PDAS 24 Hour Carp Social/Match Aug 15th

 Thursday 23 July 2015 - 12:53:17 | Dave

This event is held every year with the sole aim of raising money for local charities, and to date has raised a fair amount of cash for some very worthy causes. The aim this year is to raise money for the children’s ward at The Queen Alexander Hospital. Unfortunately the event this year was looking threatened by the problems that we had been having at Lakeside; however the news from Lakeside is looking good so this event is likely to go ahead as planned. The 24 Hour is listed as a Carp Match, however most who fish this event do so with the aim of raising money and having a good social. There is no requirement to stay the 24hrs and you may come and go at your leisure within the 24hr period. We also set up a BBQ area on the lake so you can bring down some burgers etc and have a bit of food and a chat before fishing. The plan for the day is as follows -

Draw 12pm
BBQ 12 – 3
Fish 3pm 15th Aug to 3pm 16th Aug

Entry Fee for the 24hr is £10.00 (all goes to charity).

For more info please contact me or ask any questions on the forum. I hope to see you there!

John Dine
Match Secretary

The River Open Season is nearly upon us!

 Monday 15 June 2015 - 08:21:38 | Dave

Everything is ready on the Hamble for the start of the season tomorrow. The fish are very active and should provide some good sport. The recent EA survey shows we have some superb fish in the river and they've not seen a bait for 3 months!

Some tips for the new season:

- Travel light and don't be afraid to move. There is a lot of water to cover and swims have been cleared right down to the railway viaduct so take some time to explore the river.
- A stealthy approach is necessary when the water is clear; use the natural cover and don't cast a shadow on the water.
- Maggots work well but don't be afraid to step up to bread, sweetcorn or worms. We have some big chub in the river now.
- Long grass means wellies or waders to avoid getting wet in mornings and evenings
