Dillington Pond – Evening League 10 – 31st August 2011

The last match finally arrived and it couldn’t be any closer in the league with Alvin winning and me and Moses just 1.5 points behind. Realistically I didn’t think Alvin could be caught because he needed to be last in his section with either me or Moses winning ours. We met a little earlier and decided to fish from 5:30 to 8:30,


Summerhayes – Open – 28th August 2011

After picking Janders up it was off to Summerhayes, the match was on Long’s again and I wasn’t confident of breaking the jinx. There was a good turnout of twenty anglers and after a coffee it was soon time to draw, I was near the end of the queue and pulled out peg 4 which put me on the far side yet


Dillington Pond – Royal Oak Summer League 8 – 21st August 2011

With only a few of us fishing today I was going to put us down the canal for a change, I had a walk down there on Thursday night and although weedy, there were at least 7 or 8 fishable swims. Fieldy messaged me on Saturday night to say he’d been down there and there were loads of fish moving and I


Dillington Pond – Evening League 9 – 17th August 2011

For the penultimate match we decided to shorten it by 15 mins due to the failing light. There were five of us again but this week Rob couldn’t make it and Justin would do his usual and turn up late. I drew peg 14 and I had Fieldy for company on the next peg along. I set up the usual whip rig


Summerhayes – Open – 14th August 2011

After my last visit to Longs and a next peg paste battering I was determined to try and get this paste fishing sussed. I ordered some Malmans hand made paste floats and bought some Ringers paste along with some Preston PR478 hooks in size 10 and 12 and Saturday was spent mixing paste, pumping pellets, making rigs up and tying hooks. The


Dillington Pond – Royal Oak Summer League 7 – 7th August 2011

The day didn’t start too well when I overslept but I phoned Robin and said to draw for me and I’d meet him out the pond. After rushing around I arrived out the pond and paid Rob my pools and he said I had peg 7. The pond’s level was back up to normal and although the forecast for the day was


Dillington Pond – Evening League 8 – 3rd August 2011

It had been a beautiful day and looked like being a nice evening too, there were five of us tonight although Justin wouldn’t be joining us (late) this week. I drew peg 17 and was well pleased as I’ve always done well off it. For some reason I was struggling to get ready in time so quickly mixed up some Sensas Lake
