Hi There. I'm celebrating 30 years of fishing with the purchase of a 4x barrow to go with my new MVAS membership. The barrow will enable me to get to swims at other waters than Mote Park and the disabled swims near the boathouse. Already tried out Great Danes and Weirton and am looking forward to return visits there and trying out other venues

Thanks for the admission folks

Hello all, 

I'm a new member and am looking forward to my first fishing trip.

I have been wondering what the Mote Park car parking extension is about. Is it if we are fishing once the park closes?

Thanks,
Lee

  Club Championship Match Result Aldington - May 23rd 2021
Posted by: Medway Mick - 23-05-2021, 07:59 PM - Forum: Season 2020 - 2021 - No Replies

This seasons club championship came to a gripping end at a blustery Aldington Res. With Graham leading by four points, Michael
 needed to claw that back to get the trophy decided on total weight.
The draw was just what he wanted, drawing hot peg 16, with Graham on peg 6 on the opposite bank.
There was no doubt about the match winner on the day as Michael cleared the next best weight by 10lb with 27lb 4oz of Skimmers and Bream on the feeder.
A tense wait as the scales went round saw Grahams 12lb 13oz beaten by Michael and two other anglers (Peter Blake and Jon Overton)
 which gave him 4th spot and the championship by just one point!
Congatulations Graham and well done Michael for taking it right to the wire in the most competitive championship for years.
See you all in June!

Full Result. All 19 in pools

Mike Rose 27-4-0 (20 points) £25

Club Championship Result - RMC Aldergate - 16th May 2021

30 Anglers gave the Canal another chance following recent poor catches in our annual visit to Cinque Ports A C.
16 from MVAS took on 14 from CPAS with the winners being decided by the total weight from the top four weights from each club.
Sporadic heavy showers and gusty winds made conditions changeable throughout the day but the outcome was very clear cut with MVAS gaining revenge for the sound beating we received at Aldington last year.
On the individual front, Peter Blake landed a couple of nice Tench to win comfortably from Paul Humphrey and Graham Mitchell who made up the podium.
Next Sundays match at Aldington is the final club match of the 2020-2021 season and will be any method.

Interclub match Vs Linton AS
Stallance Res
Sunday 25/4/21 results

Today was the annual away fixture against our friends from Linton AS at their Stallance ressies. A fixture many of us look forward to with Stallance normally a good match venue and one we don't get much chance to fish. Unfortunately today the weather put paid to any decent fishing with this seemingly never ending north easterly wind making temperatures feel more like January than late April. 
With the bigger of the two ressies more open to the elements than the top this wasn't the lake to be on with the wind making fishing conditions very difficult. 
As expected the top lake produced the winner with MVAS angler Joe Collins landing 5 small carp along with one of the four resident grass carp in the lake to take the honours with 13lb 14ozs. 
Not far behind was another MVAS angler Steve Giles who managed 12lb 8ozs for second spot. 
Completing the podium and the hat trick for MVAS was Mike Rose who managed just one carp on the big Res which went 4lb 12ozs, whilst forth was also another MVAS angler Graham Mitchell who had 4lb 2ozs of bits. 
On the team front it was an easy win for us with MVAS posting a total weight of 41lb 9ozs  to Linton's 11lb 2ozs.

  Club Championship Match Result Aldington 18th April 2021
Posted by: Medway Mick - 19-04-2021, 08:48 AM - Forum: Season 2020 - 2021 - No Replies

A full house of 30 anglers got the match scene back underway following a frosty start at Aldington Res.
With the shallows producing good pleasure sessions recently, it was thought that was the place to be. However the fishing gods done their usual trick and spun the catches round 360 with the main bowl accounting for the top 6 weights.
It was a tight run contest with Kev Rogers once again saving his best for this venue, edging out Jon Overton by less than 2lb to take the honours from fancied peg 16 on the right hand spit. Jons catch came from peg 5 with Peter 'Blakey' Blake making up the podium from peg 8.
As you can see from the result sheet, if you didn't have a few Bream in front of you, you were never going to put together a decent weight.
