 Gaye Plate Xmas Match Taylor's Top Lake

2nd December 2023

Our annual Xmas match was fished on the Top Lake at Taylor’s. The poor weather on the day had a big impact on the turnout, with 10 anglers braving the conditions to take part. The fishing unsurprisingly was very tough, with just four people weighing in. Top weight went to Jeff Pearson with 5lbs 4ozs, Peter Green was 2nd with 4lbs 7ozs, Willy Ramthor was 3rd with 3lbs 7ozs and Dave Sellick was 4th with 2ozs. In the evening we reconvened at the Prince of Wales in Cheshunt with our partners and guests for the prize giving and a celebratory meal. Thanks to Willy Ramthor for organising the pre match drinks and snacks, and the Xmas meal and prizes.

Ken Mann Trophy Taylor's Lake

5th November 2023

The Ken Mann Trophy  was fished  at Taylor’s on the Top Lake. We had a good turnout for the match with 15 angler’s taking part. However, conditions were far from ideal with the lake being  very clear and high, this was due to the recent very rainy weather. Taylor’s never seems to fish well after heavy rain and most of us struggled to catch numbers of fish. 1St on the day was Darren Marder with 19lbs 6oz, Peter Green was 2nd with 10lbs 1ozs and Dave Sellick was 3rd with 5lbs 5ozs.

ACAS v BSDAS Beggar's Hall

1st November 2023

Our latest inter club match with Bishop’s Stortford was fished on their club lake at Beggars Hall. It is well known for its good sized carp and fortunately these were in a feeding mood for the match, leading to most of those taking part having at least a couple of decent sized fish. Team wise it was an comfortable win for Abbey Cross with 95 points, with Bishop’s Stortford scoring 75 points. Individually, Peter Green was top with 61lbs 8ozs, John Carter was 2nd with 39lbs 15ozs and Jeff Pearson was 3rd with 32lbs 12ozs.

The club’s stretch of the River Ouse at Box End Farm was the proposed venue for our Ouse Trophy competition. Unfortunately, heavy rain in the days leading up to the match meant the river was over its banks, so we had a late transfer of the match to the Car Park Lake at Taylor’s. For most of us it was tough going at Taylor’s although John Carter did have a good bag of quality fish. John had top weight with 26lbs 6ozs,  Alan Fox was 2nd with 5lbs and Jo Smith was 3rd with 2lbs 4ozs.

John Duff Cup Silver Fish

Hunter's Hall 8th October 2023

This match was fished at Hunter’s Hall and was arranged as a silver fish only competition, tench & carp not allowed. As with the inter club match a few days earlier the weather was still unseasonably mild, with virtually no wind and again the fishing was quite difficult, although there were a couple of decent bags of bream caught. Dave Marder was 1st on the day with 38lbs 2ozs, Stuart Curtis was 2nd with 20lbs 6ozs and I was 3rd with 13lbs 14ozs.

ACAS v BSDAS Taylor's Top Lake

4th October 2023 


Our October inter club match with Bishop’s Stortford was fished on the Top Lake at Taylor’s. The weather was exceptionally mild for the time of year with a very light breeze. The lake has fished well throughout the summer, but the abnormal weather appeared to impact the fish and they were not in a feeding mode.  Team wise Abbey Cross had a very easy win scoring 100 points to Bishop’s Stortford’s 68 points. Individually Abbey Cross had the top five individuals with Jeff Pearson having top weight of 16lbs 7ozs, Peter Green was 2nd with 16lbs 2ozs and John Carter was 3rd with 8lbs 8ozs.

ACAS Ladies Match

Hunters Hall 17 September 2023


Our 2nd ladies match this year took place at Hunters Hall. There were only a few of us and after a look at the lake we decided to use pegs 8 – 10 as there were fish showing in this area. The weather was still warm, mostly overcast with intermittent sunny spells and a downpour just 5 minutes from the end of the match. Swim 9 was the most active on the day followed by 10 then 8.

Jo Smith 58lb 4oz

17th SEPTEMBER 2023

For our Norfolk weekend trip we fished St Benet’s Abbey on the River Bure on both days. Fortunately, we didn’t encounter the tide problems that we had last year. Although, there was a noticeable shortage of the quality bream and roach that we have caught on previous visits there were plenty of small fish to catch. On Saturday Stuart Curtis came out on top with 15lbs 1oz, I was 2nd with 14lbs 14ozs and Willy Ramthor was 3rd with 8lbs 4ozs. On Sunday I had the top weight with 13lbs 6ozs, Stuart Curtis was 2nd with 8lbs 11ozs and Bob Fox 3rd with 7lbs 14ozs.

Our latest inter club match with Bishop’s Stortford was supposed to be held at their Malcom Barker Lake, however due to excessive weed growth it was moved to Hall Farm. This lake had been fishing well in the lead up to our match and fortunately the good form continued, with over 400lbs of fish weighed in. Team wise Bishop’s Stortford gained a narrow win with 69 points to our 67 points. Individually, I was 1st with 68lbs 11ozs, Steve Foster of Bishop’s Stortford was 2nd 42lbs 7ozs and Ray Calderton, also of Bishop’s Stortford, was 3rd with 35lbs 5ozs.

Fred Sandland Cup

Hunter's Hall 20th August 2023 

 This year’s Fred Sandland Cup  was fished on our club lake at Hunter’s Hall. On the day we had to contend with a difficult blustery breeze, along with bright sunshine, both of which contributed to it being quite a hard day. Weights were well down on recent matches with the resident bream and tench proving hard to find. I had top on the day with 21lbs 2ozs, Alan Fox was 2nd with 15lbs 13ozs and Bob Fox  was 3nd with 15lbs 9ozs.

ACAS v BSDAS Nazeing Car Park Lake

2nd August 2023

Our August inter club match with Bishop’s Stortford was fished on the Car Park lake at Nazeing. The breezy hot weather made it hard going for most of us taking part, with float fishing being particularly challenging. Despite this there were some reasonable weights from the more sheltered areas. Team wise it was a very close run thing with Abbey Cross just coming out on top 63 points, with Bishop’s Stortford totalling 62 points. Individually, John Carter came 1st  with  103lbs 8ozs, I was 2nd with 59lbs 10ozs and Ray Gibson of Bishop’s Stortford was 3rd with 38lbs 7ozs.

This match was fished on the Car Park Lake at Nazeing. It was a very windy day, with occasional showers, making bait presentation difficult for all. Consequently, weights were well down on previous year’s results. Top on the day was Kevin Shaw with 81lbs 12ozs, I was 2nd with 32lbs 2ozs and Peter Green was 3rd with 30lbs 5ozs.

Fish were showing straight away attacking the feeder on the drop, with Roach, Rudd, Bream and Tench all being caught.  Swim 14 being the most active on the day followed by 13 and then 12.

Carrington Cup Cokenach

7th May 2023

This year’s Carrington Cup was held on a small estate lake near Barley. The lake is principally a carp syndicate water, but we were invited to fish there for the good numbers of rudd, roach and perch that are present. The lake proved to be quite shallow and very weedy, it also contained a lot of pike, these proved to be a real nuisance when catching the silver fish. I had top weight on the day with 14lbs 11ozs, Jeff Pearson was 2nd with 10lbs 7ozs and Mark Fox was 3rd with 7lbs 15ozs.

ACAS v BSDAS Taylor's Top Lake

5th April 2023 

Our April inter club match with Bishop’s Stortford was fished on the Top Lake at Taylor’s. Following on from the club match a few days earlier Taylor’s again fished pretty well and there were a number of decent bream and F1’s caught, mostly from the more favoured pegs.  Team wise  things were very close with Bishop’s Stortford  just winning with 69 points to our 66. Individually I came top with 34-6-0, John Todd was 2nd with 33lbs 4ozs and Alan Sims was 3rd with 25lbs 6ozs.

2nd April 2023

The Top Lake at Taylor’s was the venue for the Burrough’s Cup, our first match of the new season.

Officers Cup Taylor's Top Lake

The recent milder weather led to some better catches on the Top Lake at Taylor’s for this seasons Officer’s Cup. Most of the weighs were made up of F1’s, plus a few odd silver fish. Top weight on the day was Alan Fox who weighed in with 25lbs 11ozs, John Carter was 2nd with 19lbs 14ozs and I was 3rd with 17lbs 12ozs.

ACAS v BSDAS Hall Farm

1st March 2023

Our latest inter club match was fished at Bishop’s Stortford Hall Farm lake. This was always going to be a tough day, with a very cold north easterly wind blowing down the lake.  You can usually rely on the carp and F1’s on this water to feed at some time during the day.  Unfortunately, this was far from the case this time with all of us struggling for bites in the windy conditions.  Team wise Bishops Stortford came out on top with 57 points to our 32. Individually, they also took the top three places with Steve Foster 1st with 26lbs 8ozs, Terri Moranda  2nd with 7lbs 7ozs and Fred Hunt 3rd with 3lbs 8ozs.

ACAS v BSDAS Hall Farm

4th January 2023


Our latest inter club match was fished on Bishops Stortford’s Hall Farm lake. With the recent cold spell having coming to an end it was hoped that we would have a decent days sport. However, a very strong blustery wind made the fishing  far from easy, although we all did at least weigh in. Team wise Bishop’s Stortford had a comfortable win scoring 75 points to our 61. Individually the weights for the top five were very close with Alan Sims achieving top weight with 23lbs 8ozs, Bill Beeston of Bishop’s Stortford was 2nd with 21lbs 14ozs and Terry Moranda  also of Bishop’s Stortford 3rd with 20lbs 12ozs.

Reg Brayne Trophy River Stort Backstream

8th January 2023 

Our first match of the new year was fished on a backwater of the River Stort, close to Taylor’s, which owned by the Bishops Stortford club. At the start of the day the flow and colour were good, but heavy rain during the morning led to a lot of debris and dirty water entering the river, which severely limited catches in the afternoon. Top on the day was myself with 3lbs 10ozs, Alan Fox was 2nd 2lbs 11ozs and Jo Smith was 3rd with 1lbs 13ozs.
