lull before the storm in many a context, but today’s encounter on Skellydale there was only one angler that eclipsed the rest of the field with a storming long pole shallow performance, catching from the off fishing tight to the mini island on peg 45, Gary Summerscales eclipsed the rest of the squad as he took his third win of the season with 148lb-15oz. Well done Gary. Second place and his first podium place for a while was Gary Butcher pegged on 28 taking 91lb-2oz to the scales. Well done Butch. So with Garyies 1&2 it was a Billy taking the third place as a frustrating day ensued with carbon crunching from peg 41, Billy amassed a steady weight catching shallow and down the edge to finish up with 88lb-12oz. Well done Billy. Once again our Top Tip specialist Mr Brian Cox showed he’s not a one trick pony. Taking Carp on the tip and pole for his fifth fourth place of the season, Brian weighed a commendable 82lb-12oz from peg 36. Well done Brian.

    So following the previous days stormy encounters the Skellydale lake fished rather well with one outstanding weight followed by some very good backup weights. Well done to all for your punctuality and assistance with the weigh in.

    Next match Saturday August 8th Portland Waters Canal Lake.
