Dillington Pond – Enterprise Angling Summer League 5 – 18th July 2021

I missed the previous two matches but the last one fished a lot better with Baz weighing 13lb and Chris H in second place with 11lb, some smaller skimmers were also featuring in catches which is good to see. The breakfast club assembled at the bowling club and the food was as fantastic as always, along with the banter, it just gets

River Parrett – Novice Shield – 11th July 2021

For the second Stoke AA river match we were at Kingsbury and I was really looking forward to it although with a 7:00 draw time, breakfast (the best bite of the day!) was looking off the menu (excuse the pun). Thankfully The Grand Wizard came to the rescue and spoke to Kirsty from The Ranch and she very kindly agreed to open

Avalon Fisheries – 4th July 2021

I fished my first match at Avalon in December last year and had a really nice day catching two good bream, skimmers, roach, and a decent perch for 11lb 11oz plus two big carp which didn’t count. This one wasn’t a silvers only match but I really fancied fishing for the bream and skimmers again as good weights are often recorded. Awake

Leon Boots Co. Review

I was recently contacted by a very nice chap from Leon Boots Co after he was given the blog details from a mate of his, to ask if I wanted to review a pair of their Ultralight wellies. Of course I said yes and to be honest the offer came at quite an opportune time, I own a pair of Skee-Tex moon

The Sedges – 27th June 2021

For the latest Stoke match it was at The Sedges on the canal lake, the usual suspects assembled for another fantastic breakfast at the bowling club (Andy B was due to join us but decided to have a lie in!) before we headed off in convoy behind ‘Breaker, breaker, rubber duck Morgan’ who took us on a very scenic route to the

Covey Fisheries – Open – 20th June 2021

I was booked in for the Dillington match today but after losing some fish, the club imposed a keepnet ban which obviously meant the fixture would have to be re-arranged, so I was left searching around for a match to fish. I’d booked Monday off work as I knew I’d be knackered after fishing both days so was desperate to fish somewhere

River Parrett – Evening Cup – 19th June 2021

I really enjoyed fishing the Stoke matches on the Parrett last year and their first match of the new season is always the Evening Cup, something a bit different for me because it’s on a Saturday and as the name suggests, it’s in the evening! There were 21 booked in which is just fantastic and with it being a 14:30 draw time,

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 13th June 2021

Before I get onto this weeks report, I had the sad news yesterday that Ray Wickham had passed away on Friday, he’d been unwell for some time. Like me, Ray loved his silvers fishing and I partnered him a couple of times in two day pairs festivals at Summerhayes and we had a good record, winning one and finishing second in the

New Bait-Tech products for 2021

Obviously 2020 will be remembered for all the wrong reasons and one of the consequences of the pandemic was that pretty much everything was cancelled, things like The Big One fishing show didn’t happen and many tackle firms held off on releasing their new products. When Bait-Tech finally announced what they had planned for this year, it was doubly exciting so here’s

Todber Manor – Fish’O’Mania Qualifier – 9th June 2021

So far this year, my fishing has probably been more varied and challenging than ever before and although I’ve struggled I’ve also really enjoyed doing some different things. However, it has also made me realise my own limitations, to be consistently successful these days, realistically you have to concentrate on a few venues or a couple of methods because it’s no coincidence
