Summerhayes – Open – 10th October 2021

Summerhayes was the destination for this Sunday’s match and it was on Sellicks lake which I haven’t fished for ages. We met at the bowling club for breakfast and it was busy with anglers heading to Avalon for a Stoke match. I sat with The Grand Wizard and Mr Burns who were fresh back from France where they’d caught loads of big

Summerhayes – Clive Cunningham’s Memorial Match – 31st July 2021

I don’t fish many Saturday matches but when I saw it was Clive’s memorial match and silvers only on Sellicks, I thought I’d give it a go as I haven’t been to Summerhayes for a while. Rob also said he fancied it so I booked us in for breakfast at the Brewer’s Fayre in Taunton and it was very good once again.

Summerhayes – Open – 5th April 2021

My third match in four days and I must admit I was starting to flag a little as I struggled to get my ancient aching bones out of bed! I stopped off at Greggs but it wasn’t open so had to settle for a bacon roll over at Costa, so not the best start and I hoped it wasn’t an omen! It

Summerhayes – Open – 18th August 2019

For part two of my double header I was back at Summerhayes but on Sellicks this time, a lake I really like but for the silvers you ideally need to be down either side rather than at the top end and preferably on the far side, pegs 17-21. I met Stevie P at the Toby and it was rammed with loads of

Summerhayes – Open – 6th May 2019

With it being a long weekend I booked into the match on Sellicks at Summerhayes, a quick pit stop at the Toby for breakfast and then onto Bridgwater. I arrived in plenty of time and the first person I saw was Big Frank who had turned up to pleasure fish on Longs, I had a quick chat before going to pay my

Summerhayes – Open – 5th August 2018

I was back for another go and it was on Sellicks this week, I stopped at the Little Thief for breakfast only to find the door locked and they now don’t open to 8:00, thankfully I only had to wait a few minutes and was soon tucking in and praying it wouldn’t be the best bite of the day! I arrived at the venue

Summerhayes – Open – 15th July 2018

It was back on Sellicks this week and I was really looking forward to it, that was until my phone alerted me that I had a text message and when I looked, I saw the name that everybody dreads appear on the screen, The Torquay Tart was informing me he was fishing and bringing some of his ‘disciples’ (his words) with him. After

Summerhayes – Open – 1st July 2018

I was at Summerhayes for the second match of the weekend and we were on Sellicks this week. As well as some of the regulars it was brilliant to see Paul Homewood who I hadn’t seen for ages, Ben Simmonds was also fishing again after winning on his first visit from peg 23 a few weeks back. Pete announced the draw and I

Summerhayes – Open – 20th May 2018

After getting back from Thailand late on Wednesday night, I wasn’t actually sure where I was going to fish this weekend and decided on Summerhayes as I haven’t been since the silvers final last year! I was up early and it was already looking like being a glorious day, I had a quick pit stop at the Little Chef in Ilminster before

Summerhayes – Open – 24th September 2017

After last week’s struggle I was looking forward to fishing Longs this Sunday but feared the worst when I saw on an angling clubs blog that they had it booked for a match and sure enough Pete phoned in the week to say we’d be on Sellicks again. I met Hurf at the Little Chef for breakfast as he was off to fish the
