After last weeks disaster I was hoping for better things today at Summerhayes, it was on Long’s Match Lake again and the forecast was for a hot, sunny day. I picked Janders up and on arrival we could see there was a really good turnout (26 anglers in total). There were the usual venue experts in the form of Bruce Hunt, Adie

I picked him up at 8:00 and off we went, there was a decent turnout of 19 anglers including Martin Heard, Bruce Hunt and Adie Bishop. I had no idea what a good draw

After picking Janders up it was off to Summerhayes, the match was on Long’s again and I wasn’t confident of breaking the jinx. There was a good turnout of twenty anglers and after a coffee it was soon time to draw, I was near the end of the queue and pulled out peg 4 which put me on the far side yet

After my last visit to Longs and a next peg paste battering I was determined to try and get this paste fishing sussed. I ordered some Malmans hand made paste floats and bought some Ringers paste along with some Preston PR478 hooks in size 10 and 12 and Saturday was spent mixing paste, pumping pellets, making rigs up and tying hooks.

I picked Janders up and off we went, there was a good turnout of 18, I pulled out peg 13 which is where Pete gave me a battering a few weeks back so it’s a fairly good area. Would today be the day I finally ended my Longs jinx? I set up the usual Carpa 2 for my main skimmer line at

Summerhayes – Open – 25th April 2011

After a few bevvies last night, my head was a little woolly for this one, after a couple cups of coffee I was on my way to Summerhayes for the draw at 11. I got there and paid my pools and said hello to Scott and Roger and then saw Bob Gullick who I haven’t seen for a good ten years and

Summerhayes – Open – 15th August 2010

With nothing else on, I booked into the open at Summerhayes, I had to pick Scotty up in the morning as he had a heavy night! The match today was on Longs pond and there are more silvers than Sellicks so I was looking forward to a good day. There were around 20 anglers booked in and I managed to pull out

Summerhayes – Open – 20th June 2010

With nothing local on, I put my name down for an open at Summerhayes near Bridgwater. An 11 ‘o’ clock draw was very civilised and I was one of the first there, Pete has a nice set up and after paying pools and having a free coffee, I had a bacon sarnie to set me up for the day. More anglers started
