Summerhayes – Silverfish Festival Day 2 – 29th July 2012

I was up early again and on my way, everybody at the draw was saying they didn’t want to draw Lily lake as it would be won with a low weight and if anybody ties on points it goes to weight. Glyn Wickham and Brendon kept on that I would be on Lily and I was sincerely hoping that wouldn’t be the


Summerhayes – Silverfish Festival Day 1 – 28th July 2012

I was so looking forward to this mini festival and was actually awake really early, I got to Summerhayes at 10:00 and the draw wasn’t until 11:00!

Summerhayes – Open – 1st July 2012

I was looking forward to getting back to some silver fish action today and there was quite a large contingent of Chard boys fishing including me, Andy, Janders, Exeter Mike and Brendon Ions. Brendon has been putting loads of practice in and was determined to get his pound back from the last Perry St match. I’ve been getting loads of texts from
