Summerhayes – Open – 29th September 2013

I should have realised this weekend wasn’t going to be a good one when my PS3 died last night – RIP PS3, you’ve been a good friend to me! After a poor couple of weeks I was hoping for better things today with the match on Sellicks. On getting to the venue I was a bit disappointed when I found out it


More Exciting Times

I went past 100,000 page views tonight and to say I’m over the moon would be an understatement and I’m so grateful to everybody who reads my blog and follows my highs and lows in the world of match fishing. Against Men and Fish is really going from strength to strength and I now have 437 ‘likes’ on my Facebook page and

Summerhayes – Open -22nd September 2013

Pete had put the draw time back to 9:00 now the nights are drawing in, so the good news is that my blog shouldn’t be too late from now on. Also the forecast was looking good for this match so all I needed to do was catch a few fish! I picked Janders up and on arriving at the fishery, it was

Dillington Pond – Summer League 10 – 15th September 2013

Well that was a weekend to forget, I popped over to Tackleuk yesterday and bought some new elastic and a couple more Drennan Roach floats for today and was quite looking forward to it after the last match. I changed my elastic and made some rigs up and thought I’d check the footy to see how Chelsea were getting on and we


My Favourite Blogs

Now, I love my fishing but I also really, and I mean really, love reading about fishing and one of the best ways of doing this is via the blog-o-sphere. It’s free and there are literally thousands of anglers now blogging about their latest exploits. Every possible type of angling is being written about and by anglers of all abilities, I like

Summerhayes – Open – 8th September 2013

After a long (but enjoyable) day yesterday, I slept like a log and all too soon it was time to get up and go fishing yet again. I picked Janders up and then met some more of the Chard posse at the garage, namely Oz, Butch and Picky who were fishing Summerhayes for the first time today. Although a nice day, the

River Exe – 7th September 2013

I didn’t have anything planned for today and was going to have a lazy day but that all changed when I had a text from fellow blogger, Russell Hilton. He asked if I fancied doing something today and as I hadn’t seen him since our (unsuccessful) pike trip, I jumped at the chance of a day out. He fancied a go at

Dillington Pond – Summer League 9 – 1st September 2013

I arrived at the Royal Oak for the draw today at the same time as Robin who was looking very worse for wear! There were nine of us today including Bruce ‘The Speed Machine’ Hunt and there was also a new face at the draw, a really nice bloke called Guy and it’s always great to get some new anglers fishing. I pulled
