Perry St Pond – Spring League 6 – 16th June 2019

For round six our destination was Perry Low and most of us met at Millfield cafe for another fantastic breakfast before heading out the pond to do the draw. Once again it looked like the British Summer was on hold as while we were unloading the cars, it chucked it down! Smithy took shelter in the back of his van but more

Spotlight On….. Bait

Bait is obviously an essential part of what we do and if you walk into any tackle shop you will be confronted by a wall of colourful packaging with a multitude of different aromas from the heavenly and gorgeous to the downright disgusting! It’s a massive industry with new firms seemingly popping up all the time and with each new groundbait and

Trinity Waters – 9th June 2019

The next Stoke AA match was at Trinity Waters, a venue I’ve only ever fished once before, way back in 2014, re-reading that blog post, I’d really enjoyed it and said I’d be back soon but it’s actually taken me five years! With it being quite a while since I last visited, I tried to get some up to date info and

New Bait-Tech products for 2019

When Bait-Tech started publicising their new product range for 2019 earlier this year, it was a fairly modest release compared to previous years but there were some right crackers amongst them with several complimenting existing ranges perfectly. Pro Natural Bream Dark – I love the Pro Nat range of groundbaits and use them for nearly all of my fishing on lakes and

Sadborow – Spring League 5 – 2nd June 2019

We were back at Sadborow for round five and after a gorgeous hot and sunny day on Saturday, I was hoping for more of the same but as I loaded the car, it was overcast and looking like we’d be in for some rain. We met at Millfield cafe for breakfast and after everybody was fed and watered, it was time to

Summerhayes – Open – 27th May 2019

Another Bank Holiday means another days fishing so I booked into Summerhayes but this time the match was on Longs. I stopped at the Toby for breakfast but was a little early (yes you read that right, early!) and as I parked up, Alvin, Debs and Jess (Zooner) were already outside waiting for it to open. With our bellies full, it was

Todber Manor – 26th May 2019

For my second match with Stoke AA we were on Hill View at Todber Manor, Steve P contacted me in the week and said he wouldn’t mind giving it go so I met him bright and early at Cartgate for breakfast (well I was a bit late so nothing new there!). We made good time and were soon at the fishery, I

Fishing in Namibia 2019 – David Rigden

My latest guest post is David Rigden’s excellent account of his recent trip to Namibia fishing for bronze whaler sharks. I stepped off the plane at Cork Airport, still two hours to drive home, feeling like I needed a fortnight’s holiday … In fact the holiday was over; it had been enjoyable, but tiring. Two weeks earlier I’d set off on my

Perry St Pond – Spring League 4 – 19th May 2019

After three rounds, there was another open draw for sections which put me in with the Tart (so no chance of drawing a corner then!) and they also re-jigged the pegging slightly with Perry St reverting to the high and low numbers and the section draw put us on the high numbers this week (pegs 11 to 20). Another brilliant breakfast at

Selfie Fish Review

Peejay Tackle boss Paul Jessop has been a supporter of the blog for a long time and recently he’s started working with Selfie Fish, a nifty little gadget for taking catch shots when you’re fishing on your own. The majority of anglers these days just use their phones and unless you can get a friendly passer-by to take a quick snap for
