Summerhayes – Open – 3rd July 2022

On Sunday it was back to Summerhayes for the match on Longs which I was looking forward to as I haven’t been for a few weeks, me, Rob, Nick and Jenny met in Taunton for brekkie before heading to Bridgwater. When we got there I was pleasantly surprised when Pete said the match was on Sellicks as I really enjoy fishing it

Todber Manor – Garbolino Club Angler Of The Year Qualifier – 29th June 2022

I’ve fished this event for the last two years and although I’ve enjoyed doing something a bit different, it’s made me realise how out of my depth I am with this type of fishing. I met Andy, Norts and Terry in Yeovil for breakfast which was very good. All the talk was how we wanted to avoid Whitepost as it can’t compete

River Parrett – Stoke vs Ilminster – 26th June 2022

This is the fourth year the two clubs have contested The Isle & Parrett Challenge Shield and as the current holders we were keen to defend the trophy. The first leg was ‘away’ on the Parrett with two sections at Kingsbury and Parrett Works. The opposing teams would be on alternate pegs with ten points for a section win, nine for second

Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 19th June 2022

After a lovely evening on the Parrett, I was hoping for more of the same in the charity match the following day on Hebditch’s Pond. After not that much sleep, The Breakfast Club assembled at The Airfield Tavern in Yeovil, the food was good and the banter even better as The Grand Wiz recounted (several times), the tale of the lost river

River Parrett – Evening Cup – 18th June 2022

I always look forward to the Stoke river matches getting underway, it’s a lovely bit of water and even though 3-4lb is a normally a good weight, it’s really enjoyable fishing. The first round of the six match series is an evening match on the Saturday and with the draw at 14:45, it gave us chance to meet for lunch at the

Coombe Farm – IAA Spar Summer League 2 – 12th June 2022

For round two of the IAA Spar sponsored Summer League, we were swapping lakes and after Jake’s fantastic 75lb weight of skimmers in the last round, those of us on the bottom lake this time were hoping it would fish as well again. After another excellent breakfast at the bowling club, it was time for the draw starting with the anglers on

Thorney Lakes – 5th June 2022

For my fourth match in six days we were at Thorney Lakes for the next round of the Stoke AA Rose Bowl lake series. I had toyed with the idea of fishing on Saturday as well but after some carp carnage in the week, I needed to make some rigs up and put new elastics in etc. If I’m honest I was

Summerhayes – Open – 3rd June 2022

For the Friday match we were back at Summerhayes and it was on Longs again with 17 booked in to fish today. With everybody arrived and pools paid, it was time for the draw, Pete delved in the bucket to pull out the golden ball and emerged with……. a little plastic dinosaur! Jess (Zooner) had just come back from holiday and brought

Summerhayes – Open – 2nd June 2022

The start of the long weekend saw me booked into Summerhayes, we met up in Taunton for breakfast and the usual crew were joined by Picky and The Tart. Today’s match was supposed to be on Sellicks which I was really looking forward to, but due to numbers, Pete moved us onto Longs. Pete announced the draw and the golden peg was

Revels Fishery – Open – 31st May 2022

Thanks to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we’ve got a nice long Bank Holiday weekend to look forward to, which of course means lots of fishing! I thought I’d get the celebrations started early and booked a day off work to go and fish the Tuesday open at Revels. A cracking breakfast set me up for the day before I headed into deepest,
