Langport League – Stathe Drain – 20th August 2006

Stathe Drain – The main species are roach, skimmers, hybrids, perch, bream and tench. Round five of the Langport league arrived and I must admit I was a little nervous.

Dillington Pond – 23rd July 2006

Dillington Pond – The main species are roach, rudd, perch and chub. Other secies present are bream, tench, crucian carp and eels. Met at the Crown per usual, drew peg 2.

Against men and fish

Everyone else seems to be doing so I thought I’d give it a go. My blog will just be short accounts of the fishing matches I enter and how I do in them. Hopefully as the blog progresses there will be some funny stories and tales of triumph and defeat and days that are just a complete disaster.My first entry will be
