River Isle – 10th March 2019

With no club matches on for the final Sunday of the season a few of us decided to have a little knock up on the lower end of the Isle but once again the forecast was horrible with 50 mph winds predicted. We also had a fair bit of rain in the week and when I went to have a look at

Until the bitter end……

Are you one of those match anglers that sticks it out until the bitter end? Or if you realise you’re not doing any good, do you head off home for an early bath and watch the footy or rugby? I’m definitely the former, of course there have been days where I’ve packed up early but on the whole I stick it out

Dillington Pond – Barney’s Pairs Open – 3rd March 2019

After winning this match last year with Scott Jackson I was looking forward to defending our title but when I messaged him to see if he wanted to fish, he couldn’t make it due to a family commitment so I then contacted my other regular partner, Justin Charles, who couldn’t make it either! I was starting to think I perhaps ought to

River Isle – V.E.S. Precision League 7 – 24th February 2019

With only two points separating the top four, everything was in place for the closest finale to the V.E.S. league in years. 1 – Rob Cox – 12 pts (dropping 6) 2 – Phil Denslow – 13 pts (dropping 6) 3 – Terry Morgan – 13 pts (dropping 20) 4 – Jamie Rich – 14 pts (dropping 5) 5 – Jake Woodard

River Parrett – Ilminster Warehouse League 7 – 17th February 2019

For the final Warehouse League match we decided to head to Midelney and Muchelney again with a section at each. After breakfast we headed to the river and there were no pleasure anglers so we decided to have three on the Isle and four on the Parrett. As far as the league was concerned, I went into this match with a one

The Perfect Match?

I was thinking the other day whether there was such as thing as the perfect match? I suppose before I attempt to answer that, we need to look at what it actually means. You could say that if you achieved what you set out to do, then you’ve fished a perfect match, that could be winning a competition, securing a section win for your

Dillington Pond – Open – 10th February 2019

Heavy rain on Friday and more forecast Saturday night and Sunday morning meant the open would be switched to the pond which we haven’t fished for a while. We had fourteen booked in so no more than a club match really and a far cry from the days when our open was a big event with 80 plus anglers from all over

Jon Arthur Interview

My first interview of the year is with Matrix consultant and angling coach, Jon Arthur, and if I do say so myself, it’s a cracker! Hi Jon, I realise how incredibly busy you are, so thank you so much for agreeing to do an interview; You’re currently a consultant for Matrix but you’ve also been group editor for Match and Pole fishing

River Isle – V.E.S. Precision League 6 – 3rd February 2019

We’re reaching the business end of this league now and I’m still in with an outside chance of a top three finish but would need two good results in the remaining two rounds, starting with today. Also with eighteen anglers booked in, a bad result can mean lots of points dropped and I think there will be some twists and turns before

Fishing In France – Baz Morgan – Part 6

Etang de Korong I absolutely got the wrong impression of this venue the first few times that l went to weigh it up. From the usual point of arrival through the village of Glomel l got the impression of arriving at an aquatic leisure centre and holiday camp.There is a beach of sorts and facilities for all sorts of sports, people everywhere
