Summerhayes – Open – 26th August 2019

On Bank Holiday weekends Pete always runs two matches where the pools are split equally between carp and silvers which I think is a great idea. A quick pit stop for a ‘Billy No Mates’ breakfast at the Toby before heading to Bridgwater. It was supposed to be another boiling hot day but as I pulled into the car park, it was

Dillington – 25th August 2019

I’d really enjoyed the last match and was looking forward to having another go this weekend although the forecast was for a scorching hot day, not ideal conditions for skimmer fishing! We met at the bowling club for breakfast and it was nice to see Langport invader, Baz Morgan fishing again and also Paul Homewood, John Dursley and Ian Burton along with

Summerhayes – Open – 18th August 2019

For part two of my double header I was back at Summerhayes but on Sellicks this time, a lake I really like but for the silvers you ideally need to be down either side rather than at the top end and preferably on the far side, pegs 17-21. I met Stevie P at the Toby and it was rammed with loads of

Summerhayes – 17th August 2019

For the third of the ‘Carry On’ series of matches we were at Summerhayes although with no silvers pools I’d have to fish for vermin and I wasn’t really too sure how to go about it! I had a quick ‘Billy No Mates’ stop at the Toby for breakfast before heading to Bridgy. It was nice seeing everybody again, including Sam Powell

Dillington – 11th August 2019

With most of the Dillington matches clashing with the Chard league, there were only a few of these fixtures I could make which is a shame. The pond had also been very low due to the farmer irrigating his spuds but it’s filling up again now. We met at the Bowling Club for breakfast and it was nice to see everybody again

Summerhayes – Open – 4th August 2019

My first visit for a while and when I phoned Pete to book in, he said it was on Longs which was the lake I was on last time when I finished second in the silvers with 11lb 9oz behind Jeff Sparkes with 21lb odd. Of course it didn’t take him long to get wind I was fishing and he was soon

Three Wheels On My Wagon!

What do you do when the ‘wheels come off’, it happens to everyone in every sport at one time or another (maybe not Man City at the moment) but how do you deal with it? The trouble with fishing comes because there are so many variables, in snooker if you’re not potting balls you can put the practice in or even hire

Perry St Pond – Spring League 9 – 28th July 2019

The final match arrived and the two gladiators prepared to do battle one last time, in the red corner was Steve ‘The Carp Slayer’ Bush and in the orange corner was Brendon ‘The Beastmaster’ Ions (aka The Tart). Only one point separating them after eight matches but who would emerge from the ring victorious? Bushy held the slender advantage and a section

Sadborow – 21st July 2019

With nothing on, Hoff suggested a knock up at Sadborow and as it’s always a good day out, I jumped at the chance. A few of us met at ‘Spoons for breakfast and when Picky asked for a small one, I presumed he was still watching what he ate to maintain that Adonis like physique. The food arrived in good time with
