Revels Fishery – Silvers Open – 14th January 2023

I was really looking forward to this one and it’s great to see fisheries holding more silvers matches although once again the weather was looking grim and I’m beginning to expect nothing less at weekends! Norts joined us for breakfast before we headed to Revels, only seven of us fishing today (several cried off due to the weather) with three on Middle

Summerhayes – Open – 8th January 2023

The forecast was pretty grim again for the weekend and I think everybody is fed up with it now, we met at the bowling club for breakfast where Drew looked after us and the food and banter was top notch. Then we headed to the fishery and there was a decent turnout of 17 considering the weather and the fact there were

Summerhayes – Open – 2nd January 2023

After a couple of bad results to round off 2022, I was hoping for better things in my last match of the festive period and the first of the New Year. Summerhayes was the destination and once again Nick sorted us out with breakfast and we all bunged a fiver in the charity pot. I was hoping we’d be on Sellicks but

2022 Yearly Review

I’ve decided to do something a little different with my yearly review this time around. In previous years, I’ve just done a shortened rehash of every match which makes for a rather lengthy post that I’m sure is as boring for you to read as it is for me to write! Hopefully, you follow the blog and regularly read my posts so

Revels Fishery – Silvers Open – 31st December 2022

I really enjoyed this match last year, there was a brilliant turnout and despite the weather being atrocious, the weights were really close with just ounces separating several places. It was a case of deja vu as the forecast was just as bad for today. I met Nick and Harry at the Airfield for breakfast before heading to the venue, the rain

Ilminster Angling Association – The Open

Following on from the earlier post about the IAA Xmas Fayre and its winners, I’ve done the same with the Open which was sponsored by Enterprise Angling for many years. The earliest result I could find for the IAA Open was from 22nd February 1976, I thought it might be quite interesting to list the numbers who fished and weighed in where

Revels Fishery – Open – 27th December 2022

For my third match in four days, we were heading to Revels and I was really looking forward to it although I was beginning to flag a little bit after another rude 5:45 alarm wake up! Breakfast at the Airfield was decent again before heading to the fishery. Despite quite a few of the regulars fishing a big pairs match at another

Summerhayes – Boxing Day Open – 26th December 2022

I always try and fit a few matches in over the Xmas period so Summerhayes was my next destination. Nick very kindly supplied breakfast again so some more money went into the charity pot. Les B said he fancied fishing Summerhayes for the first time so met us in the car park and followed us there. I didn’t think there’d be loads

Acorn Fishery – Xmas Match – 24th December 2022

I really enjoyed my first visit to Acorn a few weeks back so when I saw they had a Xmas match on Saturday, I booked in along with Parker ‘The Pole’ and Nick P. A really early start was required and with very little in the way of breakfast options, Nick very kindly supplied some lovely bacon and sausage baps and we

Revels Fishery – Open – 20th December 2022

What a difference a couple of days make! From lakes everywhere being iced over and unfishable (unless you’re particularly determined or stupid!), the temperature rose to being almost tropical. I met Parker ‘The Pole’ at the Airfield in Yeovil for breakfast which was really good before we headed to Revels. Another brilliant turnout for a Tuesday with 19 anglers in attendance and
