Summerhayes – Open – 19th September 2022

With a Bank Holiday on the Monday, there was a silvers only match on Longs, I booked in and Nick and Jenny said they fancied it as well and very kindly did some bacon and egg rolls for breakfast. They wouldn’t accept any payment so we all bunged a fiver in the charity pot. With 12 anglers fishing, we had plenty of

Summerhayes – Clive and Ray’s Memorial Match – 6th August 2022

I fished Clive Cunningham’s memorial match in 2021 and after sadly losing Ray Wickham, they decided to have a combined memorial match for this year. It started filling up quickly and in no time, there were 28 names down, a fantastic turn out and I was really looking forward to it, especially as it was silvers only. The Breakfast Club assembled at

For the Friday match we were back at Summerhayes and it was on Longs again with 17 booked in to fish today. With everybody arrived and pools paid, it was time for the draw, Pete delved in the bucket to pull out the golden ball and emerged with……. a little plastic dinosaur! Jess (Zooner) had just come back from holiday and brought

The start of the long weekend saw me booked into Summerhayes, we met up in Taunton for breakfast and the usual crew were joined by Picky and The Tart. Today’s match was supposed to be on Sellicks which I was really looking forward to, but due to numbers, Pete moved us onto Longs. Pete announced the draw and the golden peg was

The Breakfast Club assembled in Taunton (and very nice it was too) before heading to Bridgwater. On arrival it was great to see Picky, Bushy and Derek from Chard who have just started
