Dillington Pond – Chris Patten Memorial – 3rd December 2006

Chris was a fantastic angler who died at a young age and Baz Morgan (one of Chris’s best friends) thought a match on the River Isle would be a fitting tribute to a fantastic bloke. Alas the weather let us down and heavy rain and strong winds saw the match switched to Dillington and Perry St ponds. Chris served his apprenticeship on

Dillington Pond – 26th November 2006

After more heavy rain in the night I was hoping the match on the river would be switched to Dillington.

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. When we got to the pond it was a lot lower than usual due to a farmer abstracting for his potatoes! As a consequence we were all sat in thick glutinous
