I may not have won the cup with the 'fertility symbols' on it but I did win this one....

The Robin and Karolyn Hatt Memorial Trophy.

Best coin of 2020 for my Verica silver unit.

Bit hard to photograph as it had only been half polished so I thought it deserved a gentle spruce up, probably should have taken the photos before polishing it!

Very proud to have my name on it, sadly I'll have to give it back next year unless I manage to pull something out of the bag in the next few weeks, but I got a plaque to keep.

Well done Jamesey :clapping:
Now get back out there and find something that will let you keep it for a second year :ugeek:

When i was a nipper i was a whizz at the junior fishing competitions (truth be told there were usually only 10 of us :lol: )
But then in the adult section there were quite a few cups like this that were won on certain matches and kept for a year
I managed to win one once and had my name on it and kept it for a year
It does make you feel good too :thumbsup:

I'm going to enter the quarter stater, it's not in good enough condition or unusual enough to win though.

I'm struggling with my back at the minute due to the unsettled weather so unless I get very lucky indeed on the couple of trips I'm likely to manage before the end of the year this will have someone else's name on it next year.

Nice to get my name on a trophy though, the last one was for kickboxing about 20 years ago!

You've reminded me to have a snout about for my football trophies, though after two house moves I very much doubt they're going to turn up :(

Did you grow up in Somerset? I fished for the Bristol club Silver Dace juniors as a kid and we used to fish matches on the kingsedgemoor and huntspill against a Somerset club but I can't remember which one.

Yeppers Bred and born here :ugeek:
Although i cant for the life of me know what we were called back then, didnt interest me in names , i just wanted worms and maggots on hooks and cast out lol
But i do recognise your Silver Dace club from the past
I'm 55 now so depending on your age its possible we faced each other in the Huntspill or the Sedgemoor :thumbsup:

I know we had people like the great Morris White (always falling asleep whilst fishing, but the kindest man you ever met) John Hand, Brian Webb, Mike and Reg Long
All great people who spent their own money on bait for us and lent us gear if we were short, transported us to locations
Fantastic guys with a couple still standing

I'm 50 so yep quite possible we did fish against each other. sadly Silver Dace are no more . I enjoyed match fishing but when I got to 16 my love of pike fishing got the upper hand! Fished quite a few Somerset waters for pike, mainly cheddar res and chew but also a few of the drains,the Brue,axe, etc The levels are a lovely part of the world.
