Summerhayes – Open – 30th April 2023

It was back to Summerhayes on Sunday but Longs this time, breakfast was at the bowling club and always starts the day off right. At the fishery, parking was at a premium with matches on both lakes. I drew peg 27 on the track side, a great area for silvers, Nick got the golden peg which was 18 on the bottom bank

Summerhayes – Open – 16th April 2023

A really long day yesterday, up at 5:45am to fish at Acorn, got home at 6:30pm, packed kit away, straight in the shower then to Stoke Sub Hamdon for the angling clubs presentation night at 7:30pm. It was a brilliant night with lots of laughs and a fantastic buffet was laid on, I actually went back up and filled my plate several

Summerhayes – Open – 9th April 2023

Up early again, I was feeling surprisingly fresh for my third match in as many days and met the others for one of Charlotte’s lovely breakfasts at the bowling club. As we pulled into the fishery car park, it was rammed! There were 31 booked in for our match, plus a club fixture on Sellicks. Along with all the usual suspects, there

Summerhayes – Open – 7th April 2023

I always try and fish a few matches over Easter but this year I’m attempting something I’m not sure I’ve ever done before and booked in for a match on all four days. Now knowing how knackered I am when I do two in a weekend, would this be a match (or two) too far! My fishing quadrilogy kicked off at Summerhayes

Summerhayes – Open – 26th March 2023

Well, today didn’t get off to the best of starts! After a long day yesterday, I fell asleep in the chair and woke up at one ‘o’ clock in the morning (well actually 2:00 am after the clocks went forward), by the time I actually got to bed and went to sleep, it was gone 3:00 and my alarm was set for

Summerhayes – Open – 19th March 2023

The second match of the weekend was on Longs at Summerhayes, we met at bowling club for breakfast first which was quite busy with lots of the Stoke lads off to Trinity for a pairs match. After we’d eaten we headed to Bridgwater, pulling into the car park, spaces were at a premium with twenty booked in for the open and there

Summerhayes – Open – 19th February 2023

Sunday kicked off with another lush bowling club brekkie thanks to Charlotte and we were joined by the Grand Wiz and Burnsey who were off to Trinity for the open. With our bellies full, we headed to Summerhayes and when we arrived, the car park was already busy with 21 anglers booked in. Pete announced the draw starting with the golden peg

Summerhayes – Open – 8th January 2023

The forecast was pretty grim again for the weekend and I think everybody is fed up with it now, we met at the bowling club for breakfast where Drew looked after us and the food and banter was top notch. Then we headed to the fishery and there was a decent turnout of 17 considering the weather and the fact there were

Summerhayes – Open – 2nd January 2023

After a couple of bad results to round off 2022, I was hoping for better things in my last match of the festive period and the first of the New Year. Summerhayes was the destination and once again Nick sorted us out with breakfast and we all bunged a fiver in the charity pot. I was hoping we’d be on Sellicks but

Summerhayes – Boxing Day Open – 26th December 2022

I always try and fit a few matches in over the Xmas period so Summerhayes was my next destination. Nick very kindly supplied breakfast again so some more money went into the charity pot. Les B said he fancied fishing Summerhayes for the first time so met us in the car park and followed us there. I didn’t think there’d be loads
