Guys and girls.......I have come up with a wee idea with regards this meet; let me know what you think. :secret:

I will not fish the beach at Eastney on the given date as I do not have the gear (as yet) or the casting ability to reach the fishies and although I am looking forward to meeting you lot, I have no desire to stand there with you all and blank.

SO.............I plan to fish South Parade pier instead!! The pier is within sight of the beach, so my plan will be to meet with everyone at the start (and then afterwards (in a pub would be nice?!) for those that wish). If anyone would care to join me on the pier; that would be great (and might leave a little more room on the beach).

Lee has told me that I do not know how to fish and I need to completely rethink everything I do!! :blink: LOL. Personally, I think I am a half decent angler, who simply does not have the gear or the casting technique to reach the fish on a beach that requires a decent chuck...that will come!! I am most experienced in carp fishing....best 37 1/2lb) so I'm not having that from a West Country webbed foot!! :yucky: Rightly or wrongly, I would back myself against anyone as long as I can reach the fish and the pier will provide just that. :clap2:

Consequently, I will be challenging Lee (foolishly.....or maybe not?!) to an 'I will catch more than you friendly' comp on the day........anyone want to fish for the pier team?! LOL. :kissing:

Thoughts please. Regards All.

Andy. :notworthy

sorry to p on your parade ac but the meet on the 1 april will be on the beach not the pier i said last week il let you use 2 of my rods m8 as if you fish the pier then its unfair as you will be in deeper water and closer to the shipping channel and if the pier was allowed then ppl could bag up on gar fish wrasse etc so to be fair m8 its the beach and only the beach m8.bagstar if you could bring the cards down then that would be great m8

Hang on a mo, lads. I'm pretty sure that I'm not alone among those of us from Sussex planning to come along in thinking that 1 April was supposed to be a friendly meet - not a comp of any kind. Surely the first friendly comp is on 28 April at West Bexi?

Agreed. Count me out if it's a comp. :uhuh:

Lee.......What does fairness have to do with it?! This is supposed to be a FRIENDLY MEET not a comp so why would we need scorecards? The bit about the pier team was a joke between us.....people are coming for a meet and to fish a new venue; we will alienate people if we start suggesting that it is a comp.

I am a novice and as you know, still fish with my carp rods; if fishing the pier gives me the ability to catch more fish and have a better day out then that is what I will do mate (and anyone else who wishes to join me will be more than welcome).

Big Love.

Andy. :kissing:

Andy - if I am not working and can make it, I am up for giving the pier a go. Having fished eastney with some HHAC members last week I also think my casting inst enough to get the distance required to get amongst the fish from the beach. Anyway, havent fished a pier for years so fancy a change

The 28th is meant to be the first friendly COMP of the regional league Howie.
Not only that but it is the first D.A.B meet/comp and it is one rod! for good reasons, the forst being it is better for less experienced anglers as they have a better chance of success. as for the meet on 1ST April, I had no idea there was a pier there in the first place, but as i will be two days out of a knee op i will be taking the pier thanks.
The thing that maybe looks a bit queer is the fact that apparently most of the fish are being caught at distance at eastney? yet you are insisting that it is only to be held on the beach and you think it unfair if people get to "bag up" on the pier.
good luck to them mate, you cannot expect poor casters to stand on a beach with bugger all chance of catching a fish when decent casters can pull fish in.
it's only my view though, not having a go.

HOW CAN 1 ROD MEAN MORE FISH IAN?:uhuh: :g: THINK YOU MEAN 2 RODS THEN PPL HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF CATCHING FISH. OK THE MORE EXPERIANCED ANGLER CAN FISH 2 RODS BUT THEY MUST WALK A DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE NOVICE ANGLERS (WEST BEXINGTON) AND FISH 2 RODS THEN WALK TO SOMEONE FROM A DIFFERENT TEAM TO GET THE CARDS MARKED THEN PUT FISH BACK INTO THE WATER I DONT NO ABOUT YOU OR HOW MANY MATCHES YOU HAVE FISHED IAN M8 BUT I DO NO WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT.OR WE DO IT THIS WAY WE ALL MEET AT THE CAR PARK(WEST BEX)AT 930 AND FIND OUT HOW MANY PPL WANT TO FISH 1/2 RODS ON THE DAY THEN WE GO WITH THE MAJORITY OK THAT SEEMS FAIR ENOUGH TO ME AND MANY OF HERE :)

cool, lets do it this way then
you deal with the friendly on 1st april how you see fit. I will do the same with the 28th April.
but yo uneed to understand that i will be gutted if i need help off anyone , especially as i will be on crutches and a pier seems very appealing to me, and who exactly cares where we fish or how many species will be thre?

i have known a fair few comps that you can fish 2 rods.you seem to be missing the point arnt you if you match a novice with an experianced angler then the novice will learn a thing or to from the other angler that is being fair before the start of the meet you find out who is novices and whom are the better anglers then you match them up novices,better angler and so on then you are being fair to all then the novice can learn a few tricks by watching and talking to the more experianced angler then thats fair while they are fishing the friendly meet/comp
