Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 16th June 2024

Round two of Ruthie’s Cup and we were at Hebditch’s Pond, we all met at The Ranch for breakfast and were well looked after by Kirsty before it was time for the draw. It was pegs 12, 1, 2 and 3 for us this week with everyone hoping to draw 3 which along with 4 in the next section have been the

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 7th June 2023

For the penultimate round (the last one for me as I can’t make the final match on 21st June, stand ins are allowed so if anyone would like to fish, please get in touch) of Ruthie’s Cup, we had six fishing (well five and half as Norts was going to be a bit late). The Fabulous Five met for breakfast and with

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 24th May 2023

For round two of Ruthie’s Cup, we had a severely depleted turnout due to people having other commitments but the decision was made to go ahead as people had booked days off work and also a lack of other suitable dates. We met at the bowling club and had a lovely breakfast (thanks Drew). After a random open draw for the first

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 10th May 2023

For match day five, it was the first round of Ruthie’s Cup at Hebditch’s Pond. Fished for the first time last year, Ruthie’s Cup is a series of matches in memory of The Grand Wiz’s daughter who was cruelly taken far too early by cancer. With a trophy very kindly donated by Steve Chant, it was keenly contested with Chris Norton crowned

Hebditch’s Pond – 5th March 2023

Only one match for me this weekend as Parker ‘The Pole’ joined me on Saturday and we headed to The Big One in Farnborough for the first time in a few years. We met up with Norts there and it was a brilliant day, although some of the big players on the match scene were absent (Preston, Daiwa, Maver, Drennan and Matrix),

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 16th November 2022

It was the third and final match for Ruthie’s Cup on Wednesday and I could get used to this fishing three times a week! We all met at Cartgate for breakfast which was good although there was some confusion with several of the orders! Then it was time for the draw and it was my turn in the middle section. Pegs 5

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 12th October 2022

With several cancellations due to the extremely hot weather and low water levels, we were finally able to hold the second match of Ruthie’s Cup, over three months on! As it’s now getting darker earlier we had to bring the draw and finish times forward a bit as well. We all met at Cartgate for breakfast, the first time I’ve been for

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 6th July 2022

Stoke AA raise a lot of money for the Oncology Unit at Yeovil Hospital (I think it was a fantastic £2000 last year) and it’s a cause close to so many peoples hearts as there aren’t many that haven’t been touched in some way by cancer. Chris White very recently lost his daughter, Ruthie, to that vile disease so he and Harry

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 19th June 2022

After a lovely evening on the Parrett, I was hoping for more of the same in the charity match the following day on Hebditch’s Pond. After not that much sleep, The Breakfast Club assembled at The Airfield Tavern in Yeovil, the food was good and the banter even better as The Grand Wiz recounted (several times), the tale of the lost river

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 1st May 2022

Another Bank Holiday weekend means lots more fishing, first up was another charity event at Hebditch’s followed by Summerhayes on the Monday and then I’d also booked Tuesday off to go to Revels. Most of us met at the bowling club for the obligatory breakfast (and very nice it was too) before we headed to the memorial hall in Stoke-sub-Hamdon for the
