Summerhayes – Open – 2nd May 2022

For the Bank Holiday Monday we were at Summerhayes and the match was on Sellicks again, I met Nick and Terry for breakfast in Taunton and then it was on to Bridgwater. Another great turnout of 17 anglers including Adie Bishop who I haven’t seen for ages. All too soon it was time for the draw and as I’d booked in first

Summerhayes – Open – 18th April 2022

For my third match in four days, I was back at Summerhayes and it was on Longs this time. After meeting Nick and Jenny in Taunton for breakfast we headed to the venue. The car park was filling up fast with 21 anglers booked in, unfortunately one of those was The Tart who was seriously flagging after fishing every day. With a

Summerhayes – Open – 15th April 2022

With it being Easter and a long weekend, I always try and fit a few matches in so would be at Summerhayes on Friday and Monday and Hebditch’s on the Sunday for a charity match which I was really looking forward to. I could have fished at Summerhayes on the Saturday as well but I just can’t do four days on the

Summerhayes – Open – 10th April 2022

It was back to Summerhayes for another match on Sellicks this week and after a frost with 20 anglers fishing, I felt it would fish hard like the last time we were here with around 60lb to win overall and 8lb to take the silvers. I met Nick in Taunton for breakfast before we headed to the fishery and very nice it

Summerhayes – Open – 27th March 2022

It was back to Summerhayes and this weeks match was on Sellicks. A few of us had breakfast at the bowling club first (thanks Drew) and then it was on to the fishery which was already starting to get busy with matches on both lakes. With 21 anglers booked in for our match and it being sunny, bright and the lake flat

Summerhayes – Open – 20th March 2022

Part two of my weekend double header was at Summerhayes and we were on Longs this time. There was a decent turnout for this one with 16 anglers fishing including Chris ‘Gappy’ Parr, Paul Purchase and Steve Jackson along with all the usual suspects. Pete got the draw underway and when my name came out, peg 39 was my home for the

Summerhayes – Open – 13th March 2022

With no Ilminster or Stoke matches this weekend, I booked into Summerhayes and Steve P, Nick and Jenny fancied it as well. Drew very kindly said he’d accommodate us for breakfast which was really nice of him. It was on Sellicks and the weather looked like being awful again, to make matters worse, the Tart had been in touch to say he

Summerhayes – Open/Knock-up – 20th February 2022

When I phoned Pete to book in for this one he said there were club bookings on both Longs and Sellicks so the match would be on Willow, not my favourite lake if I’m honest but it does hold some silvers. Once again the forecast was really grim and we were in for yet another wet and windy day. Things didn’t start

Summerhayes – Open – 14th November 2021

I was back at Summerhayes again on the Sunday and after a lovely day yesterday, I was hoping for more of the same. Steve P was fishing again and Rob C said he fancied it as well so we all met for breakfast in Taunton and Dave H, who was fishing the Viaduct, also joined us. After eating we headed to Bridgwater

Summerhayes – Charlie Barnes Memorial Match – 13th November 2021

Now in it’s third year, I always look forward to Charlie’s match as it’s silvers only and one I’d love to win. I met Steve P for brekkie in Taunton before heading to Bridgwater. There was a good turnout and it was great to see Nigel Coram and Harry Muir plus the usual crew. After a coffee and a natter, Jeff got
