Perry St Pond – Spring League – 15th April 2007

After my not very good start to the spring league in the last match I was hoping for better things this time around. At the draw I did think about playing my joker where you get double points but decided against it. Several anglers did including my mate Andy, Janders and Mark Hollister. The draw was announced and none of the anglers

Perry St Pond – 6th April 2007

We always used to fish the Stillwater Cup on Good Friday, we no longer fish for the trophy but still have the match. The draw wasn’t until 11 ‘o’ clock and I was at the pond well early, as everybody turned up there was the usual banter before the draw took place. I drew peg 13 which always used to be a

Perry St Pond – Spring League – 1st April 2007

After a recent stocking of small carp the pond has been fishing really well with winning weights up to 60lb and 30lb+ needed to frame. Although carp arn’t really my thing I was quite looking forward to this one. At the draw I saw lots of faces I hadn’t seen for a while, Tommy Lee, Graham ‘Dino’ Pepper, Rockin’ Roy and Butch

Landsend Fisheries – 25th March 2007

This match was the first time I had visited Landsend and with tales of big bags of silverfish I was quite looking forward to it. After losing an hours sleep due to the clocks going forward I was on my way. I found the fishery fairly easily and there were some faces at the draw I hadn’t seen for a while, Big

Ilminster Canal – Crown League – 18th March 2007

The final match arrived and after a cracking week’s weather we were confronted by strong gusty winds and the possibility of rain, hail and even snow! Only seven anglers were at the draw and as per usual the match was to be split into two sections, I drew peg 3 which was in the section of four anglers which included Martin Heard

Dillington Pond – 15th March 2007

A friend at work, Andrea Simpson, asked if I would take her fishing and as I had the week off and the weather forecast looked ok, I agreed. I met her in Ilminster and after bacon sarnies we went out Dillington, the pond looked nice and I set up a waggler and the pole. I couldn’t catch on the waggler but a

River Isle – Hollowlegs League – 11th March 2007

The last match in this league and, wonders will never cease, we were actually able to get on the river. This match was also the last chance we would have of fishing the Isle until October. Twelve of us lined up to await our fate for the next five and a half hours, including Janders who agreed to a side bet as

Dillington Pond – Crown League – 4th March 2007

After yet more torrential rain (when will it ever end?) the match was again switched to the pond. With non stop rain and heavy winds forecast there were only seven hardy souls willing to brave the elements, make that six as Neil Dring didn’t fancy the pond and decided a day in to watch his beloved Spurs take on West Ham was

Dillington Pond – Hollowlegs League – 25th February 2007

After yet more rain, the match was switched to Dillington again which I wasn’t too upset about as I have been doing well there. I drew peg 9 which was by the pumphouse, which is where I was on the last match here. The first suprise on reaching the pond was that pegs one to three were taken up by pleasure anglers,

River Isle – Crown League – 18th February

For weeks I have been taking my reels in the hope I draw peg 125 at Isle Brewers, one of the few pegs where the waggler is number one choice. While waiting for the draw I could see peg 125 was in but there were also a couple of pegs I really didn’t want, 82 and 39. I stuck my hand in
