River Isle – V.E.S. Precision League 1 – 27th October 2019

After the river was flooded for the first V.E.S. Precision match which would be rescheduled, I was hoping we’d actually be able to get the league started this weekend but with heavy rain forecast on Saturday would Mother Nature scupper us once again? I popped down to have a look and was amazed to see the river spot on with a tinge

Trevor Harrop Interview

My latest interview is a really interesting one with Trevor Harrop from the Avon Roach Project, Hi Trevor, I know you’re an incredibly busy man so thank you so much for agreeing to do an interview; For those readers that aren’t familiar with the Avon Roach Project, could you briefly explain how and why you started it? There was growing concern that

River Isle – Ilminster Warehouse League 2 – 20th October 2019

For round two we were fishing a different stretch of the Isle at Midelney, it always looks nice and people had been reporting lots of fish topping when they’d walked it. Earlier in the week it was doubtful we’d get anywhere near the river once again after more heavy rain, but as the week went on, the forecast began to look more

Dillington Pond – 13th October 2019

We were due to start another V.E.S. Precision league (where does the time go!) and I was looking forward to getting back on the river but heavy rain put paid to that so we were back on Dillington for a days fishing. After really enjoying the last four matches on the pond, I was looking forward to it as I thought it

Luccombes Fishery – 11th October 2019

I don’t pleasure fish very often these days so when I arranged to meet up with a mate I hadn’t seen for a while we decided on combining it with a spot of fishing. He suggested we go to Luccombes Fishery as they’ve got several lakes along with good facilities on site including a cafe and a tackle shop. I met him

Private Pond – Ilminster Warehouse League 1 – 6th October 2019

For the first Ilminster Warehouse match we had the opportunity to fish a private syndicate lake that I’ve heard a lot about over the years but never even seen, let alone fished, so I was really looking forward to it. I popped out on Saturday with Gordon and Karl to see what it was like and it looked lovely, albeit a bit

Spotlight On….. Bait-Tech Special G Green and The Juice Groundbaits

For my commercial silvers fishing I always used to feed micros that I’d soaked and added some flavouring to along with a dusting of groundbait and I’ve had a lot of success doing that but in recent years, especially at Summerhayes where I fish a fair bit, there seems to have been a move towards groundbait. I started playing around with different

Summerhayes – Champion of Champions Silvers Final – 29th September 2019

I think these ‘All Winners’ style matches are a great idea, they create a real buzz with lots of people trying to qualify and there’s usually a decent prize pot. This is the third year I’ve qualified and it’s a match I’d love to win, although so far, fifth is the best I’ve managed. The forecast for Saturday night and Sunday was
