Revels Fishery – 23rd March 2023

Only one outing this weekend, a Stoke match at Revels, quite a few of us met at the Airfield Tavern for breakfast and as per usual, the food was nice and the banter was top notch, the best way to start Sundays. Arriving at the fishery, the car park was already nearly full with twenty two booked in for this one, a

Summerhayes – Open – 16th April 2023

A really long day yesterday, up at 5:45am to fish at Acorn, got home at 6:30pm, packed kit away, straight in the shower then to Stoke Sub Hamdon for the angling clubs presentation night at 7:30pm. It was a brilliant night with lots of laughs and a fantastic buffet was laid on, I actually went back up and filled my plate several

Acorn Fishery – Open – 15th April 2023

I wasn’t going to fish anywhere on Saturday and was actually looking forward to having a lie in but that all changed when Zoe messaged and said they had half the lake available for an open and I couldn’t resist! So once again, Saturday morning had a familiar feel to it, after meeting Nick, we headed to Clevedon, had a nice breakfast

Summerhayes – Open – 10th April 2023

Bank Holiday Monday and match number four as my fishing (and blogging) marathon approaches it’s climax. We were on Sellicks today which I was really looking forward to as it’s been fishing well, in the silvers only match on Saturday, Zooner had the top weight with a brilliant 22lb and there were back up weights of 20lb and 18lb. The forecast was

Summerhayes – Open – 9th April 2023

Up early again, I was feeling surprisingly fresh for my third match in as many days and met the others for one of Charlotte’s lovely breakfasts at the bowling club. As we pulled into the fishery car park, it was rammed! There were 31 booked in for our match, plus a club fixture on Sellicks. Along with all the usual suspects, there

Acorn Fishery – Open – 8th April 2023

For match day two, Nick and me headed back up to Acorn, another early start was required and we stopped off at the burger place for breakfast which was very nice. It was shaping up to be a gorgeous day and there were plenty of fish moving about as we waited for the draw. I delved into the bag and only went

Summerhayes – Open – 7th April 2023

I always try and fish a few matches over Easter but this year I’m attempting something I’m not sure I’ve ever done before and booked in for a match on all four days. Now knowing how knackered I am when I do two in a weekend, would this be a match (or two) too far! My fishing quadrilogy kicked off at Summerhayes

Landsend – 2nd April 2023

Stoke AA’s lake series kicked off at Landsend on Sunday and with 22 anglers fishing, we were on lakes 1 and 3. Apparently lake 1 was the place to draw for silvers with lake 3 expected to be quite hard. After a lovely breakfast at the fishery, it was draw time and there was the usual scrum of people grabbing tickets from

Acorn Fishery – Open – 1st April 2023

A 10:45 draw time for this one which would mean a nice leisurely start but also not getting home until late. I still woke up at the normal time and actually got to the garage 15 minutes before I was due to meet Nick! We stopped at the burger van for a very nice bacon, sausage and egg roll before heading to
