2020 Burton Angling Festival - Sponsored by Cadence UK & Coors - September 13th 2020
This was our 13th festival and probably our most challenging. A big thanks goes out to all the anglers who fished this week who acted in a really responsible way in these difficult times.With the river at Burton very low and clear, I was expecting a hard weeks fishing but for some reason at this time of year the fish really respond.
Over 30 double figure weights were recorded of roach and dace leading the way was Wayne Swinscoe on peg 18 on the Ferry bridge section where he fished long pole, stickfloat and waggler with bronze maggots for 20lb 3oz of mainly roach.
1st W Swinscoe 20.3.02nd S Merry 19.14.03rd T Kinson 19.14.04th T Marshall 17.7.05th A White 17.2.0
Conditions were again good for day 2 where Mark Halksworth again on the Ferry bridge section but upstream on peg 4 started on the long pole with maggots before switching to hempseed for 20lb 10oz of quality roach.After 2 days Steve Harwood was leading the festival with 2 points from 2 section wins with 13lb 6oz and 16lb 6oz.
1st M Halkesworth 20.10.02nd P Glenfield 17.0.03rd S Harwood 16.6.04th W Truman 16.3.05th R Alexander 16.2.0
After two days on the same pegs its inevitable that there will be a big drop off, but some actually improve, the top of Sherrats farm was an area that came alive the last day, taking advantage of that was veteran Paul Newell who fished waggler and casters for 18lb 4oz of roach.
1st P Newell 18.4.02nd N Bull 18.0.03rd R Casterton 16.13.04th J Robbins 16.4.05th P Bick 16.3.0
After 3 days of great fishing Nigel Bull was crowned champion with 6 points and defended the title he won last year, a great performance.

Coors Club Friendly Fishing Match ( Furnace Mill) - August 30th 2020
The friendly Coors team decided to have an away day which saw us fishing at Furnace Mill fishery close to the Wyre Forest. The temperature early doors was just above 6 degrees and whilst there were a number of fish showing I think the sudden drop in temperature did have a slowing effect on the fishing as weights were a lot lower than I would have expected.
That said a few lessons were learnt with the requirement for slightly heavier elastic as there were numerous occasions when elastics off varying colours could be seen stretching across the fishery.
The eventual individual winner Ian Roberts (well done Ian) could have easily doubled his weight had he managed to land all of the fish he hooked. The use of light tackle certainly gave more bites but there were a lot of breakages as large fish were being lost, I think slightly heavier gear a bit more commercial practise is in order for us all.
The pairs event on the day was won by Glen Poppleton and Steve (bleary eyed) Brealey (not used to such an early start) so well-done Glen and Steve.
The top three pairs weights were separated by 6lbs or one fish, so many what ifs, when so many fish broke up angler’s end rigs, still there is always next year if we decide to have a return visit.
Coors Drennan Match - August 23rd 2020
Drennan Coors Trent Masters Macmillan charity rd8 48 fished.
This was the last qualifier, the river had been up and down all week but steadied off for sundays match and it fished reasonably well with all sections producing roach.

Peg 10 hasn't been in the best of form this season but Dave Petch made them have it on Sunday fishing long pole with hempseed for quality roach in his 4 foot deep swim for 18lb 5oz and a comfortable win. Sherrats Farm produced the runner up for Nigel Bull on peg 8 where he balled it on the long pole line fishing maggots and hemp over the top for 13lb 1oz. Third was Steve Metcalfe on municipal peg 15 an area he knows really well? Where he fished waggler and pole with bronze maggots for 12lb 12oz of quality roach.

Coors Drennan Match - July 19th 2020

Coors Drennan Match - July 5th 2020
There's a saying in fishing... 'the wind is your friend', well it wasn't anyone's friend at Burton on Sunday, making it very difficult for most, those that found a bit of shelter faired best in a tight contest. The river improved from the first round with more roach showing which is a great sign after the winter floods. Winner on the day was Nottingham builder Stu Raynor who drew in the hot area on the Municipal length peg 22, Stu decided on a waggler and bronze maggot attack to put together a net of chublets and roach for 14lb 8oz from his 4 foot deep swim just holding off new Diawa Dorking signing Robbie Quinn who drew the famous wishing well peg on Androssey island, to be fair it hasn't been famous for 30 years!!
He tackled the deep hole with a chopped worm attack on a 10grm flat float and was rewarded with an 8lb bream and 2 big eels for 14lb 2oz.
Tied for third with 13lb 12oz was venue regulars Brian Rigby and Dave Petch both pegged on the Bailey's section, Dave on peg 16 fished pole and hempseed for quality roach, one or two nudging a pound.Brian was on peg 20 below the weir a fast gully, where he had a 3lb chub, plus roach. He also played what he thought was a barbel before a 5lb rainbow trout leapt clear of the water!

Coors Drennan Match - June 28th 2020
Drennan Coors Trent Masters Rd 1 60 fished.This was pretty much standard form for early season matches on the upper Trent on Coors waters around Burton, the streamier waters on the municipal length dominated the match with mostly chublets dace and a few roach, conditions weren't favourable either. An overnight lift of the river level and strong winds made it difficult for most. Overcoming all that was Coors angler Ian Shaw drawn on muni peg 22, he started on the 6m whip to hand catching mostly chublets on casters over groundbait, before switching to waggler and bronze maggot to complete his catch, which included a lone 2lb chub for 15lb 12oz and a comfortable win. Runner up was Ian Saiger, drawn 7 pegs down from the winner where he fished a similar match for 13lb 6oz. Third with 10lb 12oz was Wayne Truman drawn between the leaders he swapped between the whip and stickfloat for mostly chubletson bronze maggots.

Coors Drennan Match - June 21st 2020
This match was a prelude to the Drennan Coors Trent Masters series which starts this Sunday. All week the match had been in doubt due the high levels of water caused by flash thunder storms,although conditions were poor the organiser's decided to give it a go and to be fair it was ok, the winner was Brian Rigby drawn on the Municipal length peg 15. An area that produces a variety of specimens most seasons, this time it was big eels, Brian float fished for an hour for about 2lb of small fish before switching to a small chopped worm feeder and lobworm on the hook. After some mighty tussles, he managed to subdue 6 good eels for nearly 16lb and a total of 18lb for an easy win. Runner up was Dave Jones again, drawn on Municipal at peg 22 where he fished stickfloat with bronze maggots and hemp for 10lb 4 oz of small chub and roach. Third was Kelvin Rutter whose 9lb 6oz again consisted of 2 good eels plus chublets.

COVID-19 Coors AC Waters Summary
River Trent Now Open!
River Trent - No restrictions on numbers of anglers as pegs are approximately 30 meters apart. However, please be cautious as members of the general public will also be present.
Trent and Mersey Canal - No restrictions on numbers of anglers as pegs are approximately 22 meters apart. However, please be cautious as members of the general public will also be present.
An Important Note Regarding COVID-19's impact on fishing with Coors AC
Although match fishing on our waters maybe a while coming we do need to be prepared, the majority of our anglers and organisers are of the older generation and vulnerable to this virus. I hope everyone will take it seriously and not flout the guidelines, repeat offenders will be asked not to fish future matches.
I know these guidelines seem a bit draconian, but we want everyone to come to Coors matches to enjoy the day and keep safe. This is just a starting point and maybe as time goes on and we understand whats happening around the world and we can alter things to suit our sport and us more. Please be early for our Coors matches.
Our chainsaw team is working hard on the Municipal section!
Canal Match Results!
The following are the results of the open matches run on our canal stretches during January - March 2020. While the results give an indication of how the canal has fished we can not carry out a detailed analysis as the supplier does not use the bridge numbers or our permanent peg numbers.
Over the series of matches the organiser has come to the following conclusion:-
Quality of Skimmers is improving more in the 12 oz.-1 lb bracket.
More Perch in the 1lb plus bracket.
Areas of Concern
The lack of quality Roach
Increased Pike activity
All matches were held on our stretches of the Trent and Mersey Canal
