Hebditch’s Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 1st March 2020

Barney’s Pairs is always one of my favourite matches although I can never seem to keep hold of a partner and I’m getting concerned I may need to change my deodorant! This trend continued with Andy Saunders my latest partner for this match, we’ve also used several venues in various combinations over the years. Ideally we’d have fished the Isle (Barney’s favourite

Hebditch’s Pond – Chris Patten Xmas Fayre – 15th December 2019

Earlier in the week I had thought there was a really good chance of us fishing the Xmas Fayre on the river but loads of rain as we approached the weekend soon put paid to that. As I was fishing Todber on Saturday, Hurf and Rob said they’d have a look and let me know what the state of play was. To

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 12th May 2019

For part two of my double header I was fishing my first match with Stoke AA at Hebditch’s Pond, a venue I always enjoy fishing. It was for charity and the format was something a bit different in that we’d fish for four hours, have an hours break to weigh in and have something to eat before fishing another four hours (so

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 30th September 2018

I always look forward to fishing Hebditch’s pond but because of the hot weather and low water levels we haven’t fished it since February when it was a bit of a struggle so hopefully we’d get a few more bites today. As always we would be donating a proportion of the entry fee to charity and this time the proceeds from the match and

Hebditch’s Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 25th February 2018

Always one of my favourite matches of the year and an event myself and Justin have a pretty good record in, so when I text him to make sure he was fishing and he replied he couldn’t make it this year, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to find anyone to partner me! Scott Jackson had mentioned a while back he might

Hebditch’s Pond – 28th December 2017

This time last year, I arranged a match out the pond which proved very popular with seventeen anglers fishing and I got asked by several people if I was doing the same this year but after lots of initial interest, there were only going to be a few of us so I was just going to fish Summerhayes on the Friday instead. To

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 17th December 2017

I was talking to Harry recently and happened to mention it would be nice to fish the pond again and with a free date this Sunday and Harry actually having the day off, a match was arranged and as always we would all make a donation to a charity of his choosing. With only limited places available, these were offered to the

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Pairs Open – 9th July 2017

As we hadn’t fished Hebditch’s pond for a while, Hurf arranged a charity pairs open but with a twist, it would be totally blind meaning you wouldn’t even know which pond you were on until you’d drawn a peg and you wouldn’t know who your partner was until after the match! I must admit I’m not really a fan of this format

Hebditch’s Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 26th February 2017

I always look forward to Barney’s Pairs Open and as per usual, it was well attended, with 18 anglers fishing this year. With Steve and Cindy back from an amazing trip to New Zealand, we met at the Oak for the draw and breakfast. Most of the usual crew were in attendance and it was also lovely to see Dean Morrison and Paul Adams

Hebditch’s Pond – 30th October 2016

With no scheduled matches this week, Harry was keen to hold another charity match on the pond, it hadn’t been fished since August when the level was right down and the weights were a lot lower than normal so with the level back up, hopefully it would fish better today. For todays charity, Harry decided to donate the money to the fund to help rebuild
