Summerhayes – Open – 19th September 2022

With a Bank Holiday on the Monday, there was a silvers only match on Longs, I booked in and Nick and Jenny said they fancied it as well and very kindly did some bacon and egg rolls for breakfast. They wouldn’t accept any payment so we all bunged a fiver in the charity pot. With 12 anglers fishing, we had plenty of

Summerhayes – Open – 29th August 2022

After a disappointing Bank Holiday weekend so far, I was hoping for better things today. The Breakfast Club assembled at Nicks for food which was lovely and as he wouldn’t accept any payment, the Nugget-O-Meter benefited by £10. On arriving at the fishery, I was a little surprised to see only ten booked in but I think there were several festivals on

Summerhayes – Open – 27th August 2022

A nice long Bank Holiday weekend can only mean one thing…. lots of fishing! First up was a Saturday match on Sellicks at Summerhayes. I met Nick P and Steve ‘The Pole’ at the bowling club for breakfast (thanks Drew) before heading to Bridgwater. There were nine booked in for this one which was slightly disappointing and then two of those didn’t

Summerhayes – Open – 14th August 2022

It was back to Summerhayes on Sunday with another great turnout of 28 anglers, Pete got the draw underway starting with the golden peg which today was number 19, a really good area for silvers. It was still in the bucket when my name was called out but I ended up on 26 towards the bottom end of the pegs along the

Summerhayes – Clive and Ray’s Memorial Match – 6th August 2022

I fished Clive Cunningham’s memorial match in 2021 and after sadly losing Ray Wickham, they decided to have a combined memorial match for this year. It started filling up quickly and in no time, there were 28 names down, a fantastic turn out and I was really looking forward to it, especially as it was silvers only. The Breakfast Club assembled at

Summerhayes – Open – 31st July 2022

We were back on Sellicks for this one and it was almost a full house with 22 anglers booked in. Young Geoff was fishing again but thankfully after his bout of garlic poisoning last time, he’d left his special pellets behind. Pete got the draw underway and today’s golden peg was number 17 which is a decent silvers area. My name was

Summerhayes – Open – 17th July 2022

Summerhayes was the destination for Sundays match which was on Longs. There was a great turn out of 21 anglers and Pete got the draw underway starting with the golden peg and the number 3 was plucked from the bucket. My name was midway down the list and I got peg 13 for the day, a decent area for silvers. Jacko ended

Summerhayes – Open – 3rd July 2022

On Sunday it was back to Summerhayes for the match on Longs which I was looking forward to as I haven’t been for a few weeks, me, Rob, Nick and Jenny met in Taunton for brekkie before heading to Bridgwater. When we got there I was pleasantly surprised when Pete said the match was on Sellicks as I really enjoy fishing it

Summerhayes – Open – 3rd June 2022

For the Friday match we were back at Summerhayes and it was on Longs again with 17 booked in to fish today. With everybody arrived and pools paid, it was time for the draw, Pete delved in the bucket to pull out the golden ball and emerged with……. a little plastic dinosaur! Jess (Zooner) had just come back from holiday and brought

Summerhayes – Open – 2nd June 2022

The start of the long weekend saw me booked into Summerhayes, we met up in Taunton for breakfast and the usual crew were joined by Picky and The Tart. Today’s match was supposed to be on Sellicks which I was really looking forward to, but due to numbers, Pete moved us onto Longs. Pete announced the draw and the golden peg was
