Perry St Pond – Spring League – 27th May 2007

Match day five arrived and so did the rain! This time however I was prepared and brought a brolly. I didn’t draw very well, peg 16, a swim I did 9lb off a couple of matches back. The swim has a bed of lilies on the inside to the right, although I never caught anything from it last time. I set up

Dillington Pond – 20th May 2007

Bit of a disaster this week, Robin Cox, the summer league organiser had sent me the dates and the first match was supposed to be today. I knew he was holiday in Turkey but was getting back on Saturday so I assumed the match was still on. Anyway Janders and myself arrived at the Crown just before nine for the draw and

Perry Street Pond – Spring League – 13th May 2007

Spring League matchday four arrived and I really needed a good result to keep me in with a chance of a final league placing. I was stood waiting for the draw with Janders and asked which peg he fancied and he replied peg one which has to be the most consistent peg on the pond. Les came round with the draw bucket

Sadborow Pond – 6th May 2007

My mate Andy phoned to ask if I’d fish in his place in the Sadborow league as he’s had a rough time of it lately, as I didn’t have anything on I jumped at the chance. Sadborow is mainly a carp water although there are some roach and skimmers but to do well you need carp. The pond hasn’t been fishing well

Perry St Pond – Spring League – 29th April 2007

After no match last week I should have been raring to go for this one but with the pond not fishing as well as hoped I wasn’t. I decided not to play my joker again and at the draw everyone was once again hoping for peg 1. My mate Andy was fishing even though he’d just spent three days in hospital, originally

Dillington Pond – 22nd April 2007

No match this weekend and as I couldn’t face hanging round the house I decided to pop out Dillington for a few hours. On my arrival I was suprised to see several other anglers who turned out to be Jack and Tony Newman and Digger, after a brief chat I took my kit to the other side of the pond. I set

Perry St Pond – Spring League – 15th April 2007

After my not very good start to the spring league in the last match I was hoping for better things this time around. At the draw I did think about playing my joker where you get double points but decided against it. Several anglers did including my mate Andy, Janders and Mark Hollister. The draw was announced and none of the anglers

Perry St Pond – 6th April 2007

We always used to fish the Stillwater Cup on Good Friday, we no longer fish for the trophy but still have the match. The draw wasn’t until 11 ‘o’ clock and I was at the pond well early, as everybody turned up there was the usual banter before the draw took place. I drew peg 13 which always used to be a

Perry St Pond – Spring League – 1st April 2007

After a recent stocking of small carp the pond has been fishing really well with winning weights up to 60lb and 30lb+ needed to frame. Although carp arn’t really my thing I was quite looking forward to this one. At the draw I saw lots of faces I hadn’t seen for a while, Tommy Lee, Graham ‘Dino’ Pepper, Rockin’ Roy and Butch

Landsend Fisheries – 25th March 2007

This match was the first time I had visited Landsend and with tales of big bags of silverfish I was quite looking forward to it. After losing an hours sleep due to the clocks going forward I was on my way. I found the fishery fairly easily and there were some faces at the draw I hadn’t seen for a while, Big
