Hebditch’s Pond – Charity Match – 17th April 2022

Match two of three and I always look forward to these charity matches, a cracking venue, great banter with a lovely bunch of people and hopefully a few fish too. As always we got the day off to the perfect start with a fantastic breakfast at the bowling club (thanks Charlotte and Drew) before heading to the draw. After everybody had arrived

Summerhayes – Open – 15th April 2022

With it being Easter and a long weekend, I always try and fit a few matches in so would be at Summerhayes on Friday and Monday and Hebditch’s on the Sunday for a charity match which I was really looking forward to. I could have fished at Summerhayes on the Saturday as well but I just can’t do four days on the

Stoke AA Presentation Night

Saturday 9th April I haven’t been to a presentation evening for a very long time as fishing for trophies just sort of fizzled out with the clubs I belonged to, I can’t really recall why and I have to say I rather miss it! Anyway due to Covid, Stoke didn’t have one last year so this would be a double one. Chris

Summerhayes – Open – 10th April 2022

It was back to Summerhayes for another match on Sellicks this week and after a frost with 20 anglers fishing, I felt it would fish hard like the last time we were here with around 60lb to win overall and 8lb to take the silvers. I met Nick in Taunton for breakfast before we headed to the fishery and very nice it

Revels Fishery – Open – 5th April 2022

I’ve absolutely loved fishing twice a week with the last five Tuesdays spent at Revels but with my annual leave used up, this would be the last one for a little while. In four of those I’ve drawn good silvers areas and enjoyed myself so much I didn’t want the matches to end, culminating in my best day yet last Tuesday when

Landsend – 3rd April 2022

After a really enjoyable first visit for ages a couple of weeks ago, I was back again for a Stoke match. I had to defrost the car in the morning and it was a decidedly chilly start, the Ilminster posse met at the garage and headed off in convoy (10-4 rubber duck!). We had breakfast at the fishery and then the 16

Lakeview – 31st March 2022

As I had a week off work, I wanted to get out somewhere on Thursday so asked The Tart if he knew of anything and he said they were having a match at Lakeview if I fancied it and he invited Terry as well. I’d only fished it once back in 2019 and that day I’d been unfortunate to draw next to

Revels Fishery – Open – 29th March 2022

After several days of gorgeous weather, the forecast for today wasn’t so good with rain and lower temperatures but as always I was really looking forward to my Tuesday trip to Revels. I met Steve P for breakfast in Yeovil before we headed to the fishery. Tony C arrived as we were getting some bait and then when we pulled into the

Summerhayes – Open – 27th March 2022

It was back to Summerhayes and this weeks match was on Sellicks. A few of us had breakfast at the bowling club first (thanks Drew) and then it was on to the fishery which was already starting to get busy with matches on both lakes. With 21 anglers booked in for our match and it being sunny, bright and the lake flat

Revels Fishery – Open – 22nd March 2022

My third match in four days and another 6:00 alarm meant I was starting to flag a bit but a cracking breakfast at the Airfield Tavern soon sorted me out and even better it was looking like being a gorgeous day. I was soon pulling into the car park at the fishery and there was another great turnout of 18 anglers fishing
