Summerhayes – 14th April 2019

With Longs and Sellicks both fishing well for silvers with around 20lb needed to win, I was looking forward to my first visit of the year so phoned Pete to book in, only for him to say there were club matches on both ponds and Sunday’s open would be on Willow! I messaged Jeff in the week to find out if he

The Future’s Bright, The Future’s Orange

I’ve never been much of a tackle tart (those that have seen my gear, can testify to this!) if I’m happy with something I see no need to change it and in the case of bigger items like seat boxes and poles, I can’t afford to buy the latest model every year. So if I find a particular range of floats that

Perry St Pond – Spring League 1 – 7th April 2019

For this year’s league, there would be three sections, two at Perry St and one at Sadborow, for the first match there would be an open draw and you would be in the same section of seven anglers for three matches and then there would be another open draw, which I think is a really fair way of doing it. We met

Sadborow – 31st March 2019

With the Spring League starting next week and a section at Sadborow once again, Les somehow roped me into some swim clearing (yes you read that right!) with the promise of a little knock up afterwards. We met for breakfast before heading out the pond and spending an hour or so trimming vegetation and generally tidying the swims up including giving the

Reel Elite Clothing Review

My waterproofs were starting to look a bit tatty after a good few years of faithful service (although a bit like Trigger’s broom, the jacket is the same but I’m on about my third bib n brace) so when Bait-Tech announced a clothing range would soon be available from Reel Elite Apparel, I decided to have a look. It wasn’t cheap but

Perry St Pond – 24th March 2019

With the Spring League starting in two weeks, this match was a bit of a practice for those fishing the league and after a really good day at the Big One yesterday, I woke up, the sun was shining and I was really looking forward to this match and before that, another lovely Millfield cafe breakfast. I made a flask and went

The Big One – 23rd March 2019

The Big One is always a great day out, a chance to see some of the latest gear, mingle with the stars and also grab yourself a bargain. Leading up to the show, I was a little disappointed when I saw the list of exhibitors and the two I always make a beeline for, Bait-Tech and Gillhams, weren’t on it. I’d also

Sadborow – 17th March 2019

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do this weekend so when I had the chance to fish a little match at Sadborow, I jumped at the chance as you’re normally guaranteed a nice days fishing. We met at ‘Spoons for breakfast before heading out to the pond. With eight of us fishing, Hoff had to leave a peg out but

Fishing Calendar App Review

*Sponsored Post* Over the years I’ve reviewed several fishing apps, a couple of which are still going strong but several have fallen by the wayside so when I was contacted recently asking if I’d review another one, I was intrigued to see if it would offer anything different. It’s called Fishing Calendar and according to the info I received it ‘is a

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
