Staunton Court 14 pegs

Another trip up the m5 this week to deepest Gloucestershire and a visit to Staunton court fishery. Now when you think of commercial fisherys and the proverbial puddle Staunton court is right up there, being a smallish square lake with one whole bank made of concrete flanked by industrial units it sure ain't pretty!! but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in a healthy stock of hard fighting carp and an abundance of silver fish usually resulting in a good fishing match.


With Steve on his annual clubbing holiday to Ibiza with the local YMCA it was left to docks legend and serial piss taker Alan Healy to sort out proceedings and with fourteen fishing it was decided on a top four pay out no silverpool.......seeemples

On to the fishing and with Lionel Legge cleaning out the golden peg last week at Harescombe and with the club not visting the fishery for a fair while no one was really sure what a good draw would be. One thing for sure tho with the size and nature of the lake there would be no hiding place and everyone could see who was catching what which usually means one thing.....banter!!

The match started fairly quiet with not a lot caught early doors, I drew peg 7 which was on the bottom bank and had misgivings about the peg as from previous experience I know this area can be very much feist of famine, I actually started well i'd planned a pellet shallow attack and when the whistle went and shipping out to thirteen metres I reached over for the catapult just in time to see the end of the pole slam in to the water as a 6lber hung itself, next put in same thing again unfortunately this one came off and even more unfortunate was I never had another bite for a hour and a half!

Elsewhere slowly a few people started to put weights together and the concrete bank seemed to be the place to be, Kev Jefferies on peg five started to get a few fishing paste at 6-7 metres.

kev in action!

Next to him on four was Daiwa poster boy and all round good egg Will Dearlove and he was putting together a decent weight fishing meat short although he had abit of a mare losing rigs to unseen snags, up on the top bank on pegs 13-14 both Rich Britton and big Col Elaway were catching a few, Rich on banded 8mm pellet on the deck at 5metres and Col doing similar but fishing catmeat. over on peg 3 middle of the concrete bank tho was where most of the action was taking place as Chris Gay seemed to have it sorted with a steady run of carp coming to the net, Chris chose a caster attack feeding around eight pints and caught well in both margins infact he done enough to win the match bringing a very creditable 154lb 5oz to the scales which included 12lb of skimmers.

winner on the day

second with 140lb 5oz was Rich Britton


third with 124lb 7oz was Will Dearlove

fourth and last in the frame was Col Eleway with 115lb 10oz, apologies to Col as I thought Kev Jefferies came fourth so didn't get a pic of Cols catch so your have to make do with a pic of Kev with his fifth place catch of 114lb 11oz.
