Trinity Waters – Open – 23rd January 2022

We were back at Trinity for another open this week but after frosts all week, it could be a struggle again but at least we got the day off to a good start with breakfast at the bowling club. On arriving at Trinity, the car park was pretty busy with 21 booked in for today. I was hoping for a nice central

Trinity Waters – Silvers Open – 16th January 2022

With no Ilminster or Stoke matches on this week, I booked into the silvers open at Trinity. It had fished hard the previous week with just 6lb winning the silvers and with three consecutive frosts leading up to the weekend, I could see it being difficult again although it was a few degrees warmer so at least we wouldn’t have to break

Thorney Lakes – 9th January 2022

Stoke were going to have a winter league last year using some different stretches but Covid put paid to that. This time around, Russell Hilton was organising the five match series with the first round on the River Yeo at Long Load. Pleasure anglers had been reporting good catches of roach, chublets and odd bream so we could be in for a

Revels Fishery – Open – 3rd January 2022

As it was a Bank Holiday, I booked into the open at Revels. After the usual breakfast stop in Yeovil, I headed to the fishery. The car park was already pretty full as there was a great turnout of 20 anglers fishing this one. Three lakes were being used for todays match, Main, Canal and Woodlanders. The draw got underway and John

River Isle – IAA Winter League 5 – 2nd January 2022

A New Year and hopefully a new drawing arm for the river! My day didn’t get off to the best of starts when I turned the alarm off twice and woke up an hour late. After rushing about like a headless chicken, I got to the bowling club and still just about had enough time to eat my breakfast before the draw.

2021 Yearly Review

January/February 2021 Another lockdown meant no match fishing yet again and 2021 carried on where 2020 left off! Highlights – None Lowlights – Covid 19 March 2021 I popped out to Dillington with Steve P for a pleasure session hoping to catch some skimmers on the feeder, a 3lb chub after twenty minutes gave me hope we might get a few but
