Summerhayes – Open – 28th March 2016

The weather overnight was horrendous and it was relief to wake up this morning to see all our fence panels still intact! As I loaded my kit up, I was pleasantly surprised that it was nowhere near as windy as they’d forecast but I was well aware how quickly things can change after yesterday! I got to Bridgwater and as I pulled

Hebditch’s Pond – 27th March 2016

I was due to fish a pairs match at Summerhayes today and tomorrow but with only a few booked in, Pete made the decision to cancel the pairs and just run two individual matches instead so I decided to stay local today and fish at Harrys with a few others and then fish Longs tomorrow. I picked Hurf up on my way

Bait-Tech Sticky Method Pellets Review

At The Big One, along with ‘The Juice’ the other new Bait-Tech product that stood out was the Sticky Method Pellets, Dean Barlow gave us a little demo and yes, they looked fantastic for fishing the method, something I just don’t do but the more I spoke to Dean, the more I began to realise that confining their use to just fishing the

Summerhayes – Open – 23rd March 2016

As I had a week off work, I thought it would be rude not to fish my first mid week match for ages and I was in a really good mood, that was until I received a text from the Torquay Tart informing me he was fishing today, he knows how to ruin someone’s day! I was up in plenty of time

Summerhayes – Open – 20th March 2016

With no Ilminster matches now until May, I booked into the match on Longs today and also phoned Janders who said he’d like to come along as he hasn’t been fishing since last year. Despite it being the first day of Spring, there was still a definite chill in the air as I loaded the car. I picked Janders up and we

The Big One – 19th March 2016

As always I was really looking forward to the Big One as it’s a chance to see what’s new on the tackle and bait scene as well as getting to catch up with some friends I don’t get to see nearly enough. Hurf came along to keep me company once again. First stop was the Gillhams stand and with Stuart and Sean

UV Angler Insect Shield Buff Review

Back in February last year, Kitshack contacted me to ask if I’d review one of their Polar Buffs from the new Anglers Collection, if you didn’t see it at the time, you can find it here – Polar Buff Review I was very impressed with it and at The Big One at Farnborough in March I visited the Buff stand and said I’d love

River Isle – 13th March 2016

With no scheduled match this week we decided to have a little knock up on the river as it would be our last chance before the season ended. We also wanted to have a look at some different swims and five of us met at Coxes before deciding on going to have a look at the Horlicks stretch which I haven’t fished

Thailand – 1st March to 11th March 2016

After a really stressful time of it for the last ten months, I really needed a holiday and of course Thailand would be the destination. It was all a bit last minute but I really wanted to do some fishing and managed to book four days at Exotic Fishing Thailand in Phang Na, a new venue for me. I arrived at Phuket
