Targets for 2013

Now the weather is starting to get marginally better, my thoughts are turning to what I would like to achieve in 2013 fishing wise. There’s so much I want to do! Now most of my Sundays and days off are taken up with fishing matches as that’s my number one love but I’ve listed my targets below and it would be great

River Wye – Whiskers Wanted! – 4th November 2012

Justin Charles has been enjoying some great fishing on the Wye with barbel to nearly 10lb and pike to 18lb+ so with no match this weekend I jumped at the chance to head to Wales today. With the weather turning colder he thought we might stand a chance of a barbel or two but didn’t think we’d be catching as many as

Mission Impossible – River Tone – 27th October 2012

I have been trying to hook up (pun intended) with Russell Hilton who writes the excellent Tales From The Towpath blog for some time and we finally arranged to have a go at catching some pike today. I know next to nothing about catching pike so Russell said he’d bring all the gear and bait and sort out day tickets (top man). We

Mission Impossible Update – 16th August 2012

Badge number three arrived today, for my perch caught at Dillington recently I’m still hopeful I can get tench before the weather turns colder, come to think of it I’ve actually had tench, roach, carp, eels, crucians and rudd in recent matches but just haven’t weighed them or had photos taken! When the river fishing starts, I’ll hopefully be able to add

Dillington Pond – Summer League 7 – 5th August 2012

The pond has been fishing well in recent matches with 16-17lb weights needed to win and some quality roach featuring but that has been with plenty of colour in the water but that had dropped out today. I must admit I wasn’t really looking forward to fishing the whip all match so decided to fish a 10 metre pole line as well.

Mission Impossible Update – 24th April 2012

Just a quick update on my Mission Impossible, my second Korum Challenge badge arrived today for the bream/skimmer I caught down the resi. My chub badge is no longer lonely! When the weather warms up a bit, next on the hit list will be carp, tench and crucians and although not strictly a ‘Mission’, I haven’t forgotten Mr Mullet and will be

Chard Reservoir – Slab Hunting – 30th March 2012

Next up on my ‘Mission Impossible’ hit list was bream and possibly roach so I headed to the resi where I fancied I’d latch into a few, especially after Russell Hilton’s great session recently. Janders very kindly agreed to come down with me so I could borrow his trolley and we could head to the prolific pegs in the forties. Well, best

Mission Impossible? – 23rd March 2012

Back in February of this year I realised I’d never caught a grayling in 32 years of fishing and arranged a day on the River Tone with Scott Russell and despite less than favourable conditions I managed to catch a small grayling. It was a really enjoyable day and one which I repeated a few weeks back and caught another three ‘ladies’
