Summerhayes – Open – 17th July 2011

With nothing on locally, I booked in to fish at Summerhayes and Janders fancied a days fishing too. The match was on Sellicks but the forecast was awful though, with gale force winds and rain predicted. I picked John up and we made good time, I’d even done him some soft pellets (makes a change from Scotty doing them for me!). There

Summerhayes – Open – 5th June 2011

With nothing on locally I booked in for another match at Summerhayes with it being on Sellicks this week. I did well on Sellicks last year and I was hoping this would continue. Scotty and Roger were fishing as well as the usual crew and Scott did my expanders once again (aww isn’t he lovely!). I pulled out peg 12 which is

Summerhayes – Open – 30th May 2011

After a bacon sarnie it was off to Summerhayes to see if I could break my jinx on Longs. I got to the draw just in the nick of time and there was a good turnout including some stars, Bob Gullick, Tom Thick, Gary O Shea, Steve Tucker and Alex Murray to name a few. I pulled out peg 12 which put

Summerhayes – Open – 25th April 2011

After a few bevvies last night, my head was a little woolly for this one, after a couple cups of coffee I was on my way to Summerhayes for the draw at 11. I got there and paid my pools and said hello to Scott and Roger and then saw Bob Gullick who I haven’t seen for a good ten years and

Summerhayes – Open – 17th April 2011

With no Chard or Ilminster matches I phoned Pete at Summerhayes and he said there was a match on Lily Pond, so I stuck my name down. I haven’t fished this pond before so I asked Scotty about it and he said it could be hard and that his Dad had won a match with 6lb odd of skimmers. Oh well it

Summerhayes – Open – 12th September 2010

Scotty text me on Saturday to say the match was on Sellicks and not on Longs so I wouldn’t be breaking my duck this weekend, still I quite enjoy Sellicks and have been doing ok of late. There were twelve of us fishing including Scott and Roger Russell, after a coffee and bacon sarnie it was time to draw. The golden ball

Summerhayes – Evening Match – 26th August 2010

With the nights drawing in, this was to be the last evening fixture on Sellicks of the year and although the weather wasn’t great it was better than yesterday. There was a rather depleted turnout due to several anglers getting a soaking at Durleigh yesterday, the stay aways included Alvin, Scotty and Bruce Hunt. I drew peg 9 and Roger was on

Summerhayes – Open – 15th August 2010

With nothing else on, I booked into the open at Summerhayes, I had to pick Scotty up in the morning as he had a heavy night! The match today was on Longs pond and there are more silvers than Sellicks so I was looking forward to a good day. There were around 20 anglers booked in and I managed to pull out

Summerhayes – Evening Match – 12th August 2010

I was looking forward to another evening ‘sprint’ at Summerhayes and was determined to just fish down the track tonight as I was sure 30lb or so could be achieved and this is normally enough to get in the frame. Also you tend to catch more silvers down the track and normally between 5-8lb is enough to win the silvers pool. There

Summerhayes – Evening Match – 5th August 2010

With the Dillington evening league over I decided to fish a few of the Summerhayes evening matches so I can get my twice weekly angling fix! With the forecast being for a windy night, Scotty was in two minds whether to fish or not but when I arrived he was there! Of course I was pleased to see him but it also
