Reel Elite Clothing Review

My waterproofs were starting to look a bit tatty after a good few years of faithful service (although a bit like Trigger’s broom, the jacket is the same but I’m on about my third bib n brace) so when Bait-Tech announced a clothing range would soon be available from Reel Elite Apparel, I decided to have a look. It wasn’t cheap but

Perry St Pond – 24th March 2019

With the Spring League starting in two weeks, this match was a bit of a practice for those fishing the league and after a really good day at the Big One yesterday, I woke up, the sun was shining and I was really looking forward to this match and before that, another lovely Millfield cafe breakfast. I made a flask and went

The Big One – 23rd March 2019

The Big One is always a great day out, a chance to see some of the latest gear, mingle with the stars and also grab yourself a bargain. Leading up to the show, I was a little disappointed when I saw the list of exhibitors and the two I always make a beeline for, Bait-Tech and Gillhams, weren’t on it. I’d also

Sadborow – 17th March 2019

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do this weekend so when I had the chance to fish a little match at Sadborow, I jumped at the chance as you’re normally guaranteed a nice days fishing. We met at ‘Spoons for breakfast before heading out to the pond. With eight of us fishing, Hoff had to leave a peg out but

*Sponsored Post* Over the years I’ve reviewed several fishing apps, a couple of which are still going strong but several have fallen by the wayside so when I was contacted recently asking if I’d review another one, I was intrigued to see if it would offer anything different. It’s called Fishing Calendar and according to the info I received it ‘is a

River Isle – 10th March 2019

With no club matches on for the final Sunday of the season a few of us decided to have a little knock up on the lower end of the Isle but once again the forecast was horrible with 50 mph winds predicted. We also had a fair bit of rain in the week and when I went to have a look at

Until the bitter end……

Are you one of those match anglers that sticks it out until the bitter end? Or if you realise you’re not doing any good, do you head off home for an early bath and watch the footy or rugby? I’m definitely the former, of course there have been days where I’ve packed up early but on the whole I stick it out

Dillington Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 3rd March 2019

After winning this match last year with Scott Jackson I was looking forward to defending our title but when I messaged him to see if he wanted to fish, he couldn’t make it due to a family commitment so I then contacted my other regular partner, Justin Charles, who couldn’t make it either! I was starting to think I perhaps ought to
