Summerhayes – Open – 30th March 2014

The weather was gorgeous again and it was starting to look like Spring had actually sprung! I met Rob at the Little Thief and we headed to Bridgwater, on arriving the car park was rammed as there was a match on Longs as well today. With a good turnout of sixteen for our match, the net bins were almost empty, the other

Summerhayes – Open – 26th March 2014

I haven’t fished a Wednesday match for a fair old while and as I had a few day’s leave to use up I booked in for this one. It was a lovely day too with the sun shining and hardly any wind for the first time in ages. On my arrival, I collected some keepnets before grabbing a coffee and then Pete

Summerhayes – Open – 23rd March 2014

When I spoke to Pete to put mine and Janders names down for this match, he said it would be on Longs today so after picking Janders up, I was a little disappointed on arriving to see all the cars parked by Sellicks! It was also really windy (just for a change!) and there were also some showers forecast – great! As

Canvas Design Review

Through this blog I occasionally get things sent to me to review and I really enjoy doing it as I love getting home to find unexpected parcels waiting for me! I try to write an honest review of any products that come my way or indeed, any gear that I actually buy! I was recently contacted by a lady from Canvas Design asking

Summerhayes – Open – 16th March 2014

I was looking forward to fishing Longs this week as the silvers weights have been steadily improving with over 18lb needed to win it in the last match. Rob Cox also fancied giving it a go for the first time so I met him at the Little Chef in Ilminster and off we went. There was a good turnout with over twenty

More Rambling On

I haven’t ‘rambled’ for a while so I thought I’d just update you on a few things, the blog continues to go from strength to strength and I’m now approaching 143,000 hits which I just find incredible, so thank you so much to everyone that enjoys and reads this drivel. My Facebook page is steadily increasing too and I now have 641

Summerhayes – Open – 9th March 2014

Last night I went to Scotty’s 40th (I know, he’s had a hard life!) at the Square and Compass and it was a really good night with two good bands, lovely food and it was nice to catch up with Scott and Ash, Alex Murray, James Cooper, Martin Addicot and Bean Searle who I haven’t seen for years and the legend that


Dillington Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 2nd March 2014

This is another of my favourite matches that I’ve got a pretty good record in over the years but last year was a bit of a disappointment so I was hoping for better things today. We were planning to have a section on the river today but the weather forecast put paid to that so there was a section on the canal
