2018 Yearly Review

A look back at 2018 January 2018 It was bitterly cold for the first match of the year but the river had some colour and looked spot on, I drew peg 124a again and had quite an enjoyable day landing three chub and some nice roach for 8lb 10oz, third place and my first pick up of the year. Adie Bishop won with

2017 Yearly Review

With 2017 disappearing in our rear view mirrors, here’s my look back over the previous twelve months, January 2017 We were on the Isle for New Years Day and I got just the start I wanted when I drew 106 but freezing rain and a cold wind made it very uncomfortable and I only had two sticklebacks! The other two at Redbridge struggled as

2016 Yearly Review

As the year draws to a close, here’s my look back over the previous twelve months, January 2016  To kick off the New Year, we visited a new venue, Hebditch’s Pond and the weather was hideous with strong winds and driving rain.

I finished with 4lb 12oz for

2013 Yearly Review

Here’s my review of 2013 January 2013 My first match of the year was at Summerhayes and I fished bread for carp for most of the day, I did okay and weighed 27lb odd but no coin and I was left wishing I’d fished for silvers. Scotty won the match with a fantastic 101lb 8oz. My next match was on the Isle and

2012 Yearly Review

This year I thought I’d do a yearly review which is something new for my blog and what a year it’s been! January I started the year off down at Chard Reservoir and despite it being pretty hard going, I managed to win my section with three roach and a skimmer for 2lb 14oz. My next outing was to my favourite venue,
