Breaking News ! As the final preparations for the up and coming teams of four competition are prepared on the Leeds Liverpool Canal, looking at the form on our local ‘jewel’, I’m almost certain that this will be a another belting competition being guided by the association Match secretary Mike Dickson. Organising competitions like this is no easy fete at the best of times, but in traditional fashion, everyone can be at least assured, that even with a strict Covid 19 social distancing ruling, every angler will be hopeful of catching a few fish with Mike’s help. As the autumn approaches, roach will always be the main target for matchmen looking to put important team points on the board. However with skimmers predominant on some lengths being used in Maghull and Lydiate, they will provide a huge bonus on knocking up a weight for any competitor. As always individually it will all be down to that important draw. On the run up to this one, Leigh’s Anthony Lloyd, a new recruit of Liverpool AS squad, he took the best weight on a moody canal on Sunday.

Maghull’s Phil Smith is no stranger to the match scene and although having a ‘little’ time out, he’s returned again bolstering the LAS’s already strong squad with his vast amount of experience. Smith took 4.6.0 of roach for second place followed by another stalwart of the Liverpool scene and another LAS man Phil Walters who took 3.4.0. On the club scene, the Mersey Dockers took a trip over to the River Weaver on the old salt works length at the Red Lyon. Liverpool’s Steve Boyd Senior took the better of this one, as he’s put together a catch of small roach, finding some flow on this big river at just 6m. Opting for a traditional ‘sour bran’ approach, Boyd senior stuck to the task and was rewarded with the win. 15 yr old Joseph Doyle from Rainhill with a lovely Mirror Carp (Image: Liverpool Echo) That pushed his son Steve Junior into second place with his effort of 4.2.0.

Angling: No longer a hidden gem, Sarah has a stunning weekend
On the junior scene, interestingly for many, making statements that ‘no’ young anglers are coming through the ranks, I have to say that recently, I’ve been regularly championing many effort’s of catches on different waters by youngsters getting out of their ‘bedroom’s’ and joining us adults on the banks. Enjoying his approach on the urban scene and enjoying some fantastic fishing throughout it is Melling’s Mitchel Bennett. Already doing very well after seven months fishing, Mitchell 13yrs, a pupil at Deyes High School has taken numerous carp to 22lb within his efforts. Joseph Doyle aged 15 from Rainhill is another angler proving that with effort and endeavour, achievements can be rewarding. Joseph regularly takes ‘big’ doubles from many undisclosed venues to his credit.
