Summerhayes – Open – 27th August 2012

After yesterday where Long’s fished pretty hard, it would be interesting to see how Sellicks fished today. There were only 12 of us today which would probably help as both ponds don’t seem to fish so well with nearly every peg in. Brendon and Glynn were both there and out for revenge after yesterday and we had another silvers winner takes all

Summerhayes – Open – 26th August 2012

I was really looking forward to getting back on Longs as I haven’t fished it for a while, after picking up Janders we arrived quite early and already there were loads of anglers there (in fact 31 had booked in for today!). All the usual faces were there plus quite a few I hadn’t seen before. We paid our pools and had


Dillington Pond – Summer League 8 – 19th August 2012

After some fairly rough weather in the week, the forecast was actually pretty good for the weekend. I got to the Royal Oak relatively early for me and the usual bunch were there apart from Richy who was off playing golf. I pulled out peg 6 on the field side and it was a bit of rush to get set up in

Mission Impossible Update – 16th August 2012

Badge number three arrived today, for my perch caught at Dillington recently I’m still hopeful I can get tench before the weather turns colder, come to think of it I’ve actually had tench, roach, carp, eels, crucians and rudd in recent matches but just haven’t weighed them or had photos taken! When the river fishing starts, I’ll hopefully be able to add

Summerhayes – Open – 12th August 2012

I was really looking forward to getting back to Summerhayes and hopefully a nice days skimmer fishing. But with 29 fishing, Pete had decided to use Sellicks and Lily and I was desperate to avoid Lily as a good weight of silvers on there is 10lb and that won’t normally be enough to compete against Sellicks. I’d picked Janders up and when

Coking Farm – Tackleuk Open – 11th August 2012

I saw Tackleuk were holding an open at Coking Farm and after talking to Scotty about the venue, I booked in. I’d never fished the venue before and Scott said you would need around 25 carp to win and that they average 3-4lb apiece. I was up at 6:30 which is unheard of for me before meeting Scotty in Ilminster and then

Dillington Pond – Summer League 7 – 5th August 2012

The pond has been fishing well in recent matches with 16-17lb weights needed to win and some quality roach featuring but that has been with plenty of colour in the water but that had dropped out today. I must admit I wasn’t really looking forward to fishing the whip all match so decided to fish a 10 metre pole line as well.

Summerhayes – Open – 1st August 2012

As I’ve got the week off, I booked into the match on Sellicks today, Brendon was also fishing and had been texting me loads about how he was going to whoop my ass again (I’m starting to get a bit worried about his fixation with my ass!). The forecast wasn’t great today with fairly strong winds and rain on the cards. There
