Ian Pitman wins Sunday Club match 19th Jan 2020 with credible 39lb's!

EJAS Sunday Club match held on a partially frozen Jubilee Pool. Conditions were extremely cold and foggy. It was decided that the first three anglers overall would receive prize monies. In addition there were two cash Section prizes to fish for.

The winner of the match was Ian Pitman weighing in 39lb 13oz of carp on J1. Ian's catch consisted of seven carp caught on the pole using maggot hook bait. Second place was narrowly secured by Chris Taylor weighing in 27lb of carp on J6. Chris's catch consisted of five carp caught on pole fished maggot. Third place was claimed by Mark Court weighing in 25lb 5oz of carp on J23. Marks catch consisted of four pole caught carp using maggot hookbaits.

Section winners were Ron Evans weighing in 7lb 4oz on J8 ( Section J1,4,6,8 and 11). Ron's catch consisted of two straight lead caught carp. The other Section winner was Martin Smith weighing in one bream for 2lb 5oz on J18 ( Section J13,18,19 and 23). Martins bream was caught on pole fished maggot.

Considering the conditions the pool fished extremely well. The Bonus Peg funds were not won today.

Death of EJAS Club Member Tony Hemming

It is with deep sadness that I write following the death of Tony Hemming from prostrate cancer. Tony had been suffering with the disease for sometime. Tony was taken into St Richards Hospice, Worcester on the evening of Sunday 5 January 2020. Tony passed away the following day. Our thoughts are with Tony's family and close friends he will be missed by all that knew him.

Tony's funeral will be held on Friday 24 January 2020 at 11am. The service will be at Evesham Crematorium (near Fladbury Village). The funeral I believe is open to all wishing to pay their respects to Tony's life.

The Treasurer Bob Evans has made the following statement in respect of Tony's passing;
"All fishing clubs have their problems and Jubilee AS are no exception. However if you judge a club by its members Jubilee AS is one of the best and Tony Hemming was one of the best. The hundreds of hours Tony gave up to keep the club going was unmatched. Tony was a real diamond and a totally unselfish human being. Tony will be greatly missed by all. Rest in peace mate".

I think these sentiments would be agreed by all that know Tony. Personally I will think of him every time I walk passed Peg 9 which I am sure was Tony's all time favourite peg.

Saturday Opens Suspended until next season

Due to competition and unavailability of match organisers the Saturday Opens have been suspended until next season except for the last day of the season Saturday 29th February.

Pete Lewis wins Christmas Fayre Match

Sunday 22nd December

Thirteen anglers took part in The Christmas Fayre Match held on Jubilee Pool. There were prizes for all entrants comprising of gifts, chocolates, wine, beer and biscuits. It was decided that there would be pools prizes for the first three anglers overall and two section winners prizes.
The overall winner of the match was Pete Lewis weighing in a very creditable catch of seven carp weighing in at 27lb 6oz on J11. Pete's catch was taken on pole fished corn. Second place was taken by Steve Dobbs weighing in two carp for 18lb 7oz on J13. Steve's catch included a carp weighing in at 14lb 2oz. Third place was secured by Richard Ford weighing in 12lb 12oz of carp on J8. Richards catch was made on the pole fishing pinkies.

The Section winners were Chris Taylor weighing in three carp for 10lb 15oz on J5 ( Section J1,3,5,7,8,9 and 11) and Bob Evans weighing in two carp on J25 for 9lb 9oz ( Section J13,16,19,21,23 and 25).

All entrants received prizes irrespective of their finishing position in the match. The Bonus Pegs were not won today.

Thanks must be given to Mark Court for his time and effort in organising this contest and purchasing the prizes handed out to the competitors.

I hope that all members of EJAS have a Happy Christmas and that 2020 affords all members and their families good health.

Evesham Jubilee Angling Society present cheque for £680 to Ria Simons on behalf of St Richards Hospice

Presented by Chris Taylor, John Davis and Alan Gardner

Fur and Feather - Results

A fun day

The winner in a close fought contest was Chris Taylor weighing in 24lb 2oz of carp on J9. The catch consisted of five carp taken on the pole.  Carp were taken straight out and past the lilies near peg 8.  It was so windy that at least three times Chris had to place his pole on the bank to stop it being broken.  This was a hard fought win.  Along with the quality goodie bag everyone received Chris also got a £25 Tesco voucher and the lions share of the £5 side pool. 

Second place was taken by Bob Evans weighing in 23lb 13oz of carp and a solitary bream on J25.  Bob caught consistently during the day on the pole and must have thought in such bad conditions he had a chance of winning.   Second place by only five ounces gained Bob,  along with his quality goodie bag, a £20 Tesco voucher and  the second slice of the £5 side pool.

Third place was secured by Alan Gardner weighing in three carp caught on the feeder on J1 weighing in at 21lb 2oz.  Alan took advantage of the full scope of peg 1,  searching all areas with his maggot feeder.  Snagging three beauties averaging 7lb a piece was enough to get 3rd place.   Alan got a Tesco voucher for £15 and the third slice of the £5 side pool.

New Guestimate Match Total Weight Option on Matches - Update

Starting again in the New Year with the pot standing at £14.

Many thanks to the 7 who entered today adding £7 to the fish fund and making the potential payout £17.
However with 11 fishing nobody thought with the weather so cold that the Pool would fish so well! The lowest guess was 84lb and the highest was 132lb......the total match weight was 242lb 4oz! That just shows the work everyone has done /Bank Clearing/culling the lilly's/siltex/stocking has paid off so far. We should be proud of the water and hopefully get a healthy membership next year.
I feel I have to make a change for Wednesday, taking into account there could be less fishing or even more I don't want the parameters to change too far but I think asking for guesstimates to be within 1lb below or 1lb over is asking a lot so on Wednesday the guesses will need to be within and including 3lb above or below.
The rollover £17 plus entries will be running on Wednesday to try and guess the overall combined match weight of all anglers to be within 3lb's over or 3lb's under.
I will add the guesses and results onto a new page on the website in due course.
Thanks for making it a success so far

I am starting a new Pool for guessing the overall weight of a match. This will be optional and will cost £2. £1 will go to the pool and £1 will go to the fish fund. A donated £10 will start the pool.

The aim is to guess the overall total weight of fish all angers catch in a match. If are within or exactly 1lb over or 1lb under the amount caught, then you win the pool. If nobody guesses within this amount the money rolls over. Anglers will be requested to weigh in any weights over !lb. This will be for any matches I attend and is totally voluntary. Guesses will be recorded before the match starts and winners will be notified on the Web page and Forum. I will also post near misses etc.


1. This will be run if I am attending the matches. I will add MT next to the fixtures I am planning to attend each week. If for any reason I do not make the match then it will NOT be run.

2. There must be at least 7 anglers present at the match start, just like the bonus/golden pegs.

3. The lowest possible guess must be 30lb. If you don't think a match will produce 30lb overall then do not enter. If a match total does not reach 30lb the money rolls over - no refunds.

4. If a match is unexpectedly abandoned after commencing then the money rolls over - no refunds.

5. If I am forced to leave a match mid term then the match organiser will provide a copy of the weigh sheet to me and I will provide results ASAP.

6. If the pool money is not won before the end of the season then the Pool will carry over onto the away matches during the close season and will continue into next season.

7. There will be no minimum entry requirement. If you don't start guessing until the pool reaches a certain level then fine, this is ultimately about collecting money for fish fund.

8. The pool will be run on any matches I attend. This includes opens/away matches. I may not attend a river match for-instance and in this case the pool could well be run on a Saturday Open that I don't normally attend.

9. If two anglers guess the weight exactly the same but one above and one below the pool with be split 50/50.

10. If I make a genuine mistake, saying adding up the weights you have until the next match to let me know. Once the next match starts then previous match discrepancies will not be valid and any wins will not be paid. I will adding a new page to the website which will include all entry details and where possible a picture of the result sheets. Please check your entries.

11. If someone accidentally forgets to weigh in an amount, or there is a weighing malfunction or any other issue then my decision will be final. If in the unlikely event there is a objection then I would need to informed and a letter written to the committee details your issue. This statement is required but I am not expecting any issues!

I will start this on Sunday with the pool starting at £10 plus a £1 from each entry.

Approx 230lb's of Carp added to Jubilee Pool

A bargain we couldn't refuse. Received 4th November 2019

Approx 230lb of Carp added to Jubilee Pool

We received an offer of 200lb's of carp from JS Fisheries at a price which represented a 60% discount on anything I could find on-line.  One of the leased pools at his fishery had been sold so the fish needed to be moved and as we are a local club they were offered to us.  The deal was for 200lb of fish averaging 4 - 6lb.  When they arrived today Jack thought there would be more than 200lb and we estimated the final total received was 230lb's a bonus 15%.  As there are currently on-going negotiations with the owners for next years rent I notified them that these fish will be financed solely by donations and I would finance the delivery and collect donations independently.  The committee was very keen to get these fish but only on these terms.

Donations so far are £100 from myself plus approximately 40 Pink Bluetooth speakers which will be sold for only £5 with 100% going to the fund (sold 5 so far with more orders pending)  £25 plus £100 pledged from Ron Evans.  If members just give between £5 - £20 the required figure would be achieved and surpassed in no time.  I will update the forum with each donation (anomalously unless stated) and update the news page weekly.  Please see forum for exact purchase figure. I also plan to hold the occasional 'fish fund match' pending committee approval, with the first hopefully during the Christmas period.

Donations can be made to Mark Court at the fishery or via Paypal to courtieboy@gmail.com.  I will add more payment methods on the forum.  If you wish to donate via the treasurer Bob Evans please let him know it is for the fish so that he can pass the money on.

Tight lines,

Mark Court

Club Admin Officer.

PS If as expected the figure required for these fish is reached reasonably quickly JS Fishery has already stated that he will do us another great deal on Bream when they become available during the colder months of Jan - Feb.  We would be looking for around half the amount we received last year.
