Dillington Pond – 23rd September 2007

After a week off I was raring to go for this one although the weather was set to be wet and windy. Amazingly I drew peg one for the third match running (and the scales). The pond looked good with fish topping and the wind was blowing into the willow to my right. I had Big Frank on peg two and could

Dillington Pond – Summer League – 9th September 2007

The last match arrived with me lying in second place in the league, three points behind Graham Field and in all reality the only way I was going to beat him was if he didn’t turn up! This went out the window when I walked into the Crown and he was there. Still I had to try and hang on to second

Dillington Pond – Summer League – 2nd September 2007

Haven’t mentioned mine and Andy’s Evesham trip yet, well it was as excellent as ever. We drank far too much and met a couple of nice young ladies, Oh! and we watched a bit of fishing. Milo Columbo won day one with 6lb odd (which included a decent tench), on day two a chap had two carp! for over 20lb from peg

Dillington Pond – Summer League – 19th August 2007

As I’m doing ok in this Summer league I had to miss the teams of five match on Stathe drain and handed over the captains armband to Les Braunton. I needed a good result in this one as Graham Field is currently leading the league with 5 points followed by me on 7 and I couldn’t afford for him to stretch his

Stathe Drain – Langport League – 12th August 2007

As my team, Chard Remains, is currently propping up the league our only hope of silverware this year is the knockout cup which starts with this match and runs over the remaining fixtures on Stathe drain. I did the draw for the team and managed to get an end peg for Steve Bush who was on B8, my peg D6 was also

Dillington Pond – Summer League – 5th August 2007

I was really looking forward to this one as the forecast was good and I really enjoy fishing this venue and up until the last couple of matches I have had some good results. I got to the draw a little late and once again there was a good turnout of twelve anglers including a couple of ‘muggers’, Bruce Hunt and Martin

River Parrett – Langport League – 29th July 2007

After even more rain (will it ever end?), this was another match I wasn’t looking forward to. I did the draw and yet again avoided any end pegs. In three matches I’ve managed one end peg for the team – not a good ratio. My destination for today was peg C2 at Cocklemoor, I got there and the river was chocolate and

Dillington Pond – Summer League – 22nd July 2007

After last weeks relative disaster I had been looking forward to this one all week. I got to the Crown for the draw and things didn’t get off to a good start when I spilt coffee all down my trousers! I hope it wasn’t an omen. Once again there was a bumper turnout of twelve anglers, the winner of the last match,

Langport League – River Parrett – 15th July 2007

After our fourth place in the last match I was hoping for another decent performance from the team in this match. At the draw I once again managed to avoid any end pegs but thankfully also avoided the dreaded scales or weighboards. My peg was C7 on the Coombe stretch where I’ve done alright in the past. The river looked in good

Dillington Pond – Summer League – 8th July 2007

It looked like being a gorgeous day as I arrived at the Crown for the draw with the sun blazing down. All the anglers who fished the last match were here along with Yeovil Angling Centre boss, Scotty Russell. I didn’t really mind where I drew as long as it wasn’t the pumphouse as that swim hasn’t been kind to me. The
