Acorn Fishery – Open – 6th May 2024

Bank Holiday Monday and a trip up to Acorn for their open which was well attended with 26 anglers fishing. Des was in charge of proceedings and asked Zoe to draw for him, she pulled out a good one in the shape of peg 10, then there was the usual scrum as everybody delved into the bag. Nick got number 4 on

Summerhayes – 5th May 2024

Note – I’m not sure what’s going on with Facebook but they removed my last post linking to the blog so if you commented and I didn’t get chance to reply, I apologise. I have queried it with FB but I’m not holding my breath it will be resolved anytime soon! Sunday we were at Summerhayes for a Stoke club match on

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 4th May 2024

Another long weekend due to a Bank Holiday (is it really May already!) and I was fishing all three days starting with another trip to Todber. After breakfast we arrived at the fishery and it was nice to see Steve P who had booked in last minute. Guy announced the draw and I decided to wait and have the last ticket in

Dillington – IAA Summer League 2 – 28th April 2024

For round 2, we all knew which lake we’d be on and which section of three pegs we’d be in and with whom. It was pegs 16, 17 or 18 at Dillington for me and although it had been the hardest of the three mini sections in the first round, I really fancied 18 after having a lovely day on the feeder

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 27th April 2024

After drawing peg 63 in the last two matches and not doing very well, I was hoping for a change of scenery this week. I decided I was going to have the last peg in the bucket and hope 63 had gone by then! It was still quite chilly and spring is definitely taking its time to arrive, after picking up some

Summerhayes – Open – 21st April 2024

The following day we headed to Summerhayes for the open on Longs, 23 anglers fishing today and incredibly I managed to draw peg 13 for the second match on the trot. Its a peg I’ve been on a lot recently, brilliant for silvers and after all the time I’ve spent sat on it, you’d think I’d know how to fish it by

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 20th April 2024

Saturday we were back at Todber and although the weather looked a bit brighter, it was still deceptively nippy. A full house again as these matches continue to be popular with some fantastic silvers anglers in attendance. When Guy announced the draw, I was fairly near the end of the queue and along with everyone else, was hoping to see 75 on

Coombe Farm – IAA Summer League 1 – 14th April 2024

This year the Summer League was starting a little earlier and was basically the same format as the previous year apart from a few little tweaks. Before the first match Rob did a draw to decide who would be at each venue. For the first round, it would be draw and choose which would determine your section of three anglers for the

Acorn Fishery – Open – 13th April 2024

Saturday we headed to Clevedon for the latest of Chris Fox’s opens, the draw time is now a bit later at 9:45 but I still managed to be running late and messaged Nick to say I’d meet him up there for breakfast. Bellies full we headed to Acorn and with a full house of 28 anglers, it was pretty busy in the

Summerhayes – Open – 7th April 2024

Before I get on to Sunday’s report, the previous evening it was Stoke AA’s presentation night at the working mens club. It was well attended and before the trophies were handed out, the clubs very own magician, Bob Pamplin, entertained us with a selection of tricks. After being suitably amazed and mystified, the second half of the double act and our host
