Landsend – 3rd April 2022

After a really enjoyable first visit for ages a couple of weeks ago, I was back again for a Stoke match. I had to defrost the car in the morning and it was a decidedly chilly start, the Ilminster posse met at the garage and headed off in convoy (10-4 rubber duck!). We had breakfast at the fishery and then the 16

Lakeview – 31st March 2022

As I had a week off work, I wanted to get out somewhere on Thursday so asked The Tart if he knew of anything and he said they were having a match at Lakeview if I fancied it and he invited Terry as well. I’d only fished it once back in 2019 and that day I’d been unfortunate to draw next to

Revels Fishery – Open – 29th March 2022

After several days of gorgeous weather, the forecast for today wasn’t so good with rain and lower temperatures but as always I was really looking forward to my Tuesday trip to Revels. I met Steve P for breakfast in Yeovil before we headed to the fishery. Tony C arrived as we were getting some bait and then when we pulled into the

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

Revels Fishery – Open – 22nd March 2022

My third match in four days and another 6:00 alarm meant I was starting to flag a bit but a cracking breakfast at the Airfield Tavern soon sorted me out and even better it was looking like being a gorgeous day. I was soon pulling into the car park at the fishery and there was another great turnout of 18 anglers fishing

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

Landsend – Open – 19th March 2022

I’d only ever fished Landsend once, a long, long time ago, in fact I couldn’t even tell you which lake I was on! After seeing regular results on social media, it looked lovely with some cracking nets of silvers so I finally got my act together and booked in for one of their Saturday matches. I was awake before my alarm and

Revels Fishery – Open – 15th March 2022

After getting drawn a brilliant peg and having a lovely days silvers fishing last Tuesday, I was hoping for more of the same this week. The weather was a lot better too and I even saw some glimpses of that big orange thing in the sky. The obligatory pit stop in Yeovil for breakfast set me up nicely for the day and

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

Revels Fishery – Open – 8th March 2022

I was back at Revels for another Tuesday open and I could get used to fishing regular mid week matches, it’s just a shame work gets in the way! The usual stop off for food in Yeovil which was really nice before heading to the fishery. I picked up some bait from the shop and the car park was pretty busy this
