Acorn Fishery – Open – 24th February 2024

On Saturday we headed to Acorn for our first visit of the year, there had been some good silvers weights in the week but waking up to a hard frost wouldn’t do us any favours. 26 anglers booked in for today and I was hoping for a nice silvers peg, Des held the bucket aloft and I pulled out 15 which wasn’t

Summerhayes – Open – 18th February 2024

The following day we were back at Summerhayes with the match on Longs again and another great turnout of 24 (including Karl Aplin who I haven’t seen for ages). I was third on the list this week and delved into the bucket hoping to pull out pegs 12, 13 or 19 and came close with number 11 which I was fairly happy

Ivy House – Fish South Silvers Qualifier – 17th February 2024

Saturday was another Fish South Silvers Qualifier at Ivy House, I’d really enjoyed my first visit (although drawing a bunghole always helps!) and along with Nick, Norts had also bought a ticket for this one. After the alarm went off at a rather unsociable 4:30am, I met the others an hour later and we arrived at the fishery nice and early. We

Summerhayes – Open – 11th February 2024

After Toby ‘The Pellet Pro’ Burrell’s dominance at Summerhayes over the last few weeks, there would be some micros and expanders on my side tray today (and a few others as well, I’m sure!). Parker ‘The Pole’, Nick and me met for another of Charlotte’s lovely breakfasts before heading to Bridgwater. 26 anglers booked in for this one I have to say

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 10th February 2024

I haven’t fished Todber for a while so when I saw on Facebook they were turning Ash into a silvers lake and had taken a lot of the carp out, I thought it could be really interesting. Early match results looked good, 20lb+ needed to frame with lots of small fish, some decent skimmers plus odd tench and perch making up the

Summerhayes – Open – 4th February 2024

After yesterday, I was hoping for better things on Longs today but first a cracking breakfast at the bowling club set us up for the day ahead. A decent turnout as always with 21 fishing today and after a coffee it was time for the draw, I was top of the list so first in the bucket and hoping to pull out

Summerhayes – Silvers Open – 3rd February 2024

I was looking forward to the weekend and two days at Summerhayes, starting with a silvers match on Saturday. Twelve fishing today which is a good number on Sellicks as it means basically every other peg in. Pete announced the draw and I really fancied number 16 (my favourite peg) or any of the middle pegs on the far side. When it

Summerhayes – Open – 28th January 2024

On Sunday it was back to Summerhayes with the match on Longs this week. Although it had been a few degrees warmer overnight, I still thought it might be quite tricky today with around 8lb a good silvers weight. Another decent turnout of 18 anglers and the bonus ball was peg 11 today, when it was my turn, I pulled out 32
