Dillington Pond – Summer League 9 – 28th August 2016

I got to the pub quite early and it was already really busy, Rob said we had 19 booked in for today which I think is the biggest turnout so far and shows how well the pond is fishing. On the down side, I couldn’t have my usual sausage sandwich as they’d run out of bread! Along with most of the regulars,


Summerhayes – Open – 21st August 2016

It was back to Summerhayes this week but the day didn’t get off to the best of starts when I received a text from the Torquay Tart saying ‘It’s whooping time!’ which put me on a downer as I thought he’d taken up golf or left the country or something! He went on the say that he’s on fire now, a big


Dillington Pond – Summer League 8 – 14th August 2016

We were meeting out the pond today so I got up early for a change and stopped off at Burger King to get a coffee and a sausage and egg muffin thingy which I have to say wasn’t great!

Hebditch’s Pond – 7th August 2016

After the junior match the other week where the winning weight was over 100lb in three hours, everybody was well up for this one and all the talk was of 200lb weights and needing five keepnets.

Against Men and Fish – Hi Andy, firstly, massive congratulations on your richly deserved Fish ‘O’ Mania win and thank you so much for agreeing to do this interview as I know this must be a very hectic time for you! Can


Bait-Tech Apron Towel Review

Now a towel isn’t the most exciting bit of kit I’ve ever reviewed and it certainly won’t catch you any more fish but it is one of those things that you don’t miss until you haven’t got one!From wiping your hands after mixing your Pro Natural groundbait to keeping them dry and slime free before eating your sandwiches, it’s always useful to have a towel in your


Dillington Pond – Summer League 7 – 31st July 2016

After drawing peg 4 in the last two matches, I was hoping for a change of scenery today (although not 24 either as I’ve been on that one twice as well!), I got to the pub fairly early and there was another decent turnout of thirteen anglers. Rob announced the draw and both Ash and me hung back hoping somebody else would pull
