Summerhayes – Open – 28th April 2013

I was looking forward to getting back to Summerhayes today although both Sellicks and Lily lakes were in and I was hoping I didn’t draw Lily. I picked Janders up and on arriving the car park was rather full with a match on Longs as well. All the usual faces were there plus Somerset Angling’s Steve Kedge. With 21 anglers fishing today

Ringers Pellet Pump Review

Now a pellet pump isn’t the most exciting thing to review but I have to admit I was quite looking forward to receiving one of the new Ringers Pellet Pumps. As soon as I saw Tackleuk had some in stock I put my order in and it arrived a couple of days later (top service as ever from Tackleuk). I’ve previously used pumps

Perry St Pond – Spring League 2 – 21st April 2013

Spring looks finally to have arrived and the sun was shining as I loaded the car before making my way out the pond. I collected my bait from Les before he announced the draw for the start of the pairs knockout, I managed to get a bye so for me the knockout will start next match. He then opened an envelope for

Perry St Pond – Spring League 1 – 14th April 2013

For this year’s league, Les had brought in a new payout system where the top four carp weights and the top four silvers weights are paid out each match and there would be two leagues, one for silvers and one for carp and these would be decided on weight. I had thought I would try and fish for silvers but after only catching one


It’s a funny old game – My Top Ten Posts

Match fishing, it’s a funny old game and that’s why I love it so much. You never know what’s going to happen and I think that’s what keeps us going week after week. You can be the best angler in the world but if the fish aren’t in your peg or they’re not feeding, World Champions can blank like the rest of

Summerhayes – Open – 7th April 2013

I was looking forward to getting back on Longs today and hopefully having a nice days skimmer fishing, the forecast wasn’t as good as yesterday but still better than what we’ve been used to of late. I picked Janders up and on arriving at the fishery there were a fair few cars already there and it looked like Pete had a fair few

Goodiford Mill – 6th April 2013

I don’t normally fish Saturdays apart from the odd trip after mullet, pike or barbel etc but when Glyn Wickham phoned me and asked if I wanted to fish the silvers lake at Goodiford Mill I was tempted. He then went on to say it’s stuffed with big roach to 2lb+ and that you would need 40lb+ to win and that was

Summerhayes – Festival Day 2 – 1st April 2013

Going into day two I was feeling quite nervous as I needed to do really well today to stand any chance of a top three finish (although I found out later that Pete was paying the top six overall for silvers and carp!). No sun today and it was overcast and that biting easterly wind was still doing it’s best to chill
