Dillington Pond – Evening League – 28th July 2010

I turned up for the final fixture, knowing that realistically I couldn’t win the league but second and third places were up for grabs, I just needed to beat Martin and Alvin (which is a lot easier said than done!). There were only five of us fishing tonight so at least we should have plenty of room. I drew the disabled platform


Dillington Pond – Summer League – 25th July 2010

I wasn’t hopeful of a result today as I just can’t get my head round Dillington and keep trying to sort out quality when I should just be getting my head down and catching whatever is in front me. At the draw there were 11 of us, including Richard White who hasn’t fished for ages. I drew peg 2 which is on


Summerhayes – Evening Match – 22nd July 2010

After coming close last Thursday I was itching to get back for another go so booked in for this week’s evening match. There were 11 fishing this week including venue expert Alvin, Scott and Roger Russell, Martin Heard and Bruce Hunt. After a cup of coffee and paying my pools, it was time to draw. I fancied another go at 23 but

Perry St Pond – Spring League 10 – 18th July 2010

The final match arrived and I was guaranteed a corner peg today, as was my nemesis Janders. He paid me the £5 side bet we had on the league as I was thirty points ahead of him – cheers John! He’d phoned me earlier in the week and we convinced each other we’d draw pegs 1 and 20 (crap) rather the fliers


Summer League Table

Leighton Cox wanted me to put the Summer League table on here, the only way I could do it was by scanning it in and uploading it as a picture. Hope this is ok, if you click on the picture you can see it better.


Summerhayes – Evening Match – 15th July 2010

After two bad matches I thought I might as well make it three in a row and fish the Thursday evening match at Summerhayes. The weather was atrocious and with the match being on Sellicks where 14.5 metres minimum is a must on most pegs, it could be hard going. There were eight hardy anglers (or crazy fools) booked in including Scotty,


Dillington Pond – Evening League – 14th July 2010

With only two matches left in the league I was hoping to stop the slide that has seen me drop from first place in the last match. The weather was overcast and it looked like it might rain and there was also a blustery wind. There were seven of us fishing and the pegging was pretty spread out, I drew peg 12,

Private Pond – Summer League – 11th July 2010

For round five we were fishing a private pond and I couldn’t wait as there were supposed to be big roach, rudd, skimmers and tench and big weights were expected. The pond is primarily a carp venue and we decided to make it a silvers only match. There were thirteen of us at the draw and I pulled out peg 1 which

Perry St Pond – Spring League 9 – 4th July 2010

First of all, sorry for the lateness of this weeks blog but I’ve just moved house and I never had any internet access and I’ve been climbing the walls! The penultimate round arrived and although I was out of the running in the league, I was still in line for a corner peg (as were 7 others). I stuck my hand in
