Dillington Pond – Summer League 9 – 30th August 2015

The three matches I’ve fished in this league so far have been a real mixed bag and swapping and changing methods hasn’t helped. The feeder has been winning most of the matches but I’ve tried it a couple of times without much success, so today I was determined to just fish the pole. I got to the pub for the draw and

Summerhayes – Open – 23rd August 2015

This match was supposed to be on Sellicks but after losing some skimmers a few weeks back it hasn’t been fishing very well for silvers so I was relieved when I got there and Pete said he’d moved us onto Longs today.

Dillington Pond – Summer League 7 – 2nd August 2015

I was quite looking forward to getting back out the pond again as it’s still fishing it’s head off with 30lb plus need to win and you need over 20lb to frame. I got it badly wrong in the last match I fished when I had just shy of 14lb of roach on the pole and got battered by people catching plenty
