Dillington Pond – V.E.S. Precision League 6 – 26th January 2014

It had been a lovely day on Saturday but the forecast for today was strong winds and rain, rain and more rain – great! I got to the pub for the draw and Steve let me have my repaired section and what a fantastic job, I’ll have to find out the name of the company and put it on here. All the

Guru Hooklength Storage System

There’s been a lot of hype about the new Guru hooklength storage system so while I was in Tackleuk today I thought I’d pick one up and see what all the fuss was about. I already own one of the MAP hooklength systems and you can read my review of it here MAP Hooklength system review. To be honest it’s a cracking box

Dillington Pond – Royal Oak Winter League 7 – 19th January 2014

After all the rain yesterday I was resigned to being on the pond again but with the Tackleuk muggers not in attendance, at least the rest of us had a chance.

The Yeovil muggers were back again this week and there was also another new face at the draw in the shape of Scott Jackson and it was lovely to see him. Mind you, I think he’d turned up


Poleaid Update

I have to say anglers on the whole are a fantastic bunch and I would just like to say a huge thank you to Mick Greaves and Tony Wynnick for offering to lend me

Dillington Pond – Royal Oak Winter League 6 – 5th January 2014

I was hoping to get 2014 off to a good start and we were out the pond today as the Isle has been flooded for ages. It’s been fishing well and I was quite looking forward to it (I should have known better!), Tackleuk muggers Scott and Ashley were fishing today and with a depleted turnout due to the weather, Rob was
