Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 15th June 2024

The last few matches have been won on the waggler and corn so for this one, I made sure I had mine with me (not that I’ve used it for years mind!). I met the others for the usual breakfast pit stop before heading to Todber. Guy announced the draw and per usual I hung back and had one of the last

Revels Fishery – Open – 11th June 2024

There had been some brilliant silvers weights on Woodlanders, Canal and Main last week so I booked a day off work, met PTP for breakfast and then headed to Revels. We arrived early and as the usual reprobates, miscreants and rogues arrived, the banter was in full flow as always. Draw time arrived and I was disappointed to hear the 20 anglers

Coombe Farm – IAA Summer League 5 – 9th June 2024

For the penultimate round of the summer league, we were back at Coombe and it was my turn on pegs 4, 5 or 7. In all four matches so far, peg 5 has been the one to draw, winning the section every time. After a lovely brekkie at the bowling club (thanks Charlotte) it was time for the draw and I had

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 8th June 2024

I’m really enjoying the fishing on Ash although apart from a couple of good results, I’m struggling to get to grips with it. After meeting Nick, PTP and Norts for a Greggs brekkie we headed down to Todber and I have to say I’m looking forward to the new restaurant opening in early August. Draw time arrived and it was a mixed

Summerhayes – Open – 2nd June 2024

Due to various leagues and club matches on Sundays, I haven’t been to Summerhayes for a while so was looking forward to this one although when I phoned Pete to book in, I was a bit disappointed when he said it was on Longs rather than Sellicks which is my favourite lake. Nick, Rob and me met for breakfast at the bowling

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 1st June 2024

Saturday it was back to Todber for the silvers open on Ash and once again I employed the hanging back and having one of the last pegs in the bucket tactic. Nick drew 63 (the peg I didn’t want) so I felt safe to go for it and was well happy with 69 in the middle of the lake which has been

Acorn Fishery – Short Pole Match – 27th May 2024

I fished my first ever short pole match at Acorn last year and really enjoyed it so was looking forward to this one and the 30 spaces filled up in no time. Chris explained the rules (top kit plus two sections) and the payout which would be the top two overall and then three sections and also the top silvers in each

Dillington – IAA Summer League 4 – 26th May 2024

Round four and it was back to Dillington and we were on pegs 1, 2 and 5, all great pegs capable of winning although in the last two rounds peg 5 has won the section and peg 1 has struggled. Of course that was the peg I ended up on with Andy Saunders on 2 and Bish on 5. It was also

Covey Fisheries – Open – 25th May 2024

I haven’t fished Covey since 2021 when we used to fish the Match lake, there are several other waters on-site including Purdy’s which is a specimen/pleasure lake so doesn’t get match fished that often. I’d been seeing some exciting reports from the odd competition with bags of quality roach, rudd, tench, chub and perch up to 45lb although 25-30lb is more the

Revels Fishery – Open – 21st May 2024

A day off work on a Tuesday can only mean one thing, Revels! I made a quick pit stop in Yeovil for brekkie before heading across the border into bandit country. 21 fishing today so a fantastic turnout and we would be spread over Main and Dead Tree lakes. Draw time arrived and I was praying for a nice silvers peg, Duffers
