Summerhayes – Open – 7th April 2024

Before I get on to Sunday’s report, the previous evening it was Stoke AA’s presentation night at the working mens club. It was well attended and before the trophies were handed out, the clubs very own magician, Bob Pamplin, entertained us with a selection of tricks. After being suitably amazed and mystified, the second half of the double act and our host

Summerhayes – Silvers Open – 27th March 2024

When I phoned to book in for this one, Pete said there were only four other names on the list and I was in two minds whether to fish, especially as the weather was going to be rubbish again. Waking up and looking out the window at the wind and rain, I nearly got back into bed but decided to go as

Summerhayes – Open – 3rd March 2024

Only one match this weekend as Parker ‘The Pole’ and me headed to the Big One at Farnborough on Saturday. To be honest, the show has become very carp orientated but it’s still a good day out with the likes of Garbolino, Nu-Fish, Nytro and of course Guru well represented. The latter’s stand gets bigger and better every year and they had

Summerhayes – Open – 25th February 2024

The next day it was Sellicks at Summerhayes which I always look forward to although the forecast for the afternoon made grim reading with strong winds and heavy rain! Twelve fishing today including Toby ‘The Terminator’ Burrell who has been sent back in time by Skynet to dominate the silvers fishing at Summerhayes. On a blistering run of form, he’s completed his

Summerhayes – Silvers Open – 3rd February 2024

I was looking forward to the weekend and two days at Summerhayes, starting with a silvers match on Saturday. Twelve fishing today which is a good number on Sellicks as it means basically every other peg in. Pete announced the draw and I really fancied number 16 (my favourite peg) or any of the middle pegs on the far side. When it

Summerhayes – Open – 21st January 2024

I was looking forward to fishing Sellicks on Sunday although once again another named storm was due to let us have it with both barrels later on. The day started off nicely though with breakfast at the bowling club (thanks Charlotte) before we headed to Bridgwater. With 22 anglers fishing today it would be rather cosy and the silvers match had fished

Summerhayes – Silvers Open – 6th January 2024

The weekend arrived and with it, finally some decent weather, after a nice breakfast the day got off to a great start when Pete handed me £30 for having the best silvers weight of the year in 2023 with 45lb 7oz. Only 9 of us fishing today so plenty of room, I said to Zooner before the start I wanted to be

Summerhayes – Open – 26th December 2023

Boxing Day and it was back to Summerhayes, the first task was to find somewhere for breakfast and after driving to three separate places that were all closed, I was running out of options but Greggs in Bridgwater services came to my rescue! When I arrived at the fishery, there was a decent turnout of 14 including Bruce Hunt who I haven’t

Summerhayes – Open – 24th December 2023

It was back to Summerhayes on Xmas Eve and the match was on Sellicks which is my favourite lake. After a quick stop for breakfast with Parker ‘The Pole’ we headed to Bridgwater. 12 of us fishing today including Bill ‘The Silvers Slayer’ Hopping who had on a very impressive hat! The wind was howling down the lake so I was hoping

Summerhayes – Open – 12th November 2023

After a disappointing day yesterday we were back at Summerhayes for the Sunday open but on Sellicks this time, which is my favourite lake as there aren’t as many carp or tiny silvers. We met at the bowling club for breakfast (thanks Charlotte) and were joined by the Grand Wiz and Chanter who were fishing the Chard winter series. With our bellies
