Trinity Waters – 9th June 2019

The next Stoke AA match was at Trinity Waters, a venue I’ve only ever fished once before, way back in 2014, re-reading that blog post, I’d really enjoyed it and said I’d be back soon but it’s actually taken me five years! With it being quite a while since I last visited, I tried to get some up to date info and

New Bait-Tech products for 2019

When Bait-Tech started publicising their new product range for 2019 earlier this year, it was a fairly modest release compared to previous years but there were some right crackers amongst them with several complimenting existing ranges perfectly. Pro Natural Bream Dark – I love the Pro Nat range of groundbaits and use them for nearly all of my fishing on lakes and

Sadborow – Spring League 5 – 2nd June 2019

We were back at Sadborow for round five and after a gorgeous hot and sunny day on Saturday, I was hoping for more of the same but as I loaded the car, it was overcast and looking like we’d be in for some rain. We met at Millfield cafe for breakfast and after everybody was fed and watered, it was time to

Summerhayes – Open – 27th May 2019

Another Bank Holiday means another days fishing so I booked into Summerhayes but this time the match was on Longs. I stopped at the Toby for breakfast but was a little early (yes you read that right, early!) and as I parked up, Alvin, Debs and Jess (Zooner) were already outside waiting for it to open. With our bellies full, it was

Todber Manor – 26th May 2019

For my second match with Stoke AA we were on Hill View at Todber Manor, Steve P contacted me in the week and said he wouldn’t mind giving it go so I met him bright and early at Cartgate for breakfast (well I was a bit late so nothing new there!). We made good time and were soon at the fishery, I

Fishing in Namibia 2019 – David Rigden

My latest guest post is David Rigden’s excellent account of his recent trip to Namibia fishing for bronze whaler sharks. I stepped off the plane at Cork Airport, still two hours to drive home, feeling like I needed a fortnight’s holiday … In fact the holiday was over; it had been enjoyable, but tiring. Two weeks earlier I’d set off on my

Perry St Pond – Spring League 4 – 19th May 2019

After three rounds, there was another open draw for sections which put me in with the Tart (so no chance of drawing a corner then!) and they also re-jigged the pegging slightly with Perry St reverting to the high and low numbers and the section draw put us on the high numbers this week (pegs 11 to 20). Another brilliant breakfast at

Selfie Fish Review

Peejay Tackle boss Paul Jessop has been a supporter of the blog for a long time and recently he’s started working with Selfie Fish, a nifty little gadget for taking catch shots when you’re fishing on your own. The majority of anglers these days just use their phones and unless you can get a friendly passer-by to take a quick snap for

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 12th May 2019

For part two of my double header I was fishing my first match with Stoke AA at Hebditch’s Pond, a venue I always enjoy fishing. It was for charity and the format was something a bit different in that we’d fish for four hours, have an hours break to weigh in and have something to eat before fishing another four hours (so

Goodiford Mill – 11th May 2019

It’s not very often I fish a double header at the weekend but when the Tart said there was a match at Goodiford on the Saturday, I thought I’d give it a go and was really looking forward to it, especially when a match in the week was won with over 200lb! Then on the Sunday I was fishing my first match
