Mick Hill excelled on first of recent visits to Pedrera.

ABBEY ANGLING

This week?s open match was fished on the Embalsa de Pedrera on the 9th August.? All the matches that are now going to be fished at Pedrera have been officially booked with the Valencia Federation. This is only the second match that has been fished here in approximately three years; hopefully with the bait going in the fish will start to congregate on the edges of the lake and fishing will improve.
Once again the dirty picnicers and pleasure fishermen have left all their rubbish behind, in carrier bags and bottles and cans etc just thrown on the bank, last Saturday there were two Russians fishing with nine rods out, why are the Petrona not doing anything about it? Fish were hard to come by with seven dry nets, but Mick Hill excelled with the top spot of five Carp and one Barbel taken on the feeder using corn, Well Done!, there was no Bleak showing at all.

1st Mick Hill with 6.260kgs fishing the feeder using corn
2nd Bill Reade with 5.220kgs fishing the waggler and straight lead with hemp and tares
3rd Danny Kerkhof with 3.560kgs fishing the feeder using pellet

We fished our first open match of August at the El Bosquet Complex on the 2nd August.
Considering there are now no club matches in August due to the excess heat, there was a very good turn-out, and a good days fishing was enjoyed by everyone.

We fished the 10th and final match of the Summer Series at the river Segura on the 26th July. There was only one double figure weight and unfortunately four dry nets, which you would not expect for this time of the year, the only thing everyone seemed to be catching plenty of was the Terrapins!!

This week?s final 14th round of the Summer Series was fished on the river Segura at Murcia on the 27th July.
By the state of the river and the rubbish still floating down, they have definitely not finished the dredging as yet and the fishing is still hard going. Richard Wood made it a double by taking the top spot again today and fishing the method feeder using corn.

2nd Terry Screen with 9.600kgs fishing the method using bread
3rd Bill Reade with 9.200kgs fishing the method using corn

Points were tight for the cup with only a couple of points separating the top four, but the overall winners of the Summer Series best 9 from 14 matches were:

FIRST T Screen with 19points
SECOND B Reade with 22points
THIRD L Bolton with 23points

We fished the 8th round of the Summer Series at the El Bosquet Complex on the 12th July.
The match record for this water has now been smashed with a catch of 38.700kgs taken on the monkey using bread and pellet, that is 6kgs better than the previous record and of course the man who broke it is the one and only Lennie Bolton (well done)
Richard King also had a notable catch of 26.220kgs to take second place; this water is now fishing really well with all the anglers catching in the match. The method feeder is now producing fish.

The 12th round of the Summer Series was fished on the river Segura at Murcia on the 13th July.
At last the water seems to be clearing a little bit, and there was very few reeds and debris floating down, perhaps they have now finished working above which is making the feeder fishing much easier.
Fish are still hard to come by, with very few Bleak being caught, and just six fish needed to take top spot

1st Terry Screen with 7.900kgs fishing the method feeder using bread and corn
2nd Bill Reade with 6.500kgs fishing the method feeder using bread and corn

The 7th round of the Summer Series was fished on the river Segura at Murcia on the 5th July.
The weights were down here from last week?s match, with the top weights just making double figures.
Marlene Hutchinson taking top spot proving that she can compete with the top anglers, I must stop giving her any more tuition, as she is getting too good. The small fish and the Bleak are in very short supply at present, with only the bigger fish responding.
There is a rumour that the water here will be restocked in September, as a large Spanish Competition is due to be fished here, we hope so?

The water here is now fishing well, with everyone in the match catching fish, and the fish responding well to all baits with the pole being the dominate method.
The Mullet are a bit of a pest as they are hard to hook, but when you do get one it is usually a good one and is around half a kilo plus in weight.

The 6th round of the Summer Series was fished at the Embalsa de Argos on the 28th June.
The water levels are now receding rapidly, and with the hot weather now here the fish are responding to the paste. The hoards of Barbel that where caught earlier on in the year, now seem to be reluctant to feed up in the water, but the small Carp that where a menace last year, have now grown into half pound fish which can now be caught on the paste.

It looks as if they are still working on the water above the Town centre, as lots of rafts of reeds and debris is coming down the river, and the water has still got the milky grey colour to it. Match reports from last week showed the venue to be fishing very poor with hardly any weights and just a couple of kilos winning the match as it turned out it was not a very good day for us anglers either. Dave Hutchinson had an excellent weight, but for the rest of us it was very poor for the time of year with four dry nets, mine being one of them.

The 4th round of the Summer Series was fished on the river Segura on the 14th June.
With no recent rain there is still plenty of water with a strong flow on it. The method to use here is the lollipop with floats taking up to 6grams, feeder on the pole or rod, and the Terrapins are now very active with one angler managing to net fourteen in the first hour. Dave Hutchinson seems to have the method here cracked with two wins off the two matches fished here.

Sue Swann excelled herself with a net of over 12kgs taken on the feeder; she also lost some big fish. Fish were caught on all types of bait, being corn, maggot, bread and paste, with the pole the dominate method.

P.S: Are you the dirty fisherman who fished peg 12 on the oblong last week, and left 2 empty sweet corn tins and a beer can in the reeds by the waters edge.
If so SHAME ON YOU!! With a litter bin less than 10 yards away from you. Please take more care of the environment and pick up your rubbish.

Also I do not know the full facts as yet, but rumours have it that over 100,000 people attended last week?s rally in Madrid organized by the Spanish Federation, and that the motion passed by the environmentalists to eradicate all non indigenous species of fish from the waters in Spain has been over-ruled and squashed.
We trust this is correct and await confirmation of this from the Spanish federation in due course.

What a good turn out with twenty anglers fishing, must be a sign of the better weather arriving.
There was quite a lot of flow on the river, it was either the rain or compensation water with a lot of debris in it, but as there was only two dry nets it was a really good day. Baits on the day seemed to be sweet corn

We fished the 10th and final round of the Spring Series on the river Segura at Murcia on the 17th May. The water now seems to be returning to its natural colour, and the milkiness is now dissipating. Richard King just needed a few points in this final match to clinch the cup, which he did. The fish had other things on their mind; they were crashing and banging in the margins in full spawning mode. The feeder and corn still seems to be the in method, but going for the Bleak is a waste of time as the Carp weights are increasing.
