1. The starting and finishing times for the match must be prominently displayed at match headquarters and on all literature relating to the match.

2. The recommended duration for a contest shall be five hours.

3. The match must be a pegged down competition. Pegs, preferably twenty yards apart and not less than fifteen yards, must be staked out and numbered prior to fishing. All pegs used under normal conditions must be of a state to give competitors a practicable and reasonable chance to fish his or her swim.

4. All officials participating in the organisation of the match must wear some kind of insignia, ie an armband, as clear evidence of their authority.

5. Each competitor on drawing his/her number shall proceed to the corresponding number on the bank and this will be considered his/her fishing ground where he/she will fish. The peg must remain in position until the weigh-in is completed.

6. Every competitor must fish from within one metre either side of his/her designated peg. On flowing water, the competitor may fish in the direction of the flow as far as the next peg. On still water, he/she may fish as far as half the distance between his/her peg and the pegs on either side. Where competitors are drawn on opposite banks, the limit of the swim is the line midway between each bank. The competitor will restrict their activities completely to these boundaries, neither his/her person, his/her tackle, his/her hookbaits or groundbaits may intrude into his/her neighbours swim. In an extreme situation eg snagged tackle of a snagged fish, an angler must seek permission from his/her neighbour/s before moving from his/her designated peg to try and remedy the situation. MODEL MATCH RULES Effective from 1st January 2009 A competitor must not cause annoyance to, or seek to interfere with another competitor or use mobile phones during the course of the competition, and must act in a sporting manner at all times.

7. No competitor may move his/her peg or exchange his/her peg or draw card with another without the organiser’s official consent.

8. No competitor shall buy more than one entry ticket for himself/herself from which it follows that all competitors must be strictly restricted to one draw.

9. Competitors must retain all fish in keepnets which comply with the relevant EA Byelaws. Competitors must take every practicable step to keep their fish alive and, after weighing them, must ensure their careful return to the water. If, for any reason fish are seen to be in distress, a competitor or match official has the right to demand that they be weighed immediately and returned to the water during the course of the match.

10. A competitor shall have in use one rod or pole, one line and one single hook at one time, but may have other rods or poles and tackle assembled for use in position behind him/her, if possible, providing that no such other tackles are baited.

11. Any bait, subject to local rules, can be used except live or dead fish, frogs spinning baits or artificial lures.

12. No competitor shall have live or dead fish in his/her possession before a match. All competitors must submit to a search if requested by a contest official.

13. Before the starting signal no competitor must on any account groundbait or loose feed the swim but will be allowed to wet a line, plumb the depth and test the float, mix and wt groundbait, clear his/her ground of weed or obstructions and position his/her equipment. On no account must a feeder be used before the starting signal. A ledger weight may be cast to find depth and distance etc, but a no time must the line be left in the water whilst continuing to set up other tackle.

14. Competitors may receive assistance to or from their peg, or both, for themselves or their tackle, or both.

15. All groundbait may be thrown in by hand, or by use of one or two handed catapults, throwing sticks, swim feeders, bait droppers and bait cups, but no other mechanical means of projecting groundbait is allowed.

23. Keepnets should be dry when arriving to fish as dry nets do not spread disease. Fish must never be handled with gloves or towels.

24. Carp over 5lbs and silver fish must be kept in separate nets . no more than 40lbs in a net . Common Sense must prevail when net weights are verified.

25. No bait, equipment or information can be given to any competitor during the course of the match. Competitors withdrawing from the match are not allowed to give their groundbait or hookbait to or approach another competitor during the duration of a match.

26. Any competitor who abandons his/her peg having decided to cease taking part in the match but who decides to continue fishing must do so outside the confines of the length being used for the match.

27. All competitors shall, as far as possible, prevent any persons other than match officials from entering the fishing ground.

28. A competitor may wade provided that the water does not extend above the knees unless he/she can touch the bank with fingertips, in which case the water can extend above the knees. When platforms are used, the water must not come over the knees when standing on a river / lake bed.

29. No competitor shall leave his/her peg at any time during the course of the match other than to answer the call of nature and then he/she must not leave his/her baited hook in the water.

Any competitor so detailed must have a witness to the weighing of his/her own catch.

30. A competitor must cease fishing at the finishing signal. Should he/she still be playing a fish hooked before the signal is given, he/she will be permitted no more than fifteen minutes after time has been called to land the fish.

31. All fish caught are eligible for weighing with the exception of game fish and crustaceans. It will be the responsibility of the scalesman to return all live fish to the water after weighing. Dead fish, handed to the competitor by the scalesman, must be returned after the match, to the headquarters by the competitor concerned and placed in the receptacle provided. Any fish suspected of being weighted or any fish considered suspicious by the weighers must be laid before the match organisers and the angler’s weight be not confirmed until a ruling has been obtained. If stewards recommended the disqualification of a competitor they will weigh his/her fish in case the ruling is not upheld.

32. All catches will be weighed to the nearest quarter of an ounce or ten grammes rounded up.

33. Each competitor will be responsible for ensuring the correct weight of their catch is recorded by the Steward and sign the sheet to that effect. In any dispute the decision of the weighers and the organisers will be final.

34. All fish must be weighed at the competitor’s peg. Unless the bankside terrain renders impossible, no catch shall be carried more than ten yards to the scales.

35. Competitors are responsible for ensuring that their pegs are clear of litter and no competitor may have his/her catch weighed in who has litter lying on the banks of his/her swim.

36. Any objection to an angler’s conduct, for whatever reason, must be lodged in writing with a match official or weigher within one hour of the end of the match. In all cases the objector shall inform the offender of his/her intentions at the time in order that he/she may speak in his/her own defence. Should an offender after receiving such a warning leave the match scene, the objection shall be deemed to have been sustained and the match organisers must inform him/her of their findings and punishment (if any) within seven days.

37. All the foregoing rules are subject to the byelaws of the Environment Agency, and any local rules applicable to a fishery.

38. All holders of trophies must, on presentation of them, give a written guarantee for their safety and shall undertake to return same (when applicable) in a clean and presentable condition when asked by the organisers. In the case of a team trophy, all members of that team are obliged under this rule.

40. Any association or organisation wishing to deviate from these recommended Angling Trust rules must advertise the fact and list the deviation on the match entry ticket and other literature.

41. Details of each angler making up the team must be entered on a team card (or sheet) which must be handed in before the match begins. No alterations in the make-up of a team will be permitted once the draw has begun.
42. A team competition may be decided in two ways, by means of aggregate weight or by means of points. Where the latter is preferred the Angling Trust recommend that the system to be adopted be the same as that set out in Rule 48 of the Angling Trusts Nationals Championship rules.
43. The use of lead, including any alloy or compound lead, in the form of split shot or any other suitable thing for weighting fishing lines is prohibited. The prohibition does not apply to weights of lead, alloy or compound lead, less than 28.35 grms if such lead, alloy or compound lead, is incorporated in the construction of swim feeders or self cocking floats.

The best weight of the season, recorded on Tuesday night has been beaten already, with a fine catch of Bream, Skimmers and Ide from peg 33. Kev Carr pole fished maggot and pellet for a weight of 24-12-00.

1st Kev Carr   24-12-00 (peg 33)

Tuesday May 22nd

Mike Peers won this latest round with the best weight of the season so far.

Mike drew the Jetty (peg 25) and caught a succession of good Ide and Skimmers from the off, for a weight of 24-07-00.




Pete Evans made a slow start, but caught predominantly Bream and Skimmers to 3lb on maggot, plus 8 or 9 Ide for a weight of 15-15-00, for second spot.

Pete fished peg 20 and just pipped Ken Edwards on peg 23. Ken weighed 14-06-00 and was unlucky having lost time playing a carp that he eventually lost.

Sorry no picture of Ken`s fish, Ken was taking the pictures.

Summer League no2

The 2nd match in the series, was won by Peter Evans. Pete made the most of a good draw (the Jetty) and caught a dozen small skimmers, a few Ide and 30 Roach for a total weight of 10lb 15oz.

Pete fished a 10m pole, on the bottom in 6 foot of water. Pete fed groundbait laced with squatts and fished single maggot over.

2nd John Porter 8-05-00 (peg 12)

3rd Tony Belcher 7-04-00 (peg 29)

Tony was perhaphs a little unlucky not to do better he caught a nice Barbel and a load of Roach, but lost a second Barbel at the net.


Summer League no1

Just as we were used to strong winds, heavy rain and snow, thev start of the Summer League saw a massive change in the weather with bright skies and flat calm conditions. Not the best, but never the less, weights improved considerably. It was surprisingly, the shallows hat threw up the best weights.


Graham Davidson drew the Jetty (peg 25) and fished long pole into 6 foot of water for a good net of Roach and Ide for 13lb 1oz.




Jane came second from peg 20 (the Willow). Jane fished a maggot feeder into 7 foot of water for a succession of good Ide for a weight of 9lb 12oz.


Steve Leonard came third with a weight of 6lb 7oz from peg 12. This was a mixed bag with Crucian, Ide, Roach, Ide and a Chub.

Running Line Sweepstake Sunday 24th Sept

This is probably a first for Buckley AA, such is the power and effectiveness of the Pole.

However, we thourght it worth a go. Weights were a little dissapointing with most of the pool as still as a Mill Pond.

1st Pete Evans  8-07-00 (peg 25, Waggler fished shallow)

2nd Bill Mourant 6-15-00 (peg 20, Waggler fished over groundbait)

3rd Mike Delve  5-08-00 (Slider on peg 12A)

I think it fair to say that everyone enjoyed it for a change, but also most felt they would have done much better on the Pole. Perhaps we should get some practice and do it more often. With the Winter League approaching, it was noticeable that the Feeder faired less well, and it will be interesting to see how the pool performs over this coming  series now that we have Aeration in the water.

The first match of the new season was fished in less than ideal conditions, with bright sun and flat for most of the 15 strong field.

Bill Mourant (pictured right) drew peg 23 in the shallows, probably the first time it has been fished in 6 months. Bill caught Ide, Roach and one good Crucian hybrid to take top spot with 13-02-00.

Weights are typically made up of Roach with a few Ide starting to show.

100 plus fish in a session is commonplace, and its the better quality fish that boost the weights.

Ide have been dominating the matches of late so as an experiment, we decided to run a No Ide Match, meaning that al Ide caught must be returned to the water and not weighed in. Conditions were flat and very bright, not the best.

Ladies Match Aug 30th

The Ladies match was fished on Bank Holiday Sunday. For a change, the weather was kind to us and whats more the fish turned out in numbers.

First on the day was Sue Edwards with an amazing weight of 21-05-00 of silver fish taken on pole from peg 38.

Second was Sadie Mossman with another great catch 0f 11-09-00 from peg 16. Sadie also fished the pole and caught silvers.

Third was Nikki Pearce with a similar catch of silvers weighing 8-09-00 from peg 20.

Bearing in mind that this was only a 3 hour match, the results were amazing. We finished the day off with a BBQ prepared by our Gourmet Bailiff, Brian. Well done to everyone that took part and a big thank you to those that turned out on the day to assist with the preparations.

A change in the weather and prob air pressure, made for a difficult day on the Trap. However, Jane, pictured above, made the most of things and went for bottom feeders on peg 12. She landed  7 good Barbel and a number of Roach, Crucians and Ide to run out a comfortable winner with 21-13-00.

Summer Series no 5 May 31st


The old match record was a little over 52lb, was predominantly Carp and stood for nearly 20 years.

Graham Davidson (pictured above ) caught 64lb 5oz of skimmers,Roach and Ide, fishing a groundbait feeder from peg 33. Graham actually started slowly with probably less than 3lb in the net after the first hour, but then caught steadily for the next 4 hours. So, just maybe, the new record may be beaten in the near future !

Combat Stress Charity Open  Sunday 7th Sept

This afternoon match was again well attended with 16 anglers taking part. This is a match fished annually to raise money for the very worthwhile charity, Combat Stress. The event was started many years ago by one of our own ex-servicemen, Pete Ryan, whom sadly is no longer with us. However the tradition continues in his memory and this year will see in excess of £300 raised for the charity.

A very close match, except for the winner who latched onto a few lucky Carp !! and more surprising the spread of weights around the pool. The match was fished over 4.5 hrs and the winning weight just 6lb short of the match record.

Young Rhys Ellis drew the fancied peg 33 and made no mistake. He fished an excellent match, with maggot feeder to the island for an impressive 25lb 10oz.

Mal came second with 18lb 90z from peg 22 and Graham Davison took 3rd spot with 16lb 7oz from peg 16.

Although weights were a little below the usual standard, it must be noted that 10th spot weighed in over 12lbs, just proving what an interesting and fair venue it has become.

Buckley Trap Cup  15-04-2012




Last Sunday saw the start of the Summer Series, however you could be forgiven for thinking we were still in the Winter series. There had been a very severe frost and a freezing cold wind blew strongly down the pool. As a result, it was the shelterd pegs that fared best.

1st on the day was Mike Griffiths Maike drew peg 29 at the bottom of the ramp to the sandbank and fished a straight bomb into 12 foot of water. He caught from the off and totaled 60 fish for 11-06-00.

In second spot with a fine effort, was Welsh junior, Michael Rough. Mike caught "up in the water" with a mixture of Roach and Ide for 8-06-00. Mike alternated between maggot and caster from peg 32, again from the Sandbank area.

Third was Phil catherall with 7-14-00. Phil drew peg 27 and again alternated between maggot and caster for Roach and Ide all taken from about 10 foot of water.

Pete Evans drew the fancied peg 33, but suffered from a strong wind and only managed 5-06-00 of Roach Ide and Skimmers all taken using slider tactics in 14 foot of water.

Cliff Hibbert Memorial Cup (Sunday 29th April)

This match was fished in simply awful conditions. The temperature did not get above 3 deg and it rained stair rods all day. However everyone stuck it out and went home soaking wet and frozen. I personnaly did`nt get warm till the following day.

Mike Ellis returned after a break from the water and drew peg 12. He pole fished into 14 foot of water for a catch of Roach, Perch and Ide for 4-14-0.  Justin Westbrook just pipped Mike  for second with a weight of 3-11-0 from peg 16.

The latest round was fished in less than ideal conditions, with bright sunlight and flat calm conditions for most.

Mike Griffiths chose to pick the Willow peg 20 and fished a straight lead with maggot for about 30 fish for 4-07-00. Colin Westwood was second with 3-12-00 from peg 33 and 3rd spot was shared between Brian the Bailiff on peg 16 and Pete Evans on peg 19. Both weighed in 3-05-00, but it is worth noting that, and not for the first time, Brian lost more fish than he landed. Unlucky Brian!

Summer Series Sunday 25th Sept

The final match in the Summer Series was fished today on the Trap Pool. Conditions were less than ideal with virtually no wind and flat calm conditions for a lot of anglers. Pegs with a ripple fared quite well and a respectable set of weights were recorded. 

Winner on the day was Craig Stubbins a relative stranger to the water of late. Craig drew inform peg 12 and caught a succession of Perch and Ide for a weight of 10-11-00. Craig alternated between pieces of worm and double maggot hook bait fished under the overhanging branch on the left. 

In second was Terry Rawlinson, another newcomer to the water. Terry drew the rock and caught mainly Ide for a weight of 7-11-00.

Mike Ellis came third with 7-08-00 of skimmers from peg 34.

Overall, the series was won by Mike  Ellis, pictured right. Mike scored  an amazing 104 points out of a possible 144. This included 4 wins, 2 seconds and 2 thirds.

Pushing Mike all the way, was Graham Davison just a couple of points behind.

Third went to Pete Evans some ay behind on 66 and in fourth was Colin Westwood with 64.

And it all starts again in two weeks time with the first of the Winter League Series.

The penultimate round of the Summer Series was fished today on the Trap Pool. Conditions were far better than expected but unfortunately, the bright conditions made things very difficult for many, however pegs with cover fared quite well.

Winner on the day was Mike Ellis with 16-11-00. Mike drew peg 33 and fished to the island with a groundbait feeder and caught mainly Ide. In second was Graham Davidson with 8-12-00 of  mainly bits from peg 20. Two bonus Crucians and a skimmer taken on pellet boosted his weight.

The league is currently lead by Mike, just half a point ahead of Graham with just one match to go.

Young Mike Rough took third spot with 6-01-00 from peg 27 and just behind him was Welsh team mate, Liam Parry with 5-12-00 from peg 12.

Summer Series Sunday 29th


The Bream have been showing  on the Sandbank for the last few days and it was only a matter of time before someone put a weight together. Graham Tasker (left) drew peg 32 and made no mistake. After a slow start, he took 9 good Bream and a few small skimmers for a winning weight of 27-05-00. Graham caught most on 6mm pellet  fished at 9 metres.

In second was Graham Davidson with 15-01-00 of mostly Ide and Barbel from peg 12, whilst it was very close for 3rd with Joe Bird just edging out Brian Probert by one ounce for a level 9lbs.







Ladies Cup (Sunday 28th August)

Sunday morning was particularly miserable and wet, but fortunately, things picked up considerably for this match and the very tasty barbecue that followed. Many thanks to Brian the Burger for a splendid job. In total 6 ladies took part, or at least I think they were all ladies! and all caught well. A number of good Bream were landed, but surprisingly, it was a carp that stole the show. Young Sophie Westbrook (pictured below) hooked a carp on double maggot hookbait but unfortunately lost it when the hooklength broke. A new heavier rig was attached and she was soon into a second fish and this time made no mistake, netting a fine common of just over 10lbs.

  In second spot was Wilma Wilcock with 6-11-00 of Bream from peg 31. Wilma was unfortunate to have lost a Bream at the net and a second jumped out of her hands whilst posing for the camera. Had she won, I think there may well have been a stewards enquiry with question asked about HIS elegibility!!

Junior Summer Series (Sponsored by Lionels Tackle) Round 4





The latest round was fished last night in ideal conditions, warm, overcast with a gentle breeze, and the juniors made the most of it with excellent weights for just a two and a half hour match.

In first place was George Campbell (pictured left and on the left) with 7-03-05 from peg 22. Goerge fished caster at 7 metres  for a number of Roach, Perch and Skimmers.

Close behind was Mike Rough with 6-12-14 from 19. Mike pole fished maggot at 11 metres for a good mixed bag including a Bream of about 2lbs.

Ryan Wilcox was next to Mike on peg 20 and had a bag of silvers along with a Crucian and a Tench (thats not a misprint) for 5-01-07. After landing the Tench, Ryan unfortunately took advice from a spectator and tightened his elastic and as a result bumped off the next 7 fish.

Top under 12 yr old and 4th overall was 10 yr old Oliver Westbrook with 4-03-03 of Ide and Chub from peg 12. Oliver was also unlucky losing a number of sizeable fish in the tree roots.

What a match this turned out to be! Sixteen young anglers took part, aged between 7 and 16. The youngest, Alex Westbrook pictured left, drew peg 12 and after a slow start found a hungry shoal of Ide just 3 metres out.

In second spot with a weight of 7-01-00, was Travis Butler  (pictured right) Travis drew peg 15 on The Rubble and started on the pole before getting into dificulty with his elasticated top. This forced him to go to plan B which was to use feeder tactics and was rewarded with this nice Common Carp.

Ryan Wilcox was the unluckiest angler of the night, Ryan hooked into a very large Carp on light tackle very early on , but unfortunately lost it after a considerable time.

All 16 anglers weighed in and the league is now lead by George Campbell. Further details next week.

COMBAT STRESS OPEN (Sunday July 17th)

This match was fished over 6hrs in persistent rain, and strong winds which wrecked a number of brollies. However, most stuck it out, and a couple of hundred pounds was raised and will be going to the charity, Combat Stress.

The winner on the day was Graham Tasker with a tremendous weight of 30-15-00. Graham chose to fish long pole  from unfancied peg 27. Fishing at half depth and spraying maggots, he caught several good Bream and Skimmers before a succession of Carp came into his swim. He lost several but managed to land a brace of Common Carp to win quite comfortably.

Second was Mathew Carrol with 19-03-00 of silver fish from peg 33. Mathew fished a long pole and alternated between worm and caster.

In third was Pete Ellis with 15-07-00 of skimmers, Roach and Ide from peg 42 on the long bank.This was an excellent catch from this area of the pool given the conditions and he would have done even better had he not lost   4 good skimmers at the net.

There was a tie for fourth, with Graham Davison and Justin Westbrook both weighing 14-10-00.

The shallows fished particularly well and visiting angler, Andy Amos (pictured right) made the most of a good draw. Andy drew peg 22 and made no mistake taking a good bag of silver fish using long pole and caster. A couple of sizeable Bream boosted his weight to over 25lbs and made him a clear winner on the night.

Sunday 19th June (Summer Series)

The 6th match in the series was fished today on the Trap Pool. Conditions were better than of late, and the pool fished quite well, but the big fish were once again conspicuous by their absence.

Graham Davidson drew one of the fancied pegs in the shallows (peg 22) and made no mistake taking an impressive 21lb 1oz mixesd bag to the scales and running out a comfortable winner.

In second was Kevin Carr with 12-12-00 from the jetty. This was again a good mixed bag consisting of Roach, Ide, Rudd, Perch, skimmers and Crucians.

In third was Mike Ellis with 11-00-00 of small stuff from peg 16 on the Rubble.

You would never think it possible but for the second week in a row, Buckley anglers have been upstaged by a junior angler. This time, by Michael Rough. Michael has been there or there abouts all summer and its great to see him finally take first place.

Mike drew peg 26 (used for the first time this year ) and landed a sizeable carp of around 10lb plus a number of Roach and Ide all to single caster fished shallow on a long pole.

Junior Welsh International Mathew Powell came 3rd with 13-04-00 of skimmers from peg 15 0n the rubble. Mathew was unlucky to have pulled off four sizeable Bream on the way to the net, so better luck next time.
