Summerhayes – Mini Festival Day 1 – 3rd May 2015

I always look forward to these two day events and this weekend it was individuals and not pairs, on arriving there was a decent turnout of sixteen anglers including the Wickhams and fellow blogger Dom Sullivan, no sign of Brandon, thank God! I paid my pools for the two days and had a coffee before it was time to draw, we were all on Sellicks today and


Summerhayes – Pairs Festival Day Two – 6th April 2015

It was another glorious, sunny day as I made my way to Bridgwater for day two, as I arrived most people were already there and all the silvers anglers were hoping to avoid the carp pegs today and vice versa. Pete announced the draw and the anglers who had been in the high numbers yesterday were in the low numbers todays so Ray


Summerhayes – Open – 29th March 2015

Last week Pete said todays match would be on Longs unless there were more than twenty fishing, in which case we would be split over Longs and Sellicks with separate pay outs for both. We got there in good time and with twenty four anglers fishing there would be twelve on each lake. I didn’t mind which lake I drew but a


Summerhayes – Open – 22nd March 2015

The match was due to be on Sellicks today but as always it depends on numbers and if there are more than sixteen anglers, Pete puts in several pegs on Lily. As me and Janders pulled into the car park, it was rammed! We soon found out that there were 31 anglers booked in for today which meant nearly all the pegs


Summerhayes – Open – 21st December 2014

Ilminster didn’t have a match on this weekend so I booked into Summerhayes for my first match there since September. The weather is still incredibly mild for December although we have had the odd frost over the last couple of weeks. The match was supposed to be on Longs but Pete switched it to Sellicks as Longs was hard going on Wednesday with


Summerhayes – Open – 7th September 2014

It was back to Summerhayes today and I’ve been struggling here a bit of late, when I phoned Pete to put my name down he said it would be on Sellicks and possibly Lily (oh no!) depending on numbers. On arriving there were quite a few cars there already and I knew there would be some pegs on my least favourite pond.


Summerhayes – Pairs Festival Day One – 24th August 2014

I normally fish a few of Pete’s two day events but this year I’ve had fixture clashes on most of the Bank Holidays and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to fish this one unless I could find a partner. Glynn Wickham said his dad, Ray, was looking for someone and as he likes to fish for silvers as well, we paired


Summerhayes – Open – 30th March 2014

The weather was gorgeous again and it was starting to look like Spring had actually sprung! I met Rob at the Little Thief and we headed to Bridgwater, on arriving the car park was rammed as there was a match on Longs as well today. With a good turnout of sixteen for our match, the net bins were almost empty, the other


Summerhayes – Open – 23rd March 2014

When I spoke to Pete to put mine and Janders names down for this match, he said it would be on Longs today so after picking Janders up, I was a little disappointed on arriving to see all the cars parked by Sellicks! It was also really windy (just for a change!) and there were also some showers forecast – great! As


Summerhayes – Open – 9th March 2014

Last night I went to Scotty’s 40th (I know, he’s had a hard life!) at the Square and Compass and it was a really good night with two good bands, lovely food and it was nice to catch up with Scott and Ash, Alex Murray, James Cooper, Martin Addicot and Bean Searle who I haven’t seen for years and the legend that
