River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 28th January

I really needed a good result in this match as another blow out would say goodbye to any chance of a league placing. With the weather fairly mild and the river fishable for once, I was suprised to see only ten other anglers at the draw. I really fancied a peg at Isle Brewers as the roach have shoaled up really tightly

River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 14th January 2007

During the week, Baz Morgan (a very good angler from Langport) phoned me for advice on setting up a blog after reading mine. During the conversation he said he might fish the match today and when I arrived at the Crown he was there. 19 anglers eagerly awaited the draw and everybody was hoping to draw a golden peg as the fund

River Isle – Crown League – 7th January 2007

Well a new year has arrived but the weather hasn’t changed as it’s still very wet and windy, I turned up at the Crown fully expecting another match at Dillington only to be told the river was fishable. I drew peg 14 (the tank traps, where I won the first Hollowlegs match with over 18lb) and wasn’t too upset although I was

River Isle – Crown League – 17th December 2006

After four matches in this league I am jointly leading with two points along with Roger Russell. You can drop your two worst results and the trouble is, along with my two section wins I have two crap results and Barney is close behind with three points but has better back up results. There were ten anglers fishing and Robin and Barney

Xmas Fayre – River Isle – 10th December 2006

Twenty eager anglers awaited the draw for this prize bonanza but with rain forecast the outlook was fairly bleak (pun intended) and there was a chance this match could be a washout. I really fancied a chub peg as for most of the matches I have drawn Isle Brewers and where did I draw? Isle Brewers of course. I had the choice

River Isle – Crown League – 19th November 2006

After a lot of heavy rain in the week I was sort of hoping the river would be flooded and we could go out Dillington, this was not to be though and on my arrival at the Crown, reports were that the river was in good condition with a nice bit of colour. As is the norm with these matches the pegs

River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 12th November 2006

Another good turnout for this one, over twenty anglers. As we all waited for the draw I said to Andy that I really hoped I didn’t draw the Isle Brewers section. Andy stuck his hand in the bucket and pulled out peg 128 at Isle Brewers, I followed suit and drew poxy peg 124 – bugger! Now the pegs below the bridge,

River Isle – Crown League – 5th November 2006

This could be the shortest blog in my history! We tend to use the Crown league to try out new pegs and areas of the river that arn’t fished or haven’t been fished for ages. This week we were going to fish mainly the Ilford section, this section can be rather hit and miss, as you will see. I drew peg 45,

River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 29th October 2006

Felt a little rough this morning as I’d been to Dunner’s wedding reception the night before. When I got to the draw I was greeted by several other rather sickly looking individuals who had also been there. Andy not only looked rough but the clutch had gone on his van so he was not in the best of moods. As I’ve mentioned

River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 15th October 2006

Was up fairly early and raring to go, everything was going fine until the poxy cashpoint machine ate my card, after faffing about for ages I finally got to the Crown in Ilminster only slightly late. Luckily people were still finishing breakfast so I had time for a cup of coffee. This was to be the first match of the Hollowlegs (formally
