Summerhayes – Open – 18th February 2024

The following day we were back at Summerhayes with the match on Longs again and another great turnout of 24 (including Karl Aplin who I haven’t seen for ages). I was third on the list this week and delved into the bucket hoping to pull out pegs 12, 13 or 19 and came close with number 11 which I was fairly happy

Ivy House – Fish South Silvers Qualifier – 17th February 2024

Saturday was another Fish South Silvers Qualifier at Ivy House, I’d really enjoyed my first visit (although drawing a bunghole always helps!) and along with Nick, Norts had also bought a ticket for this one. After the alarm went off at a rather unsociable 4:30am, I met the others an hour later and we arrived at the fishery nice and early. We

Summerhayes – Open – 11th February 2024

After Toby ‘The Pellet Pro’ Burrell’s dominance at Summerhayes over the last few weeks, there would be some micros and expanders on my side tray today (and a few others as well, I’m sure!). Parker ‘The Pole’, Nick and me met for another of Charlotte’s lovely breakfasts before heading to Bridgwater. 26 anglers booked in for this one I have to say

Todber Manor – Silvers Open – 10th February 2024

I haven’t fished Todber for a while so when I saw on Facebook they were turning Ash into a silvers lake and had taken a lot of the carp out, I thought it could be really interesting. Early match results looked good, 20lb+ needed to frame with lots of small fish, some decent skimmers plus odd tench and perch making up the

Summerhayes – Open – 4th February 2024

After yesterday, I was hoping for better things on Longs today but first a cracking breakfast at the bowling club set us up for the day ahead. A decent turnout as always with 21 fishing today and after a coffee it was time for the draw, I was top of the list so first in the bucket and hoping to pull out

Summerhayes – Silvers Open – 3rd February 2024

I was looking forward to the weekend and two days at Summerhayes, starting with a silvers match on Saturday. Twelve fishing today which is a good number on Sellicks as it means basically every other peg in. Pete announced the draw and I really fancied number 16 (my favourite peg) or any of the middle pegs on the far side. When it

Summerhayes – Open – 28th January 2024

On Sunday it was back to Summerhayes with the match on Longs this week. Although it had been a few degrees warmer overnight, I still thought it might be quite tricky today with around 8lb a good silvers weight. Another decent turnout of 18 anglers and the bonus ball was peg 11 today, when it was my turn, I pulled out 32

Viaduct Fishery – Open – 27th January 2024

Something a little bit different on Saturday, with the Viaduct fishing really well for silvers, I booked in for only my third match there in 11 years! Trying to get some info, I messaged Sam Williams who has been doing really well there and he couldn’t have been more helpful, cheers mate! After a frosty start I met Nick for breakfast at

Richard Chapman Interview

I haven’t done an interview since the Covid lockdown so another was well overdue and I really enjoyed this one…… Hi Richard, thank you very much for agreeing to answer my questions, Firstly can you tell us a little bit about yourself, how you got into fishing and the first fish you caught? It was a bit of a strange one, I’d

Summerhayes – Open – 21st January 2024

I was looking forward to fishing Sellicks on Sunday although once again another named storm was due to let us have it with both barrels later on. The day started off nicely though with breakfast at the bowling club (thanks Charlotte) before we headed to Bridgwater. With 22 anglers fishing today it would be rather cosy and the silvers match had fished
