Todber Manor – Garbolino Club Angler Of The Year Qualifier – 11th September 2020

I’ve always fancied having a go at this competition and when I saw the Southern qualifier was at Todber this year, I thought why not? Now I’m under no illusions that it’s not a big ask, given that my pb match weight is 155lb and at the moment you need 300lb plus to frame! That sort of fishing just isn’t something I

Todber Manor – Open – 12th August 2020

I’d booked a week off work and really wanted to fish somewhere so when I saw Todber had a match on, I stuck my name down. It’s been fishing it’s head off with huge winning weights and 300lb plus needed to frame, I was hoping I’d be able to have a nice days silvers fishing as I don’t own enough keepnets to

Todber Manor – Open – 30th December 2019

For day two of my fishing triathlon I was back at Todber and hoping for a better day than the 10lb I had in the Xmas match. After another rude awakening from the alarm at 5:30, I loaded the car in the dark before heading to Cartgate for breakfast and then down to deepest, darkest Dorset. Pulling into the car park, there

Todber Manor – 26th May 2019

For my second match with Stoke AA we were on Hill View at Todber Manor, Steve P contacted me in the week and said he wouldn’t mind giving it go so I met him bright and early at Cartgate for breakfast (well I was a bit late so nothing new there!). We made good time and were soon at the fishery, I

Todber Manor – Open – 24th April 2019

After having probably the best day’s silvers fishing I’ve ever had on Friday, I couldn’t wait to get back to Todber for another go, so I booked into the Wednesday open. The weather was back to normal with heavy rain and wind forecast, I met Scotty and Shep at Cartgate for breakfast before making our way to the fishery. As I walked

Todber Manor – Open – 30th June 2018

A rare double-header for me this weekend, kicking off with Todber today, after two brilliant days fishing on my first couple of visits, I’d been itching to getting back to this excellent fishery again. I met Scotty and Ben Simmonds for breakfast at Cartgate before making our way there. As we pulled into the car park, it was pretty packed with another good turn

Todber Manor – Open – 21st April 2018

I couldn’t fish this Sunday as I was going to one of my favourite bands, Propagandhi, in Bristol but I still needed my fishing fix so decided to book in and fish the Saturday open at Todber Manor. I’d really enjoyed it when I fished it last year and I’ll try and fish it a bit more this summer. Steve P was

Todber Manor – Open – 5th August 2017

After a really good week where I saw one of my all time favourite bands, Teenage Bottlerocket, in Bristol, I was looking forward to fishing Todber for the first time but then came down with a stinking cold on Thursday and wasn’t sure I’d feel well enough to go. When the Tart text me to say he was fishing, a day in my sick
