Dillington Pond – Open – 10th February 2019

Heavy rain on Friday and more forecast Saturday night and Sunday morning meant the open would be switched to the pond which we haven’t fished for a while. We had fourteen booked in so no more than a club match really and a far cry from the days when our open was a big event with 80 plus anglers from all over

Dillington Pond – 16th December 2018

After three weeks of not catching very much, I was really hoping we’d be able to get on the river for once and a nice days fishing would also be very welcome! Of course, after virtually no rain all week, Mother Nature once again conspired against us and it chucked it down on Saturday. I had to pop to Taunton and on my

Dillington Pond – Xmas Fayre – 9th December 2018

The Xmas Fayre match is always well attended with several anglers fishing their only competition of the year and I have to say it’s a bit of nightmare to organise with getting everybody to pay their entry fees and trying to sort food and prizes. I must admit I was starting to find it quite stressful, especially when my dad was taken into

Dillington Pond – 25th November 2018

It was supposed to be round three of the V.E.S. League today but loads of rain on Friday had me fearing the worst, Saturday lunchtime the river was still really high and with more rain forecast the decision was made to move it to the pond. It’s always a difficult call as the river does fall really quickly and there was chance it could have been

Dillington Pond – Ilminster vs Taunton – 11th November 2018

After a really enjoyable match at Stathe, it was our turn to host Taunton for the return leg on the Isle which has been in brilliant form but of course Mother Nature decided to intervene and loads of rain on Friday put paid to that with the river in the fields at Hambridge. I have to say at this point a massive

Dillington Pond – 16th September 2018

I was back at Dillington for the final Summer League match and Jake had one hand on the title as he was over 30lb ahead of Nick in second place but he wasn’t counting any chickens yet as the pond is more than capable of throwing up big weights. After breakfast, Nick announced the draw and I was hoping for one of the

Dillington Pond – 9th September 2018

After really struggling in my last three outings, I was just hoping to catch a few fish in todays match! I got to the bowling club nice and early and another excellent breakfast set me up for the day before I paid my pools and waited for the draw. With all the anglers fed and watered, Nick put all the balls in

Dillington Pond – 2nd September 2018

During the heat wave and with the pond really low, two of the league matches were postponed so with one rescheduled for this week, I booked in as I’d enjoyed the last match. At the draw there were a few different faces from last week, it was lovely to see Paul Homewood and Terry ‘The Toast’ Morgan again and Dave ‘Dumbo’ Phillips was fishing

Dillington Pond – 26th August 2018

My first visit here this year, I had booked in a few weeks back but during the hot weather the water level was so low the last two matches have been cancelled. I’d also been chatting to Nicky Collins at Todber a while back and he loves his silvers fishing so I was telling him about Dillington and he said it sounded right

Dillington Pond – IBC Winter League 6 – 31st December 2017

It would have been nice to fish the river once more before the end of the year but the weather had other ideas, the Isle was in the fields at Hambridge on Thursday and more rain on Friday, Saturday and forecast for Sunday meant the only sensible (and safe) option was to put it on the pond. I don’t mind to be
