Blueguard Socks Review

Over the years, I’ve had quite a few firms contact me to ask if I’d like to review their products on the blog, obviously they normally tend to be fishing related items like bait or tackle and I strive to give an honest and fair review. I do also review things that I’ve bought that I think people might find interesting like books or

Sadborow – League 6 – 25th June 2017

I was at Sadborow for round six and really looking forward to it as the pond was still fishing well and the lowest weight in the last match was over 60lb! Another great breakfast at Millfield café before we headed to Perry St to do the draw, I paid my pools and collected some maggots and I’d also got the Tart to bring

Perry St Pond – League 5 – 18th June 2017

The high numbers at Perry St were my destination for round five and following another cracking breakfast at Millfield café we headed out the pond to do the draw. The first thing I saw when I got out of the car was Torquay’s geriatric answer to Adam Ant! I wouldn’t say Geoff was a grumpy old bugger but the back of his shirt

Summerhayes – Open – 11th June 2017

Before I get on to this weeks match, we had some awful news in the week when Dave Lawrence passed away after a short battle with that horrible disease cancer that affects so many of our lives. I fished with Dave for a long time, on the Isle, in the Drennan league and in more recent times we used to travel up


Just Starting Out

I was recently contacted by a mate who I haven’t seen for a long time, we used to fish together a lot, firstly as juniors and then we started fishing the club matches with Ilminster AA but as so often happens, other things come along and he drifted away from it. He’s now got a family and his son wants to get into fishing so he

Dillington Pond – Summer League 3 – 4th June 2017

This week I was at Dillington for one of Ilminster AA’s Summer league matches (I miss quite a few this year) and the pond has been fishing really well with Bill Hopping smashing the match record with over 58lb of bream and chub from peg 1 in the first match and John Dursley winning the second match with 25lb of bream and skimmers on the
