''OUR PREMIER FISHERY''

 

2013/14 Old News Items

 

POSTED: 28th December 2013.

 

URGENT INFORMATION

 

Firstly I wish to take this opportunity to wish you and your families all the very best for 2014.  The past year has been challenging but some positives have come out of it the first being the acquisition of ''Heron Pool'' which I am sure will become a very popular fishery when it opens to members on the 16th June. The second is the creation of a new website that started well but overtime became a disaster for many reasons the upshot being we had to start from scratch again.  As a result it has taken a lot longer than expected but I am now pleased to be able to report we have a brand new live Website with new domain address i.e. www.southmanchesteranglingclub.co.uk.  This should be copied and pasted into your browser then ‘’Bookmarked’’ or saved to your ‘’Favourites’’ so you can easily find it in the future.  

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE THE OLD smac.org.uk ADDRESS IS DELETED IN ITS ENTIRETY FROM YOUR SYSTEM. The reason for this is that some members have been connecting to our new website via a link inserted on the old one. Please avoid doing this in future because they benefit from the number of hits to their website pushing them up the (SEO) Search Engine Optimisation rankings and ‘'South Manchester Angling Club –The Original'' down!  Something I am sure none of us wish to happen. Plenty of work is still required transferring content and making it work properly that will be done ASAP, in the meantime I will continue posting news items and anything else club related. Members should start by familiarising themselves with the new one and if they wish use the ‘’Forum’’ which you will firstly need to enter your details before it can be used.  

 

It is worth noting by the membership that the all new website belongs to South Manchester Angling Club and its members, unlike the old .org.uk that a previously trusted club official offered to create on behalf of the club then believed it belonged to him?????.  Those reading this should know the domain name and hosting was ALL paid for in full out of THE CLUBS FUNDS but said person refuses to release the clubs property back to the Original Club and its membership.  The new website is the result of this unfortunate episode that members can be assured will never happen again. I trust those viewing and knowing what the old one looked like would agree the new one is by far a much more professional looking website.

 

As a member you are encouraged to use and if possible provide ideas on how it can be improved that you can be assured will be welcomed.

"IMPORTANT MEETING FOR MEMBERS LIVING IN AND AROUND KNUTSFORD"

The officers and committee have agreed it’s time to hold a General Meeting in Knutsford for members living in and around the town that have not been able to attend those previously arranged in Manchester.  The venue is "The Legh Arms" Brook St, Knutsford, WA16 8EB, Tel: 01565 651226. Date: Monday 5th August 2013, start 8pm prompt.

 

We are aware most members will not have had the opportunity to meet the committee previously so firstly we intend to have a get to know you session. This should be seen as an opportunity to say hello and introduce ourselves so when we do meet in the future we can at least put a name to a face. Many changes have taken place over the last 12 months including splitting the club into two completely separate entities so this will be the committee’s opportunity to explain reasons why and how this came about. To get through as much as possible we also intend to have a question and answer session so members can raise any issues they might have. In addition the committee does have a number of important issues to discuss that hopefully on the night can be resolved. Finally members will be given an update on our plans to improve our Green Lane & Moss Lane fishery complexes. Members are asked to bring their current membership cards with them.

The clubs officers and committee rely on members to tell us whether you agree or disagree with what we are doing so it is in your interest to attend what will be the first of many meetings for members living in the area.

*SPONSORS/PARTNERS REQUIRED*

If you or family members have your own business you cannot afford to miss this opportunity! Current austerity measures are hurting everyone and for a very small outlay we can help you!    

The club knows the benefits advertising can have after a very successful program over the last 9-10 months that has helped to more than double membership numbers.

One important consideration of advertising is firstly cost then content and finally making sure it is targeted at the right type of potential clients.  What better then to have a readymade growing database of customers/club members their extended family and friends all of who could be potential clients. The club intends to make this available by advertising on the clubs website and in material for a one off 12 month price that when compared with advertising elsewhere is miniscule. All adverts will be for a minimum period of 12 months starting at the low price of £25 for one sized 85 x 40mm.  Adverts can be designed to include a logo text and contact details. Those with a website can also pay a small additional fee to have a built in auto-link. Advertisers if they wish will be allowed to offer a discount to club members as an incentive to use their services.

 

Interested parties should contact the secretary who will be pleased to discuss pricing and answer any queries you may have.  Do not miss out give me a call or send an email for details and pricing.

"ALAN CAWLEY ROSE BOWL SERIES"

4TH & FINAL MATCH

The final match for the Alan Cawley Rose Bowl trophy concluded on Wednesday 10th July with another excellent turnout and Charlie Mathews yet again taking the honour's winning by a significant margin over Ian Henderson in second and Roy Mills a Knutsford local taking a well deserved third. This means Charlie with three  out of four wins plus a second is the clear winner of the Alan Cawley Rose Bowl trophy for 2013.  I am sure all members will agree it was deserved after what overall was a superb performance. After the match I was given the honour of presenting him with the trophy outside the Swan Hotel and later sampled some liquid refreshment with  members who fished the series to celebrate and toast him winning. I know Alan “if he was looking down” would have had a big smile on his face and very proud of him winning it. The trophy will now be looked after by Charlie until we fish for it again next year, in the meantime we intend to have it engraved with his name and year he won it. Also following inspection we will check cost of refurbishing the inside where most of the silver plating has been removed through excessive cleaning whilst in the possession of members in the match section.  I have to say the comments received by those who fished the series made this a memorable and very satisfying event especially for Bruce and me who between us have worked very hard since we split to get the club back and resembling in a small way how it used to be many years ago. We see this as just a start that you can be sure will be repeated along with other events in the near future.  Finally before I finish let me on behalf of the officers and committee of the club say a big thanks to all those who contributed in making this an enjoyable match series and important social event for South Manchester Angling Club.

"3RD ALAN CAWLEY ROSE BOWL MATCH"

The weather for all the matches to-date has been surprisingly good considering how it was prior to us starting the series and was again for the latest one on Wednesday evening. Attendance again was excellent with a couple of additional members turning up wishing to join in on the action. This obviously means others are beginning to show an interest in what the club is doing that can only  benefit all concerned in the future. The clubs officers and committee are keen to keep the momentum going and welcome ideas from members.

 

The latest match started in earnest and very quickly fish of many types were being netted and put in member’s keep nets other than one or two double figure carp that again avoided capture by shedding the hook before they could be netted frustrating those who hooked them. Once again lots of Tench put in an appearance and surprisingly figured in just about all of the catches weighed at the end of the match. Whether the reason for them showing so much is the result of reducing the weed growth with the Dyofix or other reason we just do not know but I am sure those who have been catching them have found their appearance welcome. The clear winner yet again was my old mucker Charlie Mathews who managed to attract with a cocktail of worm and maggot some of the better sized Tench that when put on the scales made him the clear winner on the night. Surprisingly and I say this because match fishing is not favoured by our Chairman Andy (Bruce) Wemyss who prefers instead to concentrate on catching specimen fish but showed on the night he can mix it with others managing a creditable 2nd place followed closely by Jimmy Derbyshire in 3rd by a few oz. The good news is that just about everybody caught fish although one or two decided at the end of the match for whatever reason not to weigh what they caught.

 

Afterwards those who did not have to hurry home to keep (the-other-arve-happy) or with work commitments took the opportunity to once again visit the Swan Hotel for some welcome liquid refreshment have a chat enjoy the banter and friendship of the other members. This series of matches has grown in popularity the result I believe of members having the opportunity to compete alongside other like minded pleasure anglers and it being a social event rather than just another fishing match!

 

PS. MEMBERS ARE REMINDED THE 4TH AND FINAL MATCH FOR THE ALAN CAWLEY TROPHY WILL BE HELD WEDNESDAY 10TH JULY 2013.

"2ND ALAN CAWLEY ROSE BOWL MATCH"

The second match in the series took place as planned and again was well attended with only one person missing the result of a hospital appointment. Fishing bread for the first hour was observed but unfortunately did not produce so one has to doubt whether it is a viable bait to use for a short period of time. Then there were those who bothered to take maggot and immediately started to catch Tench, Roach, Rudd & Perch whilst others had to sit in the hope one of the many resident carp would take their sweetcorn, pellet or boilie offerings.  As it happened they also decided to go for the maggot resulting in many lost fish because of the small hooks and low breaking strain bottoms being used. One such person who experienced this was Andy Topham who firstly lost a good Tench and then within minutes of the all out a decent Mirror Carp. My evening was a disaster from the start the result of an almost unfishable peg underneath an Oak tree that had branches sticking out in every direction making casting and retrieving tackle almost impossible. In addition I was minus any maggots deciding instead to use alternative baits to attract the better quality fish that on the night did not show. The good news was that overall the weights showed a marked improvement on what was caught on the 1st match that hopefully will continue to the end of the series. The worthy winner on the night was Ian Henderson with more than double what Charlie Mathews in second place put on the scales followed closely in third by Andy Topham.

I must after not saying anything in my last match report say a very big thanks to the donkey, sorry 'Jacko' for carrying all my tackle to and from my peg. The evening finished with the customary visit to the Swann for some liquid refreshment and the usual story telling about the ones that got away, or in my case those that never came anywhere near my hook bait.  The good news is that once again those who attended appeared to enjoy the competition and good hearted banter in the pub afterwards.  I am sure everybody there would like to see this repeated in the near future and if possible expanded to include some other challenging waters that I am sure given enough members interest will happen.

PS. MEMBERS ARE REMINDED THE NEXT MATCH IN THE SERIES WILL BE HELD NEXT WEDNESDAY 3RD JULY 2013.

"1ST ALAN CAWLEY ROSE BOWL MATCH"

The first of the 4 match competition for the Alan Cawley Rose Bowl got underway on the evening of Wednesday 19th June and was attended by a good number of enthusiastic members all of who I am pleased to say thoroughly enjoyed the competition. This continued afterwards in the Swann Hotel in what turned out to be a social event with those who attended taking the opportunity to get to know other members, enjoy some light hearted banter and a smallish quantity of liquid refreshment to make the evening more memorable. The larger fish on the evening decided not to play ball probably the result of disturbance by anglers getting to pegs, setting up and earlier grass mowing done on this occasion by John Holland which must have taken him several hours to complete considering he also did the path from the gate and parking area along the lane. I have to say he did an excellent job and the clubs officials would like to express there sincere thanks for his efforts that I have to say made the fishery look superb.

 

The match started in earnest with everyone following the rules that meant fishing with traditional rod & line and bread on the hook for the 1st hour. Most caught something although the larger specimens decided not to show making the weigh in much tighter than expected. The winner on the evening turned out to be my old mucker Charlie Mathews on Peg 14 with a mixed bag of Rudd, Roach & Perch, second place went to Jimmy Derbyshire on Peg 6 catching similar stamp of fish but unfortunately not as many, third place was taken by Mike Harrison our Treasurer on Peg 12 on the recently cleared field bank with a similar mixed catch. All positions at this stage of the competition although important are to some extent irrelevant with the winner being the one with the best points average after all the matches have been fished and points calculated. For my part the evening did not get off to a very good start after leaving my glasses at home and as a result struggling to setup my tackle. Then John Holland turned up to watch proceedings and not having seen him for sometime I spent what must have been the best part of an hour or more speaking to him. Then before I knew it the match was over before I had even got going, hence the lack of fish to weigh in, that is my excuse anyway. I am not to worried at this stage with there being 3 more matches before the competition is over.

Many of the older members are pleased to get this competition underway which we  intend to repeat in the future. In addition it is our intention to look at the possibility of holding some matches on more challenging “Natural Venues” such as rivers, lakes or reservoirs. This though will depend on enough members showing an interest and more importantly willing to cover any cost incurred. One thing you can be assured of “Commercial Fisheries” will not be considered.

"UPDATE 9th JUNE WORK PARTY"

Considering this was called at very short notice the turnout was not bad but could have been much better if more members living in the Knutsford area had bothered to attend. Most of what we were unable to complete on the work party the week before was done and the improvements are there for all to see. I am pleased to be able to confirm we now have two additional bailiffs who will assist Kevin who has been busy of late with business commitments. I am sure these guys will ensure the place is kept tidy and that only genuine club members fish there.  One other bit of good news is that one of our members kindly donated a petrol powered hedge trimmer with two attachments and on Sunday a Lawnmower.  Both of these will be put to good use on future work parties and I am sure all of you along with me wish to sincerely thank him for his kindness.    

 

One final thing to report, under normal circumstances this would cause me to use very strong language and is yet again the amount of rubbish that people are leaving at Green Lane including plastic water bottles, food containers, drink cans and sweetcorn tins plus paper/plastic wrappings of all descriptions. Some of which I found thrown under the hedge adjacent to the foot path leading to the lane that was less than 10 Mtrs from the rubbish bag in Green Lane. A major concern to me and officers of the club was that cattle were grazing in the adjacent field and could easily have reached through and eaten these items resulting in possible death or serious injury to the animal. The consequences of which could have resulted in the loss of the fishery for the club and important leisure facility for the membership. The rest of the rubbish found was in the debris pile made up of branches and other materials removed/collected during work parties that is located between the front and back pool waiting to be burnt.  This is NOT I repeat NOT a rubbish dump for those who cannot take their rubbish home or be bothered to put it in the rubbish sack in the lane opposite the entrance. Tins do not burn and at some point have to be picked up by a caring angler/member who then does what you should have done which is to take it home or put it in the bin sack provided. Those identified and proved responsible will have their membership terminated with immediate effect.  Members with any information about who is doing this should contact the secretary.  Persons coming forward with information can be assured their identity will be protected at all times.

"IGNORING CLUB RULES"

Rules are made for many reasons firstly the benefit of members secondly the result of negotiations and agreements with the fishery and/or riparian land owners.  To ignore them is viewed as being very serious by club officers and committee and could result in members having their membership cancelled.

During this weekend's work party and whilst enjoying our bacon butties we were interrupted by an irate farmer in his tractor complaining about vehicles blocking the field gates in Moss Lane.  This surprised us firstly because club waters are closed on work party dates until finished. This was brought to an end quickly by the chairman and myself visiting Moss Lane to find out who the culprits were.  Both just happened to be new members and when confronted soon realised their mistake over parking but said they did not know about the waters being closed on work parties dates.  It all ended amicably and the new members joined in on the work party and did some sterling work.

Members should not need reminding to not under any circumstances block field gates.

"UPDATE WORK PARTY SUNDAY 2ND JUNE 2013"

Those who bothered to attend did an excellant job and deserve a big thank you from me and the clubs officers. We had hoped to split into two groups if enough had attended but this was not possible so the work was concentrated on Green Lane. A good start was made on constructing the gate next to the cattle drink and a lot of clearance of shrubs brambles including a dead tree along the field bank was done that will allow many more new pegs to be built in the future. The steeper part of banking was also mostly cleared of brambles and a number of stakes was inserted as markers in readiness for Scottish Power returning to plant the replacement trees promised. Some of the guys did manage to find time to visit our Moss Lane/Crookalls fishery to apply another application of the Bentonite sealant.  

Special word of thanks must go to George Clayton Jnr who turned up with a petrol hedge cutter with not one but two cutting attachments that he kindly donated to the club that will be put to good use maintaining the hedges around the clubs fisheries in the near future. This person says he is hopeful of acquiring a petrol lawnmower that he will also donate to the club and loan us a 4 ton Tirfor puller that will be very handy when we come to remove the large branch from the pool next to the cottage. I have just one other thing to say about this person that being if you ever need a one man work party then this is your man. He eventually left for home much the worse for wear with scratches and cuts to his hands arms and face that made him look like he had been dragged through barbed wire never mind brambles.  

We will expect those who for whatever reason could not attend this one to be on the next one!

Members to note; we do now keep an attendance record!

Fishery Update.

Green Lane, anyone visiting will be hard pressed not to notice the improvements thatPete Ralphs has made to most of the pegs including cutting the grass planting of ferns and small trees to improve the area along the right hand bank after Scottish Power removed a large number of the trees. Obviously he is keen to make the place look attractive again not just for himself but all members and on behalf of the officers and committee we would take this opportunity to sincerely thank him for his efforts.  

Hopefully other members will appreciate the improvements this person has made and will  offer to help themselves on future work parties to maintain and improve the club fisheries for the benefit of all members.
