River Parrett – Ilminster Warehouse League 7 – 2nd February 2020

The final match of the Warehouse League arrived and Andy had one hand on the title with a three point cushion although with ten anglers booked in, mathematically he could be caught but would need to blow out big time. I was lying in second spot but with only two points between me and third, I could be overhauled as well, so

River Parrett – Open – 31st December 2019

Day three of my fishing trilogy arrived (along with another 5:30 alarm!) and I have to admit I was starting to flag a little bit! It had been touch or go whether this match was going to go ahead, the river had been in the fields but was fining down nicely until Saturday when there were some pumping shenanigans and it rose

River Parrett – Ilminster Warehouse League 5 – 8th December 2019

For round five we decided to use Midelney and Muchelney, two of my favourite stretches that are rammed with fish, they are SLAC waters so we can’t close them for the match but I popped down on Saturday to have a look and put some pegs in. I had originally planned to put three above and below the bridge at Midelney and

River Parrett – Stoke vs Ilminster – 1st September 2019

For the away leg of this inter-club fixture we were at Parrett Works, a stretch of river I don’t think I’ve ever fished before. It was all a bit last minute as originally I’d arranged for this match to be on the 22nd Sep but due to a fixture clash I had to hastily try and squeeze it in and get enough

River Parrett – Langport vs Stoke – 7th July 2019

I’m really enjoying these inter-club matches as you get to fish some different venues, see some faces I haven’t seen for years and the crack is always good. I have fished the Parrett near Oath before, back in the Langport League days and Ilminster used to have some matches on the stretch at Wick which is a little further up. It’s a

River Parrett – Ilminster Warehouse League 7 – 17th February 2019

For the final Warehouse League match we decided to head to Midelney and Muchelney again with a section at each. After breakfast we headed to the river and there were no pleasure anglers so we decided to have three on the Isle and four on the Parrett. As far as the league was concerned, I went into this match with a one

River Parrett – Ilminster Warehouse League 5 – 13th January 2019

Still scratching my head regarding where to go for this league, I decided to try the free water on the Parrett at Muchelney, similar to the match we had at Midelney, we obviously couldn’t close the water or peg it so we would just turn up on the morning. I popped out to have a look on Saturday and Terry ‘The Toast’

River Parrett – Langport League – 29th July 2007

After even more rain (will it ever end?), this was another match I wasn’t looking forward to. I did the draw and yet again avoided any end pegs. In three matches I’ve managed one end peg for the team – not a good ratio. My destination for today was peg C2 at Cocklemoor, I got there and the river was chocolate and

Langport League – River Parrett – 15th July 2007

After our fourth place in the last match I was hoping for another decent performance from the team in this match. At the draw I once again managed to avoid any end pegs but thankfully also avoided the dreaded scales or weighboards. My peg was C7 on the Coombe stretch where I’ve done alright in the past. The river looked in good

Langport League – River Parrett – 1st July 2007

During the three years I fished this league with the Chard Remains team we have been runner’s up twice and winners of the knockout cup, could we go one better this year? After loads of rain for what seemed like weeks I was sure this one was going to be called off. To my suprise the river actually looked in pretty good
