Dillington Pond – Summer League 7 – 30th July 2017

I was back at Dillington for this weekends match and I have to admit that after getting it wrong in the two matches I’ve fished so far, I didn’t know what I was going to do today. Another cracking Ilminster Bowling Club breakfast set me up for the day and great value at a fiver. Rob announced the draw and after delving

Paul Jessop Interview

Dillington Pond – Summer League 5 – 2nd July 2017

Before I get on to this weeks match I have to just mention I popped out the pond on Saturday to see a mate, Jon Newby, and his son Ethan who has been nagging his dad to take him fishing. Also a massive thanks to Scott Jackson who sorted him out with loads of kit. Ethan is really keen and was catching
