Perry St Pond – Spring League 1 – 7th April 2019

For this year’s league, there would be three sections, two at Perry St and one at Sadborow, for the first match there would be an open draw and you would be in the same section of seven anglers for three matches and then there would be another open draw, which I think is a really fair way of doing it. We met

Perry St Pond – 24th March 2019

With the Spring League starting in two weeks, this match was a bit of a practice for those fishing the league and after a really good day at the Big One yesterday, I woke up, the sun was shining and I was really looking forward to this match and before that, another lovely Millfield cafe breakfast. I made a flask and went

Perry St Pond – 30th December 2018

For the last outing of the year I booked into the Chard match at Perry St and I have to say it’s nice to just be able to turn up for breakfast and not have to worry about pegs, pools and everything else that goes with running matches. We met at ‘Spoons and the hash browns were back, was this a good

Perry St Pond – 24th June 2018

It was the last league match this week and I was standing in for Yardie, we all knew which pegs we’d be on and my home for the day would be peg 16. Not my favourite area if I’m honest although Picky had done well off it in the last match. After another excellent Millfield café brekkie, we all headed out the pond,

Perry St Pond – 10th June 2018

I thought I was standing in for Chilly this week but when I got to the café, Les said I was fishing for Grandad Young instead and I wasn’t overly impressed when somebody told me I’d either be on peg 1 or 17 today. When Les opened the draw sequence envelope, I was on peg 1 – great! It’s a peg I

Perry St Pond – 27th May 2018

I was standing in for Picky again for this match and I was hoping I’d do better than the last time I fished for him! On the plus side, it would be very difficult to do any worse! On Saturday night we had thunderstorms with crazy lightning and the forecasters were saying there was a chance of more on Sunday – great! On waking up,

Perry St Pond – 15th April 2018

Standing in for Oz this week and I was hoping to do a better job than I did for Picky two weeks ago! We met at Millfield café and there was a full house of anglers fishing so no empty pegs next to Little Jack Horner this week! Also on Saturday, the weather had been lovely, proper spring like although any hope

Perry St Pond – 1st April 2018

After struggling on Friday, I was hoping for better things today, also it was April Fool’s Day but we’ve got our ‘Fool’ all year round, the Tart (aka Tail End Charlie). We met at ‘Spoons for breakfast again and there was a full house fishing today including Exeter Mike who’d been climbing the walls at home after breaking his wrist. I was fishing

Perry St Pond – 25th March 2018

After being snowed off last week, it was rescheduled for today with people on the same pegs although as a stand-in, I was fishing for Chilly last Sunday and Exeter Mike this time around which put me on peg 14 so I hadn’t moved far! The Tart was obviously desperate to get his pound back as he’d been out three times in the week practising

Perry St Pond – 24th December 2017

With it being Xmas Eve I wasn’t going to fish but the thought of going nearly two weeks without my fishing fix didn’t really appeal. If possible I wanted to stay local but I knew Ilminster didn’t have anything on so I text Les who said they were going out Perry St and I could fish, perfect. Of course it didn’t take
