Dillington Pond – 25th November 2012

After rain of biblical proportions for most of the week, this weeks match was never going to be on the river, in fact with widespread flooding I wasn’t sure there would be a match at all! On waking up the weather didn’t look too bad outside and the drive to Ilminster was okay although there was a lot of water about. I

With the weather turning colder he thought we might stand a chance of a barbel or two but didn’t think we’d be catching as many as
