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

Summerhayes – Open – 19th March 2017

It was back to Summerhayes this week and Janders was coming along to fish his first match in ages, the match was on Sellicks and there have been some good silvers weights coming out. I was actually early picking him up and even had time for a bacon roll while we waited for the draw. Looking at the lake, the pegs on

Summerhayes – Open – 12th June 2016

No Janders this week as he’s on his holidays down in Cornwall, I pulled into the fishery car park and judging by the number of vehicles I knew we wouldn’t just be on Sellicks today. One of the first people I bumped into was Glynn Wickham who said instead of Lily, the overflow would be on Willow today and everybody was expecting the

When I phoned Pete to book in during the week, I’d forgotten to ask which lake we’d be on, I picked Janders up and he said it was on Sellicks and possibly Lily, depending on numbers so obviously as we pulled into the car park I was hoping not to see too many vehicles! We collected a couple of nets before paying

The weather was glorious as I loaded the car and headed for Bridgwater and things got even better when I arrived and Pete said as there were fifteen anglers fishing today, we’d all be on Sellicks, so no Lily today! There was a match on Longs as well and just before they started, one of the anglers came up and had a

A double header at Summerhayes for me this weekend as it was a Bank Holiday (well it would be rude not to!), Sellicks and Lily today and Longs tomorrow. I picked Janders up on my way and we were soon pulling into the car park, it was nice to Mike Hosgood (who comes from somewhere near Exeter I believe!) as I hadn’t seen

Summerhayes – Open – 24th April 2016

After six matches on Longs, I knew Pete was putting us back on Sellicks for today and the silvers weights haven’t been great with Ray Wickham only needing two crucians for 4lb 11oz to win a few weeks back. When I pulled into the car park, one of the first people I met was Glynn who said the match was going to be

Summerhayes – Open – 6th September 2015

The last time I fished Summerhayes the match was switched to Longs so I knew it was supposed to be on Sellicks today and when I phoned Pete to put my name down, he confirmed it. That didn’t stop me from hoping he might have a change of heart again but on arriving there would be no such luck this time and Sellicks it

Summerhayes – Pairs Festival Day Two – 25th May 2015

After a really tough day yesterday, I was hoping we’d get a few more bites today. When I got there, it looked like the carp had finished doing their ‘business’ as they weren’t thrashing about anymore although I really didn’t know if this was a good or a bad thing as far as the fishing was concerned. Glynn and Nigel were leading both
