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

Ilminster Canal – Crown League – 18th March 2007

The final match arrived and after a cracking week’s weather we were confronted by strong gusty winds and the possibility of rain, hail and even snow! Only seven anglers were at the draw and as per usual the match was to be split into two sections, I drew peg 3 which was in the section of four anglers which included Martin Heard

Dillington Pond – 15th March 2007

A friend at work, Andrea Simpson, asked if I would take her fishing and as I had the week off and the weather forecast looked ok, I agreed. I met her in Ilminster and after bacon sarnies we went out Dillington, the pond looked nice and I set up a waggler and the pole. I couldn’t catch on the waggler but a

River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 11th March 2007

The last match in this league and, wonders will never cease, we were actually able to get on the river. This match was also the last chance we would have of fishing the Isle until October. Twelve of us lined up to await our fate for the next five and a half hours, including Janders who agreed to a side bet as

Dillington Pond – Crown League – 4th March 2007

After yet more torrential rain (when will it ever end?) the match was again switched to the pond. With non stop rain and heavy winds forecast there were only seven hardy souls willing to brave the elements, make that six as Neil Dring didn’t fancy the pond and decided a day in to watch his beloved Spurs take on West Ham was

Dillington Pond – Hollowlegs League – 25th February 2007

After yet more rain, the match was switched to Dillington again which I wasn’t too upset about as I have been doing well there. I drew peg 9 which was by the pumphouse, which is where I was on the last match here. The first suprise on reaching the pond was that pegs one to three were taken up by pleasure anglers,

River Isle – Crown League – 18th February

For weeks I have been taking my reels in the hope I draw peg 125 at Isle Brewers, one of the few pegs where the waggler is number one choice. While waiting for the draw I could see peg 125 was in but there were also a couple of pegs I really didn’t want, 82 and 39. I stuck my hand in

Dillington Pond – 11th February 2007

This match was due to be the annual ‘Open’ on the Isle but due to loads of rain the river was unfishable and the fixture was swopped to Dillington Pond. With only ten of us fishing it was more of a knockabout really, but still there was money to be won. For a change I actually drew away from the tree pegs

River Isle – Crown League – 4th February 2007

After last weeks lesson in not catching anything I was desperate to put it behind me and hopefully continue my good form in this league, especially as going into this match I was top. We were also fishing two stretches of the Isle that we haven’t fished for ages, the Donyatt and Horlicks sections. The Horlicks section is actually controlled by Chard
