Perry St Pond – League 7 – 29th June 2014

After some lovely weather of late, yesterday was just awful with some really heavy rain storms, the forecast was that Sunday would be the better of the two days and on waking up it looked like they had got it right for once. On arriving at the pond it was obvious we were a few short again with Pup and Exeter Mike

The Halfway Point

As I approach the halfway mark of 2014 I thought I’d take a little time to reflect on the year so far and it’s been a cracker and if the next six months are as good I’ll be a very happy man! I wasn’t too impressed with how the year started though with heavy rain keeping us off the river and I

Dillington Pond – Summer League 4 – 22nd June 2014

After going out to watch the juniors last week where most of the fish were caught up in the water I was sure it would be the same today with hot sunny conditions forecast. There were only a few of us fishing today and I just can’t understand it with the pond fishing so well. We decided to put all the pegs

Perry St Pond – League 6 – 15th June 2014

The weather was glorious for this match and it looked like we’d be in for a nice day for a change. I got to the car park for the draw and we were a few anglers short for this match due to people being on holiday and it being Father’s Day among other things and I have to say I do feel

Ilminster AA Junior Match – Dillington Pond – 14th June 2014

I popped out the pond to see how the juniors were getting on today, it was a gorgeous sunny day and as I walked round the pond the surface was black with fish, roach, rudd and some bream could be seen swimming about. There were five youngsters fishing today and once again it was great to see so many adults giving up

Dillington Pond – Summer League 3 – 8th June 2014

After a great days fishing in the first match I was hoping for more of the same today, on arriving at the Oak for the draw it was nice to see Bruce Hunt, Leighton Cox and Tony Newman were fishing today along with the regulars, Moses and Justin were missing today so we’re not far off a decent sized match. Rob had

Perry St Pond – League 5 – 1st June 2014

I missed two matches while I was away in Thailand and I believe Mike Thomas stood in for me while I was away so huge thanks for that Mike T! Before Les did the draw for this weeks peg sequence he announced Janders and Dino had won the pairs knockout last match, well done chaps! The envelope for today was opened and
