Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 18th May 2024

Saturday it was back to Todber for another silvers open on Ash, I met Nick and Duffers for breakfast before we headed to the venue. After getting some bait, it was time for the draw and I thought I’d try being at the end of the queue again as it seems to have worked well recently. With just two tickets left, I

Revels Fishery – Open – 14th May 2024

With the weather finally beginning to warm up, I booked a couple of Tuesdays off work so I could go and fish the midweek matches at Revels. Typically after a gorgeous weekend, it was going to be a windy one today. After a Greggs brekkie, I got to the venue early and the carpark soon started filling up with the usual suspects.

Coombe Farm – IAA Summer League 3 – 12th May 2024

Round three of the summer league and we were back at Coombe and I would be on pegs 1, 2 or 3. At the moment you need to catch big carp to do well and these seem to be mainly showing on the end pegs 1, 5 and 10. I’d even packed my feeder rod and bought some new 8lb line and

Acorn Fishery – Open – 11th May 2024

After drawing peg 27 and really struggling in my last outing, for Foxy’s next open I decided to employ the tactic of having the last peg in the bag again. There were actually two balls left (as Chris hadn’t drawn yet) and I pulled out number 9 which is one of the best carp pegs on the lake but can also be

Acorn Fishery – Open – 6th May 2024

Bank Holiday Monday and a trip up to Acorn for their open which was well attended with 26 anglers fishing. Des was in charge of proceedings and asked Zoe to draw for him, she pulled out a good one in the shape of peg 10, then there was the usual scrum as everybody delved into the bag. Nick got number 4 on

Summerhayes – 5th May 2024

Note – I’m not sure what’s going on with Facebook but they removed my last post linking to the blog so if you commented and I didn’t get chance to reply, I apologise. I have queried it with FB but I’m not holding my breath it will be resolved anytime soon! Sunday we were at Summerhayes for a Stoke club match on

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 4th May 2024

Another long weekend due to a Bank Holiday (is it really May already!) and I was fishing all three days starting with another trip to Todber. After breakfast we arrived at the fishery and it was nice to see Steve P who had booked in last minute. Guy announced the draw and I decided to wait and have the last ticket in

Dillington – IAA Summer League 2 – 28th April 2024

For round 2, we all knew which lake we’d be on and which section of three pegs we’d be in and with whom. It was pegs 16, 17 or 18 at Dillington for me and although it had been the hardest of the three mini sections in the first round, I really fancied 18 after having a lovely day on the feeder

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 27th April 2024

After drawing peg 63 in the last two matches and not doing very well, I was hoping for a change of scenery this week. I decided I was going to have the last peg in the bucket and hope 63 had gone by then! It was still quite chilly and spring is definitely taking its time to arrive, after picking up some

Summerhayes – Open – 21st April 2024

The following day we headed to Summerhayes for the open on Longs, 23 anglers fishing today and incredibly I managed to draw peg 13 for the second match on the trot. Its a peg I’ve been on a lot recently, brilliant for silvers and after all the time I’ve spent sat on it, you’d think I’d know how to fish it by
