Chard Reservoir – 24th September 2006

This blog could also be titled ‘How the wheel fell off!’ Met for the draw at the resi carpark at 9:15 and managed to draw peg 35 which was next to where I was last time, as this area isn’t well known for bream it was to be a roach day again. Set up a four metre whip with a small waggler

Dillington Pond – 17th September 2006

As usual we met in the Crown Inn, Ilminster for the draw. Upon our arrival Robin told us(me and Andy) that the match was to be held on Dillington and not Curland as we expected. I wasn’t too disappointed as I’d won the last three matches I’d fished on this venue. I drew peg 8 which put me on a bank on

Chard Reservoir – 10th September 2006

Chard reservoir, the main species are roach, bream, perch and carp. Got to the draw in the resi carpark, everybody wanted the favoured bream pegs, 48, 49 or 50 and of course I drew peg 37. Still I’d decided I was going to fish for roach all day because although the bream fishing can be fantastic and 100lb weights arn’t uncommon, it’s

Langport League – Stathe Drain – 3rd September 2006

The final round arrived and due to weed problems the match was to be split between Stathe Drain (3 sections) and the River Parrett (2 sections). I went into the draw and actually managed to pick a couple of end pegs, A1 (and the scales for the team) for Andy and E8, on Stathe, for me. Elsewhere, Alan Dunn was also on

Evesham – 26th-28th August 2006

Just got back from Evesham, another excellent weekend. On the Saturday we watched the fishing for a bit, saw Wayne Swinscoe (the eventual winner) catch some nice net roach, also saw Jeff Spiers land his 5lb+ barbel which landed him 3rd place. Had a fairly quiet night as Andy wasn’t feeling too well and managed to projectile vomit everywhere, although he still

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. We (Chard Remains) really needed a good result to claw back the three point deficit between ourselves and team Focus. As I went in to do the team draw I felt it

River Isle – 13th August 2006

River Isle – the main species are chub, roach, dace, trout and minnows. This was really a non starter, as next weeks Dillington match was cancelled due to people going on holiday etc I had been badgering the organiser, Robin Cox, to hold a match somewhere. The turnout was never going to be huge with maybe half a dozen expected to show.

Langport League – Stathe Drain – 6th August 2006

Stathe Drain – The main species are roach, skimmers, hybrids, perch, bream and tench. I arrived at the Langport Arms for the fourth round of this five a side league. My team, Chard Remains, are currently lying in joint second place quite a way behind the leaders, Team Focus.Doing the team draw I once again managed not to get any end pegs

Langport League – River Parrett – 30th July 2006

Up well early and at the Langport Arms by 8 ‘o’ clock for the draw. As captain I have to draw for the team and once again I didn’t make a particularly good job of it with no end pegs and the weigh boards. My team , Chard Remains, drew team Focus in the knockout, they are a good team with the

Next up

My next match is the third round of the Langport teams of five on the River Parrett on Sunday (30th). My team, Chard Remains, finished 7th (out of eight) on the first match and 3rd on the second match. I think overall we are languishing near the bottom, still it’s the first round of the knockout so maybe we can buck our
