River Parrett – Mrs Williams Cup – 14th July 2024

After a lovely evening at The Ranch for Ruthie’s Cup Presentation Night we were back bright and early for breakfast before the next match on the Parrett. After we’d eaten, we headed to Kingsbury where Bob and Dave P would meet us at the bridge for a rolling draw. Everybody was hoping for an end peg as typically for a small river

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 13th July 2024

The silvers fishing is lovely at Todber but loads of different methods and baits seem to work and it changes from week to week while I just confuse myself and chase my tail in ever decreasing circles! So this Saturday I was going to keep things relatively simple (famous last words!), the waggler and feeder rods were staying at home and I

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 7th July 2024

The final round of Ruthie’s Cup arrived and there were five anglers still in with a shout of winning, Roy and Nick were both on 11 points with Burnsey, Craig L and Harry all just a point behind. The draw would be crucial and the stand out pegs in each section so far had been 14 at Thorney and 3, 4 and

Summerhayes – Silvers Open – 6th July 2024

I haven’t been to Summerhayes for a few weeks so phoned Pete to book in for the silvers match on Saturday which was on my favourite lake, Sellicks. After meeting Nick for a Greggs brekkie, we made the short trip to the venue. Only five of us fishing today so more of a knock up but at least we’d all have plenty

River Parrett – Huntsman Cup – 30th June 2024

The following day we were back on the Parrett and as I’ve said numerous times on the blog, even though the fishing can be rock hard and the river can kick you right where it hurts, they’re still some of my favourite matches of the year. The usual pegs were on my wish list along with peg 1 which was in this

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 29th June 2024

I enjoyed fishing the waggler in the last match and was hoping for another nice day doing the same but then Guy threw a spanner in the works by winning the midweek open with nearly 50lb of skimmers caught shallow on meat and never had a bite on the waggler! After meeting Nick, Norts and Parker ‘The Pole’ for breakfast we headed

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 23rd June 2024

For the penultimate round of Ruthie’s Cup we were back at Hebditch’s Pond, we met at The Ranch for breakfast which was lovely although somebody rushed off without paying, not mentioning any names but the rumour was he couldn’t wait to get to Thorney for Nudefest! With several anglers on 7 points, I was in the chasing pack on 6 but would

River Parrett – Evening Cup – 22nd June 2024

I always look forward to the matches on the Parrett, the fishing can be really challenging with 3lb a good weight but if you can achieve that, it’s very satisfying. The first fixture on the river is always the Evening Cup and although people tend to have an idea of which pegs they’d like, nobody really knows how it will fish. With

Revels Fishery – Open – 18th June 2024

Another trip to one of my all time favourite venues although I was a little disappointed when I got there and it was on Main and Trendles again. The draw got underway and as I was near the top of the list, I didn’t have long to wait to see where fate was putting me this week, Dean had a rummage in

Hebditch’s Pond – Ruthie’s Cup – 16th June 2024

Round two of Ruthie’s Cup and we were at Hebditch’s Pond, we all met at The Ranch for breakfast and were well looked after by Kirsty before it was time for the draw. It was pegs 12, 1, 2 and 3 for us this week with everyone hoping to draw 3 which along with 4 in the next section have been the
