Summerhayes – Open – 12th April 2015

It was back to Summerhayes today for match number five in eight days, the scores on the doors so far weren’t too bad, Ray and me won the two day silvers pairs festival, I missed out on a silvers pick up by 2oz on the Wednesday and then I was second in the silvers yesterday, so what would today bring? Depending on

Summerhayes – Open – 29th September 2013

I should have realised this weekend wasn’t going to be a good one when my PS3 died last night – RIP PS3, you’ve been a good friend to me! After a poor couple of weeks I was hoping for better things today with the match on Sellicks. On getting to the venue I was a bit disappointed when I found out it

Summerhayes – Open – 9th June 2013

I was really looking forward to getting back to Summerhayes although with over 30 anglers booked in the match was to be split over Sellicks and my favourite pond, Lily. Tony Rixon had brought the Bristol bagging contingent down for a day out and there was a good chance we’d all get mugged again! You can check out Tony’s blog here Tony’s


Great Days (and some that didn’t go quite to plan!)

I recently posted my ‘Top Ten Posts Of All Time’ which proved to be popular (and can be read on the link below) and there were several ‘Great Days’ that didn’t quite make the top ten so I’ve listed them below (again in no particular order) 5 – The Lady Of The Stream In all my years of fishing I’d never caught

Summerhayes – Open – 28th April 2013

I was looking forward to getting back to Summerhayes today although both Sellicks and Lily lakes were in and I was hoping I didn’t draw Lily. I picked Janders up and on arriving the car park was rather full with a match on Longs as well. All the usual faces were there plus Somerset Angling’s Steve Kedge. With 21 anglers fishing today

Summerhayes – Xmas Match – 23rd December 2012

With no match scheduled on the river this weekend I booked into the Xmas match at Summerhayes and driving over the river this morning, it was unfishable anyway. I got to the venue with half an hour to spare and sorted out my keepnets before paying my pools and saying hello to all the usual suspects. There was a really good turnout of

Summerhayes – Silverfish Festival Day 2 – 29th July 2012

I was up early again and on my way, everybody at the draw was saying they didn’t want to draw Lily lake as it would be won with a low weight and if anybody ties on points it goes to weight. Glyn Wickham and Brendon kept on that I would be on Lily and I was sincerely hoping that wouldn’t be the

Summerhayes – Open – 20th May 2012

I was on a real high after Chelsea beat Bayern Munich on penalties to win the Champions League final and was hoping for a good days fishing to finish the weekend on a high. The match today was on Lily lake and I’ve only fished it once and managed to win the silvers that day with 7lb 8oz and was hoping for


Summerhayes – Open – 17th April 2011

With no Chard or Ilminster matches I phoned Pete at Summerhayes and he said there was a match on Lily Pond, so I stuck my name down. I haven’t fished this pond before so I asked Scotty about it and he said it could be hard and that his Dad had won a match with 6lb odd of skimmers. Oh well it
