Revels Fishery – Open – 3rd May 2022

For my third match in as many days, I was back at Revels and after a Billy No Mates breakfast in Yeovil I arrived in good time and was one of the first ones there. The car park soon started filling up and along with all the usual suspects Rich Chave was back and on for a hat trick of silvers wins

Summerhayes – Open – 2nd May 2022

For the Bank Holiday Monday we were at Summerhayes and the match was on Sellicks again, I met Nick and Terry for breakfast in Taunton and then it was on to Bridgwater. Another great turnout of 17 anglers including Adie Bishop who I haven’t seen for ages. All too soon it was time for the draw and as I’d booked in first

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 1st May 2022

Another Bank Holiday weekend means lots more fishing, first up was another charity event at Hebditch’s followed by Summerhayes on the Monday and then I’d also booked Tuesday off to go to Revels. Most of us met at the bowling club for the obligatory breakfast (and very nice it was too) before we headed to the memorial hall in Stoke-sub-Hamdon for the

Revels Fishery – 24th April 2022

The next Stoke match was at Revels and I was really looking forward to it, especially after Tuesday’s open had seen some good silvers weights. I was up early as a lot of us were meeting in Yeovil for breakfast. As we walked in, Andy S noticed a vending machine selling dinosaurs so he stuck a nugget in and bought one. It

New Hybrid Elastic Review

Back in 2020, I won some Hybrid Elastic after entering a competition on Facebook, I did a review at the time (which can be found here) and then updated that post nearly a year later with the elastic still going strong. Well it’s now a further eight months on from that update and it hasn’t needed changing (maybe I just don’t catch

Summerhayes – Open – 18th April 2022

For my third match in four days, I was back at Summerhayes and it was on Longs this time. After meeting Nick and Jenny in Taunton for breakfast we headed to the venue. The car park was filling up fast with 21 anglers booked in, unfortunately one of those was The Tart who was seriously flagging after fishing every day. With a

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 17th April 2022

Match two of three and I always look forward to these charity matches, a cracking venue, great banter with a lovely bunch of people and hopefully a few fish too. As always we got the day off to the perfect start with a fantastic breakfast at the bowling club (thanks Charlotte and Drew) before heading to the draw. After everybody had arrived

Summerhayes – Open – 15th April 2022

With it being Easter and a long weekend, I always try and fit a few matches in so would be at Summerhayes on Friday and Monday and Hebditch’s on the Sunday for a charity match which I was really looking forward to. I could have fished at Summerhayes on the Saturday as well but I just can’t do four days on the

Stoke AA Presentation Night

Saturday 9th April I haven’t been to a presentation evening for a very long time as fishing for trophies just sort of fizzled out with the clubs I belonged to, I can’t really recall why and I have to say I rather miss it! Anyway due to Covid, Stoke didn’t have one last year so this would be a double one. Chris

Summerhayes – Open – 10th April 2022

It was back to Summerhayes for another match on Sellicks this week and after a frost with 20 anglers fishing, I felt it would fish hard like the last time we were here with around 60lb to win overall and 8lb to take the silvers. I met Nick in Taunton for breakfast before we headed to the fishery and very nice it
