Summerhayes – Open – 28th August 2017

When I booked in, Pete said we’d be on Longs today which I was looking forward to it as it’s been fishing really well with Roger Russell winning Fridays silvers match with over 28lb of skimmers from peg 33. I stopped off on the way and had breakfast at the Little Chef, which as always was good although a tad expensive. The traffic

Dillington Pond – Summer League 9 – 27th August 2017

After the last match where I drew peg 24 and never had a fish under the bush, I was hoping for a nice peg on the far side or the bottom bank this week. Another great Ilminster Bowling Club brekkie set me up for the day but before it was time to draw, Hurf announced that todays peg fees would be donated to

Summerhayes – Open – 20th August 2017

It was back to Summerhayes this week for the first time since June and looking at the latest results on Sellicks, the carp have been getting their heads down and proving to be a real nuisance for the silvers anglers.

Howard was on peg 1 with Shane on 5 and Exeter Mike

Todber Manor – Open – 5th August 2017

After a really good week where I saw one of my all time favourite bands, Teenage Bottlerocket, in Bristol, I was looking forward to fishing Todber for the first time but then came down with a stinking cold on Thursday and wasn’t sure I’d feel well enough to go. When the Tart text me to say he was fishing, a day in my sick

A Long Time?

A recent match really got me thinking about the time we spend on the bank at weekends, most of the matches I fish are six hours in length, that’s a long time right? Well I’m not so sure it is, if you’re bagging up, time flies by and by the same token if you are really trying your hardest to put a few
