Perry St Pond – League 10 – 27th July 2014

Yesterday had been really hot and I’d managed to burn my face and neck while walking round the Thai festival in Bristol so would need to be more careful today, although it did look like it was going to be a bit more overcast which would be better fishing conditions. Everyone knew which pegs they were on today and I had peg

Water-to-Go Bottle Review

As I’ve said before on the blog, one of the unexpected perks of writing my weekly posts is that occasionally I get contacted and asked if I’d like to review a company’s products and as long as the item in question is related to fishing or the outdoors, I’m more than happy to.

We nearly had a full house again with only one absentee today. I had to pick the envelope for the draw sequence and when Les opened

Chard AC Junior Match – Perry St Pond – 5th July 2014

Last Sunday, Rocking Roy reminded me that there was a junior match out the pond today so I popped out to see how they were getting on. There were five youngsters fishing today and they were on pegs 12 to 16, I walked the long way round and came to Sam Hughes on peg 12 first, Sam was fishing the feeder and

Bonus Interview!

I haven’t done an interview for a while and hopefully I have another big name in the angling world lined up but until then, here’s a little ‘tongue in cheek’ interview to tide you over (and you may even find some bits interesting!). Hi Jamie, thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions, I’ve known you for a
