2016 Masters press release:

DEVON ANGLER BEN BRADSTOCK WINS 2016 SAMF UK MASTERS AT CHESIL
Devon angler Ben Bradstock won the 2016 SAMF UK MASTERS at Cogden, Chesil in Dorset on the 28th and 29th October. Ben picked up the top prize of £950 in cash and two top of the range Anyfish Anywhere rods.
49 anglers from England, Wales and the Isle of Man competed for the title on Cogden, Chesil, where anglers were greeted with calm conditions on both days. This meant that there were plenty of fish to be caught, but decisions had to be made what species to target, with plaice, dogfish and a sprinkling of other species such as gurnard on the bottom, and plenty of garfish on the surface. Most competitors started bottom fishing early in the matches to take advantage of the tide flow but as this eased most change to surface fishing for Garfish. Small mackerel were a nuisance for those surface fishing with some competitors quite happy to fill their freezers for the coming winter!!!
On the first day competitors needed between 10 and 13 fish to come in the top three in their sections. Ben Bradstock from Honiton, Devon had the best overall catch with 13 fish for 12lb 13oz with a mixed bag of dogfish, plaice, garfish and a gurnard. Runner up on day 1 was Andrew Dugdale from the Isle of Man with 8 fish for 12lb 9oz with a bag of dogfish and plaice. Heaviest fish on day one was a dogfish of 2lb 3oz caught by Joe Arch from Cardiff, runner up heaviest fish was a tie with three fish of 2lb 1oz, two plaice caught by Andrew Dugdale and Ben Bradstock and a dogfish caught by Mark Pinder, from Ipswich.
The competition was divided in to 2 sections of 25 pegs, zone prizes were 1st £100, 2nd £60 and 3rd £35.
The zone positions on day 1 were:-
A zone 1st Ben Bradstock 12lb 13oz.
A zone 2nd Andrew Dugdale 12lb 9oz.
A zone 3rd Kerry Saint 9lb 7oz
B zone 1st Ralph Crosby 8lb 7oz.
B zone 2nd Joe Arch 7lb 12oz
B zone 3rd Lee Collins 7lb 11oz

ALL SAMF MATCHES ARE FISHED ON A CATCH AND RETURN FORMULA, THE FISH ARE MEASURED AND THEN IMMEDIATELY RETURNED. A CONVERSION CHART THEN CONVERTS THE LENGTH TO WEIGHT.

Day 2 saw even calmer condition with anglers still needing between 10 and 16 fish to score well. Top catch was made by Kenny McKoy from Sunderland with 10 fish for 14lb 10oz. Kenny concentrated on bottom fishing throughout the match catching some quality plaice, dogfish and a gurnard. Runner up on day 2 was Ben Bradstock with 16 fish for 8lb 15oz, mainly garfish and 2 dogfish.
Biggest fish on day two was a plaice of 2lb 13oz caught by Kenny McKoy second heaviest fish was also a plaice of 2lb 9oz caught by Mark Rogers from Maidstone.

Day 2 zone winners
A zone 1st Kenny McKoy 14lb 10oz

A Zone 3rd Henry Randell 7lb 13oz

Ben was overall champion with a perfect score of 2 zone wins giving him 2 points. He adapted well to changing conditions altering methods when things went quiet to keep catching. He worked hard, especially on the second day to catch 14 garfish.
Joe Arch ran him close also with a two zone 2nd places giving him 4 points.
Cash prizes down to 11th position overall and 2 extra prizes of donated rods took the list down to 13th place.

Minutes of 2015 AGM – Hythe

Posted by: | Comments (0)

MINUTES OF THE AGM – 30th OCTOBER 2015 – HYTHE
The AGM was opened at 19.27 pm by the chairman, Darren Phillips who welcomed everyone to the meeting, thanking members for a good turnout.

APOLOGIES
Apologies had been received from Rob Neale

MINUTES FROM THE PREVIOUS MEETING AND MATTERS ARISING
The minutes from the previous meeting were circulated prior to the meeting and were proposed as a true record by Hugh Rathbone and seconded by Stuart Littlewood. The only matter arising pointed out by Andy Steele was the Future of SAMF proposals were still ongoing.

CHAIRMANS REPORT
Darren  started by thanking the organisers of the weekend and that everything else he would like to say would be covered during the meeting.

SECRETARIES REPORT
Andy started by saying that it was a nice change to be able to focus on the positives rather than the negatives of the last few years. Membership has increased this year to 180 an increase of 52. Numbers fishing the Masters at 100 was also the best for many years and thanks were given to Martin Reid and his team for organising a good competition which had helped in increasing the numbers. Finances were also in good shape. Once again Andy had sent out 400+ letters to members and past members in January asking them to join.
During the prevbious year Andy had said that he felt it was time for him to retire, with the federation needing new blood to take it forward and  had received numerous requests to stay on with the offer of assistance in the form of a Competition Secretary and a Press Office. The membership agreed these positions and as a result Andy was willing to carry on overseeing the federation, membership, doing the accounts etc. However it was disappointing to report that Andy Dawkins had resigned as Competition Secretary for personal reasons, and now the organising of the Masters has fallen to him again. The committee are now looking for someone to take on this role of Competition Secretary.
Andy went on to thank Darren for all his support throughout the years and also for running the Challenge teams.
Andy also thanked the committee for their work. Andy also thanked members for their support and in particular those in attendance at the meeting. Everything else to be said would be covered during the meeting.

TREASURERS REPORT
Copies of the report had been circulated prior to the meeting and were accepted as a true record on mass by the membership with no questions being asked. The following is the treasurers summary:
The treasurers report shows that SAMFs worth is £9323.67 which is an increase of £897.19 from 2014. This is obviously good news which is a result of cutting costs and an increase in membership. This has enabled me to fund the Masters prize fund and will give us some leeway towards sponsoring some of the challenge matches. Being in a strong position, and as long as we keep membership numbers stable I propose that SAMF subscriptions remain at £20 for 2016.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS
The following people were re-elected to continue as committee members. A volunteer is being sought to take on the role of Competition Secretary
Chairman – Darren Phillips
Vice Chairman – Eddie Painter
Secretary – Andy Steele
Competition Secretary – VACANT
Press Officer – Dene Conway
Treasurer – Mary Steele

AREA REPRESENTATIVES
South West Scotland – None
North West – Bill Lindfield
North Wales – Shane Russell
North East – Bob Gascoigne
Anglia – Dene Conway
Sussex – Chris Snow
Hants & Challenge Match organiser – Darren Phillips
Kent – Saul Page & Richard Yates
Essex – Ian Reynolds
South West – Julian Shambrook
South Wales – Joe Arch
Humberside – Rob Neale
Isle of Man – Andrew Dugdale

CHALLENGE MATCHES
Darren reported that this had been a good year for SAMF having won both the Belgium/Holland and  CAF challenges. Full reports are on the website
Scotland won the recent challenge match in Scotland in what had been a very difficult match in tough conditions. Congratulations go to the Scottish team. Full reports are on the website
We have not got any dates for the 2016 matches which will be published hopefully, in the January newsletter and via the usual internet pages.

WORLD CLUBS CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2016 competition is being held in Belgium and it is expected that we will be looking to enter a team, maybe two,  to represent the AT. Applications from interested anglers are requested.

FINALS 2016
The finals are due to be held in the South West next year. Julian Shambrook made a proposal to take it to Minehead. The idea being that it was a new venue in a new area which would help promote SAMF in that area. Julian told us that the venue and possible HQ would be suitable, however there were some reservations about the venue and the fishing with it being suggested that some anglers would blank. The venue was voted in with some reservations.
Footnote: this offer was subsequently withdrawn after the meeting and we are now looking to take the Masters to Chesil.

PROPOSALS/RULE CHANGES
No proposals for rule changes had been received.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS
A proposal was made by Dene Conway to look at the possibility of having a womans representative, but with no firm proposals or support nothing came of this, however to further this there was a discussion about attracting juniors/youths. Andy pointed out that it was always free for juniors to become members to fish our comps. There was a suggestion to run a challenge match for under 25’s As a result Malcolm Stote volunteered to look at running an age limited comp, funded partly by SAMF.
Mark Sharman raised the point that the wording of ‘qualification’ should be removed when offering non qualifiers the chance to enter the masters. Andy said he would look at this.
MEETING FINISHED AT 20.05 p.m

SAMF UK Masters Results & Press Release

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Masters Press release:
KENT ANGLER DAVID WOOD-BRIGNALL WINS 2015 SAMF UK MASTERS AT HYTHE
Local angler David Wood-Brignall won the 2015 SAMF UK MASTERS on the beaches of Hythe in Kent on the 29th and 30th October.
97 anglers from England, Wales and the Isle of Man competed for the title on Princes and Marine Parades, with near perfect conditions on Friday and calmer conditions on Saturday. This meant that there were plenty of fish caught on the first day with fewer on the second day. The main species caught were whiting codling, dabs & dogfish. There was also a sprinkling of what is meant to be summer species such as Bass, Sole, Plaice, Rays, Gurnard and Black Bream which kept the competitors on their toes because it was these bonus fish that were going to affect the results. On the first day competitors needed between 16 and 35 fish to come in the top two in their sections. Local angler David Wood-Brignall from Romney Marsh had the best overall catch with 21 fish for 19lb 4oz. There were two heaviest fish caught on day one, of equal weight, Thornback Rays of 6lb 1oz caught by Karl Nangle from Grimsby and Shane Russell from Old Conwy, North Wales.

The zone positions on day 1 were:-
A zone 1st Colin Crosby 13lb 7oz.
A zone 2nd Dave Cook 13lb 6oz.
A zone 3rd Saul Page 12lb 7oz

B zone 1st Jimmy Price 13lb 4oz.
B zone 2nd Julian Shambrook 13lb 2oz
B zone 3rd Mark Pinder 11lb 4oz

C Zone 1st Karl Nangle 14lb 4oz
C Zone 2nd Bill Harrison 12lb 5oz
C zone 3rd Richard Yates 11lb 0oz

D Zone 1st David Wood-Brignall 19lb 4oz
D Zone 2nd George Smith 18lb 8oz
D Zone 3rd Brett Bartramm 15lb 9oz

ALL SAMF MATCHES ARE FISHED ON A CATCH AND RETURN FORMULA, THE FISH ARE MEASURED AND THEN IMMEDIATELY RETURNED. A CONVERSION CHART THEN CONVERTS THE LENGTH TO WEIGHT. SEVERAL YEARS AGO SAMF INTRODUCED SIZE LIMITS IN THEIR MAJOR COMPETITIONS ON COD, WHITING AND BASS TO TRY AND ENCOURAGE MORE ANGLERS TO FISH MATCHES. AS A RESULT THIS REDUCED THE ACTUAL NUMBERS OF FISH COUNTING TO AN ANGLERS SCORE BUT GAVE EVERY ANGLER THE POSSIBILITY OF DOING WELL EVEN ON THE LAST CAST BY CATCHING A LARGE FISH.

Day 2 saw the wind and the sea had dropped making sizeable fish more difficult to catch but anglers still needed between 6 and 18 fish to score well. Top catch was made by Kirk Watson from Rainham, Kent with 18 fish for 10lb 1oz. The two biggest fish were a Cod of 4lb 8oz caught by Andrew Hutchings from Cardiff and a Dogfish of 2lb 12oz caught by Rob Bates from Canterbury.

Day 2 zone winners
A zone 1st Andrew Hutchings 5lb 8oz
A zone 2nd Joe Arch 5lb 0oz
A Zone 3rd George Smith 3lb 6oz

B zone 1st Marc Corlett 7lb 8oz
B zone 2nd David Wood-Brignall 3lb 7oz
B Zone 3rd Don Jenner 2lb 8oz

C Zone 1st Saul Page 6lb 7oz
C Zone 2nd Stuart Littlewood 4lb 9oz
C Zone 3rd Michael Rycroft 4lb 6oz

D Zone 1st Kirk Watson 10lb 1oz
D Zone 2nd Rob Bates 9lb 3oz
D Zone 3rd Bill Lindfield 7lb 6oz

FINAL POSITIONS

1 David Wood-Brignall 3 pts £1000
2 Saul Page 4 pts £750
3 George Smith 5 pts £500
4 Rob Bates 6 pts (1022 fish pts) £400
5 Juliaan Shambrook 6 pts (824 fish pts) £300
6 Karl Nangle 6 pts (801 fish pts) £200
7 Richard Yates 8 pts £150
8 Dave Cook 9 pts (942 fish pts) £100
9 Mark Pinder 9pts (711 fish pts) £100
10 Bill Lindfield 10pts £100
11 Craig Buy 11pts (848 fish pts) £50
12 Richard Burt 11pts (622 fish pts) £50
13 Stuart Littlewood 11pts (606 fish pts) £50
14 Darren Phillips 12pts (805 fish pts) £50
15 Colin Crosby 12pts (761 fish pts) £50

Three Ladies fished this year:
Nicole Conway – 53 points
Kimberley Lawn – 44 points
Ladies Champion was Heather Lindfield who successfully defended her title with 36 points.

A pairs competition was run within the match and winners were:-
1 Richard Yates (Dover) & Saul Page (Deal) – £200
2 Craig Buy (Colchester) & Richard Burt (Clacton) – £100
3 George Smith (Grimsby) & Gary Hutson (Cleethorpe) – £60

David, who was fishing his first SAMF Masters, was overall champion with a 1st place and a 2nd place in his zone giving him 3 points. On the first day his catch included a codling of 4lb 8oz and on the second day despite a slow start came through with a double shot of bass and 4 late whiting which saw him gain second zone place and the overall winner.

Saul Page ran him close also with a zone 3rd and a 1st giving him 4 points.
Cash prizes down to 15th position overall and section pools for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, plus the two heaviest fish each day, giving a total cash prize fund in excess of £6000, plus tackle prizes and trophies. SAMF is grateful in particular to our member Julian Shambrook of ANYFISH ANYWHERE who donated rods for the prize table. We are also grateful to Paul Fenech, another member, from SEA ANGLER MAGAZINE for also donating items for the prize table

Everyone who attended agreed that once again the event had been successful, and this venue will be used again for major events.
Next years final is scheduled to be fished in the South West in October/November. Qualifying matches are already being run around the country. Contact Andy Steele, 01772 611597, for details of local events and how to organise qualifiers.
