Senior Coarse Competition

Apr 29, 2019   //   by Merthyr Tydfil Angling Alliance   //   News  //  No Comments

The senior competition held on Sunday 14th April was a complete blank for everyone, even me and Doug won that one as no one caught a fish so everyone was a joint winner!!!!!!

The match fish on Sunday April 28th at Riverside Fishery was won by Dave Couzens with 26lbs 12oz, 2nd was Jim Howells with 17lbs 7oz, 3rd was Steve Llewellyn with 16lbs 12oz, 4th was Jason Woodford with 14lbs 12oz and 5th was Dia (Odd Socks) Davies with 12lbs 10oz.  Our sympathy goes to our Comp Sec Doug who weighed in 3lbs because he had a small hole in his keep net and a lot of the small fish escaped.

Carp League – 1st Comp this coming weekend

Apr 2, 2019   //   by Merthyr Tydfil Angling Alliance   //   News  //  No Comments

Due to the work still not being completed at Cyfarthfa park I have decided to move the first carp league competition this Sunday (the 7th April) up onto Top Pond Pen-Y-Wern.

I would like to ask anyone wishing to fish the league this year to meet at the carp park at the centre of Top Pond at 08:30 this coming Sunday.

Please do not forget that this is a CARP LEAGUE so anyone turning up with any fishing gear that isn’t a carp fishing set up will not be allowed to enter the competition. Also each competitor must have a suitable net (36” minimum) an unhooking mat or cradle, carp care kit, a suitable weight sling. These are minimum requirements for entry.

I look forward to seeing you all there 👍

I would also like to ask everyone wishing to fish to bring along some cash as we may do a few prizes on the day
