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

Summerhayes – Open – 17th September 2017

This weeks match was on Sellicks and as I hadn’t heard anything from the Tart I was hoping he’d gone into hibernation for the winter but no such luck and as I turned into the car park, his van was already there. I said hello before going to get some nets and Pete has just got a load of smart new Mosella

Summerhayes – Open – 20th August 2017

It was back to Summerhayes this week for the first time since June and looking at the latest results on Sellicks, the carp have been getting their heads down and proving to be a real nuisance for the silvers anglers. I picked Janders up and we made good time, as we pulled into the car park, the first person I saw was the Tart

Summerhayes – Open – 28th May 2017

This weeks match was on Sellicks and I was really hoping I could get away from the low numbers and draw a peg near the top or on the far bank, on arrival it was nice to see Paul Homewood for the first time in ages and several of the Torquay contingent were also in attendance although, thankfully, the Tart wasn’t one

Summerhayes – Open – 23rd April 2017

It was back to Summerhayes and back on Sellicks this Sunday, I was really hoping for a draw on the other side but when the bucket reached me there were only two pegs left and Gabe Skarba said he’d have the last peg so I went in and peg 5 wasn’t the result I’d hoped for and Gabe ended up on peg

Summerhayes – Open – 9th April 2017

After a really nice day at the Big One yesterday, I woke up to blue skies, the sun shining and it was looking like being a lovely day, I just needed to catch a few fish now. I picked Janders up and we reached the venue in plenty of time, we were just going to collect some nets when we could see
