Hebditch’s Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 28th February 2016

Over the years we’ve used several venues in a variety of combinations for Barney’s Pairs Match and this year we were using a new one, Hebditchs’s pond for one section along with Dillington for the other. I was a little disappointed we weren’t using the river as Barney used to love the Isle but both venues have been fishing well and everybody should get plenty

River Isle – V.E.S. Precision League 7 – 21st February 2016

The final V.E.S. Precision match arrived and as the rain had held off we were actually able to get back on the river. On the league front, Fieldy was uncatchable but it was all very tight for the second and third places with Heardy and me on 12 points and Bruce on 13. I got to the pub and it was nice

Dillington Pond – Open – 7th February 2016

With high winds, torrential rain and floods everywhere yesterday we were always going to be on the pond today and I don’t mind because you’re nearly always guaranteed plenty of bites. I got to the Oak and given the forecast was pretty awful for today with high winds and more rain coming in later, there were still ten hardy (or stupid) souls

Dillington Pond – Royal Oak Winter League 7 – 31st January 2016

I was really hoping we’d be back on the river this week but as soon as I arrived at the draw and saw Scotty’s van, I knew we’d be on the pond as he won’t fish the river! After breakfast we all drove out the pond to do the draw so Rob could see which pegs were available, there were no other anglers
