Fishing in France – Baz Morgan – Part 6

Be careful what you wish for. On my latest visit to France l was sitting in a bar (nothing new there then) overlooking the lake in the small town of Quintin in the Cotes d’Amour. While enjoying a coffee l noticed an advertisement for a fishing match a few days later on the lake. I have fished here on a couple of

Summerhayes – Open – 6th May 2019

With it being a long weekend I booked into the match on Sellicks at Summerhayes, a quick pit stop at the Toby for breakfast and then onto Bridgwater. I arrived in plenty of time and the first person I saw was Big Frank who had turned up to pleasure fish on Longs, I had a quick chat before going to pay my

Perry St Pond – Spring League 3 – 5th May 2019

For round three my destination was A section at Perry St and I was hoping to draw pegs 4, 5 or 17 as they all have plenty of room and they’ve been the most consistent pegs in the first two matches. After another fantastic Millfield cafe breakfast we headed out to Perry St to do the draw. The Sadborow section drew first

River Monsters Book Review

I love watching fishing on TV and in recent years one of the biggest and most popular shows has been River Monsters with Jeremy Wade and at the Big One recently, Hurf and me both got books signed by the great man himself! Shows like River Monsters and Robson Green’s Extreme Fishing popularised fishing for more exotic species in far flung locations

Hogsbrook Lakes – Charity Match – 28th April 2019

I saw this match advertised on Facebook and asked the Tart if he fancied it, he said yes and got us tickets, Andy Saunders also said he was up for it and would give me a lift – top man! I have fished these lakes many years ago with Chard, the first match on the bottom lake I won with 1lb 5oz!,

Todber Manor – Open – 24th April 2019

After having probably the best day’s silvers fishing I’ve ever had on Friday, I couldn’t wait to get back to Todber for another go, so I booked into the Wednesday open. The weather was back to normal with heavy rain and wind forecast, I met Scotty and Shep at Cartgate for breakfast before making our way to the fishery. As I walked

Sadborow – Spring League 2 – 21st April 2019

For round two of the Spring League, my section would be at Sadborow and with the forecast for another blazing hot day, I was hoping to avoid the two pegs behind the back of the island, as I felt all the fish would be in the open water pegs. After breakfast at ‘Spoons we headed to Perry St to do the draw,

Todber Manor – Open – 19th April 2019

With it being a long weekend, I always try a fit in a couple of matches and with nothing on locally, I put my name down for the open at Todber on Good Friday. I was up really early and after a quick pit stop at Cartgate, I made good time and was soon pulling into the fishery car park, the match

Summerhayes – 14th April 2019

With Longs and Sellicks both fishing well for silvers with around 20lb needed to win, I was looking forward to my first visit of the year so phoned Pete to book in, only for him to say there were club matches on both ponds and Sunday’s open would be on Willow! I messaged Jeff in the week to find out if he

The Future’s Bright, The Future’s Orange

I’ve never been much of a tackle tart (those that have seen my gear, can testify to this!) if I’m happy with something I see no need to change it and in the case of bigger items like seat boxes and poles, I can’t afford to buy the latest model every year. So if I find a particular range of floats that
